When it first opened in 1979, La Salsa Fresh Mexican Grill was a simple taqueria in Los Angeles. Its open kitchen gave patrons a front-row seat to watch chefs transform fresh ingredients into bold, memorable Mexican dishes. Today, the original concept has evolved into a booming franchise, but each location works on the same principle: add a modern twist to classic Mexican food. Chefs continue to work in an open-kitchen environment where they concoct seven types of homemade salsas—laced with ingredients such as fire-roasted roma tomatoes, cilantro and garlic, and even mango—to complement carne asada tacos, los cabos shrimp burritos, and hefty bowls packed with chicken, fire-roasted veggies, and plenty of cheese. The kitchen crew also assembles large breakfasts of eggs and chorizo as well as huevos rancheros for early risers and paperboys who demand a tip in the form of eggs.

Extreme Pizza is not your run-of-the-mill, ma-and-pa pizza shop. Here, the cooks pile their house-baked crusts with a slew of uncommon combinations, including the ginger-peanut-sauce-marinated chicken strewn across the Kickin’ Chicken pizza, which is also topped with peanuts, green onions, swiss, fontina, mozzarella, and fresh cilantro. The Paia Pie may seem standard with pineapple and Canadian bacon, but the addition of mandarin oranges and its mozzarella-cheddar blend make it more unique than a unicorn with two horns. As an alternative to the pies, freshly baked calzones, creatively loaded salads, monster subs, and chicken wings also populate the menu.
If you stop by Harumi Sushi between Monday and Thursday, you can get a sake bomb with your monkey brain. Both names might sound a tad alarming, but they're hardly literal: the sake bombs consist of a shot of sake dropped into a cup of beer, and the monkey brain is an appetizer of mushrooms, each deep-fried and stuffed with spicy tuna.
Other names on the menu are more honest. The rainbow roll, for example, does indeed flaunt several colors—its snow crab and avocado filling is decorated with different slices of raw fish. The staff arranges the orange blossom roll into the shape of a blooming flower, while the salmon wrapped around the rice lends orange to the presentation. And, the flaming dragon roll's combination of yellowtail, snow crab, shrimp, and tuna is actually cooked in fire, rather than simply tricked out in racecar flame decals.
Besides its rolls, the restaurant also cooks up Japanese dishes such as udon soups and teriyaki-flavored meats. Its bento boxes allow guests to sample a bit of everything, with compartments for chicken teriyaki, tempura vegetables, and sashimi or a California roll.
