Metro foodies continue to fill in the blanks on the Go Metro Dining Map

The Go Metro Dining Map – featured without shame on our sidebar – continues to grow as you, our Metro readers, riders and diners share your suggestions for great meals along the lines.

A couple great tips came in over the weekend, and for a nice change of pace they’re recommendations that you’ll need to hop on a bus to get to.

First up is an L.A. institution, The Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax. Reader Ciacci says of it, “If you love food or history or celebrity spotting and you’re in the Los Angeles area, you must go to Farmer’s Market. It includes all of the above, with delicious food from all around the planet (you will NOT go hungry).” And what do you know, it’s accessible by five Metro bus lines (16, 217, 218, 316 and 720) and the LADOT DASH.

Vicente A. digs deep into L.A.’s collection of ethnic eateries (and deep into the San Fernando Valley) to suggest Springbok South African Bar & Grill, located steps away from the Orange Line Woodley Station. What’s exactly is served at Springbok? According to Vicente, “A great mix of South African food (Indian curry, Biltong, boerewors, peri peri, etc) and burgers/fries/salads. Plus a full bar and sports games (rugby, soccer, etc) on big screens.”

We’re eager for more suggestions so send in your recommendations for lunch, dinner, late night munchies… whatever. Check out the Go Metro Dining Map (click the icon on the sidebar) and fill out the quick form — it’s the best way to get us the info or emails us at Write RESTAURANT in the topic field and please include a sentence or two about why you recommend a particular restaurant.
