Lovebirds for the best sandwiches in the city (or world), lunch buffet at Tibetan House isn't bad (think it's like $9) and it's definitely a change of pace, lunch at the Oak Tree Inn (Chinese) in South Pas is cheaper than hell for what it is, Get Smart knows some Mexican joint for tacos over on Green close to PCC. I still swear by Saladang Song. It's reasonable for lunch (around $10) and not much more for dinner. Great date spot. Manny's Pizza is nothing all that special but their Pastrami pizza is legit. Damn. And of course, who could forget Doña Rosa. I think it's one of the best "quick" Mexican places in LA. Pie'n'Burger for burgers...and pie. I think it's a bit tricky because while the stuff is super simple, before you know it your tab is like $15. Fries and a slice of pie add up but I think a plain burger around $5.

Thanks a ton. Oak Tree Inn has been one of my favorites ever. I've eaten there every year the week before my birthday for the last 10 years.

That list is not exactly a true "best of" because I had to kind of edit for your criteria, however, if you haven't been to Firefly yet for weekend brunch, you're missing out. I can't say enough about it. Oak Tree is a fucking bargain. I've been eating there for nearly 20 years and I think during that time it's gone from $5 incl tax/tip for lunch to $7 incl tax/tip. Ridiculous.

Late night's easy. You either go to a diner in los feliz or you go to a taco truck in echo park/eagle rock. done.

Green Street Tacqueria on, duh, Green St, right near the Playhouse (i think it's on corner of Green and Oak Knoll) has some killer tacos. It's cash only and a bit on the higher side ($2/taco) but it's really good and they make their own tortilla which is what takes it past a King Taco a pretty good deli in the area is Vince's Deli over by Huntington Memorial, in the Vons Plaza. And while you're there Zushi about 40 feet from Vince's is my fave local sushi place. It's small as hell inside (seats maybe 12) so dont go with a large party, but they have good unique rolls and the price is cheaper than someplace like Sushi Roku, which has a similar menu Oak Tree is ok (but havent been in years), my favorite chinese is still Panda Inn (the restaurant that spawned Panda Express) over in the east side of Pasadena on Foothill near Rosemead. Been eating there since 1975 and it's my bar for chinese food. Always full of gringos, you wont see a chinese person in there, which is good because "authentic" chinese food fucking sucks ass. But if you like eating beaks, feet, and ass, then there are plenty of "authentic" places in Monterey Park that smell like vomit inside. There's a new place opening in Hastings Ranch (across from Panda Inn), near Robins BBQ, in September called Stonefire Grill. It's advert is "a restaurant for soccer moms by soccer moms" and while that may be horrifying sounding, it's basically BBQ and pizza at cheap as hell prices. All the yelp reviews on its current locations have been 4 star average so I'll be checking it out when it opens. For local pizza, by far the best reviewed and best tasting imo is Bollini's Pizza in Monterey Park. It's on Garfield, just north of the 60 fwy. It's an easy drive to get to from Pasadena/SGV and this place is great. The owner, Chris Bollini, used to cook at some high end LA spots and decided to open his own place as a pizzeria. He apprenticed in Naples for a couple years making pizza in their style and brought back a wood burning over that actually burns wood and uses no gas. Pretty damn awesome pizza, could be argued best in SoCal. They have odd hours, closed 2-5 and on sunday. For dessert, Fosselman's in Alhambra has killer ice cream. And there's the aforementioned Porto's in Glendale for pastries. Kelvin, in little Tokyo go to Kouraku on 2nd just south of San Pedro. They are open til 2am and have a great bowl of ramen. You can get a ramen/gyoza/rice set for $10

actually South Pas has some good eating for such a small town Whodini likes Firefly which I havent been to but I'm sure it rocks The Fair Oaks Pharmacy for ice cream and old school sodas. Food is good as well on their limited menu Busters coffee and ice cream, just down the road but another good spot for dessert/coffee Gus's BBQ, probably the best Q anywhere in the area Mama's Pizza, next to Bristol Farm at the 110 onramp. Good solid NYC pizza, our local go-to if we're not doing Bollini's Oak Tree Inn, as mentioned for Chinese Shiro, right near Fair Oaks Pharmacy. for high end dining, a great place if you're in the mood to spend a few dollars. Barkley's on Huntington/Fremont, old school steak house, like a relic from 50s. the kind of place Sinatra could have eaten at There's a sandwich shop near Busters called Munch Company. A decent enough local deli with a bunch of grumpy old ladies working there which rules

oh my god, you guys are fkn awesome. I'm going to the farmer's market on 3rd st. today to grab some ice cream, fruit etc. Fosselman's is right on the list for the next ice cream place, aswell as that parlor you were talking about. Kourako today most likely. Need a change from bcd tofu house. (Beef bulgogi is pretty good there ) if you guys are into Shabu Shabu, Caifornia Shabu in Costa Mesa is top notch. If you are into spicy food, there's a little dropper that they bring out and they give you one drop of some liquid. there's a small diner type place called Apollo's Burger $5.95 for a bacon cheeseburger combo with the orange bang drink. The steak sandwich is also delicious. This is one of my usual go-to places for a quick lunch Ramen in O.C. = Santouka. It's inside Mitsuwa, a japanese supermarket. There's some cool stuff in the store to check out aswell. The sign is in japanese but there should be some pics of what the booth looks like on yelp Beste wings I've ever had: easily Buffalo Wild Wings. Mango Habanero may be the best flavor in the world. tues and weds are b/w 50-60 cents a piece. I drive up to Chino Hills to eat this all the time, but they are opening more spots near us Mama D's in Costa Mesa is supposed to be very good for italian. The atmosphere was great, a bustling restaurant and the customer service is some of the best I've ever had. I didn't like it that much but some of my friends swear by it so.. C&O Trattoria in Santa Monica is one of my favorites for Italian. Bread ballllllls i'll chime in with more soon. I need to compile this shit and make a pasadena bucket list tooch: getoutttaheeaaaa. JK chicago then ny is next. sandwich world touur!!! edit: 1975 jason!?!?! i was born in 89 holy

Shinsen Gumi Hakata Ramen is still my favorite. Though, they only have one soup so if you don't like that then you're out of luck.
