With Los Angeles’ restaurants opening back up for the first time in over a year, The K is ecstatic to get out of the house and support some of our favorite restaurants!
And so, enjoy our third installment of the newest “K Recommends” series in which we partner with our favorite restaurants across LA and give you the opportunity to indulge in their delicacies at no cost!
For this week’s recommendation and partnership, we are ecstatic to showcase Ggiata Delicatessen.
Let me just start this out by saying, Ggiata makes my favorite sandwiches in all of Los Angeles… Yes, more than Bay Cities.
The authentic Italian Style deli sandwiches first popped up on my radar in early 2020. They were only doing pick up and delivery (of course) but had already started to generate a buzz in my food inclined circles. The first time I ordered, I was sold. At first it was the charred bread that sold me- soft, crispy, fresh, oily, and somehow not overwhelming. And it repeatedly survived the toil of delivery. With each passing month, new sandwiches were tested and added- not one disappointed.
Of the 6 sandwiches I’ve tried, The Masterpiece and The Don Pepe are still my favorites. With the addition of a flagship location on Melrose came sides, salads, and more- I’ve truly only scratched the surface of what is shaping up to be one of LA’s hottest contemporary delis that forever and always will pay homage to the classics. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, I’d recommend nowhere else. Enjoy.
Winner announced on 3/29.
