NomNoms: Lemon Tree Cafe (Los Angeles)

I remember eating at Lemon Tree Cafe maybe 10 years ago. It apparently came under new management since then. There was a new sign and the decor seemed unfamiliar. When I arrived, the place was completely empty, but the waiter was very eager to please and the food was surprisingly good and affordable. It got a little more crowded after a while, but no more than three tables were in use. It makes me depressed a lot of the times to see cute mom and pop places struggling and across the street, there will be lines out the door at In N Out or Chipotle. (Not that there is anything wrong with those places per se.)

Little dishes - broccoli, radish, roasted potatoes, fish pancakes, and kimchi
