A Recession Obsession is, 1) a meal so great that it sticks in your mind long after digestion's end, and, 2) plays nice with your sensitive wallet. Is there a better place than Los Angeles to eat a wide variety of amazing food that so happens to be inexpensive? Probably not. We're as lucky as we are well fed. We last obsessed over Sky's Gourmet Tacos, and had Valley Costa Rican. Today, we obsess...

Los Angeles gets a lot of crap for the cuisines in which we don’t specialize. (I label such shittalkers: enemies.)

Do we have an amazing pizzeria on every corner? Ha. Good one. Can you find amazing Chinese food in Hollywood? Again, nope. You’ll have to venture east. Does our selection of Indian food rival that of Mumbai (don’t say Bombay?) Again, not exactly. (Stop all the whiny questions please!)

But when it comes to Indian, I am now satisfied, and cracking a half-smile just thinking about it. That’s thanks to a new fast-but-not-too-fast-food joint its owner called the “Indian Subway.” I’m not sure if that’s fitting, but you definitely won’t run into Jared eating a five dollar foot long. But you might run into me eating an $8 lunch/dinner special.

Its all-vegetarian food’s amazing, and rather convenient; Culver City’s Bawarchi is LAist’s latest Recession Obsession.
