Peking Tavern@Downtown LA ★★★

Friends & Family Soft Opening. Chinese Gastropub by the two Andrew's, opening soon in Downtown LA. Innovative concept. Drinks were fantastic. Chinese food were great and authentic, esp. the gluten-free dumplings. Fried Pork Dumplings were very juicy. I recommend eating it in one bite to avoid squirting. The Pulled-Noodles were Made from Scratch in the Kitchen. See the action live through the window. Scallion Pancake was very nice too. Great place to hang out. $3 flat rate parking lot within a block away.

Urth Cafe@Downtown ★

Very crowded place for lunch. My tip is to call in to order first so that you can avoid the long line. Since the full ($11.50) and the half ($8.95) portion sandwiches are only $2.75 difference, I would order a full and save half for tomorrow. Their pesto sauce is nicely blended with a spice of pine nuts. The Organic Green Tea Boba Blended ($4.75) is perfect for a hot summer day.

Grilled Veggie with Pesto - Half $8.95, Full $11.50
