L.A. is famous for a few eateries and Phillipe's is number one at the top of that list. It's over one hundred years old and is well known for inventing the French dipped sandwich. Its in the heart of Chinatown and has also been featured on a few television shows including the Travel Channel. The restaurant has such an ambiance to it, from the long tables you share with other people to the wood chips on the floor.
They have lamb, ham, turkey, beef, and pork sandwiches but my personal favorite is the lamb. I've had the beef and the lamb but the lamb is the winner winner chicken dinner! The chili straight up was also super yum and they have 75cent lemonade to quench your thirst. They're also known for their hot mustard, which you can take home in jars for $3.75. Note: this hot mustard is HOT HOT HOT. Delicious, yes. Mouthburning, definitely yes. Enjoy!
