Han Dynasty of Philadelphia

I have lived in LA for the last two years and boy do I miss Han Dynasty! Why can't I find good Szechuan here?! Even in an area with such a high concentration of Chinese (San Gabriel Valley) it lacks in good Szechuan, though there is a lot of good dim sum! But that is so far from LA too. Chinatown here is pretty terrible.

Coastal Road Trip from LA to SF... Food Ideas help!

Sparkling is a great idea that I didn't think of. I am actually a big fan of Taittinger champagne and their sparkling. Thanks for the help! A lot of people have mentioned Grace's Table so I think I'll check that out as well.

Thank you, those are exactly the types of places I like. A far as wineries, I would say we want to hit up about three that are close in proximity that many think are "must-go's" We like wines in the style of red Bordeauxs and Rhones. Some places with beautiful scenery, for me this will be pretty casual as we have one 10 year old. Bottles in the realm of $30 are what we are aiming for, not too sure of the prices of the tastings, most seem to be about $20-$30, which is okay. We are also hitting up Paso Robles which seem to be a bit less expensive. Any suggestions would be nice. But again, good food is my main focus, my son can eat me under the table in sushi, juicy pork dumplings, and crab legs. And so adventurous eating is fun for him too. Thanks again!

Hi, I am planning a road trip from LA to Sonoma/Napa in June. Some of our stops will include Paso Robles-wine tasting, Pfeiffer State Beach-camping, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Francisco/Oakland-2 nights, Sonoma-wine tasting. Do you have any restaurant/food stop destinations that you could recommend? I have only been to SF once so any suggestions in the Bay area would be nice. Some cheap eats would be nice, but a couple of splurges would be okay too. I live in LA and I would say I am an adventurous eater, we like anything from traveling down to San Gabriel Valley for good Szechuan/dim sum, to Korean to taco trucks Thai street food at Night+Market, to more upscale like Ink, Animal, and Osteria Mozza. We like food from all cultural directions. In particular- good cheap oyster/crab shacks are my ideal locales! So let me know if you can help, also any vineyard/tasting rooms suggestions would be much appreciated. We are just looking for maybe three wineries that are close in proximity that are "must-go's" We like wines in the influence of Bordeaux and Rhone. Locations with breathtaking sceneries but without pretense (not too expensive) Thanks!
