It's late and I'm Hungry!

I'm gonna try that place, we've been looking for good Persian.

It's late and I'm Hungry!

When you're hungry (me), and it's late (usually my situation), and you live in Glendale (me) where do you go to find something good? I'm tired of Tommy's or In and Out. No disrespect to either establishment, but I've had more burgers in my 7 months of living in LA then an entire lifetime of living in Philadelphia. Here's a scenario: I'm sitting on the couch job searching and it's around 11:15pm and my girlfriend walks in from a hard days work (from the restaurant Hatfield's)

GF: Hey, you eat?

Me: Nope, did you?

GF: A little, but it was earlier in the day.

Me: I could go for something good

Pause (a long pause because I'm probably using Chowhound to find something)

GF: What's open?

Me: The usual.

GF: Tommy's it is, I could go for a chili dog.

Me(in my mind): Damnit!

Someone please help! What's open late that's good? It doesn't have to be in Glendale, I just want something really good, that'll satisfy the hunger for my non burger side. I don't eat pork and eggs (my girlfriend does) and that's about it. God, I miss WaWa....

A Good Diner

Been living in LA for 6 months. I've enjoyed tons of great eats in many different places, but I've yet to find a diner. I've tried the 101 Cafe (which is amazing), but I'd like to find another great diner, any suggestions? Thanks.

Valentines Dinner

Thank you. I hope she enjoys wherever I choose.

Valentines Dinner

I'd say $75 total. If it's $75 per, I don't mind, she's worth it.

Valentines Dinner

For her, everything's a go lol. For me, I don't eat pork.

Valentines Dinner

Moved to LA about a week ago. I'm looking for a nice place to take a young woman (who's actually a culinary student) on Valentines Day. I live in the Eagle Rock area and I have a medium size budget (max $75). I'm quickly learning the Los Angeles area so I'm willing to travel. She has class on friday so I'm looking for it to be a good dinner. Please and Thank you.

Looking for the perfect Wok

To be honest it doesn't matter. I'd like real Chinese food or East Coast style Chinese. I just want something good.

Looking for the perfect Wok

Thanks everyone. I truly appreciate the suggestions all I'll do my best to try all the different places.

Looking for the perfect Wok

Just moved to LA in June (from Philadelphia). Haven't gotten out much, but when I do I'm always in search for good Chinese. From what I've heard the Chinese food scene isn't much of a scene at all. A friend told me there isn't any Lo Mein(only chow mien). So I turn to you LA Chowhounders, where is the best Chinese food?

A little this a little that

Will do, thanks

A little this a little that

I'm in the middle of reading Marcus Samuelsson's "Yes, Chef" book. It's given me a different outlook on dining in general. Before he became a master chef he would go around to different restaurants sampling the different foods. I'd like to do the same. Name some places you shouldn't miss on a five day trip to LA (it's my 2nd time visiting). It doesn't matter the type of food (i.e. Mexican, Chinese, American, Seafood, ect) just no pork.

THanks

JoJo Restaurant

Thanks, I will be going tonight and I'll get right on making a reservation.

JoJo Restaurant

If you don't mind would you be willing to give a few suggestions as to where I could possibly go for a good restaurant?

JoJo Restaurant

I'm suppose to be going to JoJo's tonight. Has anyone been, if so how is it and would you recommend it for a birthday? Thanks

I finally get to do my review of the city. I've been quite busy planning for my next adventure, but here goes nothing.
I didn't know what expect when I touched down in San Francisco. For the person I was traveling with it would be their second time, so I decided to go with flow of the day. We touched down around 9:30 am and took a taxi straight to the our hotel (Hotel Metropolis, it wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst either). My friend thought it would be cool to have mexican as soon as we got settled, so we ditched the bags and headed over to Nopalitos like SFBING suggested. The food was very good. The vegetables in the burrito I had were fresh and they weren't overcooked. The flavors came together nicely, we truly enjoyed it. We didn't go out for dinner we just order out and the place was pretty good (i forgot the name of the place). Saturday was in my opinion the best day for eating. I didn't want to seem like I was choosing every place we ate so i gave in for Saturday's lunch which was at Tarantinos on Fisherman's Wharf. The seafood was extremely fresh, and we were also provide with a bit of comedy. There was a man sitting on a crate hiding behind a branch scaring passing tourist and locals.

Good Eats

No problem, I can't wait to get there. As soon as my friend and I drop our bags off at the hotel (Hotel Metropolis) we're headed to an open house @ the Art Institute. Then it's off to the Mission District!! I'll definitely take tons of pics of everything we eat.

Good Eats

I will definitely go do research right now. I'm looking for a place that does good fired seafood.

Good Eats

Thanks

Good Eats

Quick question how good is the seafood in the area? I feel silly about asking the question because this is the "Bay Area" I've been looking over this thread and I don't remember if anyone mentioned seafood.

Thanks

Good Eats

Thank you

Good Eats

Thank you, when I return I plan to do a review of every place I attend. I'll also try to take plenty picks of the food I eat.

Good Eats

I'll be there 5 days but I'm still gonna take your advice and nix the rental.

Good Eats

I've never entertained the out of town "Philly cheesesteak" it's laughable to think they'd be able to duplicate what we have here.

Good Eats

I truly thank you guys/ladies for your opinion. Clearly you all know San Francisco better than I do. What I'm gonna do is re-read all of your posts again, check out the different menus. I'd like to treat this trip (food wise) like a sampler and try to try some of everything mentioned in this thread.

Good Eats

I am a director, this trip is strictly for pleasure. I just want the opinion of good people about great places to eat. If something comes from the trip I'd love to create a documentary profiling your city because it look like a fun city to visit.

Good Eats

To be honest, it's not about high end, it's about finding good food. If I spend less but get a great plate of food that's what I'm looking for. Putting what I'm willing to spend might've been a bit much. I just don't wanna look like a tourist aimlessly walking into every store asking "can I see the menu"

Good Eats

I'd say I'm more of the hole in the wall or scene-y type. I wouldn't mind a good steak either. What is the Bay Area known for when it comes to food?

Good Eats

Sorry guys, I'm from Philadelphia, restaurants here are a bit pricy. I'm guessing $45-50 per plate is a bit much? That means I just might be willing to rent a car and do a bit of moving around the Bay Area. I'll be visiting for 5 days so as far as food goes I'll be trying a lot.
