Guatemalteca Bakery, Yongsusan

I love to find a new place that is clearly a centre for the local community, and it was wall-to-wall Guatemalan folks in Guatemalteca today (on Beverly a little ways from Pico-Union), not surprising given the excellent quality and value. Groceries, el cheapo baked goods and honest lunch plates; a Los Angeles about 7 miles and one universe away from the Westside.

Hard to find a more diametrically opposed restaurant to Guatemalteca than Yongsusan, the Koreatown royal banquet legend, but hey, this is Low End Theory's restaurants we're talking about here and I'll eat most anything. This meal was incredibly good, it ranks with the greatest multi-course extravaganzas I've had in any cuisine.
