Chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken are longtime food icons in Los Angeles. Their Border Grill opened in LA's west side in 1990 and has since expanded to Las Vegas, downtown LA, a roving (and really popular) food truck, and cookbook, Cooking with Too Hot Tamales, which reflects their signature spicy and saucy personalities (in the kitchen and out). Feniger's most recent LA eatery, Street, is an experiment (a successful one) in upgrading street foods from around the world, where dishes like kaya toast, a street food from Singapore, lamb kafta meatballs, and seasonal riffs on sag paneer are absolutely mouthwatering.
So when they came to see us recently, we figured there would be no better duo to ask about LA’s best eats, from the ocean to downtown. They divulge their favorite sandwich from local haunt Bay Cities in Santa Monica, as well as Feniger’s favorite pupusas from downtown LA’s Grand Central Market in the video below.
