What are the best eateries within a 20 minute drive (one way) of century city at lunchtime, when it always takes longer to get somewhere than it ought to? Any kind of food, but particularly, food that would be hard to replicate outside of Los Angeles... Sort of a tour of the best of LA, if you will.
Cheapish -- looking to stay about $10, give or take.
Parking -- easy to average
Solo diner friendly, or have the option to take away without losing much of the food's flavor.
Have done Clementine and up and down the Sawtelle Strip. Thank you!
