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!

Arkansas Black apples….anyone???

Too bad! I ended up getting mine at Whole Foods, and the resultant pie was very good.

damn good cake?

Karen Hatfield does a layer cake at Sycamore Kitchen, different flavors every weekend (I only go there on Sat. or Sun., not sure if she puts one out on weekdays), always outstanding. You won't find it first thing in the morning, though; they tend to wait for the lunch/brunch hour. About a week ago, it was a chai cake with orange mascarpone filling that was easily one of the top 5 desserts I've had, period.
