Comfort Food

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We don’t know about you, but LAist thinks a broken heart and dampened spirit call for some comfort food. And nothing smashes the heart or rains on the spirit like a big, fat loss to W. In the spirit of moving forward, we humbly offer the following recommendations for those of you seeking solace through your stomach:

    Canter’s Deli on Fairfax—chicken kreplach soup soothes almost any ache, body or soul.
    House of Pies in Los Feliz—how can you be sad when you’re eating pie, especially when it tastes this good?
    Paco’s Tacos on Centinela—tortillas as good as your abuela used to make and bowls of albondigas nearly as big as the aquariums that grace the restaurant.
    Lulu’s Blue Plate Special (formerly Lulu’s Alibi) on Sawtelle—amazing chocolate chip pancakes to make you feel like a kid instead of a disillusioned grown-up.
    Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles on Pico—succulent chicken, melt-in-your mouth waffles, and Big Mama shooing your elbows off the table: what more do you need to feel better?

How about you, dear readers? Is there a restaurant (or bar, as the case may be) that washes away your sorrows and leaves you feeling like maybe you don’t have to move to Canada, at least not before the draft? Let us know your thoughts.
