Birthday Bao?

Where's the best place to get a tower of birthday bao? Can be SGV, LA, OC...distance doesn't matter as much as getting good bao for my friend's birthday. Preferably not too sweet.

Thank you so much!

Edit: added photo of what I'm thinking of...

New to Rosemead: Dalian Small Stone Restaurant

Thanks! Could you please help me find it, though? Yelping "Shan Tseng" just gives me Yang Chow in Chinatown...

New to Rosemead: Dalian Small Stone Restaurant

Any idea where I can get a suitable replacement for their stir-fried ox tripe with chilis? That dish was my crack, and I'm super-bummed I didn't get to have it one last time...

I think this place has sadly closed. Sign's down, something about Old Shanghai in its place.

Singaporean Restaurant To Open in Koreatown Location Formerly Occupied by Venezuelan/Mexican Restaurant

Koreatown, Little Armenia and Thai Town most interesting restaurants?

Grainivore has closed :(

Grainivore CLOSED--or just relocating?

Thanks for the update! This sucks, though, because that was some seriously good food.

I wish him/his family the best in selling it off. Please keep us posted here, if you hear anything.

My best friend is Singaporean, and while I never had the chance to bring him to this one, his sister joined me once and loved it.

Where did you and your friend go? Any recommendations?

Grainivore CLOSED--or just relocating?

Apparently closed around mid-May. Curious if anyone has any info on them, though, because last I heard from their staff they were looking to relocate once the lease ended in June.

So, closing mid-May isn't too surprising to me, but I hope they come back somewhere better because DAMN that food was good!

Best fried chicken restaurants or take out

Kyochon in K-Town, 6th and Serrano. The whole chicken with spicy sauce is the current reigning champion of my fried chicken tastings.

Alhambra: Yazmin--Closed? What's going on?

Facebook and Yelp both now list Yazmin as "permanently closed"

Can anyone verify??

Looking for Oyakodon Tonight

Nowhere near your areas, but Ducks Restaurant in San Gabriel just off of Rosemead & Las Tunas consistently has my favorite don.

I prefer katsudon, but the oyakodon was good, too.

Korean Fried Chicken update?

Maybe their 2 month remodel will help address the consistency issue. Can't wait for Kyochon's reopening in K-Town on 2/4

Looking for a New Filipino Restaurant

I hope your friend is doing well despite the closure. Whoever was doing the cooking there had some serious talent, and if possible, I'd be very interested to know if he/she went to work anywhere else.

I'd never liked Filipino food until I tried that place...hence my resistance to trying any more steam table places. Please thank your friend for making Filipino food accessible to me--that spicy pork sisig was life-changing.

Sorry, not interested in food from steam tables, but thanks anyway.

Have you eaten at either of these? What do you recommend? I'll try to check them out, but I always appreciate hearing any personal experiences you might have.

Thanks!

I heard about this one, and also noted the polarized reviews. Any personal experiences, Chowhounders?

SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate - Where?

Didn't see it at the one in El Segundo; I looked!

Looking for a New Filipino Restaurant

Thanks! I looked at pictures on yelp, and it looks pretty similar to Salakot, so I'll have to try it sometime!

Anything in particular you recommend? Also, do you know if they're willing to make things more/less spicy? Their sisig looks good, but not enough peppers!!

Looking for a New Filipino Restaurant

Loved Salakot Sizzle & Grill in Historic Filipinotown, but they closed awhile back. Anything in LA that's similar in food quality and flavors? Specifically NOT looking for a takeout place with food sitting in steam tables all day like Nanay Gloria.

Thanks!

SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate - Where?

I used to be able to get this at Whole Foods, but none of the several I've been to seem to have it anymore. Ditto Sprouts, Erewhon, etc. Anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get it? Near Downtown LA, but willing to travel.

Thanks!
