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 $3 Breakfast in Culver City, and @theGastrobus. Today we obsess...

Going Metro is cheap (a one way ticket is $1.50; a day pass $5.00.) But it's not just a lift to work, or a bulky designated driver. It's your way to some great food that doesn't happen to cost too much.

We've Chowed The Red Line before (it was good,) and now, it's time do so the same on The Purple Line.

The Purple Line is thought of being the one train that runs through Koreatown. It's that and more, crossing three distinct areas: Koreatown, MacArthur Park, and Downtown Los Angeles. That means culinary options with serious range. Of course, The Purple Line is LAist's latest Recession Obsession.
