Friends visiting from England and Italy- where to eat?

If you're in mid city, take them to the Farmer's Market and everyone can have their choice of eats.

World's Seafood

Looks like everything is fried there based on the Yelp pictures.

Memphis' Gus's Fried Chicken (World Famous) Coming To Los Angeles

Interesting. I wonder where in LA they will open up.

Those are really expensive cocktails

Chicken Pot Pie At Costco?

I had it last Friday night bought from the Costco in Los Feliz at a friend's little get together. Crust was surprisingly flaky, and contents were a bit salty but I'm very sensitive to salt. I saw two others putting extra salt on their portions, so there you go. I thought it had nice flavor and the gravy was nice and thick. I'd get it again for a dinner party or something to eat for a few days so we don't have to cook.

Sunnin Lebanese - I won't be going back

Yeah we've been to shamshiri grill and Shaherezad and quite enjoyed each meal though if I had to choose, I'd pick Shaherezad. Thanks for the advice about the new Turkish place. We'll definitely report back if we go somewhere Chow worthy. I'm not paying so I may not have much say in the matter. LOL

Sunnin Lebanese - I won't be going back

Damn, we were planning going to Sunnin next week as we have an event at UCLA but perhaps we'll go to one of the Persian restaurants instead.

What other Lebanese places are there in the westside or mid city?

Family Style, tasting menu or prix fixe for party of 12

Papa Cristos on Thursday nights, which is family style and a set menu. Plus there are belly dancers for entertainment. I think it's about $25/person

Tony C On Tiki Cocktails at Twin Dragon

I live down the street from Twin Dragon and it's our guilty pleasure since we aren't willing to make the trek to SGV on the weeknight. The drinks have a generous pour and, dare I say, the food isn't half bad for westernized Chinese?

I drive by Pollo ala Brassa every day and it has had a B/C rating for the past year or two.

Place to buy fresh seafood mix in LA?

Any Vallarta market or Super King has fresh seafood mix in the deli sections next to the butchers.

I take it your kids' school doesn't have a cafeteria. LOL.

Restaurant Week (Jan 19-Feb 1)

I wonder if any of the menus will change now that the foie gras ban has been gloriously overturned

I'd love a burger thread, but at this time of year, you gotta go with CHILI.

Cassels Hamburgers Opening!

Do they cook to order fresh made patties or do they have the pre-formed frozen patties? My friend likes burgers very very rare (ie., blue) and we have trouble finding places willing to do that correctly.

Cassels Hamburgers Opening!

Hopefully it will be like the old style instead of the horrible shell of itself by the recent Korean owners.

Bread at Banh Mi My Tho changed?

I was at BMMT today and got my usual shredded chicken. First thing I noticed was that the sandwich appeared smaller than normal and cost $3.27 with tax. I too thought the bread was different but I liked it. It wasn't so crusty as to cut the top of my mouth. I also didn't peel as much of the excess bread off like I normally do. The chicken was a little fattier than normal but just as flavorful. Still a very good baguette and close to work.

SGV Chinese Top 10

Yup, the San Gabriel Valley is probably the MOST discussed and dissected region/type of food on Chowhound. Pastrami is the 2nd most popular topic on Chow.

Happy eating sku!

China Red for dinner?

Haha, bless your mom and good luck in this bill war. Old habits die hard. Slip a piece of paper with a nice note to the server in the bill and tell her it's an amazing coupon.

China Red for dinner?

I have to ask. Does she pay for the meals or do you? My dad is the exact same way and still gives me crap about the time I had the gall to order a $10 glass of wine during my sister's birthday. Solution? My sister and I pay for meals now and we order appetizers and drinks. Now he doesn't complain.... as much
