Bound together by Hollywood Boulevard, the 101 Freeway, and Vermont Avenue is the tightly-knit neighborhood known as, Little Armenia. Named for its large population of Armenian-Americans and the number of Armenian stores and businesses that had opened in the area by the early 1970’s, “Little Armenia”, was officially dubbed as such by the City of Los Angeles in October, 2000. The neighborhood was established in the early part of the 20th century when a wave of Armenians made their way to Los Angeles, escaping genocide back at home.
Today, Little Armenia is located in the eastern section of Hollywood and is still home to a large population of Armenian-Americans, as well as businesses where you can find just about anything and everything Armenian. However, the community is much more diverse these days, reflecting the cultures of the many Latinos and Thai people who live there as well. In fact, a small section of Little Armenia is now known locally as, “Little Thailand”. Little Armenia is one of those treasure trove neighborhoods that locals and visitors alike love to explore. Some of the best places in Little Armenia include the Papillon International Bakery, House of Tacos, Narek Market, I Panini di Ambra, Bolt, Chuan Chim, Arax Falafel, Carousel, Golden Fish, and Paros. It is also the location of the first Zankou Chicken, one of the most popular fast-food joints in all of SoCal.
