Really great Malaysian food! Plus, it's cheap, fast, and the atmosphere is pretty pleasant.
Probably the absolute worst service I've ever received from an auto dealership. Total jerks. They didn't even really fix what was broken.
Really good Chinese food (coming from a Chinese person). Funky, Venice Beach setting.
Awesome hip shoe store if you are into Puma, Fila, Adidas, etnies, etc.
One of Wolfgang Puck's restaurants - very good food and is pretty reasonable.
Really good quality sushi for the price. My favorite in Japantown.
Best sushi in LA (even if it's a hole in the wall). Don't order California rolls - he kicked someone out once for this.
Great food, very hip. Reasonably priced. Sort of crowded on the weekends.
Funky diner with interesting food (Hunka Hunka Burnin Love Pancakes)
Really great movie theater. Very impressive ambience / interior. Good date place.
