Looking to experience AMAZING food on a budget. Does Spago or the like have relatively cheap options/opportunities? I know Echigo (far from the best but just an example) has $20 lunch special. I hear Kiriko has a cheap lunch special as well. Not just looking for sushi, but for anything delish.
How can I experience or sample THE BEST PLACES without breaking the bank?
Thanks in advance for any ideas. I live on the Westside, so recs around here are preferred.
