Pizza recommendation in Tucson

you probably should stick to mexican. the only really good pizza in tucson is brooklyn pizza (which is NY style so you obviously don't need to go there) or magpies, which is marketed as "gourmet" pizza

Ever eat a bug?

when i was in high school and not very adventuress when it came to food, I went to coldstone where my sister bought me some ice cream. They had a promotion where if you paid the dollor or 2 for a topping of chocolate covered crickets and ate them in front of an employee they'd give you a coupon for a free ice cream. Wanting to pay my sister back for her generousity i got the crickets and ate them and i gotta say not bad. I think of anything is cooked in the right way (or covered in chocolate) and you have an open mind you'll enjoy it.

Costco - Mexico coke

When it's made with sugar it's soo much better and better for you too. corn syrup is so bad for you but it's in everything sweet in America. it sucks

Alone in West Hollywood

I agree a sushi bar is great to eat alone at. I'm partial to Matsuhisa on La Cienaga north of wilshire

Casa Bianca vs. Antica Pizza

Casa Bianca is very disappointing. Living on the east side and hearing all the hype then finally taking the time to wait in line there makes the mediocre pizza not worth it one bit. But let's face it, great pizza in LA is almost impossible to find. I haven't actually heard much about Antica but I'll be sure to check it out

Tucson Mexican food

my favorite place always has and always will be Pico de Gallo. It's on south 6th ave @ 35th or 36th st. They have amazing carne asada and the best beans ever. Plus if you're lucky they'll have their green corn tamales that are the best I've ever had!

dim sum in L.A.

Although SGV is better I still think Empress is awesome. Given I only started going there a few years ago and never got great service so I just got used to it, but I've never had great service at a SGV dim sum restaurant either
