Today Starts Here

Perfect For:BreakfastBrunch

Today Starts Here is a new spot in Chinatown, and there may not be a more aptly-named restaurant in town. Because every day should start here. My favorite thing at this Taiwanese breakfast operation (from the people behind Joy) is the dan bing, an excellent layered crepe that is rolled with scrambled eggs, corn, and scallions. I also love the mushroom-heavy daikon rice cakes, and the savory soy milk, a porridge made from their house-made soy milk, with pork floss, preserved vegetables, and youtiao (deep-fried dough). They’ve also got a great selection of teas - we recommend the Dong Ding, a roasty, toasty oolong from Nantou County in Taiwan.

Angeleno Wine Co.

Angeleno Wine Co. is a great winery in Chinatown, and one of the only places in LA where they make wine on-site.
