We weren’t wowed by Konbi’s Japanese convenience store-style sandwiches (yes, the ones you’ve seen all over Instagram), but we did really enjoy the pastries at this new Echo Park hotspot. But beware – these popular pastries are not easy to get ahold of. Konbi only makes a few dozen a day, so to ensure you snag one, you want to arrive at 8:30am when they’re pulling the first batch fresh from the oven. They’re buttery, beautifully hand-laminated works of art, light as air, and deliciously warm. Definitely some of the best pastries in the city – we just wish they made more!
