Oki Dog | Mid-Wilshire/ Hancock Park | American, Mexican | Restaurant
Immortalized by the Descendents, beloved by the Germs, the original Oki Dog, long since closed, was to the original '70s punk-rock scene in Los Angeles what the Brown Derby was to 1940s filmdom. The most famous creation here at the stand that remains is the eponymous dog, a couple of frankfurters wrapped in a tortilla with chili, pickles, mustard, a slice of fried pastrami and a torrent of goopy American cheese - a cross-cultural burrito that's pretty hard to stomach unless you've got the tum of a 16-year-old, but strangely delicious nonetheless. American Cross-Culture.
