Miso Paste - How do I use it

I like to use it as a spread on sandwiches. miso, tahani, avocado, sprouts, tomato, arulgula. heavenly.

Chimichangas

I was just reading the Wiki page on chimichangas and I have a few questions.

Are they tradionally made veggie?

If so where can I get a good one?

5$ lunch in hollywood

inspired by the 5$ lunch in pasadenda thread:

what about 5$- i mean only 5, in the hollywood/melrose/weho area.

when i lived in San Francisco i could eat mexican, italian, chinese, indian, almost any cuisine for 5 $ OR UNDER.

in LA, i'm kinda missing that.
is it possible or do i not know the right places?

M-Cafe Chaya, what does anyone have to report?

for sides: i love the french lentils and the kale. some of the best flavors out there. the madras tempeh wrap is incredible for a cold sandwich. the BBQ seiten is amazing for a hot one. and the bo bim bop is great too. avoid the salads. their too expensive for what you get.

sad news about Nicky D's pizza in Silverlake

i ordered pizza from there once, about 3 months ago. it was all floppy and greasy. unedible. it sat in my kitchen for two hours before i threw the whole thing in the trash. i'd never done anything like that before. absolutly disgusting.
