Several stand out strip mall restaurants, in one man's view:

 

Chego, from Roy Choi. In Chinatown.

 

 

Chego is not a destination for health food. But if you’re in the mood for beer-battered “ooey gooey fries,” covered in melted Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses and topped with chiles, get moving. I tried some of my friends’ food, getting a taste of Tiny’s Prime Rib Rice Plate (diced prime rib served over white rice), the Chubby Belly Pork Belly Bowl (with pork belly, kochujang-lacquered kurobuta rice and fried egg) and the Beefy T Bowl (diced prime rib over hot chili fried rice)

 

Petit Trois, on Highland at the south end of Hollywood.

 

 

If you’re in the mood for ridiculously rich French food, Petit Trois is ideal. You enter a narrow room and sit at one of the counters on either side. I was happy to take a place on the side with the open kitchen, getting a view of the chefs in action and talking to them while they worked

 

 

Trois Familia (churro French toast),  Baroo (no sign, next to a laundry), Papilles (ultracreamy potatoes), and Trois Mec. That last one is disguised as a pizza place and the sign has the pizza place's name on it.

 

Half the places mentioned are from a single restaurant group  (Dotolo-Shook-Lefebevre).

If anyone saw Veep on Sunday, the Lucas Museum is shaped like the proposed Presidential Library that they were going to build for Julia Louis Dreyfus (which looked like a vagina or Vagi-brary as she called it) :)
