BBQ in Brentwood. "Holy Cow!"

lol I prefer Frankie and Johnnie's in the area and really miss the original Maria's pizza with those enormous 3" diameter pepperoni! They are open late (for the area anyway) which is nice as well

Gentrification of Los Angeles Chinatown Continues--Little Jewel

Can you imagine the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth if he charged price points like: Tar & Roses, Rustic Canyon, the Mozza's, Salt's Cure..

Where to get ingredients to make dashi stock?

If you are in Korea town might as well check Assi supermarket first. They have a good selection of Japanese goods.

Taylor's or the Dresden Room? Where would you go?

Dresden is good for drinking and having fun- not eating. The food is expensive and not that good

the only real sub is to leave it out, really. You could pickle some dashi kombu and keep it on hand in the pantry. Then julienne before mixing your poke. Might be good, but not really the same.

Limu Kohu? I've seen it at Maruki Torrance, even Bristol farms sometimes. seaweed is becoming easier to find I saw some fresh at Whole Foods, though I didn't check what kind it was

Sunday brunch in West LA

I like Jar, but I always think of it as a 'safe' mother's day type of place. Good and everything is well executed but.. not super exciting. If I'm in that area I'd rather go to Little next door and sit on the patio.

Someone mentioned Superba F&B they are pulling some excellent espresso drinks right now on that sexy La Marzocco.

Is Baco Mercat really this bad?

Just keep in mind that bar seating there is pretty tight, but it is a fun place to sit for a few drinks and small plates. Overall though I prefer Bar Ama around the corner currently, especially if you go on a Sunday they usually have some interesting taco specials. Good cocktails at the bar as well.

If he lives up the street from Amandine (as do I) then Farmshop is Very close and its good but not all that exciting IMO. I think Flores or Superba Snack bar (very good) would be more fun atmosphere with really well done food.

Singapore Leaf Open in Alhambra

Is this related in anyway to the place in the original farmers market? I believe the name is similar...

Sushi Tsujita Creates Its Niche in Little Osaka [REVIEW with photos]

just an FYI but I spent 30-ish on my meal and though Yui was great as well. In other words I didn't feel my service was less than excellent due to my check..

I'm not kevin, but I believe the chef mentioned somewhere (the other thread maybe) that he brings in the po'boy bread from NOLA because it is so important though he may bake other bread in house in the future

Where to find Red JalapeƱos & Red Serrano peppers?

right now they are in season and I have seen red serranos, jalapenos, fresh red chile de arbol and red cayenne all at the SM FM. Korean markets will usually have red fresnos and jalapenos as well
