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.

Bread and Butter

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.

ROUND UP -- Andouille in L.A.

One other lead: In my wandering around south LA I saw Park's Meat Market on Manchester and 11th near Crenshaw. The have quite the selection of products from Louisiana along with many fresh and smoked meats. I'm not sure what they have for sausages.

ROUND UP -- Andouille in L.A.

Has anyone tried the sausages from Pete's on Jefferson near Crenshaw? They seem to supply some of the noted cajun/creole restaurants in LA. While they don't have andouille in their regular rotation, you can order it with some notice.

First Dunkin' Donuts Lands in Santa Monica

The thing about their coffee was they had a standing rule which they would throw out a pot after a certain time and make a fresh one. And in the 70s and 80s that was revolutionary in coffee which is where the got the rep. Now with all the coffee options, not so much. With their central baking set up, the donuts don't hold a candle to any you can get at any corner donut shop in LA. They no longer make the original Dunkin Donut, the donut with the handle, since it needs to be hand formed.
