We're seeing a play in Culver City tomorrow evening (near Surfas) and I'm coming up dry on suggestions for cheap and delicious. The only place I can come up with that strikes the balance is Johnnie's, but that's a no-go.
Simpang Asia sounds promising... have read about it for years but have never been there. I might be able to persuade the group into getting a cemita from the truck near the 405/venice overpass, but more often than not the truck isn't there when I want them to be.
