Jumbo “Rocky Balboa” from Dan’s Super Sub

Needed something different for lunch on Saturday. I always envied my wife getting free lunch at Dan’s Super Sub in Woodland Hills when they had to work through lunch. Finally, I remembered to go there.

This hole in the wall sandwich joint is very popular as the line never disappeared while we were there. The parking is difficult but fortunately they have somebody out side to help you in and out of the tight spaces. Seating is very limited so hopefully you don’t mind eating outside if you have to. The average price is about $10 per sub but it doesn’t stop anyone from coming.

The inconveniences mention above will be overlooked once you get your amazing sub. I originally fell in love with the pastrami subs but I chose to get a Rocky Balboa, a Philly beef sub with grilled caramelized onions and provolone cheese. It was fresh and delicious. Nowadays, nobody admits their love of carbs but the bread used here is what blows me away. The bread is soft inside and out. The crust is almost unnoticeable unlike main stream sub sandwich places.

You have to check it out for yourself next time you are in the West San Fernando Valley.

Lunch at Fatburger

I’ve been having lunch at Fatburger for years now but I can’t say it is one of my favorites. I go there to get full and enjoy a true hamburger without a commercial taste to it. It gets expensive though. I got a regular 1/3 lbs burger with mushroom and swiss cheese. I added the combo with skinny fries which made everything close to $12 for a non-restaurant burger stand. Go there to make a custom burger but everything adds up quickly. I probably hit Fatburger 5 times a year. It’s good stuff but the price and unremarkable taste make it easy to wait for the next visit.

Eat up!

Lunch at Pizza Rev

We had lunch at Pizza Rev today. It has become a staple location for us to visit at least 1-2 times a month. Everyone in the family gets exactly what they want on a pizza. Having to share the same flavored pizza is a thing of the past.

Pros:
It doesn’t weigh you down like a typical greasy pizza.
More ingredient choices than your typical pizza restaurant.
Good friendly service
Made to order
Custom salads available

Cons:
It’s all starting to taste the same to me.
Cost about 30% more to eat there versus your typical Pizza Hut.
Deep dish pizzas option not available.

Lunch at Lamonica’s NY-Pizza

While Pizza Hut and Dominos offer ridiculously low prices for large pizzas and places like Pizza Rev sell you a custom made pizza for $7.99, there is a company that sticks to its guns with pizza that will make you get up and order seconds at higher prices. Lamonica’s pizza is a must have if you are in Los Angeles.

I’ve been eating at Lamonica’s New York Pizza for about 20 years now. The quality has been unchanged. Their pizza dough come from New York and personally I have never found anything to compare it with. You pick a slice of pizza and they warm it up for you in the oven. It’s amazing how reheated food never tasted this good. Biting into a slice of Lamonicas pizza gets you a crispy crackle of perfectly baked crust. That’s I why I’ve been going there for 20 years.

Dinner at Lee's Sandwiches

First time visiting this location in Van Nuys, California. It was clean and the service was friendly. Unfortunately, I found the banh mi tough tonight. I usually love eating there. I suspect that the baguette was not freshly out of the oven. Tonight was slow so probably the ovens were not fired up to replenish baguettes.

Pink’s Hot Dog Est. 1939

Took a relative out around Hollywood and stopped by Pink’s for dinner. We were so lucky that night. We parked right in front and the line was barely there.  We enjoyed it since we haven’t been there in so long. I’m personally fine with the Original Tommy’s but I’m not saying one is better than the other.
