Bachi Burger - Sawtelle

I normally get my beef burgers medium rare. That particular burger is mixed with pork and shrimp so they won't cook it under medium. But I agree, it was a bit on the well done side for me. But the nuoc Cham sauce they served with it made up for it.....

Sorry, I knew that yet somehow I still typed it that way! My apologies!

I reheated the whole mess on a sheet pan in a 350 degree oven for about 15 mins.... The fries that were exposed stayed crispy.

Thanks PGC! And yes, they were phenomenal.... Ate the leftovers the second day, and it reheated beautifully in the oven.

Love's is still my husband's measure of every cue place we go. He has not found any that beat it. He likes the Bear Pit's though.

ETA: I just realized I'd already answered this a while back. So never mind....

Bachi Burger - Sawtelle

I had lunch there last week. I LOVE THAT THEY HAVE A PARKING LOT and its free with your receipt. It was quite busy, and most people sat inside as it was too warm on the patio. I got a seat at the bar right away. Couldn't decide so ordered both the oxtail chili fries, which were huge and could feed four for an app, and then the bahn mi burger. It was delicious. I'd definitely go back as I'd like to try the Kalbi burger next, but most of the menu looked very good to me.

Anyone saying that the name was going to affect their business must have just gotten their prescription filled. It was jammed.

Has anyone seen 'nduja for sale in Southern CA?

Can I try some first??

Has anyone seen 'nduja for sale in Southern CA?

Yes, I think I checked there a while back. Last I knew we are not allowed to import any, at least that's what I was told by a merchant who is an Italian importer..... I'm sure Boccalone's is domestically produced.

Hi Dommy! It must have been domestic though, right??

L.A. Dish of the Month, August 2014: COCKTAILS and Bar Food

Just had to celebrate my birthday with my namesake cocktail..... No bar food just real food for dinner at Mastro's Ocean Cub. Excellent martini.

"Mother-in-law" restaurant in the Valley

We've been to Tipsy Cow twice. It's mainly just burgers and shakes. But they are delicious. Kids would enjoy the shakes and you can order sliders for them if they are not big eaters..... Full bar. Small but cool decor and lively. I think they are open all day.... Or maybe they start at five, sorry, not looking at the link. On Ventura east of Sepulveda.

Quiche: Anything Close To Amandine?

If you ever find yourself in my 'hood, you may want to try Maison Giraud's version. Classic quiche Lorraine usually, but he may switch it up sometimes. Very creamy, rich and delicious with a very flaky wonderful crust. Can't remember what he charges but it does come with a fresh green salad.

Can't tell you what's in the drink, but at my local sushi bar, they used to have saketinis, but now they cannot get the Japanese mountain peach liqueur anymore to make them, so they took it off the menu :( Bartender asked what I like and I told him I like Tito's. It was very good, a little fruity, and I asked him what was in it and he said "a whole lotta love". Okay! I'm sold! Anyway, pic of the ahi tartar that I always get there that is killer. Pearl Dragon, on Sunset.

Yea, it's a killer spot. Very comfortable with lots of places to sit in groups. Couple of bars. Lots of rooms and little alcoves.
