Pie and Burger South Pasadena
Nick's on spring street north of chinatown -- great ham and eggs
I also remember a diner on Santa Fe avenue in Vernon, close to the stench of Farmer John's abbatoir, but I can't remember the name....it's rich and real, where the vernon grandees collect to trade stock tips before they go back to boss around the foremen of their respective light manufacturing enterprises

la abeja in cypress park

TV cafe on olympic and figueroa for the pancakes and menudo...and the decor

Where to get EGG CREAM?

I love sammy romanian's, but in LA, Langer's does a great egg cream.

Bertha's Soul Food Cafe

Bertha's is really good and the people that run the place are so very friendly. Great Greens, and the fish is outrageous. I personally didn't like the gumbo all that much. It's only available on Saturdays, I think, maybe Sundays too, and while pricey, there's enough bits of meat to feed a bunch. But still...it's a little too greasy. Try it on rice, if you must, but if you like Gumbo, Harold and Belle's has better gumbo -- 2920 W Jefferson Blvd, just west of Crenshaw

Where to Eat in Torrance?

These are great choices, but slightly expensive -- I was looking for a great cheap find....that's not japanese (I love it, but it's for a picky party)

Any good restuarants? All I can seem to find are chains and that weird "Hawaiian" place.
