LA 27th Restaurante Familiar
Los Angeles, CA 90006
LA Weekly's Description
La 27th. The fritanga plate, in all its magnificence, is a crunchy tower of protein and shaved green bananas reaching almost halfway to heaven. You will find the well-marinated Nicaraguan-style carne asada on the plate, slivers of pork, and perhaps a few spareribs, rubbed with chile and deep-fried to a spurting crispness. At La 27th, a family-owned Nicaraguan restaurant, there are also chorizos, a skein of plump, peppery sausages that half encircle the plate like a retaining wall, the requisite pickled cabbage, and fried bricks of salty cheese that squeak like Wisconsin Cheddar curds when you bite into them. But La 27th's fritanga is a formidable plate of food.
Tips from foursquare
Get the Fritanga. It's an assortment of typical Nicaraguan food.

Carne asada a la 27th with a Cacao is my favorite. Nica for life!
We ordered sopa de res, carne asada y pescado empanizado and of course a few Toñas, good Nicaraguan food and prices. We'll be back soon.
It's typical Nicaragüan food. Good quality food.
