Miguel and Jeremy Fall Take Us On A Culinary Journey Through LA

Grammy Award winner Miguel and restaurateur Jeremy Fall may have completely different vocations, but they both agree on the fact that LA is a cultural melting pot with a food scene that is one of a kind. Made up of immigrant communities from all over the world, LA comes through with almost every type of cuisine imaginable. Everything from hole in the wall sushi spots and hamburgers to tacos and fine dining, “there’s something for everyone” in the city, says Jeremy. Read below to see Miguel and Jeremy’s favourite places to eat in LA's dynamic dining scene.

Read below to see Miguel and Jeremy’s favourite places to eat in LA's dynamic dining scene.

Osteria La Buca

"The Short Rib ravioli is insane. Not sure if it's still on the menu, or maybe a special, but I've had an Arrabbiata there before that was fire. It's the best pasta in the game, perfectly cooked noodles, which they make by hand onsite. They also have an excellent bar there and you can order Mescal which is rare at an Italian spot. Great vibes in there all around any night of the week." - Miguel

The Rose Venice

"This is our favorite weekend spot hands down. The food is so good. If we could eat like THAT every day, it would be our every day spot, but we save it for weekends. I personally LOVE the French toast but everything is bomb. Ask for Jason, he's the Chef. Always takes good care of us." - Miguel

Bavel

"We love the lamb chops and the whole Branzino fish here. It’s so insane. They use some sort of a sweet peppery marinade on the fish that’s next level. It's in downtown LA Arts District which has a really good energy to it." - Miguel

Tacos LAX

"It’s right by the airport, so you can hit it as soon as you land. It’s a very low key local legend spot. All the tacos are excellent. Loads of cheese. Can’t go wrong in my opinion." - Miguel

Dino’s Chicken & Burgers

"Dino’s tastes like OG Los Angeles to me. I grew up in downtown and used to go there at least once a week. Definitely go to the one on Pico and get their famous charbroiled chicken. Make sure to order “extra juice” and soak everything on your plate in the sauce." - Jeremy

Burgers Never Say Die

"I say with great confidence that this is my favorite burger of all time. They come as doubles and they tell you to always order two. I always order four. I always get extra cheese on all my burgers, and recommend getting a side of cheese sauce for your fries. You can dip your burger in the sauce too if you’re crazy like I am." - Jeremy

Craig’s

"Craig’s is my weekly go to dinner spot. It’s got a great vibe, always consistent, and has great classic food with an amazing team. One of my favorite dishes here however is their crab omelette on their brunch menu. I highly recommend ordering this alongside a nice glass of champagne." - Jeremy

Crazy Fish

"This is one of my favorite hole-in-the-wall sushi spots. If you’re looking for traditional and authentic sushi, this isn’t the place for you. However, if you’re looking for comfort food sushi, this will become your favorite place. They have the best spicy tuna roll I’ve ever had because it’s made with fresh tuna, smelt eggs, house-made Mayo and chilli oil. It’s not made with leftover scraps like a lot of other places. Ask for Joyce and order a side of spicy salad dressing to dip your sushi in." - Jeremy

Quarters Korean BBQ

"Quarters is great because it’s got great food, a perfect location in the heart of K-town, a ton of seating and a great vibe. Believe it or not they also have a cheese sauce that acts as a fondue for your meat. As you can tell, there’s a pattern here with my love for cheese and dipping everything in sight, but I sincerely recommend doing that here too. They also have the best kimchi." - Jeremy

Spago

"A classic fine dining staple in Los Angeles. I love places that have been around for decades and Spago really maintains that higher end dining status yet feels modernized and timeless. Always get the smoked salmon pizza, it’s one of my favorite things ever." - Jeremy

Ta-eem Grill

"Ta-eem has the best chicken shawarma you’ll ever have. I always order a plate and make sure to get a ton of the side salads. The grilled eggplant salad is personally my favorite but they’re all amazing." - Jeremy

Akasaka Sushi Restaurant

"This one is a bit of a drive to Hacienda Heights but well worth it. It’s a tiny hole in the wall spot located on a parking lot and they have the best chirashi bowl I’ve ever had. It’s a huge portion so you might need to share it. Make sure to get a side of ponzu sauce." - Jeremy
