HELP! Best WEEKDAY DOWNTOWN LUNCH SPECIALS?!

Topping this thread to see if there are any recently opened places in downtown-LA that have great Lunch Specials... been meaning to try Horse Thief BBQ...

Good lunch downtown... that can do GF

The Wood Spoon, a super-cute Brazilian place with tons of GF options.

Someone needs to start a GF Thread... stat! I'm always looking for GF options.

P.S. Agreed: soy sauce has gluten/wheat so if you go to any Asian place, you'll have to tell them to ditch the soy sauce. WOKCANO on 7th St downtown were sweethearts about my GF condition and went out of their way to accomodate!

Lunch places in Glendale

Four different types of kebabs (2 chicken, 2 beef)... all dry!

Overall I've been pretty underwhelmed by Lunch places in Glendale.

TailbackU: I tried Raffi's yesterday, but was really disappointed. Their meat was really DRY! I was surprised... especially since so many people recommended them to me.

Lunch places in Glendale

I'm topping this thread because I now work in Glendale (off Brand) and am trying to find decent lunch spots.

I've been really disappointed with the following:
1) Raffi's Place (super-dry meat kababs... yuck!)
2) I Love Tofu & BBQ (Korean food that made us all feel sleepy afterwards)

Generally I love Mediterranean places, and I'm sure there are better hole-in-the-wall places that are better than Raffi's. I basically love anyplace that has gluten-free options.

Thanks, Glendale Chowhounders!

Where can I find GLUTEN-FREE SOURDOUGH BREAD?

Does anyone know if La Brea Bakery's Sourdough Baguette is gluten-free? I'm on a strict GF diet... and wondering if I can find a sourdough I can eat...

Thanks for any recommendations!

HELP! Which Farmer's Markets in LA are best for wild fish, organic fruit & grass-fed meat?

On a quest to eat more organic...

Which of LA's farmer's markets offer the best selection for fish, meat and fruit?

Ideally I'd like to hit one stop for everything.

Currently live downtown. Thanks!

Healthier Korean restaurants (no MSG, easy on the salt)?

Thanks, peppermonkey! I avoid Chinese-MSG places as well... usually I can tell by tasting the food how heavy-handed they are.

I love Korean food, but I find that most restaurants are heavy-handed on the salt and/or MSG.

Can anyone recommend Korean restaurants that are on the lighter, healthier side? (I'm in the downtown area.)

P.S. LOVE Korean stews and soups. I also love the veggies, but I'm NOT a vegetarian... so I welcome seafood and meat.

Thanks, Chowhounders!

Where can I order an entire sugar-free (and maybe even vegan) cheesecake in LA??!!

Checked Lenny's Bakery Menu... unfortunately the only sugar-free item they have is a Bundt Cake. Thanks for the tip, though!

True... I mostly wear flats now and assume everyone walks a lot like me... I forgot we're in LA! :)

westsidegal: I think I may switch gears and go for Gratitude's tiramisu. Apparently all their desserts are gluten-free, dairy-free, and without refined sugar... awesome!

Their coconut cream pie looks pretty stellar as well.

Thanks for reminding me about that place!

Too bad about Junior's! I've been to the Factory and wasn't a big fan.

Personally I would eat somewhere in Little Tokyo and then just walk up First Street to the Music Center.

Sushi Gen is pretty rockin'.

westsidegal: Can you pre-order an entire cheesecake from Gratitude? (I've been there and thought that they only do individual servings.)

Wanted to bring a fresh, sugar-free cheesecake to a party. If it's vegan, even better... but I'm not going to hold my breath on finding sugar-free AND vegan.

Thanks, Hounds!

Where do Chowhounders buy their organic olive oil (first cold-pressed)?

With the recent news about all of the "fake olive oils" on the market, I was wondering where Chowhounders purchase their organic olive oil.

I tend to like to buy olive oil in large quantities.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Looking for a French restaurant with great atmosphere and outdoor seating.

Is Café Stella still good... or are there other similar places that are better in LA?

Thanks!

Is the Torrance Farmers Market the best for grass-fed steak and raw/organic food?

Have never been to the Torrance Farmers Market. Looking for grass-fed steak and (if possible) desserts without refined sugar/flour.

Is Torrance a good choice for finding these things?

I live downtown and thought I might save money on the grass-fed steak (rather than going to a Whole Foods). Thanks for your help!
