Pho 87 has some of the best.
Another of my favorite Vietnamese spots, Via Cafe is just a couple blocks away from the Chinatown metro as well.
Those close at 9 and 10... so no.
K-Town is the best place to find late night eats, not as much in Chinatown and Little Tokyo unfortunately.
i didn't realize dino's was open late. that spot is dank
And yeah, Dino's is open until at least 11 every night. I think they close at midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Got a weekend pass and am coming up from San Diego. Great lineup!
Looking for some lodging advice. I booked a room at the Super 8 at 1341 W Sunset Blvd, which is next to Dodgers Stadium but am thinking about switching to the Doubletree at 120 South Los Angeles Street. I'm not familiar with these neighborhoods -- are either/neither/both safe for walking at night after the fest?
The FYF Fest website says the Doubletree is a 10-minute walk from the fest, but Google Maps shows it as 1.2 miles, so it would require some pretty fast feet to do that in 10 minutes. Is there some kind of shortcut that Google doesn't know about?
Don't stay near Dodger Stadium, you're not near public transpo there. Definitely do the Doubletree! it's right in the middle of Little Tokyo, very nice neighborhood. The hotel is about 4 blocks from the Little Tokyo/Arts District Gold Line train stop. It costs $1.50 each way to use + a one time $1 fee to purchase a tap card upon which you put your fares. The Chinatown Gold Line stop is two stops from LT, less than a 5 minute ride, and drops you basically right at the entrance of the festival.
Also, a bunch of us will likely be meeting up at Wustkuche at least one of the mornings for great sausages and good German and Belgian beers. Wurstkuche is an easy walk from that hotel too.
Glad I asked, thanks for the info Drinkey. I'll switch to the Doubletree for sure. And the Wustkuche menu looks awesome!
Has anyone gotten their tickets in the mail?
Well, its front gate, and did they send an email regarding them being sent out? I bet they dont mail em til july.
Yesterday I got the ticket that I ordered last week, but haven't received the tickets I ordered the day they went on sale.
This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
I ordered my ticket on Tuesday and it arrived on Friday.
Got a room at the LA Hotel for $105 name-your-own-price on Priceline (you never know what you're going to get with that, but it looks pretty decent, so hey). World Trade Center across the street has cheap weekend parking, so I can avoid expensive hotel valet parking. Bus and metro stops a couple of blocks away. And we can walk to Mendocino Farms and try out the Three Little Pigs sandwich that Bryan suggested.
Any decent parking options near the Doubletree? It charges $30/day for self-parking...
