The South LA shopping mall has a surprisingly awesome selection of restaurants.

The Baldwin Hills Crenshaw shopping center isn't exactly the first place that comes to mind when it comes to hubs of great restaurants. Well it's time to think again, because along with Govind Armstrong's Post & Beam and Jaime Martín del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu's Jonathan Gold-approved Mexicano, two new options will be joining the South LA dining pack: Michelle's Country Diner and The Kickin' Crab.

Toddrickallen reports construction on two restaurants in the mall. First, Michelle's Country Diner, a homey restaurant by Michelle Allaire, is taking over the old Fatburger location. Next up, The Kickin' Crab, a Boiling Crab-esque Cajun restaurant that currently has ten locations throughout California.

Is South LA headed for a full-blown restaurant renaissance? Let's cross our fingers.
