1. Cofax Coffee Shop 440 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036 (Echo Park)

Although Cofax began as a coffee shop, it quickly became a big name in the donut game when it hired a next-level pastry chef, who's churning out creative flavors like honey sea salt, lemon pistachio, and spiced crumb.

2. The Flyin' Jalapeño 83 Windward Ave, Venice, CA 90291 (Venice)

The Flyin' Jalapeño, a block away from the beach, is a choose-your-own-adventure Mexican joint à la C(fill up a burrito, taco, bowl, nachos, or salad with your choice of toppings) that keeps their prices low, introduces some amped-up flavors, and ditches the long line of the popular chains.

3. MexiKosher 8832 W Pico, Los Angeles, CA 90048 (Mid Wilshire)

Just now open on Pico (duh), MexiKosher's exactly what it sounds like: a fantastic pun, and also a traditional Mexican restaurant employing all-Kosher preparations overseen by a chef who's done time at Maestro's and Bastide, and is now feeding it to you in a small, casual room with one side constructed of (and apparently this is legal) stones from Jerusalem’s holy Western Wall, aka the row of Tercels blocking you from getting to Vermont.
