Best Mexican Homestyle in LA?

I'm really craving a home style Mexican restaurant that serves REALLY GOOD soups! Not just tortilla soup, but all kinds. Looking for it to be home style, anywhere around town is fine. I'm in SFV but I can drive within 20 miles for some good food :)

Help: ISO Best Seafood in LA!

My dad is in town and he doesn't eat meat. So I'm looking to take him to a nice dinner where he can have great seafood. Cuisine can be anything really as long as it great food. In Europe there are so many great choices especially for a whole fish etc... but here in LA I'm having a hard time finding interesting options :(

Best of Little Tokyo?

JL,
The variety I'm speaking of is miso broth at least besides pork and maybe like Orochon have sort of create your own additions where you can make it spicy etc.

I agree with you, Daikokuya is about 20 years past its prime. :/

So what are your recommends for Ramen? Or actually any noodle house? Pho, etc....

I'm thinking of making my own Pho next weekend.

Best of Little Tokyo?

So I did it! Yesterday went to explore Little Tokyo. Tried a very yummy bakery in the Japanese Village, there chocolate croissant was DELISH and so fresh. Yum.... After walking around, most recommends were empty and I decided to try Daikokuya for Ramen.

I gotta tell you, I was disappointed. 1st off I didn't realize it was a hole in the wall. Restrooms were dirty, the place needs a good scrub down and a definite remodel. But since so many people on chowhound recommend this place, I decided to go against my inner feeling and try it anyways.

The wait service was good, friendly and fast and the wait wasn't at all bad, took about 15 mins to get a table. The crowd was mostly 20's. After getting the table and looking at the menu, I realized they only service the pork both Ramen. :/ Not much variety there. I order their Ramen, my partner ordered the teriyaki eel bowl.

The Ramen arrived and it was lukewarm. :( Oh no, lukewarm?!!!! I was going to ask the waiter to get it warmed up, but he was busy and didn't get to our table for a bit, I was hungry and said what the heck. Ate 50% of it and decided to pass. Just not my type of a place. My partner said the teriyaki eel bowl wasn't bad. The portion of the eel was great and def worth trying once especially for the price.

However this place is a Ramen house and should have MORE variety. Disappointing.

P.S. After walking around, we came upon the Weller Court Shopping Center and on the 3rd level noticed a Ramen house that was packed, clean, with a bit more variety AND CLEAN!!! And the portions looked HUGE! I believe it's called Orochon Ramen and I would def would have gone here instead had I known about this. :(

No I haven't tried their cart fries. When I try a new place, I always start with one thing just to test it out before I go back and order other things, so doner kebab was that one thing awhile back. And since doner didn't pass my test, I never went back for anything else. :/

I've tried Spitz and was not loving it. Being very familiar with what real doner kebab tastes like, Spitz was not it for me. :(
