Twiglets in Los Angeles?

Does anyone know where I can find Twiglets crisps? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twiglets

So far I've looked in the Irish Shop on Vine, and the Piccadilly British Shop in Burbank, with no luck.

Would appreciate any leads or (recent) sightings!

Western & Washington lunch today

Up the street a little is BENTO MAN, which is very much a no-frills lunch oriented place (although they recently expanded to dinner)

Basic teriyaki bowls and some katsu and Japanese curry offerings.

Is there a place in LA like Max Brenners or Ghiradelli?

not eeexactly like Brenners or Ghirsfrlli, but I would suggest:

MILK

ESSENTIAL CHOCOLATE in Culver City (or in the Westside Pavillion)

HAUS in Koreatown
YELLOW HOUSE in Koreatown (outdoor s'mores!)

I would also throw in SHAKY ALIBI (Ice cream over a leige waffle covered in crunchy speculoos, MMMMMM)

On the same waffle tip SYRUP DESSERTS in Downtown

RAMEKIN in Los Feliz

FLOAT in Pasadena

SWEET ROSE CREAMERY in Brentwood

If you want a great sundae, go to LAWRY'S or TAM O'SHANTER (bittersweet hot fudge!)

or go chocolate souffle at LITTLE NEXT DOOR in mid-city

Tacqueria Los Anaya on West Adams?

I stopped by after the LA Weekly review.

Had the fish taco (tasty! not as good as Ricky's, but still pretty damn good) chicken mole taco and barbacoa taco. I also had a Carnitas sope. The Sope was OFF THE CHAIN. Really cod taste the fresh masa in the sope shell, and it was still hot. Mmmmm

Cookie Cake in LA

FYI, Xtreme Desserts (the whoopie-pie like Cookie place, SO GOOD) will make Cookie Cakes as well. They're more like their cookies (half cookie, half whoopie pie) than just straight cookies, but the owner is a peach and you could probably explain what's wanted

Cookie Cake in LA

Snookies is really good. VERY Buttery. Very, But good. They're kind of the "gift basket" of choice in offices in Burbank/Glendale, so I;ve had my fair share.

They DO do the 'Cookie cake" because I've seen it when I've gone in (they give free samples at the retail front)

Cookie Cake in LA

Cookie Casa is very accommodating and although it's not on their menu if you e-mail them they might be able to do this.

Cookie Cake in LA

this will sound weird... but you could ask BJ's brewhouse to make you something? Like three Pizookies on top of one another? ( then You add the frosting)

Spekuloos in LA?

They didn't have it at The Grove location the two times I looked but I found it in Cost Plus in El Segundo/Manhattan Beach.

AND I found it at the Sprouts in Burbank, so... double bonus!

thanks peeps!

grocery shopping...

Good Selection is in the eye of the beholder ;) What type of food is important to you? Fruits/Veggies? "Ethnic" Foods? Cheap? Imports? Organic?

There's a bunch of the big chains around, but I like Owens (http://www.owensla.com) - but it's not cheap. There's also a Trader Joe's in WeHo.

Cinnamon Chips

So i want to make this: http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/br... and I need cinnamon chips (yes, I could probably make due with cinnamon and sugar, but I WANT cinnamon chips!

)

So.... anyone know where I can get them in the Greater LA megalopolis? I've looked at various Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Erewhon, and Surfas and no luck so far.

Best takeout food (all cuisines, all prices) near Culver City

I second SAMOSA HOUSE. So good.

Also good for take-away is:
TUB'S CHILI around the corner from Samosa House (it keeps well so it's still good by the time you get home) http://tubschili.com/

HONEY'S KETTLE CHICKEN (mmmm biscuits and chicken....

)

XOTIK *just* does take away, and they're very good (but limited hours!) www.xotikkitchen.com

TENDER GREENS and GREEN PEAS are both good for take away (although at opposite ends of Culver City!

)

Does anyone also agree with me that Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles is just not that great?

I like their fried chicken more than Roscoes ;-) .... but less than say... Eva or Jim Dandy!
