LUCKY STRIKE HOLLYWOOD?

Yes they serve food there. Typical generic food like burgers and sandwiches.

What is the definitive Socal food experience?

Never been to the Alhambra one but I hear from friends that it is inferior to the Garden Grove one.

And I hear you on Lee's. I know it's not the best Vietnamese sandwich, but the interor and service there is light years ahead of all other banh mi places. I think that is what makes it unique.

Thank you for all your suggestions. Keep them coming!

Roscoes, how could I forget about that place?

I think a visit to the Ivy is a possibility. I've never been, so what is the menu like there? Prices? How difficult is it to get a table?

Someone asked where we go for Vietnamese food in Westminster. I'm thinking Brodard's for their BBQ pork spring rolls. Boiling crab for their Whole Shabang sauce. (Show her Di Vang 3 too while we are there ;P). Maybe Lee's Sandwiches? I think all three places are pretty unique for Vietnamese food.

Anaheim/Central OC Eats

Any hole in the wall Mexican food place that's name ends in a "os" like Alertos, Albertos, Alejuandros.

Felix Cafe in Orange Circle. Good cheap Cuban food.

I'll add more as soon as I think of them.

What is the definitive Socal food experience?

Hi, this is my first post here. I thought this would be a very common question so I used the Search function first to no avail. Let me explain my situation.

I have a friend from Australian visiting Socal for the very first time. She's been to NY and other big cities in the states, but I want her to try stuff here that she won't find anywhere else. We're staying in the San Gabriel Valley area, but we will be visiting all the touristy stuff in LA like Santa Monica, the Grove, Hollywood, etc.

Here's some things I came up with so far:

Local chain places ex. In N Out, Wahoo's, Rubios

Ghetto mexican food aka Albertos, Alertos, ___tos, i.e. California Burrito

Portos Cuban sandwiches

Zankou's Chicken

Chinese food in Alhambra, San Gabriel area

Boba from Tapioca, Lollicup

Yogurt from Pinkberries or Yogurtland

Pinks Hotdogs

Vietnamese food in Westminster

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Where else can we go? I left off any fine dining places, but recommend me a place or two that is iconic in Socal. Oh and we're going to Las Vegas too.

Thanks!
