Family of mine are going to be in LA for the week. Husband and I have eaten our way x-country and love cheap and good food. Our territory will be:
Hollywood, West Hollywood, Universal area, Santa Monica, and Malibu.
So, chowhounds, which are your top five-ten favorite cheapeats (excluding hotdogs), for these areas please? Diners and dives great. Chinese, sushi, and Thai, yes, please. Mexican, always.
Don't put yourself out and list addresses, I'll look those up, but if you feel compelled to add a brief description of your fave restaurant's best offerings/top plates/dishes, that would really appreciated.
I'll check in later, going for a hike. Have a great day.
Peace, and thanks in advance,
