    Tried out Son of a Gun yesterday. The fried chicken sandwich was really good, so was the shrimp toast. Also had Hiramasa (raw yellowtail) with mojo de ajo, red onion and sunchoke.

    ive always been a fan of Hole Mole, a long beach chain, for fish tacos. mainly because its so close to school and fish tacos are $1 after 7pm

    ate at Cafe Brasil on Venice. Just had their lunch special...any particular standouts there? I liked the food today though, very homey....got some of the hot sauce and the hot peppers mix...great stuff. I've had the Fejoda a long time ago but didn't really dig it plus it was $16 for a single serving, which was a bit pricy for what it was. [​IMG]

    I'll agree with this one. The Cachetada is pretty damn delicious. I went there once when the fish taco guy (Ricky, I believe) was there also but he was sold out :/

    the one in the farmer's market is not bad (bobs?). not really a doughnut expert but they have them available, with a nice selection and its across the street.

    Quality has gone down over the past few years. I usually stop by for a Long John and the custard's been sour 8/10 times, resulting in stomach issues and rancid pooping later. I don't know why I still try, but maybe in the hopes they'll turn it around and return to their deliciousness from a time apparently gone.

    There's also a Yum's at Vine & Melrose or Beverly, depends on if you like chain donuts or not. I'm sure there's a Winchell's or three. I don't think it's too far, but ET's on Crenshaw & Venice is fun.
