Thank you chowhounds for your great suggestions. Living on a teacher's salary, I can't afford to be a regular at Urusawa and Totoraku, but I've gotten a lot of great suggestions from here. Since finding this site, I've added some restaurants to my list of favorites:

The Tulsa Rib Company
101 Noodle Express (I go here way too often.)
Tacos Baja Ensenada
Golden Bird Fried Chicken at Porky's (Can't eat any other now.)
Pie n Burger
Mashti Malone's (Because of chowhounders, I created an ice cream tasting menu as a church community-building function.)
Banh Cuon Tay Ho ( must eat every few weeks)
Chantilly Patisserie

Favorites (and still favorites) list before this site:

Shin sen gumi (noodles are great, yakitori bar excellent, sumo food (chanko) is awesome)
Sushi Gen
Uncle Robby's
Happy Family Vegetarian
Gaja (My favorite Japanese restaurant, bar none)
Musha (Girlfriend loves this one a bit too much. For her, smaller portions, more tasty than Gaja)
Dumpling House
Da Pilla's
Yong Su San
Young Dong Tofu House
JJ Bakery ( try the strawberry or mango "western-style" mochi)
Super Bowl Thai (Place where all my senior citizen relatives ask to eat.)
Nha Hang Van (best banh xeo in Southern California)
Vietnam House (anyone want to go...none of my friends like it and girlfriend despises it, but I love this place.)

Based on Chowhound suggestions, I can't wait to try out the following:
Jin Jiang (In the minority, I believe that the best XLB for the value is at Kuan's.)
Daikokuya (line is too long every time I go)
Coccole Laboratorio del Gusto

Girlfriend doesn't like me coming onto the site. We've both gained 10 pounds a piece since trying all of your great suggestions.

Any others?
