LA Eats List: 6 must-try restaurants this month
Humble, Tender, and Lazy might be in the name of a few of our new Los Angeles Uber Eats restaurant partners, but we’ve landed an even more accurate adjective to describe all six: Scrumptious. Consider this your to-eat list for June!
Go ahead, make it a Lazy day and outsource the cooking to Lazy Dog! This locally-sourced, family-run restaurant aims to be “your home away from home,” and now you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. Many of the dishes nod to nights spent around a campfire, such as Pork Belly N’ Beans, Bacon Ranch Bacon Burger, and Campfire Pot Roast. So everyone in the family has something to snack on, you can also order chicken, burger, or rice for your not-so-lazy pup. 🐶
She’s a beaut! The small yet smart menu at this Venice fast food shop has something for everyone. Their signature Beauty Burgers are hand-shaped and grilled on a flat-top with onions, then get garnished with American cheese, pickles, and house sauce. Don’t sweat it, vegetarians: You can Beyond Burger that, or score The $7 Grain Bowl (yes, that’s really the name!) that comes with brown rice, a soft-cooked egg, plus a variety of seeds and seasonal veggies. Every entree needs a side of French Fries. Trust us.
A down-to-earth burger joint with a pinch of Japanese fusion is what you’ll find from this shy spud. Mission: accomplished with the Karē Baga (Angus beef burger, slow-cooked Japanese curry, tomato, yuzu-jalapeño slaw, sunny egg), the Humble Dog (beef frank, caramelized onion, tomato, scallion, soy-pickled jalapeño, nori), and Yakniku Sando (a play on Philly cheese steak on a garlic-butter roll with sliced rib-eye, Yakiniku marinade, provolone, grilled onion, scallion, shichimi togarashi). End on a sweet note with a Choco Abocado Shake.
Japanese and Hawaiian flavors meet—with fresh, fantastic results at health-minded AhiPoki. Build your own poke bowl over white rice, brown rice, salad, or kelp, then choose from raw and/or cooked protein options including everything from Spam to Spicy Tuna to Kimchi Shrimp. From there, you select your sauce and up to 15(!) veggie, fruit, and seed toppings. Add a Spam, Chicken, or Unagi Musubi—a popular Hawaiian snack that’s reminiscent of a seaweed-wrapped rice sushi roll—and dinner is done.
Each location of this California-, New York-, and Massachusetts-based restaurant group has its own chef that helms the kitchen and creates daily specials using in-season produce from local markets. The mainstays are marvelous, too, like the hearty Fried Chicken Sandwich with cabbage slaw and chili aioli and the refreshing Tuna Nicoise Salad with grilled rare Albacore tuna, greens, potato, capers, green beans, eggs, olives, and more.
Since 1948, Coco’s has been fueling diners along the Pacific Coast Highway. Now, their cozy American cuisine is available at with 45 locations along the west coast—make that 46 when you order in from Uber Eats. They have options to perk you up from morning (Brioche Eggs Benedict) to noon (Tuna Salad Croissant) to late-night (Fresh-Baked Cookies). Hosting a party? Outsource the dessert and pick a few pies from Coco’s classic list (apple, cherry, banana cream, lemon meringue, pecan, and more).
