Get it hot, get it cheap and get it fast. In operation since 1946, 20th Street has never been anything more than a modest neighborhood diner, offering such working-class fare as eggs-and-bacon plates, cheeseburgers, tuna melts, green chile breakfast burritos, noodle bowls and chicken fried rice. Yes, you read that right: This modest, neighborhood breakfast bar has a history stretching back to the days when nearby Sakura Square was the center of Asian-American culture in this city. Seventy years later, those noodle bowls and plates of fried rice are still selling. And the breakfast burrito (served all day, from open 'til close) is an institution.
