Burbank Area Apps/Tapas/Lounge

There is a place in Studio City called "Next Door Tapas Lounge", and the same guy owns another Spanish tapas place further down the road called "Bokado". Both would be good, but for a more casual, hip setting, try Next Door:

WHERE TO BUY HOMEMADE, AUTHENTIC TAMALES IN LA?

I love tamales but find that not everyone makes them to my taste. I like the firm masa, and often I find places which serve the masa soft, sweet, and corn-mealy which I don't like. Where can I find authentic, homemade tamales? I'm thinking i can probably find them in east LA, and years ago I had a good connection there.

Pumpkin Souffle ??

Try Bistro Garden in Studio City --- they typically have seasonal souffles and I believe they have pumpkin around the holidays (they've also had hezelnut, lemon, and chocolate). Give them a call to be sure.

WORD ASSOCIATION: I say [restaurant name], you think [specific dish]?

Bay Cities Deli = Godmother Sub
Kate Mantilini = fresh guacamole (if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out)
PF Changs = crispy green beans w/ spicy dipping sauce
Malo (Silverlake) = chips w/ salsa flight & cucumber margaritas
Crustacean = Roasted Cracked Crab
Cheesecake Factory = Boston House Salad
Ruth’s Chris & Roy’s (tie) = Crab Cakes (FYI Roy’s isn’t carrying them right now due to ‘the high cost of crab’ – if they served them, they’d ‘have to charge $40 for them’).

This is a realllly short list…

What's the big deal with the KOGI TRUCK? Long lines, but is it worth it?

I've seen video of the lines, and I have to admit the menu looks good, but wondering if it's really worth hunting down a truck...

Where to find "French Waffles" (danish pastries w/ buttercream) in LA??

Hi and thanks. I'd already googled and called those folks -- none of them have what I'm looking for. They are really hard to find!

Where to find "French Waffles" (danish pastries w/ buttercream) in LA??

There is a pastry called a FRENCH WAFFLE which is a long puff pastry with buttercream in the middle along with a light layer of raspberry jam. I have only been able to find them at a Danish bakery in Santa Barbara called Andersen's.. I love these things and there must be a bakery in/near LA that carries them. Anyone know?
