Cafe 50’s

Ya know I really only put this here because I had a picture of it since it’s between Califnornia Roll Factory and Le Saigon.  I’ve been here a couple of times.  Pretty standard fair for a 50’s style dinner.  Burgers, fries, shakes, malts and other stuff.  They are open until 1 or 2 on Friday …

Little Saigon

I’m not sure if this is true but I’ve been told the Little Saigon has the most Vietnamese people outside of Vietnam.  It’s a great place to visit.  Especially check it out on Tet day one of the major celebrations.

Directions: A good place to start is the area near the Dragon Phoenix Palace Chinese

Johnies

Not to be confused with Johnnies.  You can’t eat here as it’s out of business.  Instead it’s rent out as a location for movies.  It’s on Wilshire Blvd near the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA).  It’s been in quite a few movies. Miracle Mile comes to mind…

Chan Dara / Chan Darette

Chan Dara is a small Thai restaurants that was introduced to me by Giant Robot magazine which described it as, the place where the waitresses look like Asian fashion models.  Of course I had to check that out and guess what, it was true.  Fortunately the food was good too.  I’m not sure if this …

Ten Ten

Ten Ten is another great place for Dim Sum.  It’s often very busy and there can be wait any day of the week.  Again weekends are the best time to go as there is more variety.  I’m not sure what hours Dim Sum is served there but I suspect it’s 11am to 2pm…

Furaibo

Furaibo is a Japanese restaurant in Micro Tokyo (see below).  They have a fairly extensive menu and it’s very much more similar to a common type of Japanese restaurant in Japan unlike most Japanese restaurants in America.…

LaSalsa

Why this place has done was well has it has it beyond me.  The place sucks!   There are like 50 of them too.  I don’t get it.  I’ve tried it like 5 times at like 3 different locations and every time I’ve hated it.  Bland tasteless dry food.  Complete crap.  Blech!  Avoid this place …

Seoul Garden

This is also a Korean BBQ.  It’s much newer looking than Picnic Garden.  It’s a toss up which is better.  Some people like one and some people prefer the other.   It’s also $8 for lunch but drinks are separate.

Directions: From the 5 take Red Hill north.  Past the 1st light on the right …

California Roll Factory & Sushi

I was pretty skeptical of this place but I was pleasantly surprised.  First I must mention that California Roll and most of the other rolls you see in a sushi restaurant in California are not Japanese.  You won’t find a California roll in Japan nor a spider roll or a rainbow roll or a caterpillar …

Yaohan (now Mitsuwa)

Yaohan is a Japanese super market.  They have stores all over the world.   Most of the Yaohan’s have other stores inside in addition to the main super market.   For example the one in Costa Mesa has 4 fast food counters, a bakery, an small appliance shop, a travel agency, a gift shop, a …
