Eating cheaply along the Expo Line with the 99 Cent Chef

Billy Vasquez, who blogs as the 99 Cent Chef, lives within walking distance of the new Expo Line route. He offers a night-and-day culinary guide updated with this week's extension into Culver City.

This is not a typical boring travelogue, but a feast for the eyes in which The 99 Cent Chef pulls out all the f-stops!...

From my home in the Village Green, I can walk to L.A.'s latest transportation option, the Expo Line - so now my visitors can ride along with the Chintziest of Commuters to get a cheap-eyed view.
