Unfortunately, not all three subjects at the same time; I had three things to say, and decided to say them at once.
1. Aside from Canter's and the multitude of bizarre eateries in San Gabriel, what are some good restaurants that are open around the clock? Right now, I usually rely on taquerias. I would sell my own mother for a really good all-night diner near Pasadena.
2. Empanada's Place, on Sawtell Ave at Venice Blvd in Carson City, is rapidly becoming one of my favorite places; I have volunteered to go to LAX from Pasadena 5 times in the past few months just to stop there and purchase a few Arabe Empanadas.
3. Back to questions; I owe someone about $100, and I want to pay him in one meal. Any recommendations or warnings as to where we should head?
