Looking for a restaurant far away

SusieGirl7 | Sep 7, 2011 10:08 PM

Trying to get ideas for a good, cheap, exciting place far from the Westside. Not cheating on anyone, just want to try a place far from home.

Cost: $60 for 2 people or less, not including drinks.

Location: Echo Park, Downtown, Pasadena, South Bay, maybe the SF Valley or SG Valley, not Orange County.

Food wise, I want a place where a pescarian (fish/seafood eating vegetarian) will have more than one option. Cuisines I'm not interested in: Indian, pizza, Middle Eastern (unless the vegetarian mezze will blow my mind), bbq, Italian, sushi (like it but can get it close by), diner/American (though I recall liking Fred 62) or purely vegetarian/vegan/salad places. I like most Asian cuisines. Am neutral on Mexican or Central American food.

What I really want to try is a place that's exciting with good food. Somewhat unique would also be great. Don't care about decor or service. Dives are fine. This would be on a weekend afternoon if that matters.

Far away restaurants that I've been to: various Indian in Artesia and Renu Nakorn.

Thank you
