What is good and interesting in and around Culver City?
Where are the finds in Culver City?
For Mexican, definitely get a cemita from the truck on Venice Blvd. that usually parks east of the 405.
Pepe's Tacos (hole-in-the-wall) has a really good braised short-rib (costillas) and fresh juice. I've tried most of the other taquerias in this Centinela/Inglewood area and it's my favorite.
Of course there's Sorrento's Italian market for great Italian bread, sandwiches, local-ish (Tulare Co.) produce.

re: cant talk...eating
Had a couple cemitas on saturday at the Cemitas Poblanas lunch truck parked in front of the Smart & Final on Venice Blvd. Had the Milanesa chicken as well as the "queso de puerco" - the head cheese - and both were great. I never thought I'd eat head cheese but the customer in front of me said it was one of her favorites. Nice toasty buns, lots of guac, and the deep salsa roja make this truck's sandwiches truly delicious.
Maybe not what you're looking for, but I've always been a fan of Versailles. Garlic chicken and fried plantains as a garnish! Yummy!
Gloria's on Venice Blvd has good to great Salvadoran and Mexican dishes. Their pork and beef dinner entrees, soups, and tamales are their strengths.
