Lunch near Loyola Marymount?

Going there for a seminar. Thanks.

  1. If Thai sounds good, Ayara Thai is one of the best places near LMU, I think. It's down Manchester a ways, but not too far if you have 1.5 hrs. If less than that, it'll be tight. You'll need a car.

    A link with details:

    1. KC's Crepes. You might even be able to walk to it. It's on the east side of Lincoln, just about 1 block south of LMU. Tonz of choice, quick service, outdoor as well as indoor seating. Pizza style crepes are interesting. If you're not counting calories, go for a cream soda too!

      If not, Bristol Farms which is about 2 blocks South on Lincoln has a cafe. I haven't eaten there but have heard good things about it.

      If you do go on Manchester, there is a Panera Bread in a strip mall next to Trader Joes on Sepulveda. No entrance on Sepulveda though. I like their Chicken and wild rice soup, paninis and greek salad. Baked goodies, tea and coffee as well.

      1. Tower Pizza on Lincoln. The pizza is only OK but the burger is very good. You can get it with a hot link ala "The Shack." The fries are MUCH better.

        The steak sandwich is tasty. I get it with grilled onions and american cheese only. Add a little mustard, salt and peeper and yumm.

        I like their spaghetti. Although it is nothing special I find it quite tasty. I'm sure I'll hear about this one.

        You can substitute a small salad for the fries if you like.

        1. Define "near"? I have two words for you: Tito's Tacos.

          1. There's an Italian place on Lincoln the name of which escapes me but it has a good garlicky olive oil and good bread to get you going. I wish the name would come to me.

              imho the raw chopped garlic in oil that overwhelms the ok bread is the best thing that they offer.
              after your tastebuds are wrecked by several cloves worth of chopped raw garlic, you don't care as much about the rest of the food because you can't really taste it.
