Ramen in SFV?

Not sure. I went tonight. Menu is much smaller: four choices of ramen; no gyoza, karagge, beer, or sake, but the quality was great. They reopened in mid-November so I was wrong about the timeline. Definitely worth a trip.

Ramen in SFV?

Last I checked, about a month ago, they were gone. Someone posted on another thread that they had packed up and moved to Vegas. A shame.

Ramen in SFV?

Ramen Jinya in Studio City is the best I have found.

first time in LA!!! give me your top 5.

There are two sides to it. One is the mediocre deep-fried joint you remember. The other serves fresh crab, clams, mussels, shrimp, etc. While it is not a culinary tour de force it does provide good fresh seafood with a good selection of beer, a great view and a friendly ambiance that will dispel any notion you may have that bikers are unpleasant people.

Dinner Recommendations for Burbank area

Here are a couple of recommendations near the Burbank airport, Mariscos Colima, http://www.mariscoscolima.com/, Mexican seafood which should make your pescatarian companion very happy, and Chiba for sushi, http://www.japaneserestaurantinfo.com.... I don't know of anything that will satisfy you in the Valencia/Santa Clarita area.

Delmonico's lobster special?

Surprising. Popped right up from the link above. Middle of second line down.

Recs for Weekend in LA

However, as weinermobile mentioned, Neptune's Net has the view; the fresh side - not the fried side - has good food, the price is reasonable, and the OP will get to rub elbows with a lot of nice bikers. A true Socal experience.

Fresh English Peas

You are very welcome! I hope you tried some sushi or Korean delicacies as well. Its a lovely place.

Egg roll wrappers??

Ralphs carries then as well. Surprises at 99 Ranch. They usually have several brands.

self rising flour-

The mods will undoubtedly switch you to the home cooking board, but self-rising flour has both baking powder and baking soda in it. As the previous comment notes it is common to Southern American cooking. I use it for perhaps the most complicated dish I make - a Mississippi caramel cake. Good-luck!

Buying Wild, good quality, Seafood? Los Angeles? Farmers Markets? Tips?

Its not in LA but a short drive down to Newport Beach and you can visit Pearson's Port, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pearso... Like the Ventura Fish Company they actually catch a lot of the fish and seafood they sell. Really nice people.

Anything interesting in San Fernando Valley?

Tuning Fork is owned by some musicians from Michigan (hence the name). Not corporate at all. Haven't been to either Laurel Tavern or the Woodman.

There are good gastropubs, but, of course, you are also in sushi heaven. Joan's on Third has a location just down from the Tuning Fork. Natas, further west on Ventura, has good dinner and lunch menus and excellent pastries. Its a lot more fun to eat in the Valley than it used to be.

Fresh English Peas

Farm Boy has them.

Anything interesting in San Fernando Valley?

Really enjoy both Tipple and Brine (especially $1 oysters on Mondays), and the Tuning Fork. Haven't been to Barrel and Ashes, but have heard mixed reviews. The Tipsy Cow, further west on Ventura is also good, but I like the Tuning Fork's burgers better.

Hawaiian poke

The Fish King in Glendale has three types of poke. Doesn't compensate for Glendale being nothing like Hawaii, but pretty good poke.

Dinner for 10 in Studio City area?

Natas, http://nataspastries.com/, should fit your requirements. Most places will be pretty busy on a Friday night, and thus a bit loud.

Where can I find quality Paska ...

Yes its on the 12th, but not every church sells it. If I recall ipse is a proficient cook and it is very easy to make. The Russian version is called kulich and is served with paskha a sweet molded cheese.

Blimpy Burger (Ann Arbor) update

Maybe they have worked out the kinks. I'll give it another try next time I am in town.

Malibu in March

So sorry you were taken ill. As it appears you hail from Calgary or thereabouts I imagine our heatwave/drought would have been a welcome change for you.
I agree with J.L. that this thread will provide valuable future info.

Its a joke. Michigan and Ohio State have been duking it out practically forever, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan...

I don't understand Jeni's

Being rather fond of making ice cream I have tried both Jeni's recipes and others including David Lebovitz and Nancy Silverton. As odd as it seems Jeni's eggless technique - substituting cornstarch and cream cheese for egg yolks, in my experience, produces a superior product. Sounds weird, but try it yourself.

That said I have never purchased her ice cream and can't comment as to whether it is worth the price.

As far as regional bias (for Tony C); I grew up in Ann Arbor and harbor no love for anything from Ohio.

Grass fed meats, pastured eggs * PLACES TO EAT*

Saddlepeak Lodge should fit the bill, http://www.saddlepeaklodge.com/dinner/

Organic Produce Farms, Organic Pastured Eggs and Meats, that you can pick up around Cali?

Avocados don't ripen until they are off the tree so they aren't a great candidate for pick-ur-own.

La Ratte Potatoes at stores in L.A.?

Yes but I suspect to OP wants to do Joel Robuchon style potato puree - and he specifies la ratte.
I have purchased them at the Mar Vista Farmers' Market. If it is her intention to do the Robuchon recipe I recommend hitting up Epicure Imports open weekend this Friday or Saturday and stocking up on Beurremont butter, a French style American butter with 83% butterfat. Great quality and price.

where to get Shirataki noodles??

Yes. They have an extensive selection of noodles, very good fish including skate wings and whole monkfish tails, and a good food court. Plus it is remarkably clean. A bonus if you are an outdoors person - its across the street from REI.
