  1. Adam--Do you and your girlfriend prefer any types of food or have any that you don't like? Are you talking about cheap eats?

        If you'll go to Fredo's, go a little farther east and go to Tops to try the Kobe burger. Rosemead Blvd and Michillinda.

        Zankou-I think people should try it once. Pasadena on Colorado, but they have one in Burbank too.

        Oinkster-Fries, must get the fries.
        Eagle Rock on Colorado Blvd.

        1. Almost forgot, Lucky Boy on Arroyo Parkway for a breakfast burrito.

          Marston's on Walnut Avenue for awesome french toast.

          Green Street Cafe for good Diane salad and zucchini bread.

          My Taco-Highland Park on York Blvd between avenue 64 and Figueroa for a great potato taco and sopes.

          Can you tell I'm hungry and it's past dinner time for me.

          1. Central Park is one of my favorite newish lunch/dinner spots, and walking distance from the PHS buildings - it's on Fair Oaks just a block north from Del Mar, facing the park (hence the name). One of the best bar burgers around, and the sand dabs and the flatiron steak are killer. Get the potato gratin instead of the mashed potatoes. Fries are good too. And welcome to a great Humane Society! We're active with their fund-raising group.
