It's time to play MR TASTER'S **NAME THAT PASTRAMI SUPERCHALLENGE™**!

Still guessing Lenny's deli. I had hand cut pastrami a few months ago and it looked similar as do the rings. Plus the plates are the same.

Did I follow the rules? :-)

LOL! Thank you!! Are you saying Texas Best burns everything? I wish there was a place to get those burnt ends you see on MVF and DDD. Always look so good.

Ok so you said photo was taken in LA. county. can we assume it was also taken at the restaurant as opposed to you taking it home and putting it on a plate?

Always wondered about this place and also Texas Best on Riverside. Just moved to SM from studio city so now both places are a bit of a trek (maybe when I drive to Daichan I can stop for BBQ too :)

They have commercial indoor smokers. They almost look like ovens. They were on DDD and they showed Guy Fieri how they smoke the pork for the pulled pork 16-18 hours.

Neither the brisket nor the pulled pork had BBQ sauce on it. The brisket had a smoke ring on it. You saying they faked it?

I just went to Baby Blues in Venice tonight.

Brisket was tender and juicy. Peppery dry rub on the outside. Last time I had smoked biscuit was at Smoke City. Baby Blues was far more tender and juicy.

GF got the pulled pork. She had a home in NC and she loved the pulled pork.

Four sauces table side to choose from plus a bottle of vinegar infused with sport peppers.

Collards were not chopped much and were in a tomatoey sauce. Not bad for a BBQ joint but I prefer the soul food version better.

Yeah, this is more of a place to just kind of eat and not hang out at.

I have yet to hit up Bludso's.

Aroma Cafe Hollywood - Report

Didn't know if it is good or not, never been. But I'll assume it's good now ;-)

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.

burgers

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.

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 :-)

Fuddruckers Santa Monica (Again)

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.
