Blink and you'll probably miss Fundamental LA, a hip Westwood sandwich shop that consistently makes some of the most satisfying and original sandwiches east or west of the 405. Crisp, fried sweetbreads, their richness mellowed by tart pickled turnips, piled on a fresh brioche. Egg salad made sublime by cream in lieu of mayo. And their vanilla cream soda is the best in the city. The menu is small but exceptionally well curated, and although the décor is minimalist, the sandwiches are not. That's not to say these are the sort of meat-heavy messes that revel in their own excess, but they're not some dainty theoretical exercise in bread and meat.
