What about Jeff's? I think they are worthy of at least a mention.

Albacore at Ventura Fish Company 4/26 and 4/27

Here is the reply I just received from them...

Some of the fish have been caught prior to the announcement that we have a market on the horizon, but not all. Regardless, all of the albacore tuna caught is frozen right away as it does not travel well fresh. The swordfish, opah, ahi tuna, mahi mahi, mako and thresher shark are never frozen and are sold fresh off of our boat The Ventura II.
Hope you can join us at the market next weekend.
Regards,
Ventura Fish Company

Albacore at Ventura Fish Company 4/26 and 4/27

Ozhead, I had my own thoughts how that was possible but instead of me guessing I emailed them to find out the answer to your great question. I will repost the answer as soon and I get it.

Albacore at Ventura Fish Company 4/26 and 4/27

I don't know prices because I ended up making a trade with someone for fish they had bought themselves.

Albacore at Ventura Fish Company 4/26 and 4/27

Just got an unexpected email from VFC saying they have caught large amounts of albacore and will be at the Ventura Harbor (Spinnaker Drive) docks on 4/26 from 8a-4p and on 4/27 from 9a-3p. They will also bring in Opah, Shark, Mahi-Mahi, and Sashimi Grade Ahi Tuna. None of the fish is ever frozen. I don't know if this will be their last trip for the year. Albacore are usually caught all summer long by recreational fisherman but I don't know what the laws are for commercial fisherman. If you have not had fresh albacore this is a treat for sure.

Organic Chicken Livers and Hearts in SFV?

I found this LA Times article from 2011 that mentions KENDOR FARM but I have no experience with them. Their website is toast BTW. In any event I would visit the farmers markets in the SFV, especially Encino for other possibilities.

Passover Traditions From Around the World

Many have the custom that the head of the household wears a kittel at Seder. My father a'h did it every year.

Burbank is better. Glendale doesnt stock all that Burbank does such as the walnut raisin rolls. I can't understand how Glendale could have more sweets when they have less space.

Moorpark?

For the kids I suggest In 'N Out as a great after tournament meal. 856 New LA Ave

There is a very small but fantastic Italian Bakery called Cararras at 476 New LA Ave with unreal goodies at great prices. This place is a serious find. Don't be fooled by the small amounts in the display case. Everything is in back and they get it for you. Take home is a must!

Sunday Wahoo Sale at Ventura docks

The Ventura Fish Company sent me an email tonight saying they have an abundance of wahoo and are offering it on Sunday only for $6.00 per lb.
This is from 9am to 3pm, at the Ventura Harbor Fish Market on Spinnaker Drive. They also have fresh Ahi Tuna, Swordfish, Mako, Opah, and frozen Albacore. I tried to go today but I was late leaving home and ended up on the 101 frwy in a freaking parking lot full of traffic. I abandoned the trip and tried to console myself at Brent's WLV not having a positive experience today unfortunately. I will not make it on Sunday as I have other plans.

VFC is a long range vessel that comes to the docks a few times a year selling fresh and fresh frozen fish. They sell whole fish and fillets as well.

Going to Murietta 71 and 15 freeways

I am going to visit friends on Thursday and need a good rec for breakfast that is non chain. I figured to stop after getting as far as where the 10 meets the 71 frwy putting a majority of my drive behind me. Also will be driving back to Simi at about 4pm and would stop for dinner/snack if traffic is bad someplace along the way. I have not been in this area for many years so I have no idea what to expect as far as food or traffic.

Large Fruit Tart

Be aware that Glendale Portos may not have a certain item but Burbank will. On one visit the person that helped me at Glendale had no idea that walnut raisin rolls were even sold at Portos. Burbank always has these rolls. And they are really delicious besides...

BURGERS!

Besides the burgers and dogs the garlic ranch fries and tater tots are super good. And I do mean garlic!

I have to second that rec. Just had a FABulous Fab Burger last week. They have Wagu beef burgers too.

Which Corned Beef Should I Buy?

For prices ahead of the sale just call and ask the meat dept. BTW I buy flats every year because the others are too fatty for me. We do a yearly dinner for ten friends every year.

Fab Hot Dogs Burgers

Yeah, you are right. I am a diehard fan but my memories are seriously fading. If I had a farm I would bet it that WF never opens again. I was hoping like everyone else but it's been way too long.

Fab Hot Dogs Burgers

I haven't been by in a long time but I was in the area so I stopped in for lunch with my S.O. The wife was havng a burger so I decided to try one as well and it was fantastic. I got a FAB Burger with pastrami, cheese, tomato and the most delicious sauteed onions I can recall. Art's deli is known for their onions that cook all night and this was much better believe it or not. I also got skinny ranch garlic fries that were perfectly fried to crunchy goodness. You know what? I actually forgot to get a hot dog or polish and I didn't miss it a bit. Gee have I changed from a diehard WF fan to a FAB burger fan? The times are a changing...They sure are.

Best everything in Sherman Oaks?

Not in Sherman Oaks itself but close by at Magnolia and Whitsett. It's a good old fashioned Jewish style deli.

And across the street is Joe Peeps Pizza. Known for being very busy all the time but great pizza.

Your best, most recent breakfast...

WM-you are right. You had the best breakfast. Taking a close second is mine at Country Deli-large marinated skirt steak, crispy home fries, eggs over easy and a very fresh sesame seed bagel with cream cheese.

Thank you for mentioning that because I was about to. The OP could have come and gone by now. Everyone has their own opinion about older posts but IMO I don't revitalize them unless there is a specific reason to do.

Which Trader Joe's Holiday Items do you wish they had year-round?

Pumpkin butter. They carry it from about Thanksgiving on to the second week in December and then it is gone until the following year.
