Rice: Large Build Your Own Bowl from Sweetfin:
Poke bowls aren’t going anywhere soon, and Sweetfin serve up some of the best in the city. Top your rice bowl with a a wide range of fresh fish and housemade sauces. There’s plenty of options for your BYOB (that’s “build your own bowl” for all you poke rookies out there). So get creative and make delicious combos, like albacore, ponzu-lime sauce, ginger, kale and bamboo rice.
Noodles: Mushroom Meat Noodles from Cup O’ Joy (Bellflower & Northridge):
For some of the most mouth watering noodles in Downtown, tap into Cup O’Joy for classic Taiwanese and Chinese favorites. The mushroom meat noodles are chock full of egg noodles and delicious, juicy meat – exactly what you need on those nights when you’re craving a bit of noodly goodness. We recommend washing it down with one of their signature milk teas.
Rice: Fried Rice from Chin Chin:
If you’re a die-hard fried rice fan, you’ve hit the jackpot here. Chin Chin dishes up some of LA’s best fried rice in three different varieties, from vegetarian fried rice through to one studded with pork and scallions. To top off this delicious $5 offer, you should probably also try their famed chinese chicken salad, and there’s always room for orange chicken…
Noodles: The Fettuccine Chicken from Louise’s Trattoria (Larchmont & West LA):
Don’t forget that pasta is a form of noodle, and it’s never an easy task narrowing down your favorite saucy carb at Louise’s Trattoria, especially when there’s a baked cheese ravioli going up against a plate of slow-simmered ragu bolognese. Anyhow, our first recommendation is the fettuccine chicken. It’s a delicious plate filled with house made fettuccine, grilled chicken breast, sun-dried tomatoes and scallions tossed in a chardonnay cream sauce.
Rice: Brown Rice Bowl from Coral Tree Cafe (Brentwood & Encino):
Coral Tree Cafe has everything you need in order to be happy and healthy. Offering up organic California-style cuisine, you can score their brown rice bowl for only $5 this #FirstFridays. Expect local seasonal chopped vegetables, brown rice and natural chicken tossed with a white wine and lemon dressing. Served with a freshly baked baguette, of course,
Rice: Juicy Pork Dumplings from Mama Lu’s Dumpling House://h rice, pita, lettuce, tomatoes and choice of toppings. And obviously don’t forget the signature white sauce!
Noodles: Pad Thai from Bangkok Corner:
Pad Thai, what’s not to love? Peanuts, sprouts, rice noodles, egg, chicken – yum! We think Bangkok Corner has some of the tastiest pad thai on offer, and now you can try it for only $5. With thin rice noodles stir-fried, egg, green onion, bean sprouts and crushed peanuts, this is one affordable, satisfying and delicious staple that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Rice: Baked Crab Hand Roll from Sushi Roku:
Sushi Roku offers a range of Japanese comfort cuisine, including some truly delicious sushi. The baked crab hand roll, filled with warm crab and delicately wrapped in soy paper, is our pick of the bunch, but they’re all pretty noteworthy.
