Don't get to Commerce and don't eat lamb but those sure look good. Sort of like all the "rolled taco" places in San Diego. Might have to take a drive.

Gee WHIZ

An edge on Boo's makes it a no go for me. I thought Boo's was terrible. Granted, I went there after Ricky's Fish Tacos but I think Philly West is much better.

Date Shakes

Without driving all the way to Shields Date Farm in Indio, does anyone know where I can find an excellent date shake in the Los Angeles area?

Gentleman's Butchershop & Delicatessen (a very mini-review)

I replied almost a year go, that this place was good but had a B Health Dept. rating. I drove by a couple days ago - a B rating proudly displayed on the window. I don't think the Health Dept. waits that long to reinspect after a rating less than A, do they? It's a meat place. It must I be an A. Guess I won't bother again, anyway.

Quick Cook Barley

Thanks to both of you. I have looked there but didn't ask. Must have been in the wrong section.

Quick Cook Barley

Been looking for this on and off for months, for a recipe I have. Not at Whole foods, Bristol, Gelson's, or any of the large chains. Anyone have an idea?

The Counter Hermosa out. Pacific Beach Fish Shop in

I think the problem is related to the quality of the food. Compared to other burgers in LA that have taken it to the top, their burgers were just mediocre - at least to me.

Eatily

Eataly in Manhattan is excellent. If they open here and you don't like it, don't go. More room for me. The porchetta sandwich, alone, was worth the first class airfare.

Jelly Doughnuts

Bob's in the Original Farmer's Market, with powdered sugar, not granulated. They have both.

Where can I get Egg foo Young?

Just getting back to this but I should have noted that I ask for plain egg foo young, gravy on the side.

Fried Catfish

Is there a really good cornmeal-fried catfish in the Los Angeles area but not the Gumbo Pot?

Matzo Ball Soup

My favorite comes from Bristol Farms. That's right.

Where does one go for authentic Americanized Chinese food?

Genghis Cohen: The closest I have come to the egg rolls I have had in New York and where I grew up, St. Louis. Yes, for some reason, St. Louis had those pebble-skinned egg rolls made with pork, shrimp, cabbage, etc.

Where do you buy your condiments?

Monsieur Marcel, at the Original Farmer's Market. Extensive.

Fried Ravioli, where to find?

You're just wrong.

Fried Ravioli, where to find?

Toasted ravioli in St. Louis used to be great. I still love it but its always frozen now, at least the places I try when there. Crab Rangoon can be excellent made by the right place.

Western Smoke House on Overland in Palms

Not sure it's still owned by the same people but the original owner opened The Texas Rib Joint on Pico, just West of Westside Tavern. Twenty-five years ago it was excellent. They shut down with a sign saying closed for remodeling and never reopened. Some time later, a friend said the Western Smokehouse was the same people. Sure enough, I went and it was. Even then, it was not as good but over the next few years, I would go just to get a taste of smoke. Last time was probably ten years ago. Just kept getting worse. Greasy, fatty ribs. The sides were a joke. Really too bad.

Gentleman's Butchershop & Delicatessen (a very mini-review)

Just went there for the first time in a couple years and saw the change. Seems cleaner than Victor's, although they had a B rating. Normally don't patronize under an A but I needed some ground beef for burgers. Decided to buy two rib-eyes and have them ground. Best home burgers I have had in a long time, and I have used
steaks for burgers previously. Also bought their potato salad, which I liked a lot, and one of the vegetable salads. Good, too. I will be back but I hope that rating gets to an A soon.

15 years ago, the Coop was one of our favorite pizzas. Something changed a long time ago and we stopped going.

Cheesesteak...Capriotti's or Phillys Best? This may start an interesting debate topic...I hope!

Sorry, I didn't finish. While not consistent, I like PW the best so far. The meat is very flavorful. The bread is soft, to soak up the juice. Never get red sauce on my Mushroom Cheesesteak with onions but I do use plenty of the mildly hot chiles they have. And I like their tuna hoagie and the freshly made egg salad hoagie.

I think a Big Mike's is supposed to open in the new construction at the corner of Sepulveda and Washington Blvd.

I don't like Capriotti's at all. The bread is bad and I think the meats are low quality.

John O' Groats has a very good, fresh roasted turkey club.
