I eat breakfast at Spires in Torrance almost everyday of my life…. the ratings are not so good on Yelp but I always have a great breakfast, the waitresses are very nice and try to get you want you want even if it is off the wall. I think if you are in the area you should try Spires.

My friend Darryl who I talk about a lot took me and my friend Scott Page to this restaurant for a business lunch. Darryl knows his food and this place had a lot of great dishes. Man…. We had a Garlic Shrimp, a mixture of Scallops, vegetables and Shrimp, Fried Rice and more.
The service was a little slow but everyone was very nice. I am looking forward to going back soon.
Good Neighbor Restaurant Studio City California
For a few years my Sax Shop was located in the same shopping center so I ate at the Good Neighbor almost everyday. It has gone through several owners since then but my good friends Bette & Rick Nowinski have owned it for a long time now. They have done a great job fixing the restaurant up and expanding it to offer better service.
I till mostly have the same breakfast when I go there now since it is not that close to where I live.
Egg Beaters mixed with mushrooms and American Cheese lightly cooked, generally with burned French Fries, an English Muffin well done with extra butter and Ice Tea. NOt healthy but it sure is good …..
Introduction to Places a FatMan Eats
I am going to be starting up my original “Places a FatMan Eats” as anyone who knows me I do love to eat. I do not have a great pallet or do not look for great chefs.. I just go to different restaurants and eat. If I like it I will tell you and if I don’t I will say nothing.
My friend Darryl has been looking up restaurants and taking me out to lunch. And I swear you cannot always judge the restaurant buy it’s cover. Some do not look so good from the outside and the food is great and some look great the food is just so-so.
I hope to talk about restaurants where the food and service are good.
