Continental Gourmet Market

Continental Gourmet Market, on Prairie Avenue in Hawthorne, had the honor of hosting Food Network star Alton Brown, who rode across the country on a motorbike to sample their famed empanadas. They are crafted with Latin American spices, ingredients, and recipes unlike their Mexican counterparts, and they keep hungry consumers coming back for more.


What could be more satisfying than a hot cup of Latin American coffee and a couple of sweet, toasty churros on an empty stomach? Azucanela is a hybrid of a coffee shop, bakery, and traditional café. It is decked out with original Latin American decor, giving it a funky celebratory vibe that you would not find anywhere else.

Al Watan Halal Restaurant

Al Watan Halal Restaurant, situated on Inglewood Avenue in Hawthorne, is one of the area’s most prominent Middle Eastern eateries. Kabobs, tiki masala, Naan bread, and tandoori dishes are among the traditional entrées on the menu. On some days of the week, Al Watan has popular specialties, such as lamb pulao, which is generally offered only on Fridays, making it a fantastic time to visit for those searching for something especially special.

Cafe Cuba & Cakes

Internationally influenced restaurants abound throughout Southwest Los Angeles County, with Cuban and Latin American cuisine being among the most popular.
