De Sano Pizza Bakery

Bumping this to see if there's any more recent feedback on this place. I love Stella Barra pizza and am wondering if any comparisons can be drawn?

Quenelle (Burbank)

I have had great luck with every sorbet I've tried. The grapefruit mojito was a particular standout. Lovely cranberry lime, too.

Mazzarino's - closed for now

FYI, the OP was in 2007. As far as I know, they are open as usual these days! :)

Where Are the Joints? aka smaller, individually run neighborhood places?

Cafe Verona, 201 S. La Brea, although they recently revamped their dinner menu into something smaller & pricier. Still very much a joint at breakfast & lunch/brunch.

Koreatown, Little Armenia and Thai Town most interesting restaurants?

Yogurt kebabs are outstanding (I usually get chicken), as are the roast chicken (allow at least 30 min. & ideally call ahead), hummus, tabbouleh, sugok, and lamb-shank special (Sat/Sun only), as is the baklava.

Recs for group of 12 (with kids) in Los Osos vicinity?

Thanks very much for the Wee Shack rec. I finally got there, but without the party of 12. Great burger & I loved the shake. Will definitely revisit!

Question re: Plantation Blackstrap Unsulphured Molasses

Anyone know why the non-organic version of this product has 12 fewer calories and 130 mg less potassium than the organic version? Noticed this in a side-by-side comparison yesterday & am curious.

Brunch at Sycamore Kitchen

Your best bet is to get there as close to 8 as possible, esp. On Saturday or Sunday.

Actually organic at Farmers Markets ???

I recall that LA Weekly published a big expose on this topic sometime in the recent past. 6-7 yrs, maybe?

Los Balcones Boarded-Up

Noticed this a few weeks ago, and Eater finally posted something about it this week. They've hired a star mixologist of some sort & are revamping drink & food menu. I think late Feb is the estimated reopening.

Is this recommended? Looking for a good lunch spot for Friday. Eating Est has also been suggested...

Your best meal of 2013?

I stumbled upon it about a month ago on a Sunday. They seem to do a different layer cake each weekend, so it's not on the regular menu. I wish I could count on seeing it again!

Tips: What determines your tip %?

Biggest factor for me is frequent refills on any free liquid (water, coffee, iced tea). Also, since I frequently dine alone, I always tip well if the server is attentive without being intrusive (as in repeatedly coming by every 5 min. to inquire about the meal). I am always mindful of the fact that if I'm at a table in a busy place, they could have 2 customers in my place.

Teach me all you know about ham, please.

For the leftovers, I highly recommend serving with pancakes, French toast or waffles!
