Best Eats: Equestria LA edition


With EQLA around the corner, I thought it would be nice to let you all in about the best places around that isn't the overpriced resort area. Sure, you have the garden walk but what's the point of going to the cheesecake factory everyday. What we have here is the best of the best that the area has to offer.

Before we start, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. In Southern California: Car is king. Most of these places you will have to get a car, or at least an uber or lyft. Public transportation is not worth the two bucks it charges per ride.

  1. One thing to remember is that low end does not equal bad or unsafe. It may mean that there may be less portions or that the flavor will not be as intense.

  1. If you are craving something in the middle of the night or at two in the morning after a night of binge drinking, there are a few food places nearby that are open 24 hours. Subway, Denny's, and Ihop are within distance, affordable, and open when you are. If you have a car, McDonald's and Jack in the box are your 24 hour drive through destinations. Most other fast food places close around midnight or 1 am.

With that said: Here we go!


High End: UMAMI Burgers

Two words. FUCKING. GO.


Its expensive, but good. Plus, they serve beer so whatever you like to drink with your high priced burger it will probably be there. If you want local made in Anaheim beer, right next door is the Anaheim Brewery, but their tasting room has limited hours so time it accordingly


Low End: Ted's Burgers

Not only does it serve burgers, fries, onion rings, and all that fun stuff, they also serve breakfast and Mexican food. It has it all with a low price.


Its a bit away, but worth it in price.


“The tasty elephant in the room.”

Good, affordable, and you can't resist the urge to have the fries or the burger animal style. You love it. It loves you. Not only that, it has bible verses in the sodas and wrappers, a perfect christian symbol for a christian image board.



Take your pick

Let’s be honest here, both of these choices are pricey, but are completely worth it. Difference is how far you are willing to travel and which one’s menu looks like a winner.

Tulsa rib is a local company, and is cheaper than Lucille's, but not by much. Portions are good at least.

Like In-N-Out, it is a California tradition, with restaurants all over the state and in both Arizona and Nevada. If you can afford it and are from out of the state, I highly recommend it because its as close to real southern style BBQ this side of the Rockies




High End: Ho-Toys

I'm not kidding about the name, either.


This is more high end, its around 12 bucks for a three item combo without a drink. What it lacks in cheap it makes up for in portions.


I highly recommend the BBQ pork, especially with sweet and sour sauce as a dip.

Low End: First China Kitchen

Again, you get cheap, you pay cheap, but at least it tastes like Chinese Food.

No discussion, no debate, or else i will fite u. It is worth the price, within walking distance, and has more to it than Pizza and Wings (it has it anyway if you are into that sort of thing.)




High End: Maki Sushi

It cost more than Tokyo Teriyaki but it has more choices and the ever important alcohol. Highly recommend the popcorn lobster roll, which is pictured.



Low End: Tokyo Teriyaki

Cheap, not a whole lot of options, but it is delicious. This place says “you can have good sushi, and for cheap without getting food poisoning.”

Honorable Mention: MOS #2

It looks like a dive from the outside, but the food is amazing. Most you are going to spend for one person is around ten to twelve dollars with the average being 8. Its not sushi, but I have no where else to put it in.




Lets be honest: There are more Mexican food places than Starbucks in southern California, even if you don't factor in poser Mexican food like taco bell, Del Taco, or every white girls favorite, chipotle.

But this place stands out as being one of the better ones.

Taco Boy

Looks like a dive, tastes better than chain restaurants. 'Nuff said.

Street Tacos

Here's a crazy idea: grab some friends, and drive around the neighborhoods and streets until you run into one of these

Trust me, you wont regret it.


Unanimous Choice : Boiling Crab

Here is the concept of this place: Order a pound of shellfish, add in spices and flavoring, add in enhancers like potatoes, mussel, sausage, corn, and more, dump all of it into a durable plastic bag, and plop it on a table. That is the concept of another popular California eatery.

And there you have it, the best of for The resort area without going to the resort area.

  2. that guy can't be chelis, he needs like 300 pounds more on him

    he looks like the guy chelis ate for lunch

    1. Speaking of sodium, how is all that salt going?

    2. you should probably ask chelis, there's enough salt and fat up there to fell an elephant

    3. >le chelis is fat meme XDXDXD

      retarded the first time, retarded now.
      Do you forget how fat this fandom is anyway?

    4. gb2hugchan chelis

    5. >le chelis is fat meme XDXDXD

      Chelis is not a meme, he's a wetback.

    6. >chelis has a obsessed hater
      >capper has a obsessed hater
      Who else in Horse News has one?

    7. Obsessed haters are obviously a rite of passage in HN. We can now call Chelis a full-fledged Horse Fucker.

    8. ^^^ Chelis pls.

    9. giving the attention whore what he wants will make him balloon up like that blueberry girl in willy wonka

      why do you think he's gotten so big already

    10. Lauren Faust is going to be there in an interview with Larson. Someone tell this woman it's her fault for creating another Furry fandom 2.0.

  3. "Trust me, you won't regret it" You mean other than your spinchter later in the evening and your roomates who'll have to put up with the smell (unless they like it, then more power to them).

    1. They like it? Did you room with Animated James before?

  4. No one thinks it's nepotism for chelis to recommend his dad's taco cart?

  5. That's all well and good, but what if I'm too autistic to ever deviate from my routine, and literally all I can eat when traveling to other places is different variants of bread? You got a place that does good bread? Because I'm not venturing out of this basement if you don't.
