    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      happyjolly77able Hopefully it’s helpful! Happy eating!

      Yes LA IS gorgeous

  28. Rapheal Francis

    81. BUS. LINE. NORTH. 2006

  29. jwang076

    Why no Chinese food, this is bull shit. Greater LA area probably has the largest Chinese population outside of the continent of Asia, and probably some of the best Chinese food outside of China.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      jwang076 Yeah, I would have loved to include some amazing Chinese places, but most are outside the main toruisty/central areas where most people watching these vids will stay when visiting. So I couldn’t include everything. Perhaps I can do a part-two for LA:) What are some of your favorite places?

    2. Michele Marie

      Yang Chow in Chinatown! Also, visit Little Tokyo for sushi.

    3. hitokiriheero

      you were literally just in west la. maybe go to other places in la

    4. Tim L

      All you have to do is visit Valley Blvd in San Gabriel and there are literally HUNDREDS of authentic Chinese restaurants representing all regional flavors of China. Beijing Tasty House and Spicy City are two of my favorites.

    5. Bin Zeng

      Relax Jackie Chan. This is City of LA specific it seems so no need to get all outraged over nothing, there are not good Chinese places in West LA so its pretty accurate.

  30. jmazzitelli

    Dude, Guerrilla Tacos, not Geurrilla !!

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      jmazzitelli Whoops! Sadly too late to fix now :/

    2. Grecia Martinez

      literally was going to say that lol

    3. Matt's Travel Tips

      Grecia Martinez Yeah…stupid typo that sadly can’t be fixed now :/

  31. sebastian

    If you can make it to all these places without getting your car stolen or a parking fine, I commend you

    1. S Almanza

      Don’t leave your keys in the car and read the signs 🙂

    2. Jose Ron

      You definitely don’t live in LA to say such an arrogant comment.

  32. 1BIG tuna

    Matt!!! Awesome channel. I’m a first time viewer and loved your content. Los Angeles is my birth place and I now live in The suburbs of Philadelphia. But I must back up about three years because I used to live in Atlanta and there’s lots of food to explore there as well. But let’s move forward to Los Angeles. When I used to live in LA there was a place in Alhambra called “The Hat”. I remember their massive pastrami sandwiches. Then there was El Tepayac serving these awesome burritos. One was massive called the Manuel Special. And lastly Tommy’s ! It was my top bucket list stops. I hadn’t had that in 10 years. Chili burgers by Tommy’s. Fantastic. And the next one on my bucket list was In-n-Out

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      1BIG tuna Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment and suggestions! Cheers!

  33. Elsa Bonjour

    U think that’s bad traffic?! You haven’t seen anything yet! Go to the Philippines! 🙂

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Elsa Bonjour Haha. I’ve been. It’s nuts there. But I do love the Philippines.

  47. Kim Gyu

  48. Alexis Sanchez

    Never stop uploading! Your videos are incredible, entertaining, and so informative. You have a really amazing way of doing these travel guides and I feel like your videos summarize what I have to otherwise watch 3-4 other videos to get!

    1. Alexis Sanchez

      P.S. Would love to see a guide for Paris!

    2. Matt's Travel Tips

      Alexis Sanchez Thanks so much for the wonderful compliment. So glad you like the vids. They take a while to film, so I can’t post as often as I’d like…but I promise more are coming soon:) Cheers – M

  51. MoGainz787

    Dat traffic. LA needs to die.

  52. Nick Andrikidis

    why do you only have 16k subs? i enjoyed this so much more than most big channels. I appreciate you making it about the food and not yourself lol. Can’t stand the popular clickbait, attention whore hosted food channels putting out shite for views. You have a nice way of talking to the audience in an unpatronizing way while providing good info which you clearly put a lot of time into for such a put together, quality video. Good vibes

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Nick Andrikidis Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment! Working on getting more subs now haha. More vids coming soon. All the best – M

  53. Crenshawgrinder

    List is okay but not the best stuff at all.

  54. Crenshawgrinder

    This is an outsider version of L.A food not realizing the best food are those places hidden that have been in business for generations.

    1. Makaila Myers

      Crenshawgrinder can you inform the public then?

    2. Crenshawgrinder

      Makaila Myers I will do better than that. Please refer to refuse media hood eats. I would start at the best tamales in L.A. on 111th and San Pedro they have been at that spot for 60 years.

    3. Makaila Myers

      Crenshawgrinder what do you mean by hood eats ?

    4. Crenshawgrinder

      One of many youtubers who visits eateries in L.A. just search those terms on youtube and the channel will come right up.

    5. Debra Lawrence

      You should keep them hidden, then. In NY, Clinton St. Baking Co. is NOW known for having the best pancakes in America. And guess what? You now get to wait up to THREE hours for “Neil’s Famous Pancakes”. I just know there’s a hidden NY eatery that makes pancakes just as good. I just can’t find it! They’re keeping it a secret!

    6. bcrivas2

      I’m looking for the best food in LA tomorrow. Throw me a bone

    7. Crenshawgrinder

      bcrivas2 Seafood – San Pedro Seafood Market, Chinese- New Moon – Mexican – Guelaguetza, El Cholo, both on Western and Olympic – Burgers- Chabalitas, Astro Tams, Vegetarian- Simply Wholesome on Overhill

  55. BBB

    Forehead Lines!

  56. BBB

    But for real… this channel is underrated.

  57. Sheila An

    Fathers Office hands down the best burger in LA

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Sheila An Fathers Office is really fantastic. I can’t deny it:) Just a matter of personal preference;) Could only include so many places😬

  58. Cedric Deweerdt

    Wow dude! Amazing videos !!! Keep it up!

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Cedric Deweerdt Thanks so much!

  59. Jose Esparza

    Leo’s Tacos!


    Fucking hate LA, everything overpriced, traffic is worst in the world, no amount of great food will I ever go back to that shithole filled with homeless in every corner

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      MAXIMUS But please…tell me how you really feel. No need to be vague. Let it all out. I’m here to listen.

  61. James Paul

  63. Czr S

    That’s my godmother’s place the pupusas.

    2. Czr S

      Matt’s Travel Tips I live in Arizona and I can’t find a pupusaria as good.

    3. Matt's Travel Tips

      Czr S I bet. They’re some of the best pupusas I’ve had (including El Salvador and Honduras)

  64. Noseefood

    fuck! can you imagine the parking at these places?

  65. MrMiguellitoh

    How did you miss Persian food? I would skip Groves Farmers makers (over priced and not a big deal) and have Persian food. 🙂

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      MrMiguellitoh Give me some recommendations please! My best friend’s family is from Iran, so most of the Persian food I eat is home-cooked:) But I’m always game to try new places!

    2. MrMiguellitoh

      Matt’s Travel Tips Farsi Cafe in Westwood, Raffi’s Place in Glendale. Shamahiri in Westwood.

    I’ve lived here for 25 years and have never been to any of them. I guess we all have different tastes.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Tim L Gotta try ‘em out! Also, let me know your favorite spots:)

    2. Tim L

      Genwa KBBQ (best meat quality and most banchans), Magal (similar to Kang Ho Dong), Beijing Tasty House (favorite Chinese restaurant), Spicy City (2nd favorite Chinese restaurant), and ChongQuing Special Noodles (favorite noodle house). I guess you can tell I favor Asian foods.

    3. Matt's Travel Tips

      Tim L Love it! Thanks! I love Asian food too. Look forward to checking these out! Cheers – M

  69. Neil Ash

    I moved from LA over 30 yrs back and will not go back food r not !!

  73. Kimberly Kimble

    Great review. Very entertaining. I would love for you to review some places in the South Bay area. 🙂

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Kimberly Kimble So glad you liked it:) Sadly, I don’t know the South Bay all that well. Know San Francisco really well, but not much outside the city.

    2. Kimberly Kimble

      Matt’s Travel Tips
      Hi Matt. Thanks for responding.

      The South Bay area of Los Angeles is actually minutes away from mid-town Los Angeles so the cities of Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach Torrance, Palos Verdes, El Segundo, etc. I am actually in that area quite frequently and would love to know some places to go. These areas are a bit more “suburb-ey” but still get lots of tourists. I imagine that will grow when the Rams Stadium is complete.

    3. Matt's Travel Tips

      Kimberly Kimble Oh haha. Totally misunderstood. Well that would be much easier…we shall see:) A few other videos coming first.

    4. Kimberly Kimble

      Matt’s Travel Tips

  75. Louis Turner

    The only things that need hit la are nuclear bombs. Fuck the food, all the people, the animals are cool…

  76. Bradley Steven

    This guy looks like a badly aged 90s sitcom star who never got the memo that the hair style is no longer desirable. He tries waaaaay to hard to be cool, and looks totally inauthentic and lame.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Bradley Steven Welp…I’d like to congratulate you on the most specific insult I’ve ever gotten on here:) Congrats my man. As a reward, you will receive a gift certificate to my hair stylist😜

    2. Bradley Steven

      Matt’s Travel Tips make the Supercuts gift certificate made out to Bradley Stevens 🙂

    3. Matt's Travel Tips

      Bradley Steven You got it 😉

    4. beyonce fuii

      Bradley Steven
      Lol, you probably look as bad as your attitude. If sitting behind a screen and insulting this guy makes you feel better then I pity you 🙂

    I was particularly impressed with the lady in the breather trying to vidbomb forcing you to make a GENIUS CUT to a CLOSE UP.

  83. Truth Reigns Forever

    No thanks, will not support California’s economy in any way, shape, or form. Would you do a clip of New York?

    Another dweeb letting us know what he thinks is best. Goes to grand central market doesn’t talk about the tacos there. Best tacos for your buck. You get full with one taco, stuff if you eat two. Tired of fakes dudes that are stupid enough to pay 20$ for a burger smothered in sauce like a dorta mojada…

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Element Creator Element Creator Honestly…ate the tacos at the Grand Central Market. They’re good, but not my favorite in he city, and I could only feature so many places. And as I say at the end of the vid…these are just a smattering of the amazing options in LA. But I will freely admit that I am a dweeb:)

    2. Element Creator

      Matt’s Travel Tips The Grand Central tacos is basically a butcher shop serving tacos. Better quality then any lonchera truck, but you will never understand that you can hook up a taco anyway yourself. So some spots say here comes this pinche gringo let’s hook up the taco for him so he will come back… And molé is best serve with whole thigh and leg bone in. But restaurant serve it with chicken breast because they don’t want to get sued by the pinche gringo that can choke himself…

  86. Mark Reid

    If you live in LA, as I do, this list is absorb. Bestia and Langer Deli are great but best Italian in nation? Whoa!

  87. James Frame

    Yo dick, shut the fuck up. You are literally blowing all of the best spots!!

  88. allenm7

    Guelagetza is overrated. Check out el cholo couple blocks down.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      allenm7 Will do! Though I still love Guelaguetza:)

  89. Ker

    Thank you for making this video. I wished I saw this before I went to L.A. oh well….more reasons to go back!! 😁😁😁

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Ker Come on back! 🙂

  90. The Thirsty Pig

    With the one of the largest Chinese, Filipino, and Vietnamese populations in US, it is a shame you didn’t consider these cuisines. I wouldn’t trust anything from Yelp.

  91. Ski Sand

    My job REQUIRES me to visit LA every quarter 🙂 and thanks to you, I know where to eat for the next 5 years!! Thank you for the wonderful reviews and beautiful cinematography. Please ask Adam Katzner what camera he used. I want to BUY that camera!

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Ski Sand Glad you liked the vid! I predominately use a Panasonic GH5 for all of my shooting, but a few of the shots in this particular vid were taken with the Sony A7sii. Cheers, – M

  92. Tonda Taylor

  102. Tristan Ngo

    Hey Matt,
    Good job with the list. I think Sugarfish is a bit overrated but that is just my opinion. Btw, try Tito’s Tacos, Johnny Pastrami & Empanadas Place in Culver City… Also, Sam Woo
    BBQ in San Gabriel is worth a look.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Tristan Ngo Awesome! Thanks for the tips! Look forward to checking them out! Cheers-M

    The narrator on this is an insufferable know-it-all hipster douchetard. I only lasted three minutes.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Ryan Wilkinson Awww…I’m sorry dude. Sometimes men have difficulty lasting more than a few minutes. Don’t feel too bad for yourself. It happens to everyone at some point or another. Lemme know if you needs some tips on that. I know everything about that too.

  105. Jessica Hipolito


  106. Alex Rodgers

    Tacos El Venado in North Hollywood…it’s so good that I almost feel like I shouldn’t share it….

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Alex Rodgers But I’m soooo glad you did:) Can’t wait to try it out!
      Cheers- M

  107. Dylan S

    Good video I just thought there was a little too much talking and more close ups of food

  108. J Smith

    What about Pink’s or Philippe’s Original? Or are those just tourist traps?

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      J Smith I’ve actually never been to Philippe’s, but in my opinion…yes…Pink’s is a bit of a tourist trap. Is it bad? No not at all. But is it worth the wait? I don’t really think so. Thanks for the comment.

  109. Connor G

    I’m very offended by your profane language, I was watching this with my 3 year old. Now he’s snorting coke and worshiping santan.

    1. Matt's Travel Tips

      Connor G Sounds like you’re an excellent parent. Keep up the good work. Prouda you slugger.
