We recently had the opportunity to go to Humble Potato in Westchester. Eric, the owner, loves to use basic ingredients to whip up wholesome, palatable creations that are heavily influenced by his childhood in Japan and Indonesia.
Tub’s is one of those places you can’t help but root for. They’re making the best of their not-spectacular location by churning out some of the best damn chili in town and if you call ahead, you can pull up behind their place, honk your horn, and they’ll come right out and bring you some.
That’s right, they will bring great chili to your car if you pull up in the alley in the back.
It’s all pretty damn tasty, but you’ll wanna be gettin’ some cornbread involved. The Chili Shooter, a cornbread chili-bowl filled with any one of their great chilis and topped with melted cheese is a must, especially as it’s only $3.50. Hell, you should probably just order a few of those and do a chili flight. The Chili Dingo is also pretty fantastic—a chili dog on a cornbread bun. Yep. It’s pretty much as good as you’re imagining right now. The only thing Drew and I differed on was the vegan chili; Drew could not be swayed by its charms, but I thought it was delicious.
Places like Tub’s are the reason LA Foodie exists. Finding little mom & pop places that are just doing their damndest to get their awesome food to the masses so they can make a living doing what they love… that’s what we’re all about.
These guys just love chili. If you’ve been hankering for a bowl of warm, long-simmered comfort delivered in a moist cornbread shell, get the hell over here. This place is worth the drive.
Guys, we’ve all been to In-N-Out. There’s probably one within walking distance from where you live. It tastes good. It’s consistent. We didn’t want to go to just any In-N-Out, so we went to probably the coolest one.
“They’re all the same!” you say. We say they aren’t. After dark, this In-N-Out is super cool because there are airplanes practically landing on top of you. Is it worth it to come out here just for the planes? That’s up to you. It’s pretty cool, but most people would probably prefer to go to the In-N-Out by their house. You’ll end up here eventually, though. We all head out here to pick up friends from the airport sometime or another. If you find yourself out here one evening, it’s worth lingering around.
Let’s face it. There’s not much in El Segundo for good drive thrus. There is, however, one that stands out and is pretty unique.We liked the spicy chicken.
The gyoza and chicken katsu were also good, but need to be eaten warm. Once they start to cool off they aren’t so good. For those of you who are gyoza purists, you may not be too happy with the extra crispy style served here. This is the longest we’ve had to wait by a long shot. To be fair, the food isn’t premade, and there is a good bit of prep involved for this food. Worth a trip if you are in the area!
If you’re a Pasadena-bound vegetarian, this is the place for you. This once again does fall into the cagegory of cool neighborhood joints, so you’re not going to go too far out of your way to eat here.
There must be a high concentration of vegans and vegetarians that can support a place like this. Everything that we had was pretty good. The fries were good and the mata burrito was good! The nuggets and the peanut butter shake were also worth mentioning. Overall, pretty good!
The pastrami burger was really good; it is definitely the best thing on the menu. The chili cheese fries: also tasty. They used shredded cheese and there weren’t pools of grease like some of the other places we’ve tried.
It’s another neighborhood-type joint; the building doesn’t really have anything unique about it. However, this one merits a bit further of a drive as it’s really pretty tasty here! It’s pretty sloppy, though, so you may not want to eat it until you get home.
