Joyce Wrice's Guide to LA

Songstress Joyce Wrice credits travel and the work of the West Coast's Jazz and R&B veterans as her best forms of education. Joyce resides in LA, a place she nods to as a city of contrasts - “you can be at the beach, up in the snow/mountains, then hike at some cool forest like place”. Here are her best spots in the city.

Ramenya

"One of my favorite Japanese/Korean restaurants located around Palms. Beef tongue, Thai glass noodle, daikon nori nori, shishito peppers, shumai, tom yum ramen and some hot sake will have you in your baaaaaaaaaag"

Veronica's Kitchen

"This is a Nigerian restaurant in Inglewood! I really like their okra stew! It's so spicy. I would go here and make sure to have a couple hours to spare because sometimes it takes a while to get your food"

Bowl Thai

"This is a Thai restaurant in Gardena! I love savory and spicy burn-your-stomach type of food. Their tom yum soup is my favorite!"

The Underground Museum

"This museum is in mid city. It has movie nights in their purple garden and a beautiful bookstore with vinyl, clothing, and candles. You can also just hang out in the garden to read, write, listen to music etc."

The Serving Spoon

"This is a really good breakfast, lunch, dinner soul food restaurant in Inglewood and they play great r&b!! I love their pork chops and free mimosas on Sunday I believe ;) Get there early because it gets pretty crowded"

Watts Coffee House

"Delicious egg bread french toast! Beautiful memorabilia. This space used to be the spot many artists, poets, and black panther party members gathered at to hold open mics at in the 1960s"
