One of the joys of visiting downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) is stopping by the Grand Central Market, that collection of 40 restaurant stalls, from ultra-hip like Eggslut and purveyors of exotic sausages and ramen, to the more traditional tacos and Chop Suey.
On the wild side, the exotic peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at a restaurant called PB&J really caught my eye, especially Chocolate Hazel!
For someone who loves candid street photography, it’s a goldmine.
The Market is open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. If you visit Disney Hall or MOCA, it’s just a few blocks downhill to visit. If you don’t want to walk up the hill, you can always hop the Angel’s Flight for a quick $1 ride up.
Finally, I would remiss if I didn’t make a pitch, if you haven’t seen it already, to catch my #Photowalk video of DTLA, which takes you from Disney Hall to Grand Central, Philippe’s the Original, Bradbury Building, the Broad and more. Let me know what you think!
There’s something for everyone at the market, if you can find a place to sit. On Sundays it can get really, really crowded. Get there early!
