burgers

Yeah, I did take a bite after my GF removed a spot of the blue... It's a damn good BURGER... far from a meatloaf.

In my mind the only thing that makes it not qualify in my book is that I can't have them not put blue cheese on it ;-) I despise the stuff to the point it makes me sick.

Aroma Cafe Hollywood - Report

Actually, it's on Ventura Blvd (north side) at Lindley between a Carl's Jr. to the east and an urgent care to the west.

Aroma Cafe Hollywood - Report

This place, Aroma Bakery Cafe is related to the cafe in Encino, not Studio City. The Tujunga cafe is Cafe Aroma.

Thanks for the report. I've been eager to try this place.

L.A. Co-Dishes of the Month, July 2014: FRIED CHICKEN (and Chicken Fried) and FROZEN DAIRY-BASED DESSERT PRODUCTS

Pier Burger SM for some frozen custard. Because I didn't get enough calories at Pann's tonight. One chocolate for my lady, vanilla for me. I was tempted to get the special: coconut.

Bit o Scotland fish and chips

I pass this place all the time. I've wondered about it, because of deep fried hot dogs and such. Thanks for a recommendation I can trust!

PANN's... AGAIN!! Ok, I actually had a hankering for collards... But it's a better deal when you get two sides with the DotM!! (I know it's not the DotM -- but I needed to show some love to these amazing onion rings of theirs!!!)

Pleasurable Candy and Chocolate Shopping

+2 on Edelweiss.
+1 on Littlejohns.

"Sweet" at the Dolby Theater at Hollywood and Highland has everything Dylan's has and more but they will CUSTOM make you candy bars, you pick the ingredients. They have bizarre and rare candies and also guys making fresh old fashioned candy. It's really a fun place!

Fuddruckers Santa Monica (Again)

Yep, Leaded (jalapeño) or unleaded (regular).

Plus you can make a side salad with the condiment bar. I fill up on pickles (they have sweet and dill).

Fuddruckers Santa Monica (Again)

Awesome! Thanks for the tip. I can walk there in less than 10 minutes and since I can walk and burn a few cals I can afford 1 extra jalapeño nacho cheese pump on the fries :-)

Just like Dirtywextraolives said. Like if you want a Ginger Ale you can make regular, lime, orange, peach or any combo. Pretty nifty.

Where to find a fruit tart in san fernando

Portos in Burbank makes a terrific fruit tart. I know they do a large, not sure about little ones, but I assume they do. The large is available in 8" or 11" and you can order in advance as well.

There's one in Burbank. Not bad, though I always go a bit nuts on the pickles and Coke Freestyle machine.

Mexcali Taco Downtown

They're well known for their flour tortillas that they import from Mexicali.

LA restaurant not too far from Woodland Hills

There is an incredible sushi place near woodland hills, a couple of miles away in Canoga Park. Go's Mart. You can save an expensive cab ride and spend the money on an expensive but an incredible meal.

(BTW it is on Jonathan Golds best sushi list)

Sherman Oaks dining 'renaissance' - will it draw Angelenos?

If you wanted a sandwich you missed the Carving Board is on Ventura just west of Reseda.

They also have their health dept grade on the window. So they had their final inspection.

Pann's 4-PC fried chicken dinner. Really crunchy and juicy. I was convinced these folks were from the south. Awesome greens, I could eat a bucket of them. Waitress warned me they had pork and asked if that was ok and I just laughed. Great meal for $12.95.

Nowhere... too old to eat late night, lol... I'm in bed too early now :-) I guess I would go to Joe's Pizza in SM on Broadway or Colorado --- they deliver until 3:00am on Fri-Sat.

Report: Desano's Pizza in East Hollywood

Maybe you did. My GF frequented Grimaldi's in Brooklyn and everytime we've gone to El Segundo she claims it's the same.

Thanks, ha ha. It's all in the crust, no?

My only real complaint about Grimaldis is that it's a pizzeria dressed up like a ristorante and getting a to-go is a production.
