  • EaterPetty Cash is probably the best place to score some pretty standout tacos, uni-laced guacamole, and agave-based cocktails in this part of town.

    55555 by Eater


  • Kayleigh H.Service was slow, but the al pastor tacos were solid.

    55555 by Kayleigh H.

    55555 by Peter Janowski

  • Christopho L.Pig Ear Nachos - covered in poblano pepper crema and a fried egg. So give it a shot. If you’re still hungry afterward, the cheesy churros are there for you.

    55555 by Christopho L.


  • Los Angeles TimesRecommended dishes: Pig's ear nachos, aguachile, tacos al pastor.

    55555 by Los Angeles Times


  • LAistThe fresh aguachile with mahi mahi, scallops, shrimp and octopus delivered. It's a bright citrus-and-spice spiked Sonoran concoction that comes in a massive lava rock molcajete

    55555 by LAist


  • Matt S.Definitely start off with the crispy Brussels Sprouts, enough too share between two.

    55555 by Matt S.


  • EaterThe sustainable, wonderfully executed proteins they pack into their taco platters garner fans from far beyond their local neighborhood.

    55555 by Eater


  • James L.-get a margarita "with the good shit", hamachi ceviche, small & costly but worth trying, dirty horchata bliss, cochinita pibil tacos & maitake mushroom tacos build momentum, octopus tacos for the win

    55555 by James L.


  • Jen Pollack B.Pay the extra $3 for your Petty Cash margarita with the good sh*t

    33333 by Julie G.

    55555 by Los Angeles


  • BrianOrder the Deshebrada Quesadilla, Pork Belly Carnitas Taco, Charcoal Grill Octopus Taco, and thebomb.com (guac, sea urchin, and chicharrones).

    55555 by Brian


  • John S.Shuffleboard in the back is brilliant. Get a table back there and have fun.

    55555 by John S.


  • Sarah D.Just a tad pricey, but the food and drinks really are fantastic. Order a Diving Bell or Oaxacan Old Fashioned. No wait, both, and in that order.

    55555 by Sarah D.


  • Richard A.Ceviche Negro is incredible!!

    55555 by Richard A.


  • EaterA colorful and fun new eatery conducive to social dining (many communal picnic-style tables). There's deep fried cheesy churros, a bevy of tacos, and even raw pork ceviche.

    55555 by Eater


  • Los AngelesThe Bomb.com is a brilliant combination of made-to-order guacamole, Santa Barbara sea urchin, and chicharrones that melt and crackle in your mouth while the Beastie Boys blast from the DJ console.

    55555 by Los Angeles


  • Jeniffer H.Add sea urchin to everything!

    55555 by Jeniffer H.


  • Scott K.Octopus taco. Try it and understand why it's no 1$ taco

    33333 by Scott K.


  • Trisha M.Hated this place. I don't want to sit family style next to hipster freaks

  • Joshua S.Al Pastor tacos were the best and Brussels Sprouts are a must

    55555 by Joshua S.


  • Adam F.Al pastor.

    55555 by Adam F.


  • SandeepDecent food but very very over priced for whats on offer. 6 bucks for a tiny taco is a bit much. Drinks are very good though and priced normal. For the tacos, hit the trucks down the street.

    33333 by Sandeep


  • CherylOctopus tacos - so good!

    55555 by Cheryl


  • Sara NGood food, but a bit overpriced, in my opinion. Still worth a try!

    55555 by Sara N


  • Steve C.Grilled Octopus Tacos!

    55555 by Steve C.


  • Jessica C.The pig ear nachos are amazing. The tortillas are hand made all day and are so chewy and delish- the fish taco, el pastor, carnitas and the carne asada - perfection. Coming back again soon.

    55555 by Jessica C.


  • Jessica C.Playlist needs a little boost in the pizzazz dept and the dinner lighting needs to be a more vibey. Other than that, it's a great easy new spot in the neighborhood! Great homemade ginger brew-Try it!

    55555 by Jessica C.


  • Caroline O.The crispy brussels sprouts are even better when you ask for the crema on the side and lightly seasoned.

    55555 by Caroline O.


  • Fenny F.Don't think twice - octopus tacos.

    33333 by Fenny F.


  • Iknow T.Crispy Brussel sprouts are just burnt brussel sprouts. Nothing special. Way way way way too salty. Portobello taco was ok but so oily that it left me feeling vile. LA-Average. You could miss it...

    33333 by Iknow T.


  • Gail H.Margs are good (better be!) but definitely try the octopus taco - not to be missed. Also the carnitas was a good choice. Both sans onion of course.

    55555 by Gail H.


  • Rob B.Octopus tacos are a must have, and the guacamole is lime-filled and spectacular as well.

    55555 by Rob B.


  • Kim I.Best meal in town. Must trys: brussels sprouts & portobello mushroom taco. Your mouth will thank me.

    55555 by Kim I.


  • Christopher D.Food and drink is spot on. This place definitely has staying power.

    55555 by Christopher D.


  • Mucho C.Creative ׳Japanexican©' (my word) cuisine with a great cocktail program. Enjoy.

    55555 by Mucho C.


  • Jen Pollack B.It's really all about the cocktails here since they dropped the "urban violence" theme.

    33333 by Jen Pollack B.


  • LauraHuntStyleI recommend the Hamachi Tartare Cones. Made with yellow tail, black cobra chiles, pac choi salad, miso, sesame oil and black sesame seeds. DELICIOUS!

    55555 by LauraHuntStyle


  • Peter J.Whatever it once was, it's over. This Mexicali-inspired Chinese kick doesn't work. The insultingly huge Sedlar plates paired with teeny portions are sometimes acceptable. But not with insipid food.

    33333 by Peter J.


  • ThePurplePassport.comA new neighborhood restaurant, Playa wraps up a myriad influences and mixing them up with world cuisines in tasty maize cakes. Its fusion fare that really reflects the multicultural quilt of the city.

    55555 by ThePurplePassport.com


  • Tasting TableTry the absurdly good Mediterranean “maize cake” with lamb meatballs, capers, olives and feta:

    55555 by Tasting Table


  • Elle M.Don't go here if you are hungry. Our food took forever. It's like a Tapa's place. You have to order a few plates to get full. Make sure you have a few hours to do this dinner.

    33333 by Elle M.


  • Caroline O.Locals night Mon-Fri 5:30-7:30pm. 1/2 off apps and discounted cocktails at the bar!

    55555 by Caroline O.

    55555 by Caleb C.

  • Steph S.Get the blue corn muffins! Wait time is ridiculous though and service wasn't great today :/

    33333 by Steph S.


  • Rob H.Waffle with jalapeños and the duck hash is the perfect getting released from prison breakfast.

    55555 by Rob H.


  • Vicki H.The lobster is delicious. Try anything with lobster. Drinks are STRONG.

    55555 by Vicki H.


  • Where Los Angeles MagazineFeatured in WhereLA.com's "Where to Brunch in LA." "Innovative menu includes: jalapeño-studded waffles w/piloncillo-pepita salsa, New Mexico red chile tamales & huevos rancheros w/chipotle béarnaise."

  • DAN C.Order a cocktail. You are in the capable hands of professionals. Let them work their magic. You may thank me later...

    55555 by DAN C.


  • Serious EatsStreetfighter: Golden-hued and rich. The color comes from turmeric and plays nicely off the richness from coconut cream and the sweet tartness from a burst of pineapple and a hint of aromatic mint.

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Tammy Z.Sweet corn flan, Tortilla imprinted with edible flowers, Maize cake with liquid nitrogen, Hope Floats, A Diving Bell, A Beer and a Ball

  • Kitty L.The Andalusian cocktail is TDF. Sit at the bar!

    55555 by Kitty L.


  • Josh R."A Oaxacan The Clouds" is my new fave drink in LA. Mezcal, roasted farm tomatoes on top.

    55555 by Josh R.


  • ThrillistThis new shared-plate LA Latin-fusion spot is great for a date, but don't be surprised if you don't want to share the "Spice Trade": double aged rum/ galangal/ kaffir lime tincture/ bitter lemon.

    55555 by Thrillist


  • Eric B.Octo Palm and the Arroz con Pato are a must order

    55555 by Eric B.


  • Caroline O.Ask for Scotch so you can watch the bartender climb the ladder since it's on the top shelf.

    55555 by Caroline O.


  • ThirstyinLAAn Andalusian: 3 Ways is a reposado tequila-based cocktail, made with a different sherry and twist, depending on whether you have it before, during or after your meal.
