Philippes, for those who don't know, is a Los Angeles landmark. Their French Dip Roast Beef Sandwiches are legendary, from the tip of San Pedro to the double-wide trailers of Sun Valley.
The food was good. The price was better. I snagged a decent Lamb sandwich for only $6.75.
I might even go back to Philippes if it weren't for the awful location.
You see, the far eastern and northern sector of downtown Los Angeles has a distinctive urine-y smell. That's something you don't want to think about when you're eating wet meat on wet bread.
On a positive note however, I can scratch off another activity that makes living in Los Angeles so iconic.
