A tiny, wonderful operation at the end of a circuitous route through the sleepy, industrial Frogtown neighborhood, Wax Paper makes cutting-edge versions of the most iconic sandwiches (with a few new creations thrown in, too). Out of a small, aluminum shed tucked away on a dead-end street, small-batch sandwiches are crafted and sent out to be eaten on basic Ikea outdoor tables in a dirt lot next door. In true hipster fashion, each sandwich is named after a National Public Radio personality, but regardless of possible pretensions, these sandwiches are the real deal. Try the Audie Cornish, a classic French-style ham sandwich elevated by homemade honey butter.

Great sandwiches made with high quality ingredients made from a cute little shop right off the LA River bike trail. You're safe with any sandwich on the menu, but the Terry Gross (turkey, green chili aioli, jalapeno slaw, pepper jack cheese) is my personal favorite. Worth making the trek for.
