Healthy Los Angeles Takeout Options

Lea Michele spends most of her days on the Glee set in Hollywood, and so she asked us for some healthy—and delicious—takeout ideas in the area. Here’s where we head and what we order when we’re in the neighborhood.

  • 1. Ammo

    1. Ammo

  • 2. Café Gratitude

    2. Café Gratitude

    The Order: Kale Salad w/Kimchi.

  • 3. Sugarfish

    3. Sugarfish

    The Order: Trust Me.

    As its name implies, you should do exactly that (there’s also a Trust Me Lite, for those who can’t down a whole box of sashimi and rolls for lunch). Getting a table usually requires a crazy long wait, but their sushi holds up for takeout. A new location just opened on La Brea.)

  • 4. M Café

    4. M Café

    The Order: Bi-Bim Bop with Salmon (the Grilled Tuna Burger and the M Chopped Salad are great, too).

    It’s a mini-chain (a new outpost just opened in Brentwood), but everything here tastes hand-crafted.

  • 5. Inaka

    5. Inaka

    The Order: The Inaka Plate.

    This perfectly composed meal is essentially macrobiotic Japanese food, and it’s insanely good—though it changes a bit from day to day (depending on what’s in season), you’ll find brown rice, sea veggies, greens, and root vegetables.

  • 6. Mao’s Kitchen

    6. Mao’s Kitchen

    The Order: Tofu Lettuce Cups.

    It can be hard to find healthy Chinese food, but Mao’s is exactly that: When they say no MSG, they mean it.

  • 7. Tender Greens

    7. Tender Greens

    The Order: Chinese Chicken Salad.

    This is a chain, it’s true, but that takes nothing away from this particularly good salad.

  • 8. Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits & Cheese

    8. Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits & Cheese

    The Order: Fresh Mozzarella Sandwich.

    Pretty much everything here is delicious, in no small part due to a genius trick: They drizzle the bread with olive oil and balsamic before they assemble the sandwich.

  • 9. The Ivy

    9. The Ivy

    The Order: Grilled Fresh Vegetable Salad w/Shrimp.

    At $29, this is no joke—but it’s a delicious and special treat.
