Cambodian (Battambang Seafood) in San Gabriel - I've not been personally, but have been wanting to try something different too.
Our favorite ethnic is Afghani (Azeen's) in Old Pasadena. Its cuisine is similar to Indian, but worlds apart in other ways.
El Caserio (Siilverlake?) - Ecuadorian
re: Evan G
We usually get the bulanee-e-katchalu (forgive the spelling) & it's one of our favorite appetizers! It has a crisp (almost wonton wrapper like) outside and well seasoned potatoes & lamb filling. I'm pretty sure that they also have the traditional leek/scallion filling bulanee, but the huuby prefers the katchalu, so that's what we get. I also really like the yogurt sauce & the cilantro/jalapeno sauce for dipping/spreading. I've only tried Afghani at one other place (The Helmand in SF), but we prefer Azeen's!
Indonesian at Indo Cafe on 4th in Alhambra
Cambodian at New Paradise in Long Beach - Anaheim St.
Polish at Polka on Verdugo in Eagle Rock
Kazahkstanian (or however you want to spell it, I'm too lazy to look it up) on Sunset at La Brea or Highland.
African at Ngoma Restaurant on Wilshire at Detroit - West, South, East African
I wish there was some Portuguese, but there isn't.
Peruvian, lots of places, these days I'm partial to Los Balcones Del Peru on Vine just south of Sunset.
Hungarian - can't recall the names, there's a place on Melrose in Hollywood and on Ventura in Studio City
That's all I've got off the top of my head at the moment. Good luck.
