Picnic Garden

This is a Korean Style BBQ and it’s all you can eat.  At lunch time on a weekday it’s only 8$ and that includes soft drinks.  At a Korean BBQ you cook the food on a grill at your table.  Since this is all you can eat they’ve got bars (similar to salad bars) except …

Noodle Planet

There are two or three for these.  The one pictured above is in Westwood on Westwood Blvd.  There is another on Valley Blvd in Monterey Park just west of Garfield.  They have a ton of noodle dishes (and several non-noodle dishes) from lots of different Asian cultures.  My favorite is the Noodle Planet Pho.  It’s …

Jan’s Health Bar

This place used to be really hidden.  It was at the corner of Main and PCH in Huntington Beach INSIDE the surf shop on the corner.  If you didn’t know it was there you probably would never notice.  But, a few years ago they moved down the street to the 500 block on Main (5 …

Sushi Mon

I met a Match.com date here.  Not bad, the food and the date.  A little expensive though not for L.A. sushi but they had this one dish, which was the reason to go, which is basically tuna (or was it salmon) and tomatoes and some sauce on top of a large wanton chip.  That was …

Soot Bull Jeep: Korean BBQ place

If you are going to try Korean BBQ and you’re in LA this is the place to do it.  It’s dark and hot and full of smoke coming from the coals that you cook your own food on so expect your clothes to smell like Korean BBQ when you leave. 

It’s on 8th somewhere between …

Sam Woo in Irvine

Sam Woo has been called the best Chinese in O.C.  One indication is that the clientele is about 95 percent Chinese.  Another is that the service can be rude.   Some people say if the service isn’t rude it’s not real Chinese.  There are several Sam Woo restaurants in So.Cal.  I think there’s one in …

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.…
