We like that this fried chicken stall in Grand Central Market has a row of barstools at the counter, so you can sit and eat your sandwich without having to fight a group of people in suits for a table elsewhere in the market. But easy seating isn’t the only reason to eat here - the fried chicken is also very solid. You can get three or five pieces, but we like the sandwich, which comes with pickles, smoked paprika aioli, and lettuce.

Eggslut in Grand Central Market isn’t necessarily worth the usually-long lines, but they do make a good breakfast sandwich.
Big, bustling, and once a gamechanger for DTLA. Unfortunately, unlike most of LA’s residents, Bottega Louie is not aging well.
