I'm visiting from Boston and would love to try some local favorites. It's always easier to give suggestions when there's some criteria, so here goes:
* I'd love some inexpensive recommendations as I'm on a rather tight budget for this trip.
* I love ethnic food, Asian - esp. Vietnamese, Caribbean, Central/South American.
* Relatively healthy dining options would be preferred.
* Also, what are the best spots for some really good fish tacos?
I'm splitting my time between Sherman Oaks (near Woodman/Chandler) and Santa Monica (Wilshire / 10th) if that helps, I've also got a car.
