Thanks for all your driving tips! They are much appreciated. Unfortunatly due to our schedule, we won't be able to do the lunch option.
I will however try and see, if I can make it on a saturday instead.. Hopefully that will help a little bit in relation to the traffic situation.

Thanks all, I really hope the food will be worth the hassle ;-)

Bludso's Texas Sampler - will it hold?

Thanks for all your replies!
We have thought about eating the food there or make a picnic in a park.. But we also have our two small kids with us, so that's why we will bring it back to the hotel. Our room has a full equipped kitchen, so we will have an oven to heat it up..
So I guess our plan will be to call ahead, and then pick the food up and bring it back and maybe re-heat it a bit.

I've never been to Los Angeles before (we're from Denmark, Europe), so I don't know if it will be better to take the surface streets, when driving back to Hollywood? Maybe taking Alondra Blvd west from Bludso's and the Normandie Ave north all the way up to Hollywood Blvd?
(Sorry know the last question isn't specifically food related)

Bludso's Texas Sampler - will it hold?

Will be visiting Los Angeles soon, and I'm planning on trying some good BBQ. I got my eyes set on the Texas Sampler from Bludso's - will share it with my wife though ;-).

My concern is, that I will have to pick it up, and drive to our hotel to eat it, which is Hollywood Orchid Suites. I guess the drive will be at least 45 mins. around 5pm on a weeksday?
So does anyone know, if the food will hold okay for that long?

..Another question is how long the waiting time for a Texas Sampler when you order it? Is it better to call ahead?

Bahn mi to go?

And the sandwich is still ok? How long is the time from when you get them and until you eat them?

I could see in the thread listed by zippo above, that another person also have saved a sandwich from Saigon Sandwich until later, and it was still good.

I think I will give it a try and buy some to take with me.. Are they heated up when you get them?

Langers Deli #19 for breakfast ?

I will be passing by Langers Deli in the morning during an upcoming visit to Los Angeles. I would love to try the #19 there.

But do you know, if they serve them for breakfast as well? And are they to much for a breakfast meal, if you know what I mean? :-)

Thanks!

Bahn mi to go?

On my upcoming visit I would like to try a Bahn Mi sandwich (never tried them before).

I will be taking a day trip out of town one day, and was thinking of buying a sandwich in the morning, which I could bring with me, and eat for lunch (probably around 4-5 hours later).

My question is: Are Bahn Mi okay to take with you and eat later? Or are they best eaten straight after they have been made?

Was thinking of buying the sandwich from 'Saigon Sandwich' on Larkin St., as I can see, that they open already around 8 AM.
Is Saigon Sandwich recomendable, and are they any particular sandwich there, that I must try?

Are all Hunan and Szechuan food spicy?

Thanks for all your replies! That's much appreciated..!

After reading your comments, I think I've changed my plans, and will visit Z&Y Garden and Henry's Hunans instead.

Are all Hunan and Szechuan food spicy?

I will be visiting San Francisco in September with my wife and kids.. I love spicy food, and would like to try both Hunan and Szechan food, as I've never tried it before, and can't get it where we come from (Denmark, Europe).

BUT my wife doesn't like spicy food.. At all! So does any of you expert know if all the Hunan and Szechuan dishes are spicy? Or if there any mild ones for her and the kids to try?

I'm considering trying the two restaurants Hunan Homes (Hunan food) and The Pot Sticker (Szechuan food).

Thanks!
