Restaurant211 E Broadway, Glendale, CA 91205, United States
"Drive to Raffi’s Place, which is a massive, bustling Mediterranean restaurant that is indoors, but it's made to look like it's outdoors. The service is impeccable. It's huge, filled with families eating their hearts out at any hour of the day. They do an incredible eggplant dip and incredible hummus, and this thing called the Tadig stew, where you bake beans on top of a layer of rice."

"There is a stunning, colorful taco truck called Mariscos Jalisco. They specialize in seafood tacos — in particular, a ceviche, and also these really special fried shrimp tacos that are so fucking sensational and addictive. You will order two, then you’ll probably go back and order another two, then you might even order another two."
Coffee shop3206 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States
"My favorite café is a little hole-in-the-wall called Dayglow in West Hollywood. You can go there, pick up your perfect cup of coffee — perhaps an iced oat cortado, that's what I get. And then you sit outside — choose not to sit on the really hot aluminum benches, sit on the curb, because the streets are always really quiet."
Greek restaurant23410 Civic Center Way, Malibu, CA 90265, United States
"Get a huge meal at this long-running Greek restaurant in Malibu called Taverna Tony. There's such satisfaction in doing this big hike and being a little bit dirty, and just turning up to a restaurant and knowing they're going to treat you as well as some celebrity that might walk in."
