This is a local authentic Vietnamese pho place that we go on a regular basis. Their PHO is one of the best! Try their egg roll dish that comes with lettuce. Broth is solid...food is solid. It will not disappoint. This has been here for 30 years! Cash only. ATM machine is inside. Parking and bathroom available. This is NOT a fancy pho joint. But a damn good one!

Neighborhoods
This neighborhood is on the eastern edge of Downtown Los Angeles, California. The city community planning boundaries are Alameda Street on the west which blends into Little Tokyo, First Street on the north, the Los Angeles River to the east, and Violet Street on the south. Largely composed of industrial buildings dating from the early 20th century, the area has recently been revitalized, and its street scene slowly developed in the early the 21st century. New art galleries have increased recognition of the area amidst the entire downtown where other art museums are found.

Chinatown is a neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles, California that became a commercial center for Chinese and other Asian businesses in Central Los Angeles in 1938. The area includes restaurants, shops and art galleries but also has a residential neighborhood with a low-income, aging population of about 20,000 residents. The original Chinatown developed in the late 19th century, but it was demolished to make room for Union Station, the city's major ground-transportation center. A separate commercial center, known as "New Chinatown," opened for business in 1938. Street and natural limits of the Chinatown neighborhood are: north, Beaudry Avenue, Stadium Way, North Broadway; east, the Los Angeles River; and southwest, Cesar Chavez Avenue. Chinatown beyond the concentrated business center is flanked by the Elysian Park to the north, Lincoln Heights to the east, Downtown to the south and southwest and Echo Park to the west and northwest.

Little Tokyo Historic District, is an ethnically Japanese American district in downtown Los Angeles and the heart of the largest Japanese-American population in North America. It is the largest and most populous of only three official Japantowns in the United States, all of which are in California (the other two are Japantown, San Francisco and Japantown, San Jose). Founded around the beginning of the 20th century, the area, sometimes called Lil' Tokyo, J-Town, is the cultural center for Japanese Americans in Southern California. It was declared a National Historic Landmark District in 1995. There's plenty of ramen, sushi, and udon joints here as well as a Japanese market. Plenty of small gift shots with a touch of the Japanese culture. There's a Hellokity-Sanrio store, match green tea ice cream, boba, and Japanese pop culture and comic stores! Anime is popular here as well!

Mariachi Plaza is located in the Boyle Heights district of the city of Los Angeles, east of downtown. Since the 1930s, mariachi musicians have gathered in hopes of being hired by visitors who are looking for a full band, trio or solo singer. The plaza resembles Mexico's famed Plaza Garibaldi in both form and function and draws people from all over Los Angeles. This plaza is also an historic gateway to the neighborhood. Day or night, one can find many musicians waiting around the plaza and hotel - now an affordable living complex - across the street to be hired for work. Local leaders hope to promote the plaza and for it to remain a sanctuary for musicians. There is a small kiosk located in the plaza, similar to those found in Mexico, donated in 1998 by the Mexican State of Jalisco, the birthplace of mariachi music. A bandstand was added in 2009. The plaza is bounded by E. 1st Street to the south, N. Boyle Avenue to the west, and a small residential street named Pleasant Avenue to its north. The Kiosk is ornamental and has been criticised for its poor acoustics.

The Walt Disney Concert Hall at 111 South Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, California, is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center and was designed by Frank Gehry. It opened on October 24, 2003. Bounded by Hope Street, Grand Avenue, and 1st and 2nd Streets, it seats 2,265 people and serves, among other purposes, as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. The hall is a compromise between an arena seating configuration, like the Berliner Philharmonie by Hans Scharoun,[1] and a classical shoebox design like the Vienna Musikverein or the Boston Symphony Hall.[2] Lillian Disney made an initial gift of $50 million in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney's devotion to the arts and to the city. The Frank Gehry–designed building opened on October 24, 2003. Both Gehry's architecture and the acoustics of the concert hall, designed by Minoru Nagata,[3] the final completion supervised by Nagata's assistant and protege Yasuhisa Toyota,[4] have been praised, in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Vervoersmogelijkheden
Metro station, Uber, Lyft and Electric Scooters
Due to challenges with parking, traffic, and one-way streets, I highly recommend using the Metro station and type of ride shares. Electric scooters are also an affordable way to transit between streets and cities.
Vervoersmogelijkheden
Parking is very challenging.
If you can avoid driving, then leave your car parked and do ride-share.
Vervoersmogelijkheden
Add 15-20 minutes to your commute due to LA Traffic
Google maps may say it's only 2-3 miles (+ or -), but consider adding 15-30 minutes due to traffic and congestion.
