Breakfast: Three Must Haves


The Breakfast Burger
That’s right, a hamburger. Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica pads a bun with bacon confit, cheddar cheese, a fried egg, and an eight-ounce brisket, short rib, and Black Angus patty. 

The Breakfast Burrito
Pasadena’s Lucky Boy wraps bacon, whole sausage links, avocado, hash browns, and just about anything else you can fit in a tortilla. 

The fiery red broth brimming with tripe, onions, herbs, and spices is a hangover-cure staple, especially the one at East L.A.’s Mi India Bonita Café.
