Looking for Hong Shao Ro (red cooked pork)!

Hi, I'm having a serious craving for homestyle chinese pork shoulder. I feel like I never see it on the menu at Chinese restaurants - does anyone know where I can order hong shao ro? Also known as Mao's red cooked pork. . .

LA Bread in Atwater Village

I agree that the pastries and coffee are great. Went there for breakfast yesterday, though, and was extremely disappointed. Ordered the breakfast burrito and was dismayed to find that it was made with PROCESSED CHEESE. Not what I expected for $7+. Also, the home fries/potatoes were undercooked and pretty much inedible. Sourdough toast was superb but not enough to warrant another meal visit. From now on, I'll just stop by for treats.

Chinese food in Glendale/Burbank/Los Feliz/Silverlake?

Hi Friends,

I've lived in Glendale (on the Burbank border) for a year or so and have had no luck finding decent chinese food. Gourmet 88 was a nightmare, and takeout from Joy Feast was notably mediocre. I'm too scared to try anything else without help!

I'm meeting up with some friends tonight and am craving good chinese food. Willing to go to Los Feliz or Silverlake if I have to. Would love some guidance - THANKS!

Firefly Bistro

I went to brunch there a couple of months ago. Didn't have the hot chocolate, but the Bloody Marys were good! The food was - as you might expect - not fabulous. Good, but not life-changing. Service was the tiniest bit snooty.

Griller, thanks for the report. I just moved to Glendale and am really struggling with restaurants. So far, I've found Carousel, but that's it. Any advice? Thanks!

Hi Hounds,

Any ideas on a nice dinner spot in Glendale or even Los Feliz? I like Carousel in Glendale but the decor and atmosphere leave something to be desired. Need a classy place. Thanks!
