There’s a casual little restaurant called Umai Teriyaki that’s fast becoming a favorite of Montrose locals. It’s been open less than a year, and operators Chris and Grace Jung see a steady stream of shoppers, workers, fitness enthusiasts, moms, dads and kids walk through their doors and gobble up their fresh, healthy food. It’s the kind of food you can feel good about eating every day, if you’re so inclined. The place is clean, the prices are decent, and the service is as fast as made-to-order food can be. If I were to open a restaurant, I’d do it the way Chris and Grace have — offer a limited menu of appealing items that you know you prepare well.

Eating healthy at fast-food restaurants is a formidable challenge. At some places, it's all but impossible. But, the owners of a small storefront restaurant in Burbank want to change the way customers think about fast food and offer a healthy and fresh alternative ? right from Nature's Pantry. To me, "vegetarian burger" is an oxymoron. The secret to enjoying them is not thinking of them as burgers, but as a sandwich in its own right. And at Nature's Pantry, it is. The patty is a concoction of ground nuts, brown rice, oats, fresh mushrooms, onions and seasonings.

In La Ca"ada Flintridge, the family-run Thai restaurant Min's Kitchen has graced Foothill Boulevard for decades. A recent facelift provided newly sponge-painted walls and a lighter appearance to the small dining room. The honey-colored wood tables and chairs add an elegant touch to the d├ęcor. Nearly everyone who comes in the door seems to be greeted as an old friend, so it is apparent that Min's has a loyal local following. Servers are hospitable and they're patient with menu questions, but things can get a bit slow, as there are frequently two servers for the entire restaurant, and one or both are fielding a brisk take-out business as well as tending tables.

Sometimes you have to eat quick. But the "usual suspects" of the fast-food world can leave lots to be desired, with their drive-through trans-fat, calorie-packed offerings. Teriyaki Me! in Glendale, with its made-to-order fare, offers an alternative to the burger trap. Billed as a gourmet Asian grill, the menu offers skewers, stir-fries and yakisoba, with no steam tables or heat lamps in sight. Most of the kitchen is in view in this tiny place. As you place your order, you can see the saute guy hit the pan with a thin stream of oil to start cooking your meal.

Think of Eat Well as a diner with a difference. Your typical diner has a certain vibe ? kind-a retro, kind-a cool. Eat Well's got that. The leatherette booths, the gumball machine, stools at the counter, the vinyl-coated menus ? Eat Well's got those, too. So what's the difference? Well, the logo hints at it. "Eat Well, 'cause your mama told you to." If your mama was into soy and whole grains, she'd be delighted that you're eating well here. Along with the burgers and blue plate specials, the menu features lots of granola, tofu and vegetarian options.

Tep Thai in Glendale is a visual feast, as well as a treat for the palate. The stylish interior features polished concrete, high ceilings with teak beams and gleaming mirrors, making the small space feel bright and comfortable. Pendant lamps and retro upholstery fabrics add whimsical flair. Weighty cutlery and attractive porcelain dishes in varied shapes add to the upscale feel. While take-out is available, I prefer to dine in, taking advantage of the ambience. Service is very attentive (during one lunch visit, my beverage glass was topped up at least six times)

East meets West meets Continental at Wrap Express, the latest addition to the cluster of quick eateries across from Glendale City College. The name implies fast food, but the culinary output is actually more sophisticated. The prices, while not rock bottom, are within a student's budget and the portions, if you choose wisely, will keep you full through that 3-hour bio lab. Owner Ruben Zograbyan was born in Armenia and honed his restaurant management skills in Switzerland, France and Russia.

If you check out the new Moore's Delicatessen, at Third and Orange Grove in Burbank, in the space formerly occupied by Ben's Deli, don't plan to hang out long. You order at the counter, and they deliver your meal to your table. The day I was there, a group of four women in business attire ditched the place because they wanted full-table service. "I don't do self-serve," said one. It was their loss. The food is top quality. It arrives fast. And it doesn't disappoint. After all, what deli is really known for its fantastic service?
