This week's Strip Mall Rat is a double-header. Well, sort of. See, there's this little cluster of strip malls on Slauson, just west of Crenshaw Blvd. in South Los Angeles. Two places to eat on one side of the street, and two more places to eat on the other. One -- with a Woody's Bar-B-Que and dinky fish fry place -- is a true strip mall. There's parking, everything's connected and there's even a little pet store attached to the far end. Makes you wonder where the fish fry place gets their fish.
And across the street is Hungry Harold's, a window walk-up spot serving burgers and hot dogs that just couldn't be ignored. And then, if you're going to cross Slauson anyway, you might as well get a doughnut from Slauson Donuts.
Whew. This strip mall stuff is exhausting.More »
