Animal Restaurant Los Angeles – Don’t Take Your Vegan Friends Here

Animal Restaurant Los Angeles

Last week I went out for my birthday with some friends to Animal in Los Angeles. It’s located on Fairfax in the Mid-City district of LA. I don’t consider myself a foodie but I judge my food on whether I am happy at the end of the meal. I went with two of my oldest friends and we ordered eight dishes to share with some wine and champagne. A lot of chefs come here to eat on their days off and it’s somewhat of a hot spot even though it’s been open for a while. As we were getting seated, the mayor of LA, Eric Garcetti, had just finished dining. Reservations weren’t difficult so I was quite pleased.

Animal, just as the name says, serves all parts of the animal. There are a few vegetable dishes and desserts on the menu as well. The menu the night we went had chicken liver toast, pig tails, pig head, bone marrow, beef heart, veal brains, veal tongue, sweetbreads, rabbit legs. I wouldn’t suggest this place to a vegan haha. I would definitely go back and I was more impressed that I heard Tupac and Outkast while I was eating. Thumbs up Animal!



  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
