Anyone visiting Little Tokyo is faced with the dilemma of trying to pick from the vast number of quaint eateries that the neighborhood has to offer. We try to narrow down the list for you, but still, decision fatigue is a real thing.  

Introducing Delicious Little Tokyo, an event to solve all of your culinary woes. Go Little Tokyo has put together a weekend for foodies and Tokyophiles alike to enjoy all that this mini metropolis has to offer in food and drink.

The weekend event begins Friday, July 29, with a Starry Night in Little Tokyo, the 10th annual sake and food tasting event put together by the Little Tokyo Service Center. Try more than 50 Japanese sakes paired with delicious small plates, courtesy of 15-plus local restaurants and specialty vendors. Prices and registration information for this event are still in the works.

The deliciousness continues Saturday, July 30, and Sunday, July 31, as certain restaurants feature special menu items only available during the Delicious Little Tokyo weekend. In addition to food and drink specials, participating restaurants will have giveaways, cooking workshops, chef demos and more. 

And parking can no longer be your excuse to miss out and stay at home because Metro is offering free two-hour parking with validation at three parking lots in the area. 

More event details are to come, so save the date and check back at the event’s site. Be sure to RSVP on Facebook as well.
