so in the spirit of chowhoundedness (chowhoundicity?), i feel the need to reciprocate after all the great suggestions i just got for lunch in torrance tomorrow. plus, the place i want to recommend really deserves it: heidar baba on colorado, across the street from pcc.
it's a persian place, casual, really friendly, fresh and delicious. we always get the chicken-breast kebob with musto kyar (sp? cucumber yogurt) for the salad. one combo plate is just about enough for two people and costs around $10, depending what you get; comes with salad, rice and a drink. the quality ranges from good to superb, but we've never had a bad meal.
