  WHAT’S LIVING IN Ladera Heights LIKE?

Perched on a hill with commanding views of LA, Ladera Heights is an affluent, diverse residential neighborhood. Coupled with adjacent neighborhoods, it makes up one or the largest areas of wealthy African-Americans in the United States. 

You'll primarily find single-family homes around, though there are some apartments and condos. There are plenty of mid-century architectural homes here, giving away the neighborhoods development in the 1950s and 1960s and you'll still find .

Since it's mostly residential, you'll have slim pickings when it comes to shopping, dining, or nightlife. 

Ladera Heights is bordered on the north by Culver City and Baldwin Hills, on the east by Baldwin Hills and View Park-Windsor Hills, on the south by Inglewood, and on the west by Culver City.

Dogfathers
Dogfathers 4925 W SLAUSON AVE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90056 MAP

The Dogfathers catering truck offers a little bit of everything. They can offer you delicious hot dogs, mouth watering carne asada tacos and burritos, breakfast burritos, hot wings, chili cheese fries and much much more.

Mama Joan’s Soul Food
Mama Joan’s Soul Food 5496 W CENTINELA AVE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90045 MAP

Here, the fried chicken comes with skin so crisp and thin and perfect it will have you swearing off the heavily breaded kind forever. In a city where most soul food is served from steam trays, Mama Joan’s is a welcome change, cooking fried chicken and smothered pork chops and meatloaf to order, along with obviously made-from-scratch classic sides such as collards, succotash and mac and cheese.
