Culver City updates, especially sushi, Thai or vegetarian?

susancinsf | Sep 14, 2006 06:15 AM

My daughter, a UCLA transfer student, just found her LA place to live, in Culver City (a compromise between what she wanted to spend and how far she was willing to drive to school. As it turns out, there is apparently pretty good bus service from her area to the campus)....

anyway, it will soon be time to start figuring out how to maximize my business trips to that lovely campus, so that I can combine them with dinners out. I'd like to impress her by knowing more about her new neighborhood than she does!

Here is the most recent thread I found:

any more recent updates or suggestions? She loves Italian, sushi and Thai food, has been eating mostly seafood and vegetarian options lately (diary is fine), and doesn't drink . Looking for both places that suit a student budget and the occaisonal splurge in case I do manage to get down there on a per diem...and for the splurge cases, a good wine by the glass list would be appreciated (for Mom!). She isn't big on Mexican food, but I am...

Coffee Houses, markets, specialty food shops, especially for Middle Eastern ingredients, would also be appreciated...Thanks for any leads!
