Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza in Los Angeles? Oh, Hells Yes!

There is a world of cuisine outside of Figueroa fast food, Viztango, and Malibu Subs. I know that the busy slump sucks and the lure of cheap, quick food is hard to resist. Venturing further away from campus involves temporal, monetary, and logistical constraints. Luckily, with proper planning, you can beat these obstacles and get to eating some delicious ass food.

Masa - Echo Park Bakery & Cafe boasts a relatively large menu, but is known for their Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza. A large pizza easily feeds four people, and at a rate of $22+ for a large, you can leave well fed for about $7. Or, if you're only in a twosome, get a small pizza and you'll still achieve some serious expanding of your waistband. Deep dish pizza takes about an hour to make, so they welcome you to phone in your order beforehand. I also highly recommend their garlic bread, salads, and desserts. You can BYOB with no corkage fee, so make it a classy night and bring along some two-buck chuck.

Now you're wondering how the hell you're going to get there. (This map I made shows you how close the bus stop, the restaurant, and the Echo are to each other.) Well, it just so happens that 200 Metro Bus goes directly from USC to Echo Park, whence you will get off at Sunset and only walk a few short blocks East to get there.
