LA Times released their list of Los Angeles good bargain for foodies. Everything from one dollar tacos to pre-fix meals for less.
It's not exactly "cheap" eats, but you'll get more bang for your bucks for good food all over town.
I just wish they release one for the OC as well.
P.S. LA Times also reported that Thomas Keller is to open Bouchon bistro in Beverly Hills. Someday, I will eat there. Hopefully not a replacement for one thing on my list of things to do before I die, to have a meal at the French Laundry...hopefully on the night that Chef Keller is there.
