One of the best parts of staying out late in LA has to be getting a late night snack. New York City may be known as the city that never sleeps, but LA should be known as the city that always has food! Just think after a long night, there’s nothing better than getting a belly full of delicious food as preparation for a good night’s sleep. Maybe you’re out with the girls or your job has you working into the wee hours, but you probably don’t want to resort to fast food all the time, which is completely understandable.
