What is the name of the falafel stand in Los Angeles?
Chefs Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson debuted in Los Angeles with their falafel stand (then called Madcapra) at Grand Central Market back in 2015. A lot has happened since then, including the opening of critically-lauded restaurant Kismet in Los Feliz, and a rebrand for the GCM stand to Kismet Falafel. And while the name has changed, the same quality ingredients and casual-cool approach still applies to this stall on the south side of the market. The rosewater lemonade is still a hit, the salads are a delicious and healthy takeaway option, and the spiced fries are some of the best in Downtown, but don’t sleep on the namesake Kismet falafel sandwich with cauliflower and a fennel-spiked labneh, plus bright mint and just-right spicy green hot sauce. It’s a simple sub-$12 dish that both satisfies and stands out, even in the already crowded Grand Central Market. —Farley Elliott
What is sticky rice?
Sticky Rice might be the most well-rounded food stall in the entire market , with a tight menu of Thai street food classics that excels from top to bottom. While the khao soi would normally be my pick for the best dish on the menu, the gai yang (grilled chicken) probably has wider appeal and won’t fill you up, leaving room to try more dishes around Grand Central. The tender grilled thigh picks up heavy grill marks and is served with a sweet-tangy sauce and the stall’s namesake rice. A side of papaya salad keeps every bite fresh like ginger at a sushi restaurant, providing a fish sauce punch whenever the chicken starts tasting monotonous. But with the nice grilling and gentle Thai seasoning, that chicken delivers until the end. —Matthew Kang

Who owns Lucky Bird?
Don’t be fooled by Lucky Bird’s simple exterior. Here in chef/owner Chris Dane ’s workshop, he’s developed the kind of chicken that he likes to eat. There’s no trendy hot chicken or anything overly complex. Lucky Bird prepares really solid fried chicken that’s juicy with a batter that always remains in place while taking a bite. Additionally, Dade maintains a chicken lab in the rear kitchen where staff butcher chickens, transform the flavorful crispy bits at the bottom of the fryer into incredible gravy, make a proprietary fermented hot sauce, and repurpose meat scraps for popcorn chicken. —Mona Holmes
What is the Chinese food at OG Grand Central Market?
Expect things like chow mein, kung pao chicken, and off-menu egg rolls. We like to elbow our way into a seat at the bar, order a huge bowl of wonton soup for $6.50, and load it with chili sauce.
Is Eggslut in Vegas?
With locations all over LA and even Vegas, Eggslut is now one of the most recognizable names in LA food, and this is the original. Yes, the lines will always be long and yes, people will be taking selfies with that yolk-covered burger. We can’t tell you that these breakfast sandwiches are worth the long wait, but if you walk past and there’s somehow no line, seize the opportunity and order the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.
Is Eggslut line long?
For reasons we don’t fully fathom, the Eggslut line is still ridiculously long. But if you insist on trying it and need something to get you through the wait, Clark Street Bread is strategically placed next door, and has a bunch of pastries, plus a handful of toasts and sandwiches. Get a kouign-amann to eat while you stand, or just skip Eggslut altogether and have a slice of the very good avocado toast. The bread here is fantastic, so even if you’re eating somewhere else, you should probably grab a loaf to take home.
Where is the Donut Man located?
Now, they have a stall at GCM, located at the front left corner (when you enter from S. Broadway), where you’ll find a giant case of freshly made donuts. It’s sort of like revisiting Madonna’s discography – confusing if you don’t know where to start – but whatever you decide to order, make sure to throw in a few strawberry-stuffed ones. They’re the donuts that made the man famous, topped with huge, bright-red fruits and drizzled in a sticky glaze. Don’t blame us if they ruin every other donut in existence.
Can you order carne asada with birria?
Sure, you could order the birria (goat) or the carne asada, but if you don’t opt for the carnitas you’ve made a mistake. You’ll only need a single order – just ask for more tortillas to go with your one taco and you’ll have enough protein for at least three.
Does McConnell’s tub have sundaes?
You’ve probably seen McConnell’s tubs in a grocery store, which means you definitely put them in your shopping cart, therefore you know why the line here is always so long. You could go for a scoop (Boysenberry Rosé Milk Jam, anyone?), but why settle at just that – there’s sundaes, floats, and build-your-own ice cream sandwiches available here. It’s certainly the best way to finish up before you roll yourself out the door and onto the 10.
