    Grand Central Market

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Across the street from the Bradbury Building in downtown LA is the city's largest and most active food market, Grand Central Market, with shops selling produce, meat and seafood. But the draw for a tourist are the many little places to eat, I saw Chinese, Thai, El Salvadorian and Mexican before settling on a couple of empanadas from an Argentinian place.

    Located at 317 S. Broadway

    When you're visiting Grand Central Market (which you'll want to do after viewing my travelogue!), be sure to go to Tacos, Tumbras e Tomas. Get the tacos carnitas, and thank me later. It's pig heaven!

    Usually there's a big crowd standing there and no discernable lines. Just shove your way up (nicely) and shout your order to the friendly guys. They speak english, despite the fact that nobody else around you will.

    (and p.s., you'll spend less than $5 to get full)

    Yummy!

    The 100-year-old Grand Central Market is a cornucopia of smells, sounds & incredible food. It's a great place to visit just for the atmosphere--a bustling street market (covered), with sawdust on the floor, pigs heads for sale, chiles of all imaginable kinds, a tortilla factory--it's sensory overload!

    Definitely plan to eat there. Food stalls offer mostly Mexican & Chinese but there's also Philly Cheesesteak, Pizza, Juice bar, and more. Get some carnitas tacos and leave happy!

    Grand Central is located between Hill and Broadway at 3rd Street. Check out my travelogue for photos!

    Food, glorious food!
