We love Eastside Market because even after more than 90 years, this Italian deli on the outskirts of Downtown still feels like a secret. Their sandwiches are the messy, red sauce-covered variety that are hard to find anywhere else in LA. The #7 (roast beef, pastrami, and cheese) is probably our favorite, but if you’re feeling ambitious, the D.A. Special (sausage, meatball, roast beef, and pastrami) is your one-way ticket to an all-day nap.
