I need to get back into blogging what to do around LA. I always just tend to share on my instagram in the moment, but I know that tons of you aren’t LA locals, but may want to figure out where to go when you visit LA (aka not the Hollywood Walk of Fame). Anyways, enough of the rant…DTLA’s Grand Central Market has been adding a lot of fun new vendors, including PBJ.LA. They opened a few months back and I knew I had to try their reimagined peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. The best part? They’re crustless. So yes, a fancy uncrustable.
They have various types of sandwiches, all with high quality nut butters and artisanal jams. The word nut butter really makes me cringe…but it is what it is. They’re all housemade and organic as well. They have both classic and reimagined flavors, including savory options like The Italian (Toasted pine nut butter with sage, basil cherry tomato jam, arugula, EVOO, balsamic).
I’m a basic bitch and just got something simple: The Old School ($5) with Strawberry Jam (Peanut Butter, Strawberry or Grape Jam).
They also have drinks, including various flavored almond milks and some purple potato chips on the side.
I liked the sandwich, but it’s honestly not much different from an actual uncrustable, besides being organic & fresh, the taste is essentially the same. But, I always think it’s worth a try!
