This thread is about Los Angeles, the people in it... and most importantly, which restaurant around LA is the best in each category.

My favorite place for burritos has got to be El Tepeyac in City Terrace where you can get the Manuel's special...big giant burrito that can feed a family of 4.

I live here, in the Echo Park area specifically.

I'm up for any kind of meetup if I'm free that day/night.

Also, that shot of the 110 running through downtown would be more accurate with the cars at a standstill.

Saying "I live in LA" usually means you don't live in LA proper so it's fine :P I'm in Alhambra which is just east of east LA.

Actually this part of LA is like more Chinatown than probably anywhere else in the U.S.

If I had a time machine, I would go back and tell the LA city planners to make every freeway twice as wide.

No, four lanes on each side will not do for the freeway that passes through downtown. It will not do at all.

Not sure. I just did an image search for "405 traffic".

Seriously. What is it like 5 lanes plus the entrance lane and carpool lane? Makes going to Disneyland a breeze, once past the 91.
