Something aside from Thai off the 101 near normandie and Melrose?

Hi there, kind of a particular request.

I'm meeting a friend for lunch in about an hour and a half and she needs to meet at a place right off the freeway. The most appealing Yelp find was Prael, but if you have any other recs for a sit down but not too upscale super close to that I would be eternally grateful. I'm kind of not really craving Thai right now.

    Might be too late for you but Sqirl is at 720 N. Virgil (1 block N of Melrose and about 3 blocks E of Normandie)
    Good luck!

        Scoops, on heliotrope. Chat over cool ice creams.

          Maybe La Buca on Melrose.

              One other thought - Antequera De Oaxaca http://www.yelp.com/biz/antequera-de-...

              Is Santa Monica and Normandie too far? Arax Falafel is takeout with some tables (indoors) and is very good.
