Sushi places that will make rice-less rolls [moved from General Chowhounding Topics board]

Believe it or not there is a very nice small sushi joint in Burbank called Sushi Dake. It sits next to an aquarium and fish store (irony avoidance moment here.) It is located at 1722 West Verdugo, in a mini mall. My wife, a carb avoider, loves their "love Roll" which has all kinds of fish, not unlike a rainbow roll, but has the California roll filling instead of rice. It used to be bigger, but it is still a great deal and worth checking out.

Jersey-style Italian Hero (AKA Sub)

I'm a grad of Ridgewood High in Jersey and miss Brothers up in Midland park...

but I always enjoy the subs at Monte Carlo on Magnolia in Burbank. Fresh, cheap and piled. Wuth a cold beer, I'm back in my element, waiting for someone to say, "What're you looking at - you got a problem?"

Sebastian's Toluca Lake? Anyone tried?

Sorry to say, the menu is pretty cool, but the servers could care less and we will never go back.

Lunch in Burbank tomorrow

Riverside cafe is a family run place with a very eclectic menu (lamb pita sandwiches, shepherd's pie, cog au van) and amazing homemade soups. You can sit outside on a nice day and watch the horses walk by.

The Sandwich Cubano (RIP Encino Cha Cha Cha)

Try Guantanamera in Burbank at Victory across from Costco in a small mall with a check cashing joint and a MacDonalds.

The room is great, the sandwiches crisp and the mojitos strong and true.

Pair with the garlic fries and then walk the whloe event off at Costco.

greasy spoons in the san fernando valley

My kids and I love (I say that because my wife hates this place and makes us go without her) anyway we love Tom's Burgers on Burbank Bl at Cahuenga.

The place is a clean Mexican family run version of the classic American diner.

The burgers are juicy and wrapped in yellow paper, the fries thin and crisp, and perfect when covered with chili and cheese, and the chorizo eggs are the best this gringo has ever had.

They even have those "Gyros" things that are sliced from a mound prepared by a shop in Chicago and served all over the country.

Love Tom's which is one of a chain af around ten.

Scared of awful Burbank restaurants....

Chadaka Thai rocks.

Great room, service and especially the curries.

Also the best dump in town is Yaki Bowl on Alameda at Lake. The chicken on fire bowl rocks.
