      the subject was "oldest" not best known. Some of the most famous 'institutions' in LA were absent because to they're too 'new' like 60-70 years young. I've been going to some of these joints for 40+ years:

      1) El Tepeyac Cafe - East LA
      2) Original Pantry Cafe - downtown
      3) Pink's Hotdogs - Fairfax/mid sites
      4) Philippe The Original - Chinatown
      5) The Apple Pan - West LA
      6) Tommy's Original World Famous Hamburgers - Beverley & Rampart (1st store)
      6) Langer's - LA
      7) Canter's Deli - Fairfax district
      8) Nate 'n Al's - Beverly Hills
      9) Clifton's Cafeteria - Historic downtown
      10) Dan Tana's - West Hollywood

            food trucks have become incubators for restaurant concepts popping up all over town apparently it has infected the rest of the country. before there was a Roy Choi (aka Kogi BBQ Taco truck) we called them 'roach coaches.' My issue is they now all think $20-25 is reasonable for a 'quick bite' with no where to sit on a busy street sharing the sidewalk with pan handlers, streetwalkers, you name it.
