OYSTERS

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.

Cafeterias in LA?

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

CA Foie Gras Import Ban-Struck Down by Court

Next month's dish of the month: FOIE GRAS

Chicken Parm Hero (a la NYC)

If you're hard up for a chicken parm sandwich, try Carmine's in South Pasadena.

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.

Where to eat good Asian food on Christmas Day?

35 people??? I'm surprised you survived that ordeal.

Cassels Hamburgers Opening!

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

L.A. Dish of the Month, December 2014 -- TAMALES

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

I change my vote to TAMALES. Tis the season for delicious meat filling in corn masa!

How is Urban Hiatus? I love about a half mile from that place and drive by all the time.

Who makes good BBQ Baked Beans?

I prefer savory baked beans to the super sweet kind. Anyone have suggestions?

2014 Sammy Awards - Who's In?

I'm a huge King Torta fan, but they recently changed their bread. Instead of the soft bread, they now use some chewy bread that is burnt on top so it cuts the top of your mouth as you chew forever. Very disappointing.

Bow and Truss – Wanted to love it, but ended up liking it. (North Hollywood)

That was my reaction too. I was going try bow and truss but not after watching him on the show. Must suck to work for him

Unusual and interesting ethnic markets in the Greater Los Angeles Area?

Fully agreed, westside gal. LA is pretty pitiful Italian-wise compared to the Bay Area. I miss Liguiria Bakery and the Focaccia bread

Bachi Burger - Sawtelle

Good for you. For many people service is just as important as the food. I'm in that category.

October is also harvest time for grapes, which make delicious WINE, which is a very large industry in California. Oktoberfest is a German tradition, not California.

PS, I love beer too.

I was going to nominate Kabobs, but LATIN AMERICAN SEAFOOD is more interesting to me.

Good takeout/fast food Koreatown/Mid-Wilshire

Hopefully you were able to find a table to sit at. Yikes, that sounds good but messy. I was going to suggest Papa Cristos at Pico and Normandie.
