La Scala Sucks

That's the beauty of social media. You can share your negative feedback on numerous sites like Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Chowhound, TripAdvisor, etc. People who know you would trust your opinion of Scala and avoid them for their crappy service. I'm with you. I don't care how good a place is. If they're going to treat us like crap, then I can take my hard-earned dollars elsewhere. It's not like any particular restaurant is the only game in town and there are plenty of alternatives.

Oh, and the waitress kept asking us if we wanted more rice or salad at no extra cost. It has a decent outdoor seating area under the patio shared with all the fabric bolts.

L.A. Dish of the Month, July 2015 -- SKEWERS

There are dozens of little Persian/ Mediterranean places in downtown LA, especially in the Fabric District. We stopped by Nafas Kabob at Maple and 9th in the heart of all the fabric and trim shops. I had a juicy and well seasoned koobideh kabob for $5.99 lunch special (1 skewer, rice and salad). Very friendly staff there.

Uber is cheaper than taxis, mostly.

I don't mind mixing it up every once in a while to types of cuisine or neighborhoods, though it would be difficult for far reach posters to make it other areas.

halvah in LA?

There's only a couple of markets on Fairfax that I'm aware of. There are larger Kosher grocery stores on Pico near La Cienega: Glaat Mart and Elat Kosher mart which sell good halvah. Also, try Sun Market on Westwood (Persian)

Most underrated LA restaurants

+1 on Craft. The service there is impeccable and they take care of the little details which make the experience that more enjoyable.

Fun restaurant with teens?

I second the recommendation for Grand Central Market. There's something for everyone there. Seating is a bit of an issue though.

Ok, lets throw down ... rank your places for best xiao long bao (or XLB)

I don't speak Chinese and I can't understand them when I tried calling previously. Plus it's easier to ask on the interwebz and let the experts answer!

Does anyone know if Mama Lu's serves dumplings in the evening on Sunday? My aunt has her heart set on going here.

2 weeks SF Bay Area to LA and back: 28 meals worth! (Pt 1/2)

I've read your three posts on your trip. Thanks for the review! It gives me something to look forward to on my trips back to my folks house in Monterey.

LA Vacation in July - Critique my choices!

Din tai fun is awfully far in Arcadia off the 210 Freeway. You could go to the one in Glendale I suppose which also has lots of Armenian restaurants like Elena's or Raffi's. There are closer and just as good places with more Chinese food flexibility depending on your mood between the 60 and 10 freeways in Monterey Park.

The Times They Are A Changin' in the West San Gabriel Valley--New Bay Seafood Replaced By Happy Table

For some reason that's a cursed location. Too many restaurants have opened there. It's not the location as the inexplicably popular Baccali is next door and also across the street from Tasty Garden, Garden Cafe, And Banh mi my tho

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.
