Grilled Fraiche

With two locations in South LA and another in Long Beach, Cali-Caribbean spot Grilled Fraiche is a casual takeout operation with a creative fusion menu that goes big on flavor. The signature dish here is the stir-fried garlic noodles, drizzled in creamy honey-chipotle sauce with a side of fried plantains and seared salmon or shrimp. The rest of the menu is just as wild: there’s coconut milk stewed beans with jerk seasoning, crispy wonton cabbage rolls, vegan crab cakes made from garbanzo beans, and a stunningly ooey-gooey bread pudding. There are a few seats available to eat outside, but most people pick up their food from the order window and head out.
