Not sugary pickled ginger

Where can I buy some pickled ginger that's not overly sweet? Last jar I bought at Mitsuwa was awful. Can you recommend a brand?

Late night dinner date on Westside?

Interesting. I live about 100 yds. from Gaby's and somehow missed the beer sales. I'm a regular at that liquor store though :/.

It's actually very trendy but they don't sell booze.

Gaby's on Venice/Mentone is open late and very trendy. Get some booze at the liquor store next door.

Transplanted from LA looking for Best Cheap Eats in Irvine: aka save me from the irvine corp.

I used to visit Irvine on the weekends. I remember the the Korean plaza (it has an H-Mart) was pretty good. The coffee shop over there, 85C, is interesting.

Gigantic mate selection.

I usually buy mate from Camaguey Market on Venice. Yesterday I noticed that I could turn around and find another shelf of mate that I had been missing. It was great.

Where to buy sushi-grade fish?

I tried International Marine once in the early morning but they would not let us in. We walked down to LA Fish Co and got some of the best tuna I've ever had. It helps to have a Japanese speaker with you.

As a side note, park near the fish market or else you'll be wandering skid row with a cooler full of expensive seafood. Doing that makes you a jerk.

Best Pakistani?

Recently discovered Zamzam Halal market on Washington near Sepulveda (11028 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232) and love it. The problem is that they are only open on weekends and I've already had all 3 menu items many times. Does anyone want to suggest more Pakastani places?

Where to find cheap groceries in West LA?

Palms!

Payless Produce on Venice right now: 6lbs of oranges for $1, apricots 2lbs $1,
Palms Market on Motor, about the same prices but with tacos and pupusas in the back.
Many assorted Indian markets along Venice also have cheap produce.
