Colapasta

Great pastas ($11-$14) made fresh and topped with farmers’ market produce. 1241 5th St., Santa Monica.

L.A. is lousy with smashburgers these days, but this is one ($3.95) of the best. 425 Rose Ave., Venice.

Tacos 1986

These Tijuana-style tacos ($3.25-$5) have the obligatory heavy dollop of guac atop especially flavorful meats and mushrooms. 609 S. Spring St., downtown.
