But who was there before the people now there? And before them?

Where to find thin sliced bread for tea sandwiches?

I don't know any stores in LA that carry Pepperidge Farm, except Ralph's in the Culver Center, near the corner of Overland and Venice (maybe all Ralph's stores.). They carry two types of wheat bread and now and a potato bread and a sourdough. They are not sliced as thin as PF thin sliced white bread but after removing the crusts, they might work, especially the potato bread.

Some help here? There is a Japanese owned bakery in a large outdoor shopping center in Irvine. I don 't remember the name but they have square, thin sliced white bread. Maybe someone knows the place.

I don't know anything about this food or experience but I am curious. Are the photos you included, of the entire $250 meal.

Hitt up the Palm before it movies, i haven't even been yet myself.

The Gigi salad, Shrimp Bruno, chocolate cake and/or Key Lime Pie are still worth it to me.

Should Orange County have their own board?

Yes, to easier and faster viewing.

Wexler's Deli - Yesterday

I might give it one more try, on your recommendation. And you are correct about letting the place know. I usually do but did not do this time. Yes it could have been a staff member(s) fault. Two, to be exact. The person preparing the sandwich, and the person serving it. If I go again, and that happens, I will scream loudly without profanity. On the other hand, I have Langer's not too far away and at GCM, I have La Moreliana and Egg Slut. BTW, I forgot to mention this: before my friends and I entered GCM, we were outside admiring some Police and their horses. I saw J. Gold walking out of the market with what may have been his son.

Did you have a pastrami sandwich, and if so, was it chopped into hash? My experience remains as I noted.

I am not impressed with celebrity chefdom.

Wexler's Deli - Yesterday

Exactly. I don't think I am tough to please because I don't appreciate chopped up scraps. I'll stick with Langer's, where I have never been served chopped crap.

Wexler's Deli - Yesterday

I guess they saw us coming. Chopped in small pieces. Never should have happened, even once. Will never go back.

And it was an odd tasting mustard. Eating at GCM wasn't really the problem. The incredible heat was the problem. I live in Culver City and I like air-conditioning, so the 105 degrees that it felt like, was a bit too much for me. I'll go back when it cools off. I have a story about Belcampo Meat Co., too but I will post that separately.

Not crispy but still excellent taste. Good citrus flavor but not overpowering.

Wexler's Deli - Yesterday

I was just reading about Peter Haller's go-to places. One was Wexler's Deli. Had a photo of their pastrami sandwich. Nice photo. Thick slices like Langer's. Unfortunately, that's not what my friends and I had yesterday. We were on a GCM tasting tour. The pastrami was chopped fine and incredibly fatty. Yeah, fat is good but not at a 50 to 50 ratio. At least not to me. Langer's still beats everyone, and edges out Katz's because of Langer's incredible rye.

We did have good burgers with eggs on them at Egg Slut. And a great carnitas taco at the place right next Egg Slut, right at Broadway. Sorry, I don't remember the name.

Looking for Real Churned Buttermilk

And what about whole milk buttermilk, or isn't that possible? Only thing I see is 1% and 2%.

Best guac, chips and salsa

El Abajeno, Culver & Inglewood, has good guacamole and salsa. Ask for the chunky guacamole or you will get sauce. Chips are not terrible but better purchased elsewhere.

Pommes Frites, mar vista farmer''s market, sundays.

The cue stand is Dray's BBQ. Try the boneless pork and ask Andre to chop it up for you. He likes to call it pulled pork but whatever he calls it, it is good. He never sauces the meat, preferring to include a container with your order. The mac 'n' cheese is good, too.

Los Angeles Pastrami Club

Suspicious photograph, too, as I have never seen Langer's owner smile.

Wexler's Deli to Open April 28 at Grand Central Market

What's wrong with the Langer's location?

Flautas

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.

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.

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

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.
