Cho Sun, Soo Won, or Kang Ho Dong?

Quarters.
Gwang Yang (res accepted).

No one else is doing better beef than Gwang Yang right now in K-town, none. And a 4-top ain't no thing.

Hipsters on Hillhurst

Ice cream filled with cornstarch made by Ohions. I don't know how to spell Ohions cuz I give no fucks.

And not just because of #GoBlue, but because these out of state artisanal ice cream guys are jokers (read: S&S using "local" artisanal(?) Rockview milk. SMFH).

I'd rather give Whole Foods for tubs of Straus than ever having to drive up Hillhurst for Buckeye ice cream.

Burger Continental Closed

much like much of Pas.

What time does a party of 4 have to get to Kang hodong baekjong on a friday to not have to wait an hour or more for a table?

why bother when you can/should go across courtyard to Quarters? (I'll cosign them craft beer taps anytime over that stupid wait and gross egg moat)

Khao Soi at Noodle Tramp (Santa Ana)

I'm genuinely sorry you live in the OC. Cuz brisket in a $13 khao soi is.. very.. Lotus of Siam/Pok Pok-esque.

Coming back for a quick visit - anything interesting in Pasadena?

uhhh.. yah. Or you can just drive down Fair Oak and GTFO of Pasadena for better... everything.

Coming back for a quick visit - anything interesting in Pasadena?

You should definitely get a car, if not just to GTFO of Pasadena.

I mean, if the best thing in Pas is Lunasia (for white people) and some half-assed egg salad at EuroPain...

Head out to boyle hts some taco stands (I like Soto guy for suadero), East LA for al pastor (Tamix at Pep Boys, Atlantic), Monterey Park for the most OG Chinese breakfast (Fortune No 1), etc. etc. The only thing good in Pasadena is the playground behind Kidspace, and Bistro LQ's cheesecart.

Khao Soi at Noodle Tramp (Santa Ana)

"Next time we would just opt for the vegetarian"

How is this possible when khao soi base is coconut milk + chicken stock? Or is this some kind of new OC sorcery?

Thai in LA - less spicy options for the kids?

skip WDML, Palm's, Sanam Luang,

do Pailin, luv2eat, Lacha Somtum.

Order things like sai krok Issan, Issan pork jerky, khao soi, somtum, etc., none of which are spicy.

SGV: Duke Bakery update (?)

亮點 #1: popular Chinese alarm company opening Singaporean bakery franchise.

#2: ERS owns their own building in El Monte.

Good thing too, cuz the crispy milk filling in 85 Deg polo bun is basically non-existent as of this past weekend.

Fried Chicken in Orange County?

I'm just curious when the last time everyone actually had Knott's?

Salty beyond believe, over fried and not particularly better than say... Popeye's. A complete rip-off for those actually choosing to dine-in.

Ode to The Godmother

always thought only SC kids could afford cars (and parking, and getting carjacked). did things change after the 90s?

oblig food content: Godmother is for Californians who want to pretend they're eating East coast hoagies/subs. No condescension implied, just a moral conclusion.

... written by college students stuck living in Westwood Village, where restaurants (except 800 Deg) go to die.

Kokekokko [Update] - the restaurant moved to a new location

yes.

panuchos + cochinita pibil. they should've built the new playground at that intersection instead.

Can you recommend me a good Pizza Restaurant In Downtown L.A?

The best pizza in town isn't in DTLA.

But for a cheapass, the best $4 pizza in LA is avail in DTLA:
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1006605

800 Degrees DTLA also has $4 pints during happy hour, so bf can get lit on draft beer and completely forget about the fact that he's not at "the best pizza in town".

not sure wtf being Taiwanese has to do with anything but... Shakey's has in Taiwan since the.. 80s. #mojopotatoesforever
