Seeking unique LA food experience on the Westside

phoenikia | Aug 12, 2008 02:00 PM

I'll be staying on the Westside in September, and I'd love to hear about any can't miss/shouldn't miss restaurants.

I'm not really interested in the food invented in LA like Cobb Salads and Shirley Temples.I'm more interested in what's good and unique/special to LA right now. On my last trip, I ended up at Clementine (where I ordered badly), and the restaurant at the Getty Center (which I loved).

Not particularly interested in Chinese/Korean/Japanese/Thai/Italian/French/Greek/Ethiopian/prime rib/hot dogs/hamburgers/thin crust pizza since I have plenty of those options where I live.

Would be most interested in hearing about seafood, Armenian, Persian, Mexican, Mexicali or SoCal options. Or something you find innovative/contemporary that you think reflects LA's best.

So far, I have Mashti Malone's on my list since I didn't make it there on my last trip.

In some previous posts, I read about Senor Fish's scallop burrito and would love to try something like that. I realize Senor Fish has a location downtown in Little Tokyo, as well as some locations on the Eastside. Are there any other places serving good scallop burritos that are located on the Westside?

TIA for any of your suggestions or comments!
