Cheap Eats - Downtown LA

dtud | Oct 19, 2008 01:53 PM

will be downtown fairly often over the next year with a group of people and we're trying to compile a "to do" list of places to eat on a lunch budget ($5-15 pp give or take a few bucks). we can go anywhere around downtown and places accessible by subway or short drive (but would prefer not to drive). so far, this is my contribution to the list.

any comments, additions, advice to skip (or advice on must orders) much appreciated.
