4. Alibi Room instead of the Kogi Truck line
We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with craving Roy Choi’s famous food truck fare, but that line almost always stretches around the block. Why wait for hours with less savvy eaters when you could sit comfortably at the Alibi Room and get the same stuff? The bar serves kogi tacos, sliders, and hot wings until midnight. The best part? When that kimchi quesadilla soaks up all the alcohol you had earlier, you won’t have to walk anywhere to get another drink.
Mon-Sat 5:30p-midnight. 12236 Washington Blvd., Culver City (310-390-9300)
