Best Mexican food in WLA?

Ah, that is quite the question. For most cities, one wouldn't have to ask. But the City of Angels...

The question came from someone on the "You know you grew up in West Los Angeles if you remember..." page. Most of the people who post, it seems to me, refer to places west of Sepulveda, south of Sunset, and north of Venice. But heck...these people are like all good Angelenos: they don't really limit themselves too much.

Love your recs! Very well done...I'll post it to FB straightaway. Thank you!

I mean simply that. FB refers to Facebook, and the question has been posted before on many a page there. Does that make sense?

Thank you! "Here" means anywhere in LA. My friend doesn't know the city at all, and he's willing to travel.

Thanks so much to you both...

The visiting friend is someone who's never been to the City of Angels, and seems to think that it's quite a bit smaller. Also, he gave no specifics as to donut types. He has heard that LA is a donut mecca. All the info I got...

What is the closest New England equivalent to an In-N-Out burger?

What is the closest New England equivalent to an In-N-Out burger?

Hello, crowdingthepan and southie_chick and Morganna! Thank you all for your responses...your generosity is heartwarming. I'll send all responses to my friend here in SoCal.

Crowding...I've heard of Flat Patties, but I can't remember the source. Saveur, maybe? Regardless...thank you!

Southie...UBurger? New to me!!! I've have Five Guys here, and I was not impressed. (My nephew just told me they have free peanuts...?)

Morganna, my dear, I wish I knew where the young man lives; I don't. All that I was told initially was that it was New England. Only when CH told me that I had to choose did I...have to choose!

My dears, thank you. I have to go now, and find peanuts for my nephew.

Hello! City of Angels 'hound here. I've been asked by the kind folks at CH to post this here, rather than on the L.A. board. The logic escapes me a bit, but I respect Chow regardless.

Anyway...a friend has asked me to find out what is the nearest New England equivalent to an In-N-Out burger. You're welcome to voice your like or disdain for any or all, but the friend's young nephew has fallen in love with I-N-O while he's been here, and he'd like to relive some Cali moments when he's back home (where that is, I know not).

Thank y'all!

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Thanks to everyone! I think I'll go with the taco party idea; it's the most well-suited to this crowd at the moment.

Your ideas are great, and I'll keep all of them in mind...

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Thanks for the wonderful ideas! More, please!

I thought about including more details, but there really aren't many that would narrow the field. The dish doesn't need to be prepared ahead; everyone is an omnivore; spicy's out for the children; any type of cuisine is welcome.

You're great, Chowpeople!

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Hello, 'hounds!

I'd like to make an entree for three adults and two 10-year-old kids. The children are in a "no-casserole" phase now, which I gather means anything in a baking dish served in squares. The adults are all foodies; the kids were too, once upon a time. Now they prefer KFC and McD to just about anything. (Oh, for the days when they knocked back smoked salmon with abandon...)

I'm an adventurous cook, although my skills aren't quite as advanced as I'd like. Ideas, please, from any and all of you lovely people. Thank you!

Visiting from NYC - what's the "best" of the things that aren't great here?

It's certainly true that Cinco de Mayo is treated by some as simply an opportunity to get smashed, but that's not all that happens. Please take a look at this site: http://golosangeles.about.com/od/fair...

Of course, there are other sites as well.

I hope you all have a marvelous trip to our lovely city!

Help Me Teach My Cousin How to Cook

Hello! I agree with much that has been said so far, so I won't repeat. May I suggest that she get The Joy of Cooking? A wonderful book; not only for its recipes but for its informative sections. And Barbara Kafka's book The Microwave Gourmet might just get her going in the right direction - also because of its informative bits.

Let's not forget what the word peri means (not the prefix):

A lovely, graceful person.

How appropriate.
