cheap eats in glendale

(First - I must apologize for posting hastily to all these old threads. I was so excited by the board that I could not control myself.)

I've lived in Glendale a few months, and I've just started looking for regular places to eat. Unfortunately, I'm a programmer at a .com, so I don't keep very regular hours. (There are outside projects as well.) It also means that I need to sometimes grab a snack late at night.

Where should I go? I'm looking for a good Korean place (that has Korean food) (BBQ or otherwise).

Is Cinnabar a bar or a restaurant?

Right now, my two favorite spots for cheap eats are Porto's Bakery (and Elian rescue headquarters -- just kidding) and Cafe Bravo.

Porto's on Brand has Cuban style sandwiches and pastries. The sandwiches don't look so large, but they're rich with butter or pork fat, and leave you stuffed and sleepy.

Bravo's up on Glenoaks and Grandview (next to the KFC) has the best chicken sandwich I've ever had. I go there whenever I have to do some work at home, and know that I'll be showing up at work after 11 AM. In fact, as I type this, I'm concting a reason to work late tomorrow morning so that I can eat an early lunch at Bravo. Their menu is the usual "Armenian", with some crosscultural mixes that are inevitable for a culture that's been displaced often.
