West Hollywood Cheap Good Eats

Psiweaver Jun 17, 2007 11:39 PM

Hey guys,

I'm looking for good cheaper under $40 for two eats in the West Hollywood area. I'm up for any kind of food. Just toss me some suggestions.

    Beverly Falafel at 3rd & La Cienega across from the Bev. Center. Love that place! They fry fresh falafel in a large, traditional style fryer right in front of you. All the other usual fare too: kefta, chicken kabobs, shawarma, etc.. Order at the counter, no waiters, small. Not a place to take a "date", but more like the kind of place where you go to grab good inexpensive food with the established s/o. :)

      I went to Beverly Falafel once a couple of years ago. I was disappointed by the less than generous size of the falafel sandwich(C'mon! It's falafel, not prime rib or Langer's pastrami) for almost a five dollar bill. I admit it tasted good, but I left the place hungry and never went back. With Cafe Noura and Eat A Pita gone, I've been going to this place on Sunset just west of San Vicente and The Whiskey for decent falafel and schwarma. Can't think of the name right now.

        Hollywood Pita. Try the chicken kabob in their homemade Lafa wrap. Really good. Everything else is pretty good as well.

            I believe they are just re-modeling.

          There is an excellent Indian place in the mall on Santa Monica by Gardner.

            I like Los Tacos (i think that's the name; i haven't been in a couple of years), a mexican place on santa monica blvd a few blocks west of fairfax in a strip mall next to a carwash.
            There's also a small Russian grocery store next to the Whole Foods that sells these really tasty frozen ground beef dumplings.
            They're great heated up in a vegetable soup, if you are the type that makes and enjoys soup.

              I think the best for the cheapest is Poquito Mas on the Strip. You can get a single, though generous sized taco with rice, beans and chips and fresh salsa bar for three dollars and change.
