sushi don.

nothing else in the city like sushi gen's sashimi lunch.

i'd make the drive to shunji's for their lunch. the best $40 you'll spend on sushi.

Taylor's Steak House

i really like the bar at taylors in ktwon. very good, stiff gin martinis at like $8 each. cool old school vibe. not on par of mastros but i think i have much more fun here.

DineLA Meals Reported -- July 2014

it's a good dish though i think the tonnerelli (sp?) at gusto is better. had them 2 days apart. my dining companions agreed.

The Early Bird Special at Flores and The Ladies’ Gunboat Society

went there about 2 weeks ago. one of the most memorable meals i've had all year. it's shocking that it's pretty much not full even at peak times considering all other restaurants in the area have people waiting outside.

DineLA Meals Reported -- July 2014

i don't think the spaghetti is a half portion for the tasting. i think that's the actual size at $24 too.

i could be wrong but i remember trying it a la carte and then as an addition and the portions being about the same. just half the cost during dine la.

Flores on Sawtelle

just ate here for the first time and i'm a bit shocked it's not getting too much word of mouth.

had a spectacular trout. it was a whole, deboned trout with a cornmeal crust. it may be the best dish i've had all year.

didn't get a salad but saw some coming out and they looked pretty good too.

well worth checking out.

The Pastrami List 2014

good pastrami. it's cured and smoked. don't think it's steamed. very smokey. i'd put it towards the list. the one time i had big mista's pastrami, thought smoke city had it beat.

I'd reconsider. The value for the quality is unmatched IMO.

Tentative Dining Itinerary for June Vacation

i'd go to sushi gen. you can get their sashimi dinner for $26 or their sushi deluxe for $35.

if you order ala cart, it can get expensive quick but the dinner meals are quite the bargain for the quality.

Lunch in the Granada Hills/Northridge area ...

go to joe's cafe but you may want to call and set something up. the place is tiny and it's the type of place where you order and then they bring the food to you.

very good brunch/lunch fare. if it was in the westside, there would be a lot more word of mouth about the place.

Temple Garden

good hand made dumplings and hand pulled noodles. nothing close to it in the area. can get slow since it's a mom and daughter operation.

Yet Another SF Hound Seeking Advice

never said they're the most consistent but when they're on, they're as good as most.

if anyone else is doing a smoked bbq style pork belly, it'd be nice to know

Yet Another SF Hound Seeking Advice

since you're already at the gcm, check to see if horse thief has their smoked pork belly. it's typically a special thing but when they have it, it's pretty good bbq. when their brisket is on, it's pretty damn good too.

ISO restaurants in Woodland Hills, CA

if you have a car, drive a little bit. i'd recommend itzik hagadol, hummos bar and grill, and tampa gardens.

and if you want to blow it out on a bit of sushi, go's mart.

2 days in LA for fish and tacos

cacao is great. i'd also recommend mexicali which isn't too far from glendale. if you can get to east la, mariscos jalisco for their shrimp dorado tacos. while in east la, might as well stop by los cinco puntos.
