Just generally, as to cocktails, I'd have to say this is a valuable thread. Perhaps one worth ongoing status. It makes me thirsty.

Can you reveal the proportions? Seems like a drink worth making at home.

Little Tokyo LA, Not To Be Missed?

Half the time I used to confuse your posts with Servorg's. Can you step up and fill the gap? I'm hoping.

Little Jewel

Yeah, stopped in to look around the other day. Potential is there. Clearly inspired by Central Grocery but aiming a little higher. Time will tell if it becomes more a takeout destination or if the eating area expands and it becomes a place to lounge about.

Whither Servorg?

With the unfortunate passing of Mr. Shaw, what remains of eGullet? And for how long?

Kid Friendly Restaurant near El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles

Mel's isn't far, but I would not call it great.

Looking for BEST Omakase experience under $200

I think you can do well at Kimagure for $100, $125 pp. In part, it depends what you might be drinking.

Moving to Los Feliz from Seattle, Please Help.

Please enjoy your disregard for my first pick. As to the rest, I respectfully disagree.
I'll stand by Yuca's, RFT, BFTIE. What are your picks and how far are they from LF? Not that far I'll wager.
Is your point that the absolute best Mexican eats in LA are not found within the very small bounds of LF? OK, you win!
But frankly, the thing is this is LA. We think nothing of hopping in the hupmobile and rodding off to Rivera, GCM, a branch of King Taco, Guelaguetza, etc., et al. which are very frigging close. So essentially, I'm saying your critque is meaningless. It's like picking one outer arrondissement in Paris and finding it lacking in 3 star restaurants. You're in the Paris of Mexican food in America. Enjoy it.

Uh, I haven't been but Mexico City gets pretty good reviews generally. And I have been to Yuca's and it does fine by me. And there's RFT and Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada. So, are you confusing yourself? I think so. You're welcome. De nada.

Not sure I know it, but if you hum a few bars I'll fake it.

Juices Fountain is kind of a cray cool juice sandwich place that moved over from a bizarre location on Vine. Cash only. But worth it.

Pasadena City Hall lunch options?

Sometimes they are on El Molino near the Playhouse. Maybe you should beg.
Or go to EuroPane, Settebello, Tender Greens, El Portal; is there a happy hour at McCormick?

Super King definitely has some mostly canned stuff from Turkey, but has a good mediterranean/middle eastern/mexican deli counter.

See perk's comment below. But we do have a good monthly flea market at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena (there are others but it's gigantic).

Growlers: does anyone use them in LA?

I hear Stone Brewing Co. fills growlers at their stores/breweries.

You can get good shwarma as well as tarna at any of the branches of Zankoo Chicken several of which are within an easy drive of Los Feliz.
