where to eat: along or just off wilshire blvd, from sm to dtwn

On the not about food board, someone posted asking about visiting LA and not renting a car. Among other arguments for a car being a must, people contended that a visitor would miss many chow-worthy locations. Now granted, you can't get everywhere on the bus and the LA public transportation system could be a heck of a lot better but I think that a tourist/first time visitor staying in sunny Santa Monica, reasonably near Wilshire blvd, can easily get to lots of chow-worthy sites simply by jumping on the new Rapid bus [the red one] that cruises up and down Wilshire Blvd. And frankly, the LA traffic can be quite intimidating for visitors.

So the question is, what chow-worthy places can you come up with for a tourist within three blocks north or south of Wilshire blvd?

Barely thinking I've come up with:
VIP Harbour Seafood
El Polla Inka
Noodle Planet
Ambala [ok, more like 4 blocks]
Sunnin ["]
Spago [well, some people really like it]
Woo Lao Oak
Mom's Hand [koreatown food court]
BCD Tofu
