Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - July 2014

Sadly the Korean Sausage was a nay for me. I've had the Seoul Sauages that they are patterned after and sadly they didn't even come close. In the end to me, they tasted like Kielbasa with sesame seeds...

Yep! I kinda feel the same way. It also works well in making your own salad dressing. It really needs other ingredients (and a bit of salt) to shine.

Belcampo Cheeseburger

Actually I found the bun the weakest link in this burger. It fell apart on me. :( But the pattie had a good flavor, a bit more beefy than the Belcampo, but I liked the spread and onions. It was more on the fancy burger spectrum than Belcampo...

In Japan it might have been made using the Kyoto method of drip. Here is a little toy I've been dying to get myself...

Orleans and York: Now with a second location in Inglewood

Mike's Deli literally like a couple of blocks away from the Slauson O&Y. It is a Winsor Hills institution, it's my GO TO place for sandwich plates and salad trays. They also have a location in DTLA near Little Tokyo because their sandwiches are so popular with the LAPD in both areas. The Chicken Salad at O&Y (thanks for getting back to me PaulF!) sounds just like the one at Mikes, which I love. We'll be trying it for sure soon. :)

LOL!! I don't think I could have done that, but I love their bread and filling because they have a great balance. Not too heavy. not too over done. Good construction of sandwich and that bread now it just heavenly and non-obtrusive. And yes, I don't feel like I'm going to pop by suit jacket by eating one... But still... I try to restrain my visits there none the less... LOL!!

OMF(ucking)G ... Horchata Soft Serve

Ack! Outted me. I've only had it once... but I would go back. again. and again. and again. It's really good the flavor to horchata is very true with the rice and almond and cinnamon. If I was feeling particularly hedonistic, I would pair it with the Chicken and Waffle tenders at Popeyes. Nothing else at McD's is all that good (Since they currently aren't serving McWings)

The Inglewood location is bigger and actually has a nice little patio. Not much scenery, unless you are a transit geek and wanna see the progress on the LAX line as they build it across the street.

Really? I went there for the first time this week. Not impressed and the Chipotle next door had LOTS more business.

L.A. Co-Dishes of the Month, July 2014: FRIED CHICKEN (and Chicken Fried) and FROZEN DAIRY-BASED DESSERT PRODUCTS

For this post, I always go with the classics... So for the US v. Belgium game... I suppose I COULD have gotten the Chicken and Waffles strips.. but instead went all American and went to Flossies...

https://twitter.com/Dommy_in_LA/statu...

Flossies has a lunch special that includes two of their sides and a dark meat portion of their famous fried chicken. The fried chicken was great. Not as crisp as I remembered it (It might have been holding and then I had to drive it to work) but it still was worlds better than most of the fried chicken out there. I am pretty sure flossies seasons the chicken in addition to the batter. Sometimes you get wonderful batter but awful bland musty chicken (Golden Bird).

Typically I get the greens and mac n cheese (although Flossie's Mac N Cheese isn't the best) but this time I decided to try the corn/okra and mashed potatoes. A bit industrial, but good. The Gravy wasn't too salty or tasted of based. The potatoes were light and not gluey. The corn not dried out and okra not overly mush or slimey. This isn't a fancy plate, but for comfort food after your team loses in OT, excellent...

It's very night... like thin sheets. It's like the Sarindian Paper Crackers, but in salt form. I'm not a huge fan of those pebbly salts (like on pretzels)

Handmade Corn tortillas not from Los Cincos Puntos

I love the blue corn tortillas from the Tortilla place in El Mercadito.

I love the Pink Salt Grinder. I keep one here at work and it is inexpensive enough I don't mind if someone else uses it occassion.

BUT! I did just try the new Cypriot Pyramid Salt. LOVE IT! I'm not a huge salt fiend (in fact I'm pretty sensititive to it) but I adore finishing salts and adding a pinch of salt to my salads and this is perfect for that. It add real crunch and a wonderfully clean salty flavor. I'd love to make home made pretzels and sprinkle these on top! :D

LOL!! I usually don't go to Fast Food Places, but I was short on time, there is one at the corner of the main road by my home and needed lunch and yes, I got the Chicken and Waffle Tenders because I could eat them in my car. And although I did just get three... two of them were HUGE!! Also, their Red Beans and Rice are still delish.

Wonderful!! I plan to make use of the downtime knitting. So some shore time is on the plan. In fact on the first visit that was suggested to me, I was too embarrassed to say "Ocean? No... I'm going to get Gelato!" LOL!!!
