Roy Choi's POT

To avoid parking charges in that neighborhood, take the purple line to Normandie/Wilshire station which is directly across the street, otherwise you are SOL. For our first time on Friday at 9pm it was only 20 mins to get 2 seats and the counter.

For the longest time you still could get the Dunkin Donut made fresh in store which has a little handle for Dunkin The Cruller Twist was the other donut they had to make by hand.

But I'm not sure if any of them are still made anywhere anymore.

Chichen Itza and Magnolia Bakery

In some Yucatecan tamales, the masa is strained giving it that Superfine gelatinous texture. You had their Colado which is the one they prepare that way. They also offer a baked Tamal and a non strained Banana Leaf one.

Hat's Pastrami Chili Cheese French Fries

No, since fries do not have a shelf life. Buy, consume-buy, consume

Best Pho in Hawthrone?

Saigon Dish is our favorite. Other than that we head to Little Saigon in the OC.

Chicken safety

I would buy from a fresh chicken place like Exposition Fish and Poultry 3759 S Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90018 The chickens are process on site. Also I would have you look into FODMAP sensitivities which would be similar to Gluten intolerance but would include things like onions and dairy etc.

Dulan’s On Crenshaw -- Pass the Pork Chop

They had nice corn flavor but they were premade as pucks and a tad on the dry side. I'd give them a 6.5 out of 10

Dulan’s On Crenshaw -- Pass the Pork Chop

I will add some info. It's 2 portions of the main for the dinner size plus 3 sides and 2 better than average corn bread pucks. They wrapped them up quite nice. I went there from work on my bike. Since the bag was hanging from my handlebars on the 2.5 mile ride home over bumpy streets, it was swaying like a hammock in a hurricane. but as you see from the photos they arrived none the worse for wear. Also they filled my water bottle of sweet tea so I had it in a better container for travel. It was quite good.

L.A. Dish of the Month, August 2014 -- Nominations

Nosh just a note. The original intent from Chow was Neighborhood of the Month. I do understand why we prefer Dish of the Month but I like to see it switched up Every once in a while. Our foray into Koreatown sparked some great discussion and recent posts about K-town food have gone beyond Parks and Ondal 2. Remember it is only for a month and we can then get back to something like DEEP FRIED FOIE GRAS of the Month.

GCM is Getting The Best Ice Cream Parlour

Personally I would prefer Mother Moo's but it might be that any of the LA places mentioned were not ready to expand.

GCM is Getting The Best Ice Cream Parlour

Jose If he were smart could move say to the corner of MLK and Western [Not too different from GCM of 15 years ago] and significantly lower his rent. Plus, he would serve multitudes of Latino and African American Kids who use the park and 2 schools nearby as well as a 6 ft Dark Curly haired Irish American who's access to Ice cream comes in the form of ratty old vans which roam the streets.

Bread and Butter

He was working at DTLA Cheese in GCM and Dommy was ecstatic to see him He should be there so ask at the counter when you get there. I haven't been to GCM in many moons and it will be a few more weeks till I can get there, but when I do I'll try to check in with him.

Servorg, Have you actually seen him at Mar Vista recently? The last time Dommy and I saw Chris, he was working at DTLA Cheese. He'd put Milkman on indefinite hold since it wasn't quite paying the bills. Other than that he is amazing with Cheese and Butter. He cold smoked some butter once and it was wonderful.
