Long time residents of the area will remember this location as the original location for, Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe. They moved about a mile away, and for the past two years, Mr. Poke has been here. Cafe Terrace was a restaurant that went into this space after Charlie's moved.

The last time I was at Grand Central Market, I went to a seafood place, Prawn. I wasn't in the mood for something heavy, and found Kismet Falafel. So I decided to give them a try.
They are located to the Hill entrance of Grand Central, and they are on the west side of the market. They have a few seats at the counter, or you can find some tables that are spread around the market.
Service was good.
Kismet was ok. I won't return

Counterpart Deli used to be Chango Coffee, and they opened up in December 2018. Counterpart is a vegan deli, offering something that isn't available in the area.
Service is good.
I wouldn't go back to Counterpart Deli for this pastrami!

Lucky Boy was listed by LA Eater as one of the best places to get a breakfast burrito. Lucky Boy serves their breakfast burrito the entire day.
It's one of those greasy spoon type restaurants. It's not really a diner, but then again it's not fast food. There are some hidden gems in these types of restaurants. Lucky Boy is cross the street from My Vegan. They have some outdoor seating on their covered patio. There is the dining room inside. You can order at the window outside or inside.
Service was good.
I wouldn't go back to Lucky Boy for their breakfast sandwiches. Yes, the portion is huge, but very bland, and I doubt it was cooked to order.

Why are there two pictures of Sake Sake Sushi? The first picture is their current location, which opened up in early November, 2018. The second picture was their original location, that was closed down so this shopping center, could get an Aldi grocery store. The original location was right next to Michael's, and on the south side of CVS. Now, they are on the north side of CVS.
This shopping center has many restaurants that I reviewed, the now closed China Gate, San Biagio's Pizza, and Handel's Ice Cream- where Wednesday nights are $1.35 scoops!!
The lunch time all you can eat is $21.95. The only rules are 90 minutes to order, you must eat the rice, and any leftover pieces are charged at $1.50 per piece.
Shrimp Tempura hand roll- just a ton of crabmeat. The shrimp tempura was ok.
Crunch Rainbow Roll-Salmon, tuna, albacore outside. Crabmeat, crabstick, shrimp tempura inside. This had a bit too much sauce, but a good dish.
Service was pretty good. One thing, they total came out to $23.65. But, when I signed the credit card the card was charged $23.95. Now, 30 cents isn't a big deal, I did take away that 30 cents from his tip.
Sake Sake Sushi was pretty good, but not as good as some other all you can eat sushi restaurants. I won't go back.

by Chloe is a vegan restaurant that is attached to the Whole Foods 365 store in Silver Lake. It's a fast casual restaurant with a few tables spread around the restaurant. You can walk directly into the 365 store, without going outside again. Chloe has a few locations, some in the northeast and in Europe. I believe this is their only
I didn't mean to shout, but Chloe's website had the descriptions in all caps. I'm too lazy to write type all that. Anyways, a damn good burger. Very good flavor, the potato bun held up well to the patty and toppings.
Large Mac & Cheese, $8.95. SWEET POTATO-CASHEW CHEESE SAUCE, SHIITAKE BACON, ALMOND PARM. The shiitake back threw me off, because it tasted like real bacon, a bit less smoke flavor, but still very good. The cheese sauce was good and the huge shells, cooked perfectly, were coated with the liquid gold.
Service was good.
I would go back to Chloe again!
