OK, in all honesty, we have no idea if this place has actual ghosts inside. That said, there’s little denying that this is one of the most objectively terrifying places to eat in LA. A secret restaurant inside a Victorian doll emporium where real children make appointments at fake day spas so “Samantha” can get a body scrub before coming home sounds like the pitch for Netflix’s newest horror series. And yet, it’s a real place and also one of LA’s only year-round haunted houses. If you’re looking for some comfort amongst all the frights, we recommend burying your face into some chicken tenders or their famed “Macaroni With A Lot Of Cheese.”
