A little Los Angeles history for you…

Philippe’s, known as the birthplace of French Dip sandwiches, has been around for over 100 years in Los Angeles now. The menu is fairly simple. Sandwich selection: your choice of a beef, lamb, pork, ham, or turkey sandwich, a cheese topping, and how many times you want it dipped in their special Au Jus. Go with the double dip and add their special hot mustard! Sides: potato salad, cole slaw, pickled eggs… Drinks: they basically have all the sodas and beers, but the more notable drinks are probably the $0.70 lemonade and $0.09 coffee. Desserts: wide selection of homemade pies. They also serve breakfast from 6am til 10:30am.
Expect long lines, but they move fairly quickly…
