It's hard to imagine something in Inglewood more iconic than the Randy's Donuts donut. It's so iconic that it appeared in a Marvel movie.

However, the food scene in Inglewood is much bigger than a donut. The amount of great restaurants grows every year.

Inglewood's large assortment of excellent restaurants has given birth to many iconic menu items.

Here are three of Inglewood's most iconic restaurant dishes.

The Serving Spoon's Cornbread

The Serving Spoon has been an Inglewood staple for over thirty years. The Serving Spoon is a diner that serves all the Southern Classics. Their fried chicken and waffles are among the many must-try options on the menu.

It's impossible to talk about The Serving Spoon without talking about its cornbread. Their cornbread is buttered, toasted, and served with a packet of honey. It's a complimentary part of every main course.
