Meghan Markle's favourite restaurants in LA

Cecconi's, Los Angeles

Meghan and Harry have often been spotted at world-famous Italian restaurant Cecconi's. Situated on the corner of Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard, Cecconi’s is a modern-day classic Italian restaurant serving hand-made pasta, seafood and dishes from Italy using the finest ingredients.

SUGARFISH, Los Angeles

Meghan grew up in Los Angeles, so it's no wonder the mother-of-two wants her own children to share that same experience. Before deleting her personal Instagram, Meghan often used to share photos of her food on Instagram, and there's one place in particular she loves to visit – SUGARFISH sushi restaurant.

This super popular restaurant is a regular hangout for California's A-Listers, with the likes of Justin Bieber and the Kardashians loving the famous haunt. The Duchess previously shared a photo of her fresh sushi and edamame on social media, adding the caption: "Yes, please! #theresnoplacelikehome #sushi." There are ten SUGARFISH restaurants across Los Angeles, along with another location in New York.

Fresh Corn Grill, Los Angeles

Meghan is a big fan of Fresh Corn Grill, a healthy LA eatery that says it serves a "unique take on California cuisine". Speaking to Today, Meghan said: "If you ever find yourself in LA, go to Fresh Corn Grill and order salmon tacos. It sounds a little strange at first, but trust me, they are insanely good! I dream about those tacos, and they are not paying me to say that."

Those salmon tacos will set you back $12.95 (around £9.65) with one side, or $14.45 (£10.77) with two.

Sony Pictures Studios, Los Angeles

While growing up in Los Angeles, Meghan reportedly spent a lot of time on the set of Married… with Children, where her father worked as part of the crew. The sitcom was filmed at Sony Pictures Studios, where visitors are able to take a tour and walk through the museum of iconic film and TV shows shot on the site. We're sure Archie and Lilibet will love learning about their mother's Hollywood career when they're old enough to go on the tour!

Meghan Markle's favourite bar in LA 

Comme Ca, Lose Angeles

If Meghan is in the mood for an alcoholic drink she has plenty of fabulous places to go in the city of Angels. She once revealed that she was a fan of going to Comme Ca if she was in the mood for a burger and a cocktail. The venue is currently under renovation right now, but hopefully, they'll keep Meghan's go-to cocktail on the list as she once said of the West Hollywood venue: "Great spot, great wine list, and cocktails are also wonderful. The Penicillin is a favourite of mine."
