Mahi Mahi Seafood Grill - just about perfect (for casual reasonably priced SaMo seafood)

They had Trappey's hot sauce too, but with that salsa it is not needed.

No apologies needed, I want to try Sea Salt as well. This wave (pardon me) of less expensive seafood places has me hooked (pardon me).

Louisiana Mouth and I both enjoyed the "cajun" seasoning.

I spoke briefly to the owner, or at least a nice and knowledgeable manager, who was there and running the show. A part of me did want to inquire about his fish sourcing but the bigger part of me was enjoying lunch so much I didn't want to spoil it, if you know what I mean.

Doubt it - they looked like generic Costco-ish tortillas.

Just to clarify - I am not saying MMFG is going to win James Beard Awards - but I think it is as quite a good taste and value.

Super impressed with this place.

Wide variety of very tasty fish (we had an excellent snapper and a mahi mahi for lunch), grilled or fried, served with rice/veggies/fries and a piece of lightly garlic'd and buttered grilled bread for about 10-13 bucks.

DON'T miss the fantastic (and super HOT) house made salsa.

Every neighborhood needs one of these. It's like the California Chicken Cafe for Fish.

Red Medicine Announces It Will Close at the End of October

As always Alex's was great.
UCLA was an excellent venue - much better than Sony.

Lefevre's Beef Tongue Lettuce Roll was my favorite bite.
Props to the great Gumbo and Boudin from the Louisiana guys too.

Great shot, Dommy! - I am surprised that one travels so well and have, actually, avoided it out of fear it will disintegrate rapidly.

Parking in Thai town

That neighborhood - like so many in LA - used to be fairly easy to park in but not now. So many side streets are resident-only and so many viable spots have weird restrictions, white curbs, etc. If I wasn't so busy fighting a never-ending battle with the ABC over useless alcohol regs, I might have time to begin a never-ending battle over draconian parking regs.

or

Orleans & York

I give Orleans & York the win on Shrimp and, LJ the win on Roast Beef

OY has a bigger Zapp's selection but LJ has Tasso, sausages, Jambalaya, chickory coffee, and authenticity.

Bar Toscana, not half bad. Pretty good perhaps.

I like the place well-enough but it does drive me bonkers that I cannot order a cocktail while at Toscana, or carry my BT cocktail over to dinner when Al Michaels is done eating, and my table is ready.

Shi Hai, i haven't heard mention of this joint on here just yet….

hound-worthy food near carwash @westside

I have never been to an LA Carwash that didn't have an aggressive Upsell Man. If there was one, it went out of business, I guess.
