rowland heights breakfast?

Yi Mei for the OG,

Shi Hai for a complete stealing of recipes off the OG. Choose wisely.

Also, Hacienda Heights just got a western-fusiony-Taiwanese coffee/brunch option; Bleu Cafe opens at 11AM. And I'd eat that shit over Bob's ass any day.

No. 1 Charcoal BBQ - Monterey Park

catering to the Mainland Ferrari college students set. the skewers are overpriced for what it is, and the place, besides the mutton soup, is evocative of your login name.

they're having trouble with their beer license.

Which OO KOOK?

OO-Kook Alhambra does NOT focus on BBQ, but is a tang/jiggae house.

If you want the AYCE BBQ, you have to stick to KTown/San Gabriel. This is a key difference.

Sushi Gen at the sushi bar: The Non $15 Sashimi Platter review (Part 2)

I hope that this review of Sushi Gen will convince you and your friends to try the sushi bar at Sushi Gen.
----
Not at all.

Sushi Gen, still the basic bitch of LA sushi. And if you paid $100 after waiting in line for this lunch meal, then... I don't even know what to say. Still relying on toro & uni to woo the plebs after all these years (yes, I've done the bar; we've all done the bar).

Anyone been to Craft lately?

Still one of the best pastry teams in all of LA. They roast their own coffee beans for coffee ice cream, (and coffee service), all the produce are sourced from farmers markets, and technique is still about perfect. And you always get to end with petit fours and a bag of granola the next morning.

Two highly rated Burbank/Glendale restaurants...

re: mini kebob/adana

after doing a quick precursory tour of that 'nabe, i've settled down to Old Gyumri. the wait at mini kebob kills me. adana has an expansive menu, but Gyumri has massive jugs of draft beer and fantastic grilled lamb.

true, but then they do this:

"(In case if some of the waiters/waitresses don’t understand, please ask for the manager)"

smfh

and food writers start going off about supposed "secret" menu.

How are my choices?

$59 won't go very far at Bestia/F&F/Saint Martha if you're a drinker.

Tiki bars? And tiki food?

I, after a quick read of historic tiki scene, was under the impression tiki food = '60s American-Cantonese food. At least for LA.

Zam Zam market closing in Culver City

So a Bangladeshi says Watan's biriyani's better than ZZ's. Why am I not surprised. ZZ's relocation is so non-news it's not funny. Kruang Tedd's biryiani is twice as good, and 400% more accessible. Available with beer tower.

K-town Cream of the Crop

an important criteria is: before, or after midnight, ie. before, or after complete inebriation.

soban/beverly soon dubu falls in the first category.
