If you need a late meal, Animal is open until 2am on weekends. Food is great and they serve "PBR" in a can.-Michael Voltaggio, Top Chef
Featured on LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants!
Take a walk on the tasty side of fun food. Totally relaxed atmosphere and spot on food. Lardo has never been my favorite...ever...but I like it here.-Rick Moonen, Top Chef
“Best restaurant in LA. Period! Very knowledgeable staff will guide your entire meal. I love sitting at the bar, it becomes a communal event with all the other patrons.” – Korbin, Pretty Hurts
Bacon choco crunch good! Pork belly sandwich must have.
Always always always get the porkbelly sandwich. From there, experiment.
foie gras, biscuit & maple sausage gravy = my new favorite food
Order anything, you can't go wrong. Foie Gras Moco Loco is one of my all time favorites.
share plates. All the food is really good so share it!
I know everyone else suggested the "Pork Belly Pig" already, but I am verifying it. It is the best I could ever imagine. Bacon x 10. -- I'd fight a gang of twenty for these slider. I'd destroy them.
If you don't get the $35 foie GRAS burger you ain't shit
order the pig ear, chili, lime and fried egg. totAlly worth $9
Animal is a carnivore-centric restaurant specializing in all those good bits. Tony Bourdain tried marrow bone, chicken hearts, hamachi tostada, coconut sweetbreads, pig tails and crispy rabbit legs.
Oxtail and pulled pork belly sandwich !
Victor is the best! Get Hamachi tostada Always , pig ears and porkbelly sliders
One of the best dishes: Foie Gras Loco Moco. Yup, they put those two together.
meat meat meat! For all you meatlovers!
Eat your boyfriend's portion of the BBQ pork belly sandwiches...you won't regret it!
I have never felt more carnivorous. Get the foie gras biscuit and gravy and the BBQ pork belly if you know what's good for you.
If the Pig Tails are on the menu, get it. But always start off with the chicken liver mousse on toast. End the meal with the veal sweetbreads which they flash fry leaving the inside super creamy.
مايصلح لنا ابد
Off menu item: agedashi tofu... trust me
Definitely try the Poutine with Oxtail Gravy and cheddar!
For dessert, there’s a chocolate crunch bar topped with crumbles of Nueske bacon that sounds sort of bull-in-a-china-shop, but it actually works.
Belly Sliders, Crispy Rabbit, Petit Basque are all phenomenal. The acoustics aren't well planned, the room is extremely noisy and makes conversation difficult for any party greater than 4.
Melted petit basque and baby broccoli, pancetta, and egg are not to be missed. Order a bunch of apps and share.
Order the foie gras with a biscuit and maple sausage gravy. My favorite dish in LA
Animal has a big reputation and it is well deserved. Great vibe and food. Make sure to get the Crispy Pigs Ear and the Bone Marrow. The service is always fantastic, warm, and friendly.
Distinctive place. Casual setting, great variety of meat. Loved the chicken liver toast, the quail and the crispy duck leg! Definitely worth it. Innovative cooking method mixed with fun ingredients.
The hamachi tostada packs a wallop of flavor with slivers of jalapeño, crunchy peanuts, Thai basil and fried onion. For heartier appetites, there’s a Flintstones-size smoked turkey leg.
Better than "Son of a Gun" (sister restaurant), but not as good as "ink". Very solid foods but I'm kinda bored to see the same items as other tapas places.. But chicken liver toast was great!
Eat that poutine and feel good.
Tried and loved the Hamachi Tostada, pig ear, PIGS HEAD, and **pork belly sliders**. Skip the bacon chocolate dessert (did not like!)
get the pig ear, bone marrow, hamachi tostada, maple sausage gravy, chicken liver toast, pork belly sandwich, foie gras, bacon chocolate crunch bar!!
Sticky Toffee Pudding. To. Die. For.
Try the Pork Belly Sandwiches
Small place, but has quickly become the must go to place for chefs when they visit LA; they are doing some crazy things with meat there. The bacon chocolate bar for dessert is great!
Hamachi tostada = game changer
Tandoori octopus!! We loved it so much we got two orders!!
also, read Chef's Feed and eat everything the Chefs tell you to.
Eat the baby rabbit spring rolls, the oxtail poutine, & everything that's snout to tail greatness-not found anywhere but NYC, SF, or the travel channel. Ask for wine pairings&save room for desserts.
