Need fun, inexpensive ethnic restaurant on Westside/South Bay for party of 8

chloecat Dec 2, 2011 03:13 PM

I'm part of a gourmet cooking group who have decided to try out some of the inexpensive ethnic restaurants in LA. We like to try out unusual dishes and cuisines, or just restaurants that do a really good job with the food! A few are on limited budgets now, so if it can be under $30 per person for food, that would be great.

        You can eat very well at Tara's in WLA/Palms for about half of your $30/person budget.

                Hey Chloe,

                I suggest Monte Alban. It's inexpensive and on the west side. The interior is colorful, clean, and charming and the Oaxacan menu is pretty extensive. There's a great yellow mole amongst others.

                This place would definitely suffice as a hidden gem.
