Four days in Los Angeles

Hello,

I'm sorry not to have answered before! ..

In fact, we have very little frequented restaurants because movements by car with circulations were very, very difficult ...

Public transportation in San Francisco are very practical! .. Los Angeles impractical! ..

We still eat at "The counter" where they make great burgers.

We have also eaten at the "Farmers market" (Sandwich..)

I'm a little confused to have support a long topic that
ultimately did not benefit me a lot and took for you all a lot of effort to writing.

As we were staying in a private home, we were near a Whole Foods market and we bought meals for the diner(which were excellent ...)

We have eaten Chinese at San Francisco and Mexican at San Diego... It was delicious ...

I address you again my apologies.

Excuse me but there is confusion in my mind (or rather at my translation! ...)

You mention "This Would put you very close to Bludso's new venture / partnership with The Golden State. Bludso You might recall Being Mentioned for HAVING's probably the best barbecue in the LA area"

Then you mention "The new eatery is on Bludso's La Brea"

If I understand correctly, The Golden State is not the same place as the Bludso's. ? ...

The Golden State is a good place to drink a beer or eat a burger?

Thank you for your long exposure!

To be precise, we arrived in the evening on May 6 in Los Angeles and we leave early in the morning on 11 may to Las Vegas.

So yes, the choice for Father's Office is not at all suitable! ...

Instead of Father's Office, I've chosen to eat Mexican at El Pollo Loco (although noted on Yelp): http://www.elpolloloco.com

As you advocate we eat lunch at Zengo. I found that there was also "happy hour" although they are poorly positioned (4-7 PM daily)! ... Goal is the principle of "happy hour"! ...

If I understand correctly, the Golden Gate is associated with Budso which opened in the neighborhood of Brea?

If this is so I will replace Philipps by this address that is much closer to our accommodation. The adress is 426 North Fairfax Avenue ?....

I will also avoid Gabriel Valley for the evening and eat at Kang Hodong Baekjeong

Can you please confirm?

thank you

Thank you for the information! ...
However, since you mention that their dinner is very good I stop my choice on this restauraurant! ..
We eat "Dim Sum" in San Francisco.

As promised, I give you the choice reserved for restaurants located in your town.

For the evening we arrived as the restaurant is located on the path we try http://www.moquecarestaurant.com recommended by the Servorg.

We have adopted the following rule: lunch fast enough (hopefully it's good anyway) and in the evening we will enjoy to more elaborate dishes and typical.
 
First day: Lunch: http://www.fathersoffice.com/ in Santa Monica
                Dinner: http://beverlysoontofu.com/

Second day: Lunch: Restaurant in http://www.santamonicaplace.com/
                     Dinner: http://www.shamshiri.com/

Third day: Lunch: http://www.thecounterburger.com/
                           : Dinner: Phillips, 2619 Crenshaw Blvd

Last day: Lunch: Restaurant in Farmer's Market 6333 West 3rd Street
                  : Dinner: Dim sum in Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant Rosemead Blvd

Hoping to have made ​​the right choice.

You understand, all that the elimination of some of your proposals was inevitable and that when we do not know the places it is very difficult.

If you have any comments, I am waiting to read.

Thank you again.

I have noted the adress.

But it is far enough from 2912 Garrison St! ..

Is that the traffic is fluid from Garrison St to 2625 Lemon Grove Avenue?

Thank again.

Do you have any references on which restaurants have this dish?

Thank you

Thank you MACtac

That does not mean anything in French! ..

I can translate your expression: if you become low with your money !..

Funds in french is a word that is rather a designation reserved for accounting or banking.

In French we could possibly write: "If you're almost dry" (financially)

Hello and thank you all for your answers ! ..

Jet lag is important and it is difficult to communicate ! ..

We are in indecision: either take the car or use the bus.

What is the most rational means of transport ?

Regarding the things we plan on doing in San Diego:

- The downtown (Gaslamp)
- Coronado
- Seaport Village
- La Jolla
- Mission Beach
- Balboa park

It may be a bit utopian to want to visit as many sites so little time! ...

Precisely according to these sites, and without targeting the high-end restaurants (this is the end of our trip and our budget will be consumed almost) what restaurants (Italian, burgers, mexican, bbq) can you advise us.

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

I asked this question on the forum dedicated to San Francisco and LA and I had
many answers.

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/886451
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/886775

I hope you will also contribute to the same question that I put on the website of San Diego
Thank you in advance! ..

We are French and we will stay a few days in San Diego in May 2013.

We will stay at Dolphin Motel, 2912 Garrison St.

Do you know any restaurants located near the periphery of this Motel? ..

We can use our rental car, but we do not want to make many kilometers.

Of course, we want to avoid upscale restaurants and favor those who could help us discover the different flavors of the city: American (Burger),Mexican, Italian, Chinese ... (French, we know! ......

)

Thank you in advance.

Excuse our bad English ...

Many thanks Jase,

I've added to my list restaurants that you submit.

I am trying to achieve the synthesis (I consult much Yelp also) and it takes me a lot of time!...

I cannot fail to go all in order to have your validation on the various choices that I will proceed.

Thanks again

If the time is late when we arrived in Camarillo, we take the 101/134 highways and we will stop in one of the restaurants that you mention.

Stop at Camarillo from Santa Barbara and drive up the coast on the way into LA .

A little advice bulavinaka!.

We have to book an afternoon to go shopping and we hesitate between two complexes:
-Citadel Outlets 100 Citadel Drive, Suite 480 Los Angeles, CA 90040
or
-Camarillo Premium Outlets 740 e. Ventura Boulevard Camarillo, CA 93010

I have found that Camarillo was much more distant.

Without you concerned about the distance, what would you choice complex? And in function of your choice, which (always tipic) restaurant would you recommend for dinner before return to our host...

It is true that we could stop the day of our arrival in Camarillo as our previous stop is Santa Barbara. But I imagine that given the scope of the complex, it will be very difficult shopping starting at 4 pm!

What do you think?

Oh my!... I'm really surprised by your editorial quality that is fluid and refined! I see that you have taken time to write your review. I thank you again.

You could also and possibly ask to the Michelin to recruit you!...

I'll build my list based on the advice you have please send me again.

I do this quite rationally. I make my list in database software based on input (to unanimous trend) that were sent to me.

Then, I add with following fields: address, GPS, Web Site link and finally the theme of the restaurant.

Then I export the list to the level on the sdcard of my Gps and my Google Maps personnal cards. I always take my Netbook when I go on a trip. In this way, I still have my information with me

When I have finished this task, I will not miss to send the link to my Google Maps map, presenting the places for which we have programmed a visit as well as the points of the restaurants located approximately next to visit places.

I hope that the moderator will not remove the conversation!

I wish you a very good Sunday!...

I'm sure in any small villages in other states of North America outlying cities and where there are still vast grazing, farmers still proceed as in France to sell their milk.

Thank you.

This is what I saw actually consulting the various websites available on this topic.

We are not big eaters ! ...

What I am proposing is to establish a schedule of visits that we made ​​during our stay in Los Angeles.

We opted to eat lunch quickly and enjoy the evening at dinner. I mention places respectively to visit the restaurant that we seem closer and more acceptable.

I think this table set in the coming days. You give me, as usual, your opinion insightful that I propose.

I think this is the correct approach .. I do not want to "get lost in the labyrinth" of the huge amount of proposals received.

If I calculate right, I see that you are very "early bird"....

Jealous but mostly nostalgic. No ? ...

Myself, I am very attached to traditions! ... That is why I am a big nostalgic.

However, be assured that my look is not desperately immobilized towards the back for all that.

Expressed well ?
