Shoreline Cafe

They are also open 24 hours.  At least the one in Belmont Shores is.  Their food isn’t as good as Harbor house but it’s usually not bad and Belmont Shores is far more interesting than the Harbor House locations.

Directions: Take the 405 north to the 7th Street exit.  On the 7th street exit there …

Claim Jumper

Claim Jumper’s claim to fame is their huge portions.  I seriously doubt most people could finish a meal there or even just dessert.  The food’s usually not bad though it’s definitely not great either.  There is almost always a wait for dinner though.

Directions: There are quite a few of these around.  Here’s one. Take …

Houston’s

Houston’s is a national chain.  The have a very small menu.  Their two specialties are (1) Their Spinach Dip which they claim was named one of the 10 best things to eat in L.A.  I agree. (2) Their ribs which they call knife and fork ribs.   These ribs are so tender you usually don’t …

Canters

What can I tell you about Canters?  It’s BIG, It’s open 24 hours.  It’s much better than Jerry’s Deli.  It’s got Jewish deli like food.  Not a bad choice for that late night dining.…

Zankou Chicken

This is a small chain and originally from LA.  There are about 7 of them so far.  They are Armenian and they make some super delicious chicken (and other stuff).  My favorite item there is the Chicken Shawarma (sp?).  If you’ve ever been to a Greek fast food place and seen the big cone of …

Tito’s Taco’s

Me and Evan and Sakura tried this place out.  It’s on the northern Washington (there are two Washingtons right there) and Sepulevda.  There is always a line.  I’m not sure why.  We tried it out and for me it seems like bad drive in movie Mexican food.  It was cheap but I personally got a …

The Hump

The Hump is some of the best Sushi / Sashimi on LA and it’s in a cool location to boot.  It’s actually at the Santa Monica Airport.  Sounds strange but it’s definitely cool.  I’ve only been here once but it was most certainly an unforgettable pleasure for my mouth.…

Peruvian place at Cerritos and Western.

There is a little hole in the wall Peruvian restaurant at the corner of Western and Cerritos.  If you’ve never tried Peruvian food (as in from Peru) I suggest you try it.  It’s pretty good and somewhat different.  One of the dishes I had there is this potato dish with this thick yellow gravy/sauce poured …

Marukai

Marukai is a store similar to Mitsuwa.  I’m not sure if they are also a chain.   As for food they have more selection than the Costa Mesa Mitsuwa and they have better prices.  They require a $10 membership but generally you’ll save more than $10 over Mitsuwa on your first trip.

They also have …

Imperial Dragon

This is a small Vietnamese restaurant in Costa Mesa. It’s definitely not bad. I’ve only been for lunch. They don’t have the catfish that the other place has but their soups are great as is their Charbroiled Pork with Rice and their Vietnamese eggrolls.

Directions: Take Bristol south.  It’s on the right just past Paularino in …
