Where Jonathan Gold Thinks You Should Eat This Weekend in Los Angeles: East Borough

Written by

Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the Los Angeles Times. This week he reviews the new East Borough outpost in Culver City. Jonathan lauds the restaurant for its ability to seamlessly fuse two of the most popular Vietnamese staples, pho and banh mi, into one tasty dish– the pho baguette.

Jonathan recommends the pho baguette, wok charred oxtail, manilla clams with turmeric buttered toast, crispy roasted trout and the shakey bo steak.
