Blue Plate Mayonnaise in the Los Angeles Area

Saw $48 a case for the 32oz jars, plus shipping! Not bad! Sort of, okay a little more than Best Foods but........

If by fresh you mean uncured or smoked, I am positive the andouille I had from LJ was cured and smoked, smoked for sure!

Chili coming up again

Try Shaka's in Alhambra, for some reason, to me, Hawaiians make chili that I like1 Art's The Art of Hamburgers in El Monte makes a chili I like. Try Johnny's Shrimp Boat on Whittier, you might like it, get the chili and rice.

Going to make Porchetta. Want to get my pork belly and loin this weekend. Any good spots on the Westside you can recommend?

Huntington Meats! One of the owners, Jim is Italian and they can put it al together for you. Their prices are reasonable. I have seen one of the butchers, John?, making one once. Grab some sausages while you are there.

The intent was a little crispier bread, maybe 400 for 2 minutes. Come on chef.

Won Kok is no longer an option! Try CHinese Friends, Mandarin Chateau and Full House

Had a good meal, still a work in progress. The shrimp and oysters lacked a real crunch and the bread would have been better if it had been in a 400 degree oven for 3 or 4 minutes! I loved the store, some real treats. the bean section was excellent. bought some andouille sausage but need it bit more umph, more garlic, pepper and heat, just a bit. I did enjoy at home but it was also a little pricey. I will be returning in a couple months to see if they have everything in sync. Good Luck Chef!

Madarin Chateau, Excellent! Tea Smoked Duck, House special shrimp, chinese broccoli, string beans, juicy dumplings, everything we ate was excellent.
Chinese Friends also very good, just straight forward good chinese food!

Label's Table: Big Price Increase

Its everything, the drought effects meat and produce and bread, the minimum wage went up which also effects the workers comp, sigh. It ain't easy!

Label's Table: Big Price Increase

Everyone has raised prices! Minimum wage went up,
Drought has caused vegetables and proteins to cost more. I am sure if you noticed, at your regular market, everything is more, meat, dairy and veggies.

Where to get good salami and bread near Long Beach

Find the nearest Claro's Italian Deli!

Best Mexican in San Gabriel Valley?

Babita is Authentic but not inexpensive! If you want Mexican American then Paco's on Valley Blvd, it is a stand. Colonial and Bizarra are New School Mexican! There is also an El Tepeyac in Monterey Park or somewhere in San Gabriel, not the one in East LA.

Second that! PieHole not so much!
