There are those special things in certain restaurants, trucks, etc that you just have to have sometimes. Today it's a hot Santa Ana and I had to have the chicken noodle soup with the wide noodles from Saffron. Yes, I was sweating while eating it, but it was GLORIOUS!
What are some of your SD cravings?
Pho from Saigon. Yeah, Josh, I know it's not up to your standards ; )
Carne Asada Burritos, mostly from a 'bertos- not up to Kare Raisu standards. Or anyone else's.
Chorizo con huevo from Cuatros Milpas, not up to DD standards.
Mary's donuts. Everybody likes them!
Grab 'n Go Italian Village Special without peps
Chicken Pot Pie from Waters
Lamb Doner from Kabab Shop, yes I know about the place around the corner.

An oldie- don't even know if they have it anymore: Chicken in clay pot from Laurel's heyday
