Good, inexpensive recs around the Sunset Strip - is this possible?

Radical347 Aug 26, 2010 05:40 PM

We are headed to the Sunset Strip Music Festival this weekend and am looking for recommendations for good restaurants around Sunset/Santa Monica/La Cienega/etc. Am looking for inexpensive (around $10-ish, no more than $20 per main) but it doesn't have to be anything fancy. Any cuisine is fine - Japanese, Korean, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, etc.

    Pinches Tacos immediately comes to mind. Joe's Pizza, The Den are some other options.

            For good Italian food on the Strip, try Amarone Kitchen & Wine. It's some of the most under-rated pastas in LA.

                  Forgot to mention.....if you plan to eat around 5-7, check out BLT Happy Hour - "5 at 5." 5 appetizers and 5 drinks at 5pm. On the menu the last time I went (but it may change): Yummy sliders, mac & cheese, short rib grilled cheese, mussels, sweet potato french fries. Plus they have free snacks on the bar - olives, popcorn & nuts.
