Summer Savings! – Los Angeles Magazine’s Top 25 Cheap Eats

LA Magazine's cheap eats
Los Angeles Magazine has published their list of the 25 best bargains around town. The list covers a fairly wide radius, as well as broad spectrum of cuisines. And it’s quite interesting that almost everything is ethnic – speaks to this sprawling, colorful ethno-patchwork of a city, I guess.

And because I am too cheap to go and buy the magazine in the store, I must thank that sassy li’l Lindsay for putting the list up at LAist. Just to keep myself busy and out of trouble last night, I re-organized the list by region, and switched some of Lindsay’s original links (which went to that cyberplace I shall not name *wink*) and have linked all the addresses to maps.

And as if my silly little projects here at work aren’t enough to keep me busy, as well as all my personal culinary/dining projects, I’m going to try to make my way to each of these to check them out myself. Okay, maybe not the Thai places, though. I don’t know why I keep inflicting these projects upon myself, and have yet to complete my Sawtelle Stripsearch, and now Summer in Italy via San Vicente, so we’ll see how far I get. I’m sure I could hit everything on the Westside within a week, and I’ve already been to Fassica. One down, 24 to go!

Oh yeah, and if you wanna play, too…well hey, I love having partners in crime. Tell me which dishes to get, which restaurants Los Angeles Magazine must have been high when visiting, and other cheap eats that should have been included.
