Favorite foods served on a paper plate? [non-food truck edition]

What good eats are served on a paper from a real-live brick-and-mortar restaurant?

For me:

Tomato Pie
Gerlach's Grill

    Mom's Burgers

    And if plastic plates count, then Papa Christos.

        I was trying to remember if papa Cristos was on paper or plastic, but thanks for clearing that up.

          The Fish Grill. All locations, all of their menu. Simply yum.

          And falafel at Pitaway on Melrose. Mmm

            Pita way also gives you all you can eat salads which is really swell.

      2. Pacific Fish Center (Redondo Beach Pier)

            "Ricky's fish tacos"

            I think carts violate the spirit of the "no truck" rule... ;-D>

              Sorry. You are right. Then let me add El Burrito Jr.

              1. re: wienermobile

                I just wonder if the food tastes any different on paper, Melmac, stainless steel or fine china?

                  1. re: wienermobile

                    That reminds me of the paper I end up eating every once in a while when I don't peel it back quite far enough on my sandwich or burrito...(g) It doesn't actually have much taste, but my fiber intake is definitely enhanced when that happens.

                      Paper is also a great receptacle for cheese residue.

          2. I can't believe no one else has thrown Apple Pan into the mix yet.

              HUMBLE POTATO (if plastic baskets lined with wax paper count)
