How You Can Support LA's Black-Owned Restaurants
They're all black-owned businesses and they're incredibly easy to find thanks to Kat Hong (aka @provoloned and @prosciuttogirl69) who has compiled a handy Google document listing Los Angeles's black-owned restaurants. Anyone — including you — can access it. Hong says she'll keep updating the doc, so let her know what restaurants she should add.
Will this list solve racial injustice, police brutality, economic oppression and deep-seeded systemic racism? No, it will not. But it is one small way you can help businesses in your community.
Seeking superb soul food? Consider Trap Kitchen in Compton, My Two Cents in Mid-Wilshire, Harold & Belle's in Jefferson Park, Soul Restaurant & Bar in Hollywood and Dulan's with locations in Inglewood, Gramercy Park and Leimert Park.
Fried chicken? There's Honey's Kettle in Culver City.
Fried fish? You've got Fishbone Seafood in Compton.
Gumbo? Maybe Sal's Gumbo Shack in Long Beach.
Given how many amazing restaurants Los Angeles has, there are bound to be more than this list contains.
