Local Spotlight: Top Round

One of the most conflicting question for all couples everywhere is the dreaded “Where do you want to go eat?” While I’m a huge planner and I have endless lists of places I want to go try, sometimes nothing really seems appealing.

A few weeks ago, I was looking for a low-key place to enjoy a quick lunch. We ventured out and came across Top Round. I had previously heard about Top Round from Cashmere and Cupcakes who raved about their custard. After a quick look at their menu list, I was sold. The place has a cute oldies vibe, simple tasty roast beef sandwiches with curly fries. My husband became an instant fan.

He got the Black & Blue sandwich and I got the Bar-B-Cue sandwich. We shared some curly fries and ordered the Chocolate Turtle custard. Everything was delicious. Sometimes it pays to explore something new and not default to the usual burger spot.

I’d highly recommend checking them out if you’re ever in LA. Plus they have nice free parking lot, which in LA is enough to earn them extra stars for that alone.

Do you have a favorite little joint in your city or do you recommend anything for me to try in LA?

    This looks like a great little spot to stop at for lunch! I totally missed this place when I was in LA a few months ago, but will put it on my list for my next visit.

    You have no idea how many fights that phrase “where do you want to eat” has sparked with me and my boyfriend. I wish we lived in LA so I could just point out this blog post to him and cut out the argument!

    Those fries are calling to me!!

    Have you been to Fonuts yet? I go there almost every time I’m in LA. I tried the Whisper Lounge at The Grove this weekend for the first time and it was really good!
