    7. Good thai in Pasadena?

    I strongly recommend President Thai Cuisine at 498 S. Rosemead Blvd. (626-405-0662)

    They have recently remodeled and re-opened, I have been going there for years. It used to be just a little hole in the wall kinda place. It gets really busy on weekends so I do recommend you call befor you go. Oh and if you like your Thai food spicy don't forget to tell them you want at least a level 7. (scale 1-10). Level 5 is like an americanized version of spicy. In other words mild for people who like spicy foods.

    Tokyo Lobby? Back when I went to SC, my roommate and I had the same 2pm classes so we'd take turns with friends to be the DD, hit up their lunch special, hit a few (read: many) saki bombs, and head back before class. The good ol' days. But being so close to downtown, I usually ended up at The Frying Fish in Little Tokyo. It's that place in the village that has rolls on a conveyor belt around the sushi bar and charges you by the color of your plate. Not a necessarily cheap lunch, but you can't beat the quality.

    speaking of Little Tokyo, there's a ramen house on 2nd St called Kouraku (just south of San Pedro st) that is awesome. Very authentic (having had my share of ramen in Tokyo), cheap and they're open til 2am for late nite noodle munchies.

    +1 for Tokyo Lobby, all of their locations offer good quality food at affordable prices. Check out the oyster udon if you're into that sort of thing.

    There's a pretty good ramen place across from San Gabriel Square on Valley, I don't recall the name though.

    You know, the conveyor place on 3rd street was actually very good to my surprise, although I haven't eaten at a sushi place in LA thats better than Kitayama in Newport Beach.

    I think it's called Ajisen Ramen (or something like that)...it's in that Hilton plaza right? Havent checked it out because it appears to be owned by Chinese (given its location) and I don't like Japanese food interpreted by Chinese (or anyone else for that matter)

    Try getting sushi interpreted by a bunch of Costa Ricans. You get lettuce in your sushi. I wish I was kidding...

    I've been to some ramen places in Japan and it seems authentic at least imho.

    President Thai is decent. I personally prefer Chandra. I always missed the street by one though, everytime I went there. When you really need to tie one down though, you gotta go to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles (right beside a KFC!), although they raised prices a while back, which sort of defeats the purpose of Roscoes. Still, I am aching for a chicken and cheese omelette right now.

    Yeah, that is wierd. The best Mexican, you gotta get at a place (outdoors, open really late, don't remember the name) in East LA, or drive down to Ensenada, and eat by the docks. The tacos will put a fire under your ass too.
