Shops of various dishes of different countries and night shops in some bar like, enjoying drinks and snacks and ramen MS and others to dinner in a Chinese restaurant was range.

  • I have been coming here since I was a kid and Angeles flight was open. I love this place. A lot of new younger and a blend of awesome restaurants have started up. My fear is that the market place feel of getting something good cheap has disappeared but still a nice place to try especially if you want some good Filipino bowl or Mexican or any of he cool hip new places to eat.
  • Such a fantastic variety of food establishments. There are some vendors who have been here for decades. Others are new, but you can come here often and it would still take a long time to try every option. Unfortunately, they only have pay lots in the area and offer no parking validation. There is some street metered parking, but you have to get lucky to get those spots. Seating can be a challenge especially during peak hours. A few of the eateries have their own seating, but even then it's very limited.
  • An eclectic collection of mostly prepared food stalls. For Downtown Los Angeles, the Grand Central Market is like an oasis in the middle of mostly quiet streets. Lots of the usual and good Mexican restaurants, pizza, seafood, Japanese, Chinese, American style deli/BBQ, El Salvadoran, and a few others. The food is a good value, reasonably priced and delicious. Lots of choices and options for everyone. There is available seating located all around the market. Alcohol is available from a few of the bars.
  • This is a great place to go for late night eats when you're craving something particular but everywhere that usually serves what you're in the mood for, is closed. The quality in food preparation is slightly higher than food trucks and there are so many different booths that offer a variety of different kinds of food to choose from. You can go with a group of friends when nobody can decide where or what they want to eat, and it's also a nice place to go sight seeing in Downtown LA. So if you go during the day, it's a cool area to stop by at if you get hungry while you're walking around. I gave it 5 stars because it's a nice place to go and experience different foods without having to travel too far from one location. The pricing is decent and the food is delicious.. even though it may be packed with other huge crowds , I'd honestly say it's worth the wait.Take a chance!
  • This place is great! We thoughroughly enjoyed our visit. There is a wide variety of food vendors which offer everything from oysters to PB&J. Prices vary and nothing really gets too pricey. The vibe is modern and hip without being too full of itself. 5/5 stars, will definitely be coming back.
