In this month's issue of Food & Wine Magazine, L.A. got a nod for having one of the country's top 10 food streets. Sawtelle Boulevard, which is the heart of Little Osaka in West L.A., made the cut on the list that was curated by Jonathan Gold.

Other cities that made the list were Durham, NC; Portland, OR; Philadelphia, PA; Boulder, CO; San Francisco, CA; New Orleans, LA; Los Angeles, CA; Brooklyn, NY; Louisville, KY; and, Chicago, IL.

Some of the spots that F&W highlighted include Soba Sojibo, Seoul Sausage Co., Tsujita L.A., Kiriko, and the Giant Robot gallery.

We're huge fans of that part of the city, and have to give a shout out to some of our other favorite streets in L.A. for eating, like 3rd Street in Mid-City (Son of a Gun, Simplethings, Joans on 3rd, and Little Next Door), Abbot Kinney (The Tasting Kitchen, Gjelina, Axe, and Intelligentsia), the up-and-coming Rose Ave. (Superba Snack Bar, Cafe Gratitude, and Moon Juice), and Sherman Way in the San Fernando Valley (epic Thai and Mexican eats all around).
