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 …

Tommy’s

Tommy’s is somewhat famous in Los Angeles.  They’ve become a small chain and there are a couple in O.C.  They make chili burgers and they are some of the greasiest things you’ll ever eat.  They are extremely delicious but you can only eat them about once every 2 months because they are so greasy.  Tommy’s …

Johnnies

I don’t know what to say about Johnnies.  I was just driving around and I saw this.  It’s on Sepulevda south between the two Washingtons.  The claim famous French Dip and Pastrami sandwiches.  I tried it out and it was pretty good.  It’s a small place but it looks like it either gets very crowed …

Hodori Restaurant: The 24 hour Korean place

It’s surprising how few 24 places there are on Los Angeles considering it is Los Angeles, one of the biggest cities int he world.  But there are a few.  This is a great one because the food is great and cheap.  It’s on the Southwest corner of Vermont and Olympic.  If you go any time …

Natraj

This is an awesome Indian restaurant in Laguna Beach.  The best part is that on weekdays they have an all you can eat buffet for lunch.  It’s a must try!  My friend Tom’s favorite dish is the Chicken Tika Marsala.  It’s not usually served during the buffet though sometimes you can get lucky.

Directions: Natraj …
