Does anyone know where I can find yucca root?

figueroa produce in highland park/eagle rock is an amazing little grocery store that also happens to have yucca root.

i am looking for eggs produced by chickens that have been allowed to walk around eating bugs and worms in addition to the normal meals provided by the farmers. any ideas? it's sometimes hard to get a clear answer about what the chickens eat at the highland park farmer's market. anyone KNOW that their farmer's market egg purveyor has chickens that eat bugs? i know this may sound odd but it produces extremely orange, rich egg yolks. like in this picture.

Billy's is my favorite deli in LA. If you head in to eat there try to be seated at a table with the thin, short, older Italian waitress with the NYC accent. ask her to tell you a joke. she is absolutely hysterical. Billy's has great chicken in a pot and a pretty good pastrami sandwich but not as good as Langers.=)

Salted Caramel?

Joans on Third sells salted caramel icecream in their frozen items case and it's amazing!

Best sushi (and sushi happy hour) in Studio City/Sherman Oaks?

i agree that Nozawa is the best in that area (and maybe even in all of LA) but it's neither inexpensive nor is there a happy hour.
