lunch recs in el segundo

hi, everyone! I'm moving jobs from costa mesa to el segundo. any recs for lunch there? I'm looking for healthy and good. also, any places that have a great salad bar in that area? I'm used to going to Irvine Ranch Market for food and fruit down here. oh, and I'm going to be working off the 105 just after you get off the 405. thanks in advance for all of your help!

  1. The Whole Foods Market will rock your world! It's on the corner of Sepulveda and Rosecrans. HUGE! Pricey, but a great healthy selection.

    1. Yes, if a salad bar is what you're looking for, go to the WFM on Sepulveda. Nothing else comes close in the area.

      I also like Hummus Factory and Chicken Dijon in downtown ES for not-too-bad-for-you quick lunches. If you're in the mood for a sandwich, try Rinaldi's.

      1. There's a Bristol Farms on the east side of Rosecrans.

        Also in the Manhattan Village Mall, Koo Koo Roo.

          1. re: flavasista

            For something a little more pocket friendly, we used to like Osho in Manhattan Beach on Sepulveda. They have a great Teriyaki Lunch Special and pretty decent Sushi as well...


            1. re: Dommy

              Great Tip Dommy! Osho's Lunch special is fast, friendly and very affordable around $8.00 and best of all it is mighty tasty..

          2. Not healthy, but Versailles is nearby on Sepulveda.
