BEST PIZZA IN THE SAN GABRIEL VALLEY?

I am very picky about pizza and I used to drive 30 miles to Montebello to go to Rio's which has very good pizza but have since found my new staple pizza joint real close to my work which makes things much easier. Alex Di'Peppe's in Arcadia, 140 Las Tunas Dr, Arcadia, CA 91007, (626) 445-0544 I think that they have the freshest ingredients and best service by far. Try it out!!! Hope you like it.

Top 10 Fave French Fries in L.A.

Have you tried the fries (in the shape of potato chips) at the Bucket in Eagle Rock PDG they go real well with their mild cardiac burger. Also a great stand in for steak fries is Fat Burger I just wish they had mor locations.

King Taco: what's in that sauce?!!?! [moved from Los Angeles board]

Hey Speedy Gonzalez,

So in your arsenal of salsas, do you have one that you can share with us that would well and compliment tacos al pastor? I am not dead set on KT red salsa but I am looking for one that will go good with tacos al pastor. Like you said "The main idea behind a salsa is to provide a hightened taste experience of the main dish and not to overwhelm it." Looking forward to your input.
Thank you.

I prefer a red salsa on the hot side. I put pina in the marinade but it blends into the marinade not in chunks in the recipe.

I have been on a long journey trying to make a similar sauce as KT's red sauce and have had no real luck i tried the Rick Bayless one bu it was to vinegary. Upon futher review the KT sauce seems like it is made with a lot of powders blended together. My next trial will be with tomato sauce and a bunch of powders ie.
onion powder
garlic powder
new mexico chile powder
chipotle powder
a very small amount of cider vinegar
mabey some clove powder and oregano powder

i will keep ya posted hope these ideas come in handy
