Weirdest Ice Cream I've ever had...

I had lemongrass and kaffir lime ice cream with fish sauce caramel @ Salt and Straw in Portland, Oregon.

I had to get it because I love fish sauce haha. The first bite was good but I couldn't eat the whole scoop lol. It was just too funky.

$14 burger at the Playground in Santa Ana

Just tried the burger last weekend. It wasn't a bad burger but definitely not worth the $14 price tag. Didn't even come with fries. The quality of meat was pretty good but they use some sort of caramelized onion compote that was too sweet. Guess all the OC people on yelp never tried Father's Office or 26 Beach...

Macarons in Los Angeles?

Second J.L. recs. 'lette is my #1 (Little Tokyo branch). #2 would be Frances Bakery. Both store's macarons aren't too sweet and pack a lot of flavor.

Favorite flavors
'lette - earl grey
Frances - green tea

guess I love my teas...

Young Thai Coconuts? Close to Downtown?

haha i love LAX-C! And those coconut cakes... mmmmmmm.

Davy, you should try Bangluck Market in Thai Town. Definitely within walking distance from the Hollywood/Western metro station. If you don't find it there, there are a bunch of smaller Thai markets on Hollywood Blvd.

10 Best Dim Sum Restaurants In Los Angeles

I'm with you Liu! King Hua has dethroned my past #1, Sea Harbour. I've been to King Hua about 4 times and will be going back this Saturday for an early Mother's Day dim sum. Their har gow and pineapple char sui bao are out of this world!

Sea Harbour has been really inconsistent lately... I went 2 weeks ago. Their chicken feet were really bland. The beef tendon/offal dish had an perfume-y off-putting taste to it (and was no longer spicy, different recipe for sure). The har gow skin was kinda mushy. Maybe the only item up to par was their tripe. Sad times... long live King Hua!

10 Best Dim Sum Restaurants In Los Angeles

Yeah this list is pretty spot on. I went to Sea Harbour recently and thought their dim sum was a bit off. Hopefully it was just an off day. They made a slight change to menu though. Any 'hounds know if they hired a new head chef for dim sum?

Been going to King Hua more often now. Their food is pretty amazing :)

Eureka Burger - Claremont

How funny. I tried Eureka Burger last night since the Back Alley isn't open on Sundays (bad business especially during football season). And I agree everything was great. That jalapeno egg burger and truffle fries were BOMB. Great beers on tap and we just made happy hour so our beers and appetizers were discounted. Very happy with our meal.

The service was a bit slow but I had only an hour for dinner. Had to head over to Fox Theatre for Foster the People :)

Dine LA Restaurants

Thanks for the tip TonyC. I might have to try Craft this year as well. I did Fogo last year and it was a great deal.

My only other good DineLA experience was at Kiriko. If I remember correctly, it started with an appetizer sampler: hama hama oyster, carpaccio (maybe kampachi) and a house-made tofu. Omakase was next. Around 7-8 pieces. Great cuts too. I remember blue fin tuna, scallop and toro were served. Then green tea creme brulee for dessert. Everything was delicious and all for $44. The single piece of toro alone had to be around $8 right?

And I'm with weinermobile. Scarpetta in my sights.
