One meal in LA - foodie and non-foodie mix

3 posts in this topic

My parents will be picking me up at LAX at about noon on a Friday, and we will be spending some hours in LA before heading out to Palm Desert. They are on-a-budget retirees who won't let me buy a meal for them. Any thoughts on an interesting late lunch/early dinner place that is easy on the wallet? I would like to try something that is really well done or something that I can't get in New England if possible. My mom can't handle spicy, but will be ok if there are some mild foo options for her.

We haven't pinned down exactly where in LA we will be going. My mom suggested a bus your of Venice Beach, and I would be interested in visiting a big Farmers Market if available.

Where did you end up going? I haven't been in LA in 20 years so my old favorites are either probably long gone or decrepit. although I should have thought of the Apple Pan in West L.A. which is a unique experience and has excellent burgers, shakes and pies. I'm told it's still there and still good. Sorry I forgot!
