Here are just a few of the new and notable restaurants to hit Los Angeles in the past few weeks, from Koreatown ramen and drinks to Pasadena poke and all-day bubble teas.
Mesón Cafe has hit Larchmont. The simple coffee, sandwich, and salad shop should fit in nicely with the upscale walking neighborhood, offering organic brews, lots of morning juice, and communal seating in a low-frills environment. 459 N. Western Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90004
Slurpin’ Ramen Bar is up and running in Koreatown. Not to be confused with West Hollywood’s new addition Slurp Ramen, this 8th Street option goes beyond the bowl with appetizers like gyoza and takoyaki, followed through with desserts, sake and plenty of cheap beer. 3500 W. 8th St., Los Angeles, CA 90005
PokeMix by Flour + Tea is adding to the influx of Hawaiian raw fish, this time on Lake Avenue in Pasadena. Offering milk teas and pastries in addition to poke, the new shop looks to establish itself as a casual all day option. 99 S. Lake Ave. Ste. 102, Pasadena, CA 91101
