DOWNTOWN L.A. | Grand Central Market
Most San Diegans find Los Angeles to be a place to avoid usually but one incredibly redeeming quality is their food scene and Grand Central Market adds color to the options. It has excelled in providing a variety of cuisines for the curious and hungry.
I was journeying thru Los Angeles on the way back to San Diego when I realized I had not eaten breakfast and the clock struck nearly 2PM. I decided to swing thru the Grand Central Market, one of the many places I would come to as a child, located in downtown L.A. It was a few minutes off the freeway with plenty of nearby, easily accessible parking.
As I walked up to the massive market entrance, I was in awe of the beautiful pink petals of the jacaranda trees which were in FULL BLOOM. This was such a lovely view considering I was smack dab in the middle of this megalopolis of high rises and sky scrapers.
Even at 2PM on a weekday, the 100 year old Grand Central Market was buzzing with people popping in to grab a bite. Many of the hungry stood in lines at such places as Eggslut, Sarita’s Pupusería and Wexler’s Deli but there was one place I was gunning for and it was Sari Sari Store, the Filipino food booth.
