Crenshaw

5C's
2329 W 54th St, Phone: 323-298-9313
Excellent catfish sandwich, soft roll and crunchy seafood satisfies everytime.

Jerk Pit
4335 Crenshaw Boulevard, (323) 298-3000
Jerk chicken gets mixed reviews but the oxtails and curried goat at this charmingly named Jamaican restaurant are to die for. Beef pattie - really good.

M&M Soul Food
3552 West Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard (323) 299-1302
Ignore the titters of the waitstaff when you order chitlins, this is a fine spot for absolutely enormous soul food plates. Naturally oxtails are the thing to get but other dishes consistently tasty.

Philip's Bar-b-que
4307 Leimert Blvd. 323/292-7613 also new branch closer to 10 freeway on Crenshaw
At some point barbeque becomes so good that quality is a matter of preference for the novice. Nonetheless, the vibe, burning hot sauce, ribs, links and sliced beef have made a convert of me. Philip's is my favourite barbeque in L.A.

Stevie's On The Strip
Famous and superfine gumbo and soul food spot. Gumbo is loaded with fine meats and grassy file taste is irresistable. Fried chicken and fish - thumbs up. Highly recommended!!

Natraliart
3426 W Washington Blvd , Crenshaw ( 323 ) 732 - 8865
If you want Jamaican food in LA, Jucy Natraliart is the MAN! Tremendous oxtails and curried goat, with the usual fixings including fried plantains and wonderful beans 'n rice. Add some habanero sauce and a glass of sorrel or Ting for my favourite Jamaican in LA. Warning - go early and be nice to Jucy, he's a cool dude but it's a small operation and he's pretty busy.

What about Tasty Que barbeque. Its a southern favorite and one of the best bar be que houses on Crenshaw. They offer a wide variety of Southern soul food cousin. It's barbeque and cuisine authenticity is difficult to challenge. I give it 4 stars for bar be que and an alternative to Philips and Woodys.
