Many time reader, First time poster.
Just moved from Florida, prior to that Manhattan and prior to that Australia.
Gotta say the food in the US is Malto Buono! (italian for very good!) Especially the buffets. In Florida, Cici's For under $5 for pizza, pasta, salad and cinnabons style rolls AYCE can't be beat.
I like the Indian restaurants dotted here and there for $7-9 ayce is very nice too and ofcourse the sushi/Japanese ayce places like Todai or Onami for about $13-16. For burgers, etc the Universal Studios $18 (10% disc online) all day ayce is pretty nice too for a day of feasting.
What I would like some help on please is a list of AYCE restaurants under $20 between say culver city to Marina Del Rey to Malibu to Sherman Oaks to Studio City to Pasadena, etc if you get the idea...
Much appreciated and may complete satiation bring you enduring joy (remember to go to the gym too).
