i don't think anyone thinks it's the height of a culinary achievement but there seems to be a distinct difference between the egg rolls found in ny and those found in la. just trying to see what that might be.

i'm looking for the classic chinese egg roll that i'm sure is ubiquitous in ny but uncommon in la.

i think of it like any halal cart. pretty common in nyc but until very recently, impossible to find in la.

i think more than anything, trying to see what everyone is talking about. i know there's a nostalgia element. just trying to see if i'm missing anything. not big enough qualify as a meal so i figure i can try it somewhere.

having some beer in the coolers may allow for a later crowd.

i had some concerns too because it was empty when i went around noon. within minutes, the place was packed. the po boys are excellent so hopefully, the place gets a foothold.

OK... Count me as a fan. Think the oyster po boy is legit.

Taylor's Steakhouse dinner tonight

i'm a fan. the wedge. a culotte. a stiff gin martini.

it's not mastros but the place fits like a nice warm sweater.

i've come to realize it's a place you either love or hate. there seems to be very few in the middle for this place.

Eagle Rock Italian Bakery

got to say that this is a damn fine sandwich in the area. a large for $4.75 has got to be one of the better deals for an italian cold cut sandwich.
