My Top LA Foodie Spots

My Top LA Foodie Spots

I’ve just landed back in Los Angeles after a lovely holiday break seeing my family and friends, along with a productive work stint in Sydney. 

If there’s one thing I love more than the warm sunshine in Los Angeles, it’s the food scene here. Everyone who knows me knows how much I enjoy a soul nourishing meal at a downtown cafe, or visiting a favourite restaurant on the weekends with Dean or friends. 

Although I love to prepare my own meals at home (check out the JSHealth App for recipes you can whip up in your own kitchen!), it’s also a part of my balanced lifestyle to dine out and experience everything a city has to offer.

I’m sharing my LA foodie favourites, from quick bites to sit-down meals, hoping they inspire you to try something new and delicious for your next meal out.

Love,

Juice and Smoothie Bars

When I’m out and about, nothing beats a refreshing smoothie. My go-to spots include Earth Bar and Erewhon. The Almond Butter Smoothie from Erewhon is a must-try!

Cafes

LA is home to some fantastic cafes, but these three are my absolute favourites…

  • Sweetgreen – I love that you can make your own salad here. It’s my daily lunch spot!
  • Urth Caffé – Their Greek salad is so delicious.
  • Carla Cafe – Their chopped chicken/tuna salad is YUM. Trust me, this’ll be your next go-to!

Restaurants

For dining out, I love variety – from trendy eateries to cosy neighbourhood gems. My top picks are…

Groceries

When it comes to my weekly grocery shopping, here’s where I usually go…

  • Erewhon – It’s fancy, but a health dream come true.
  • Trader Joe’s – Perfect for your everyday needs.
  • Sprouts – My go-to for everything fresh, natural and organic. 
  • Whole Foods – Of course, who doesn’t love Whole Foods?

Cocktail Bars

It’s also a part of my balanced lifestyle to enjoy a glass of wine or a well-crafted cocktail, in moderation! Here are some of my favourite spots…

And if you’re looking for a cute spot with delicious cocktails and beautiful piano playing, check out The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Whether you’re a local or just visiting, I hope my list helps you find your next favourite place to eat or drink in Los Angeles. Enjoy!
