Favorite spots off the 405? (West LA --> Long Beach)

I commute from West LA to Long Beach a few times a week and often times, I try to time it around lunch so I can stop somewhere along the way. The problem is that I'm starting to exhaust my "usual suspects" list of places to eat and would gladly welcome other suggestions.

Right now, I tend to hit up either:

Jasmine Market (Culver City, Washington/Culver exit)
(Tito's is right there too)

Santouka (Mar Vista, Venice exit)

In the past, I've also done:

Al Watan (Hawthorne, Rosecrans exit)

Gardena Ramen + Shinsengumi Hakata Ramen (Western exit)

The main criteria is that the food be 1) relatively fast, 2) moderately priced (or cheap!) and 3) within 5 minutes of a 405 exit. A superior taqueria is most welcome, as is any Asian ethnic places.

Thanks!
