I drive around town a lot, and sometimes I see restaurants that make me wonder, do people actually eat there? Today's case in point: Teriyaki House on First St. near Vermont. (No, not the secret, exclusive Teriyaki House on Pico -- that's a whole different animal.) I only found the name by searching the address on Google, because I don't see any signage on this place. Actually, it's not at all the least-appealing place I've seen -- I can even see how a Yelp poster said it had "a certain charm," and it got an "A" from the health dept -- but it does look kind of ramshackle and mysterious, complete with graffited windows and different colors of paint. What's the scariest-looking restaurant you've come across? If you send a photo, we'll post them all and then take a vote.
If your photo is selected as the scariest restaurant in the L.A. area, EatingLA will award at least a copy of Eat: Los Angeles, and maybe a chance to help me review a restaurant as well.
(Rules: The restaurant must be currently open for business and the photo must be one you've taken, not taken off Flickr, Yelp or another website.)
