I would appreciate recommendations to the best restaurants/dishes in west LA that you can't live without.
I prefer restaurants with lots of flavor (often ethnic) but I'm open to anything that is really good in West LA. Let me give you some examples of places that I really enjoy, so you can get a sensse of what I'm asking for. If someone had told me to stick to the following places and items a few years ago, I might have avoided a lot of poor to mediocre experiences.
Tacos Por Favor, Olympic and 14th, SM, amazing monster burritto, the best red salsa I have ever had in my life.
Pom Thai, Lincoln Blvd, SM, excellent spcify beef salad, pad see ew, green curry (actually almost everything I've had has been
Jiraffe, Broadway and 3rd(?), SM Amazing beat salad and a pasta with truffle oil that was to die for. One of the few more expensive restaurants that I really enjoy.
The pizza joint next to red mango in Westwood. Lots of sauce and crispy crust.
Father's Office, Montana Ave, SM, excellent burged and sweet potatoe fries,
Sakura, Centinella Ave, Culver City, yumy large fresh sushi, love the lobster roll, spicy and tuna.
Mr Noodle, Westwood, next to De De Reese, their beef noodle soups and panag curry are terrific.
Budda's Belly, 7475 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, excellent black cod, ahi burger and very good mojitos.
Agra India Kitchen, Lincoln Blvd, Venice, amazing chicken tickka massala. Nice staff.
Thank you to all the chowhound memebers who responded to my last post. You guys and gals are the best! Thanks to Chowhound members, I was introduced to my favoirte Mexican place in LA!
I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on other great places/dishes in west LA (I'm willing to explore about a 25 mile radius if its worth it). Tired of the same old stuff and spending good money on bad food/experiences. Thanks
