Where can I buy whole beef rib racks?

Costco has fantastic meat at a great price, but I've never had any luck with the meat cutters there with special requests. Has anyone else?

$100 Gift Card to Spend

If you have a $200 headstart, by all means, get the wine pairing and enjoy a truly fantastic meal. I'm jealous and we expect a full post meal report.

Favorite burger for $5 or less?

I was going to put a plug in for JnJ Burger shack on West Adams, but the price of the cheeseburger is over $5 with tax. You get the plug anyways. :-)

I wouldn't have thought to get a burger at a Mexican restaurant, but you've convinced me to give it a shot.

Super Burger - Bang for your Burger Buck

I second what Nosh said. I used to enjoy the Burger review website until he stopped posting. This bang for your buck blog is pretty cool and the pics are good. Sometimes you just want a simple burger and not have to pay $10 or more.

Shake Shack is coming

Do all the Shake Shacks serve beer? If so, that's a game changer.

Pizzeria Mozza. Beyond the fantastic pizza. The appetizers are fantastic. We loved the meatballs (don't laugh), bone marrow, the super fresh burrata with leeks, speck, etc.

"Food" on Pico

Edit: never mind. I was thinking of a different place. The menu looks pretty good and the place is near the hiking trails.

A New Brunch spot in Granada Hills,CA: Belgium Waffle Haus

Hmm first time poster posting about a new restaurant with a review written that sounds like it came from an advertiser? Hmmm. I live in Granada Hills. I might check this place out but it sure sounds like a shameless plug

What does New York have that LA doesn't?

Mc Michael, those are all good places but most of those places are pretty pricey.

What does New York have that LA doesn't?

LA lacks lots of neighborhood affordable Italian places. There are some here and there but they're certainly not prevalent.

What does New York have that LA doesn't?

Reading some of the threads here, LA doesn't have NY-style food which causes great angst. Gee, no kidding.

Also I like how posters are just naming restaurants. Unless they're chains then of course they won't be in LA

First LA Visit from New York

In east LA, try Guisados tacos. I also like La Parrilla. You're not too far away from Alhambra and Monterey Park for fantastic Chinese food. There are countless threads on this board for Chinese and Vietnamese food.

Chain pubs

Crusting Pipe sounds interesting as we do enjoy wine and port. I'll drink anything for whatever the situation or scene is. I'd like to check out Gordon's as well.

I haven't been to London in about 10 years so I'm not familiar with the pub scene and wouldn't readily identify a chain from a non-chain. Once we decide on an area to stay, I'll ask some more specific questions about our area.

Chain pubs

Thank you for the responses. I should clarify. We will likely eat at a pub, but I meant to say have drinks mainly perhaps have a bite or two of some food.

We haven't quite sorted out where we are staying yet, but I have a sister in the Notting Hill area. I have heard, one should avoid pubs with flat roofs. True?

Looking forward to this one

Chain pubs

Greetings from a fellow hound from LA visiting London in mid May. What's the best way to identify a chain pub versus a local one? Are there any good ones? As with restaurants and bars in the US, I'd prefer to eat at places owned and run by locals rather than a corporation.

Thank you

Favorite Asian-Style pastries in/around SGV?

What's everyone's favorite place to get cha siu baos to go? I'm thinking of the big ones, not the little ones at dim sum restaurants.
