The Official Recession has blanketed us for nearly eighteen official months. For the last seven of those shallow-pocketed months, LAist has brought you the weekly Recession Obsession series. We've looked at a some fun things to do, but the focus has been on eating.

Is there a better place than Los Angeles to eat a wide variety of amazing food that happens to be wallet-friendly? Probably not. Our sprawling urbanopolis' diversity is to thank for that. We're both lucky and well fed. This stuff isn't simply "cheap eats" either. These are places we went to when times were good too. It just so happens the price is even more right today.
