We work in a very special place: Downtown Los Angeles. People don't normally visit Downtown LA, unless they're here to do business. We get to come here every single day, and slowly but surely Los Angeles is revealing herself to us.

Normally for lunch, we chose one of the more close and convenient options: Americano, Novel Cafe,  Men-oh Ramen, and we're definitely guilty of hitting up Wurstküche or Pie Hole on occasion. But not today. No, today we ventured out of our little bustling bubble, and trekked over the Grand Central Market, a Los Angeles staple full of food, history, and neon.

Cindy settled on a Pupusa, though she definitely had Egg Slut on her mind.

Alisa gave in and got the most delicious burger from Egg Slut.

There's a legendary burrito that's the best in Los Angeles that can be found at the Grand Central Market... if only Matt could remember which booth served it!

I got a "Fairfax" from Egg Slut: "softly" scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, chives, cheddar and sriracha. I didn't even manage to take a picture of it because it was gone before I even remembered to document it!

The Grand Central Market (or the GCM, if you're hip. Or, I might have just made that up.) is a wonderland of type. Neon type, hand painted type, amazing "bad" type, you name it.

There is so much to look at, it's almost overwhelming. Our last stop at the GCM/Grand Central Market was DTLA Cheese. Alisa runs her own cheese page on Facebook, so naturally she decided to pose with all the fromage. No one could blame her; look at all that beautiful cheese!

The four of us only managed to take one group shot, naturally in a piece of art that was displayed. We're still not clear on the concept, but at least we got a photo!

This day was so packed, we had to split it up into three different posts. Stay tuned!
