No matter how long you’ve been in Los Angeles, there are some parts of town that are just for driving through, not stopping. Sure, if you live in the area, you probably know what’s there, but for those of us who don’t live within a couple blocks, we would never go out of our way to go there. It’s a convenience strip of a street, not a destination. West Adams is one of them. Pico, between Sawtelle and Centinela, is another. Anyone who pays attention to the restaurant scene will tell you that these strips are prime real estate for trendy new businesses.
Case in point: Pikoh. What started off as a international-inspired Californian all-day eatery has turned into a purely Peruvian dinner spot heavy on the cocktails and ceviche. While they’re making us wait for the return of daytime eats, we can’t deny this place is cute as hell, so we’ll keep trekking out to that random street of Pico.
UPDATE: As of October 2019, Pikoh is temporarily closed.
