Cheap Eats in LA?

emmaramma | May 17, 2007 06:41 PM

So my first post ever was about sushi. I quickly realized that all this time I was living in blissful ignorance. Urasawa? What is that? Quickly turned into, "Ohhh, looks lovely but perhaps after I save a bit..."

Once a professional but now a full-time student (i.e. zero cashflow). Sadly, my tastebuds cannot unlearn what little they know (b/c what little they know has at times felt like love to them and how can they say goodbye to that? : P). Need to ration out sushi nights. But what to do in the meantime?

Living-off-savings-and-student-loans type people unite! Let's share with each other what awesome cheap eats sustain us.

I'll start! (^_^)

1) Tito's Tacos (Culver City) - taco ($1.20), meat and bean burrito ($2.40), and the salsa (yum!)
2) Daily Wok (Gardena) - pho ($4.25), spring rolls ($2.25)
3) Ralphs (Marina Del Rey) - salmon and avocado sushi rolls ($6.25)
4) Whole Foods (Westwood) - milano panini ($6.99)
