El Coyote Redux

I was not aware of a new menu.

The margaritas have always been stellar. Sit in the bar and groove on the tufted naugahyde walls found only in that area.

LA Weekly 10 Best LA Bagels

A frustrating list. It's always hard to find a good bagel in LA.

FWIW, New York Bagel [not mentioned] is a favorite. In the mimi-mall housing SugarFish in Brentwood on San Vicente.

I wish these places opened earlier so I can buy them in the morning before going to work.

72 market street type food ???

Sorry about that typo.

I used to use abebooks about 20 years ago but love the customer service at Alibris. Both companies use the same composite of sellers so it's very little difference.

Cheers!

I have bought dozens, if not 100s of books from Alibis. Very dependable.

In fact 72 Market Street has an entire cookbook of dishes for fans.

it's the real deal. Mine is languishing in the garage until I unpack.

Here it is:

Curry leaves (fresh or dried) in LA eastside?

I bought a bunch of fresh leaves just last week at India Sweets & Spices on Los Feliz.

In the produce department. You may have to ask them to point them out.

Need help! Large group (12-14) birthday dinner in los feliz/silverlake!

Link'n'Hops in Atwater Vllage would definitely fit the gastropub bill.

A NICE LITTLE TACO EVENT PERHAPS

If anyone else had not heard of "Grand Park", then you may want to know where it is. It appears to be a park used for daily yoga sessions and lunch gatherings for nearby office workers.

The Taco event is on their online calendar:

damn good cake?

I realize this is an old thread … but I went out for a small snack this afternoon and ended up at Proof Bakery. i had a slice of their Almond Frangipane Cake.

Once again, after eating their cake, I am certain the Proof Bakery cakes are among the best in the world.

Red Fox Cheese in LA

I stopped by TJ's and bought more of what I bought last time.

In big letters it says: WITH CHILI AND RED BELL PEPPERS and it is laced with lots and lots of pepper flakes and flesh.

It is delicious. I have attached a photo I took of my purchase and it was bought in Silverlake where they had lots of it.

A bad photo next to reading light:

Best tacos/burritos in Glendale, 2014 edition.

You would think Glendale would have a long list of taco places but i have not found that to be the case.

El Sauz is my go to place with the Asada tacos and burritos fitting the bill. Has anyone tried the quesadilla?

I also hit up Yuca's Hut which is close for me but isn't Glendale. Love the Conchinta Pibil items.

I'm curious if anyone has tried any of the El Tapatio locations. And I'm apt to try out the Tacos Casita El Carbon soon.

Red Fox Cheese in LA

Very interesting. The wedges I had bought there over the last couple of months were excellent and a little different. i loved them.

I just noticed this though: that Trader Joe's Red Fox is a Limited Edition. Found here:

Red Fox Cheese in LA

Are you sure it's not still there?

I could swear I saw Red Leicester just 2 or 3 weeks ago. I would think any good cheese monger should have it.

Call ahead.

Xcatic Peppers

Wasn't there a consensus that the Xcatic Peppers were interchangeable with the Chili Guero which are almost everywhere?

One from left field: is there such a thing as a craft/boutique/premium Worcestershire sauce?

Every once in awhile I place an order from Fortnam and Mason. I always include an order of their "Gentleman's Relish".

Read their description, it is wonderful. I buy it also for the beautiful blue porcelain boxes which I use for trinkets ... rings, etc. But the relish is almost all anchovies, dill, etcetera. Yummy.

You may want to fill out your order their wide selection of jams and preserves, or their tea collection.

I bring this up as the Gentleman's relish is a precursor to Worchestershire i believe.

Your Go To Comfort Spot

Thanks.

I'm familiar with Garage Pizza who apparently owns Jay's and is right next door.

The hamburgers looked good. [hoping]

Your Go To Comfort Spot

Maybe some will hate me, but when they're hanging over my plate with their pierced lip and eye, I lose my appetite. I can't stop looking at the lip ... and their hands.

That was SiLA. I told them their location was the Bermuda Triangle of restaurants, I was so so fed up with them. They closed two weeks later. I hope I helped.

Your Go To Comfort Spot

Twice I have tried to find Jay's Bar. I must get an address.

Have you tried Square One in Echo Park's Boat House? And a new square one at Hyperion and Griffith Park ... with the huge duck motif.

How about Taix's?

It has loads of space and smaller rooms. And it is an alternative bands place at night.

LA Times: What's the right way to tax sugary drinks?

I thought political issues were off limits on Chowhound. I don't look to Michelle Obama for advice on anything.
