20 Droolworthy Junk Food Treats To Eat In L.A.

Not everything in the city of angels involves kale.

1. Da KFC from Seoul Sausage Co.

This Korean fried chicken is flawless and you can find it at periodic pop-ups, as well as at the Coliseum during home games.

2. Pastrami Sandwich and Piggy Fries from The Oinkster

You've never seen pastrami like this. Check them out at 2005 Colorado Blvd.

The signature burger at Father's Office gets a lot of hype. But there is a reason why: It's supremely flavorful, juicy, and delicious. Go eat it now at 3229 Helms Ave.

5. Tacos from Guisado's

Literally any taco on the menu at Guisado's will be delicious. They're not the fancy tacos you'll find at a lot of restaurants. They're minimalist. Made on homemade tortillas, they feature very few ingredients but have maximum flavor. So get one in Echo Park at 1261 W Sunset Blvd.

6. Mac and Cheese Pizza at Pizzanista

It is macaroni and cheese. On pizza. Hi, yes, please. Grab a slice at 2019 E. 7th Street.

7. Ice Cream Sandwiches from Diddy Riese

These ice cream sandwiches are classics for a reason. You may have to wait in line, but it's totally worth heading to 926 Broxton Ave. in Westwood.

8. Pastrami Fries from The Hat

Yes, these are fries covered in a warm, cozy blanket of pastrami and cheese. What about it? Grab some fries at 491 N. Lake Ave. in Pasadena.

9. Donuts at S.K's Donuts

S.K's has a donut that is covered in bacon. IN. BACON. Run to 5850 W. 3rd St. to grab one.

The only authentic Danish bakery in Los Angeles features some of the most delicious pastries around. Give your taste buds a treat at 11113 Washington Blvd. in Culver City.

11. Thai Tea Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from Milk

We all know that ice cream sandwiches are good. But Milk has found a way to make them even better: They swap the cookie for a sweet, crispy French-style macaron. Once you try it at 7290 Beverly Blvd. or 1639 Silver Lake Blvd., you'll never go back.

12. Sausages and Fries from Wurstkuche

This downtown “exotic sausage grill” features more than 20 varieties of sausage, served with a great array of dipping sauces to match. But the unusual meats are the real draw: Rattlesnake and rabbit with jalapeños, anyone? Great! Meet you at 800 E. 3rd St. or 625 Lincoln Blvd in Venice.

13. Sour Skulls from Sockerbit

Swedish candy is both the most sour candy in the world and also the most delicious. Grab a million scoopfuls at 7922 W. 3rd St.

14. Cheesy Mac and Rib from Grilled Cheese Truck

What's better than a grilled cheese? A grilled cheese with ribs. What's better than a grilled cheese with ribs? A grilled cheese with ribs AND mac and cheese. Keep an eye out for the Grilled Cheese Truck to grab your own.

15. A Bajillion Tacos from Tito’s Tacos

The best part about Tito’s, an L.A. Mexican food staple since 1959, is not in the size of the tacos, but in the sheer number one can eat in a sitting. Orders regularly come in double digits, so plan to go big or go home at 11222 Washington Pl. in Culver City.

16. Deep Dish Pizza from Hollywood Pies

That raw, vegan pizza just not working for you anymore? Well, Hollywood Pies (at 6116 1/2 W. Pico Blvd.) has your back with its thick, saucy, gooey Chicago-style deep dish. It'll make you say, “Ohmyholypepperoni."

17. Everything Croissant from Superba Food and Bread

Speaking of Superba, they also make an "everything" croissant that you should eat immediately. It's like an everything bagel had a light, flakey, perfect baby with a croissant. Eat this treasure at 1900 S. Lincoln Blvd.

18. Fruity Pebble Donut Holes from Cafe Dulce

Cereal on yo donut at 134 Japanese Village Plaza in Little Tokyo! The perfect combination of crunchy and creamy.

19. Burger and Fries Animal Style from In-N-Out

(Obviously.) There is a reason In-N-Out has the insane fan following it does. Find the location closest to you here.

20. Fatty Sandwiches from Fat Sal's

If all of these artery-clogging treasures still aren't enough, then there's only one place for you: Fat Sal's, at 1300 N. Highland Ave. Its heroes are essentially an entire meal in one sandwich and will fill you up for days. Try the classic Fat Sal (roast beef, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fries, brown gravy, and mayo on a garlic hero).

Or, if you're bound and determined to go ALL OUT, there's always the "food challenge" for $49.99. You'll have 40 minutes to eat a Big Fat Fatty: a 27-inch garlic hero loaded with cheesesteak, cheeseburgers, pastrami, chicken fingers, bacon, mozzarella sticks, fried eggs, jalapeño poppers, fries, onion rings, chili, marinara sauce and the house signature "fat sauce." Not, needless to say, for the faint of heart.

Big ups to the users at Gogobot for their delicious suggestions.
