The name sounds like a trendy new Paleo restaurant, but Caveman Kitchen doesn’t care about your fad diet. This casual Peruvian/American/whatever-it-wants-to-be spot near USC is serving huge, meat-heavy dishes that in no way accommodate any dietary restrictions, but definitely taste good. The space is usually filled with students eating rotisserie chicken (which is always roasting in the back, so the place smells great), burgers, and lomo saltado. Come here once for a hungover breakfast or a quick dinner and you’ll probably become a regular.
