Teddy’s Red Tacos:
Armin from Mini Kabob:


Teddy’s Red Tacos – The first place we ate on this best of Los Angeles food tour is Teddy’s Red Tacos. First of all, Teddy is such a friendly down to earth guy who is passionate about birria, one of my favorite Mexican foods. Serving out of a food truck, we ordered the mixed plate of birria tacos, his made with beef. It was extraordinary, and great to hang out and meet Teddy as well.
Mixed plate – $10

Beijing Pie House – Next we drove East to the Beijing Pie House, another one of Liz’s best favorite restaurants in LA. We ordered a mix of dishes including a variety of dumplings and the highlight was their tripe salad laced in Sichuan pepper oil. If you’re looking for some Northern Chinese dishes, Beijing Pie House is well worth the drive from Central LA.
Total price – $55.70

Mini Kabob – There was one more huge meal we had to eat on this best restaurants in LA food tour. We drove to Glendale where there’s a large population of Armenians, and we met up with Armin, son of the owner of Mini Kabob. Immediately I loved the place, family run, just a small little shop with a few tables, and an ultimately friendly place. They welcomed us in and Armin took care of us from the start, fixing us a mixed meat platter with a little bit of everything. The Armenian kabobs were spectacular, as were all the different salads.
Huge platter – thanks Armin!

Heroic Deli – Finally, to end this restaurants tour of LA, we drove over to meet my friend Jeffrey who is starting a deli in LA called Heroic Deli ( Barbara prepared us their signature OMG classic Italian sub, which was unbelievably good and well balanced. When they open in Santa Monica, be sure to stop by for a fantastic sandwich.

Thank you to Liz and Will for taking me around to some of their favorite restaurants in LA, I had an amazing time!

    That is Iranian food but served by Armenians, one of the ethnic groups in Iran. For example salad shirazi is a popular Iranian salad and named after a city in Iran: Shiraz

  7. Dragon

    Does anybody know what the starchy web at 7:46 is made from? I'm guessing the dumplings are tossed in a slurry of either cornstarch or rice flour then everything is poured into the pan and when it steams it bubbles up.
