...not including tax or possible tip.
My first thoughts are:
-- Croissant at Amandine ($1.95 takeout).
-- Four regular crunchy tacos at Del Taco (49 cents each) drenched in the del scorcho hot sauce mixed with a little of their hot salsa.
-- Two potato balls at Portos Bakery (under a buck each).
-- Ice cream sandwich at Diddy Riese (is it $1.75 now?).
-- Cinnamon roll, glazed, fried, crisp variety (current favorite is the donut shop on the N/E corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Sawtelle, $1.30).
-- Fries, well-done at Tommy's Burger ($1.90? for big order, I go to the location in Santa Monica on Pico and Lincoln -- they get the crispy right).
