* The editor of the zine Giant Robot and owner of the new Giant Robot Store in West L.A., which specializes in Asian pop culture.

Across the street is Sawtelle Kitchen, which is like Continental, Japanese-style food. They make this meatloaf, which is awesome, with something called demi-glaze sauce.
