        Bonus points if you get the Tikka Masala from the Al Noor across the street and dip your burger/fries into it.

      2. From LAX you'll be going south on Sepulveda. In about 3 miles you'll come to a huge shopping complex with a Whole Foods and all sorts of eateries. There's a seafood grill, a vegi-grill etc,etc. check it out on Google Maps.

              You're coming from NY and you're scared of Inglewood? What part of NY, Westchester county?

                Is lukshen coming from NY?? Doesn't say. Lucky to get out of the cold. Flossie's sounds good to me.

              2. Not sure how quick you need but if you have time for something more than just fast food, Coni's Seafood on Imperial East of Sepulveda would be a great choice foodwise, at least if you like Mexican seafood.

                Somewhat quicker, there are Valentino's Pizza on Sepulveda in El Segundo just South of the airport and a few good sandwich places all within a few blocks of each other on Main Street in El Segundo: Big Mike's Philly Steaks and Subs, Havana, Original Rinaldi's.

                The locations for food trucks often varies with the day so no consistent recommendation there. You can check the website Roaming Hunger for some of that day's local foodtruck locations.

                  if you end up going to coni'seafood, i'd recommend ordering one of the camarones dishes.
                  keep in mind, deliecious as it is, this is not the sort of stuff that you can eat in the car while you're driving. sit down and eat the food there.

                  the pescado zarandeado, imho, their piece de resistance, will require too much time to prepare to meet your time constraints.

                2. Is Flossie's to far out of the way?

                    Flossie's? I have no clue, we're driving to w 237th st in Torrance.

                      Not at all. Flossie's is on Redondo Beach Blvd just a few blocks east of the 405.

                      Also the Marukai Market on Artesia has Ramen Menya Iroha
