Best Mumbai Street Food Los Angeles 2011 

Mumbai Ki Galliyon Se

Eateries in Artesia's Little India offer a rich and broad variety of South Asian cuisine. But none surpasses Mumbai Ki Galliyon Se for its authentic street food of Mumbai — that's Bombay to you English colonialist types. This simple, clean place in a strip mall has scrumptious dahi batata puri (a complexly flavored lentil-stuffed fried ball), dabeli (a spicy potato snack featuring grapes and pomegranate seeds), pav bhaji (a soupy spice-and-veggies concoction) and piyush (a shakelike beverage made with saffron and pistachios), all at prices that will make even the brokest Angeleno feel like a slumdog millionaire. 17705 Pioneer Blvd., Artesia. (562) 860-6699.

  • Iconic Movie and TV Houses of L.A.
    Whether it’s a central location in a feature film or just an establishing shot on a sitcom, Los Angeles has some of the most iconic movie and TV houses in the world.

    Houses such as Nancy’s from A Nightmare on Elm Street in Hollywood or the Cunningham’s house from Happy Days in Hancock Park are instantly recognizable. While directors, location managers and production designers are looking for homes that will best serve the story, inevitably many of these dwellings become celebrated. Perhaps a time machine made out of a DeLorean raced into the driveway. Maybe an extraterrestrial who phoned home was hidden there.

    From the Valley to Venice, from Beverly Hills to Baldwin Hills, the sprawling landscape and vastly different neighborhoods of L.A. make up a “backlot” like no other.

    Special thanks to the Location Managers Guild of America for its assistance.
