Top Five L.A. Sandwiches?

Brent's - Corned Beef Reuben (love their corned beef more than anyplace)
Phillipe's - Roast Beef double dipped, with a marinated hard boiled egg ¢5 Coffee.
The Hungry Cat - The Pub Burger, is mind blowingly good
Victor's Deli - Makes a pretty good Reuben, and I used to get turkey sandwiches with lettuce, avacado and italian dressing that were fantastic, and so much meat you could take half home and have a huge sandwich the next day.
Dos Arbolitos - The Pit BBQ Torta is pretty good, though probably not in the top 5, but I am not thinking of anyplace else right now.

Missed 2012 San Gabriel Valley Chinese Restaurant Opening

This has nothing to do with the old Go Go Cafe in San Gabriel does it? Used to be in the plaza with Ranch 99 and the big Sam Woo.

Best Burger in LA?

I can't believe I hadn't had a Pug Burger at the hungry cat until last year. Wow, that was a delicious burger. Blew Father's Office out fo the water for me!

Dumpling House in Temple City is closing

Wen there today not realizing it was closed! Miss those onion pancakes and the cucumber! Been to Din Tai Fung, but didn't like it as well. What is a good alternative to Dumpling House? They were one of my favorites?!?!??!?!

Dine LA best choices?

I was really unimpressed with the LA bourbon after going to the Las Vegas one, so I don't recommend that. Plus it iasi loud, and was shoot when I was there.

My favorite is the Hungry Cat in Hollywood.

Buying a house in North Hills, what is good to eat there?

I have heard of Bear Pit from a friend who has not been in ages. And will have to check out Matt & Tony's. Thanks.

Finally Tried Hiro's and enjoyed it, though I am allergic to tomatoes, so the tomatoe salad on the sandwich is not my favorite (even if it tastes good), but the roast beef was fantastic as was the bread.

The BBQ is fantastic, but I didn't really look too deeply into the rest of the food on the menu, though it looked good. I plan on going back for the BBQ a 3rd time, so...

I always like the sweet corn ones, which are the first I try. Also tried some desert ones.

This place is not the best, in fact id doesn't touch the Tamale Maiden at the Hollywood Farmer's Market, but for convenience and location it is worth checking out.

Tried Weilers and it had great service, but I felt the Reuben couldn't touch the one at Brents.

Still searching around the area trying to find places.

We have been going to GOOD PHO YOU for Pho and Boba, and Frozen Yogurt.

Caruso's Cucina Italiana on Roscoe has some amazing BBQ. Damn it was tasty, and I love their BBQ sauce.

And we are regulars are Brent's. Damn their Corned Beef Reuben is amazing!

Was recommended Hiro Sandwiches, but have not gone since it is not open on Sundays (when my wife and I usually go out).

Where to buy Kaffir Limes

I have thought about it, but we have had back luck with trees at our house so far. Our lemon tree does not look like it is going to make it.

Yea the one in North Hollywood always has them. And if they are not out, just ask and they will get your more.

Damn I love their flavor, and it has hints of Sichuan Peppercorns. Yummy!

Zankou Chicken....TERRIBLE

I always like the Hollywood for the whole chickens. So moist and delicious, but they only take Cash.

Moving to the Valley, what's good?- Sherman Oaks/Van Nuys

Oh yea, have to try Brent's. Just amazing. Love their Corned Beef!

Szechuan hot pot in SGV - recommendations?

Lugi is delicious, and fiery hot. Let the tofu in the hot pot sit and by the end of the meal it is like pieces of magma!

How about Mon Land Hot Pot on Bencamp Street. Not as good as Mon Land, but pretty tasty.

The Best Deli in LA

Yea, I have to go for Brent's for best Deli.

Awesome service and great food.

And the best Corned Beef. Damn I love their reubens.

Also some delicious desserts!

And I love the choice of all different kinds of fries. I love the fat fries, but my wife loves the sweet potato ones.

Kaffir lime leaves, galangal on the Westside?

Went there today, and they did not have any. Darn it! Really wanted to make Tom Yum Soup tonight!

Any place in the valley that has them? I am actually in North Hills.

the best SANDWICH in (Los Angeles) period.

Yes, I moved to North Hills recently, and have to say I think Brent's has the best Reuben in LA. I prefer corned beef to Pastrami, though I do love their Black Pastrami Reuben, and their corned beef Reuben I find to be easily the best in the city. And the service is awesome. Sure you have to wait or a table, but the waitresses are so friendly and my ice tea gets constantly refilled.

Zankou Chicken....TERRIBLE

I have loved Zankou for years, especially the Hollywood location. Sure it has gotten a bit more expensive, but to me the quality has been the same since I have been going there, since 1996 or so.

I love to get a whole chicken and a falafel plate and extra pickles, and make sandwiches with all the ingredients, slathering on the garlic, tahini and hummus. I have also found the chickens to be moist and succulent, and have always enjoyed the experience greatly.

Also used to go to the Burbank one, which I didn't like as well, but found it excellent for a decent, though not cheap lunch. I did find the chicken a bit more dry in Burbank, but still found with the addition of the garlic sauce that it made for tasty lunches.

In search of the perfect Reuben...

I recently had Brent's as well, and was blown away.

I usually like Corned beef Rebuen's, but tried the Black Pastrami and it was amazing, and my wife had the corned beef. I think I would have the corned beef again next time, but they both wee amazing. I can easily say they are the best I have had in LA.

And the service was fantastic as well. It could be dangerous living near Brent's, it is too good!!

Good 2 Great Chinese in the west SF valley

I have to say I did really enjoy A&W's seafood and vegetable dishes. The Dim Sum was only good if you really didn't want to drive and get good Dim Sum, but the seafood was pretty damn good.
