al pastor

my friend is in town and has been asking me to make al pastor but I can not find a recipe so I am willing to take him somewhere to get it.
Any suggestions of somewhere that might be good?
I live in Los Feliz.
Thanks

JONS market deli

Not sure. I usually go to the one on Vermont and Hollywood but have been to others and they all seem to carry similar items.

JONS market deli

not to mention all the local pita breads and other breads, tons of different charcuterie, 5 different types of feta at least, and my personal favorite; the locally made puff pastry in the freezer section that is better than any brand out there!
Cheap olive oils, wonderful produce, and other good smoked fish to boot!

Best "Huevos Rancheros" in Los Angeles...?

Having had Huevos Rancheros at least 100 times while living in New Mexico; it is important to point out what the ranchero sauce is made from in which over there is made from strictly chilies and I have found here the sauce tends to be tomato based.
Does anyone know of a place that serves it New Mexican style?

Real Chicago Pizza/Hot Dogs, where?

Wow!
Those were the best part of Flukey's.
I remember chewing those as a kid!

why isn't Good ever any good?

I agree. I visited a few Sundays ago and everything my friends and I shared was dull, tasteless and the service was so so.
I had a pretty good breakfast there when the place first opened but it was expensive.
I am surprised the place has lasted as long as it has!

Best sharpening service for wickedly sharp?

I also suggest Ross. They have always done my knives justice.
Then walk across the street to the farmers market and have a fantastic lunch while you wait.

Percolating Dissent

Funny because I bought my first percolator earlier this week and bought some decent beans and I disagree. My first cup was amazing to say the least. Slowly simmered, perfectly balanced, and piping hot!
Mark, when was the last time you had a good old fashioned cup of percolated coffee?

REVIEW w/ pics: Dim Sum at New Capital Seafood

I loved your dim sum madness blog with great pictures intact.
I still have yet to go out and try some of these places but when I do I will be using this as guide to my dim sum dining!
Now if I can just get some friends together and go....

I need a restaurant recommendation halfway between los feliz and torrance

I am meeting an old friend for dinner on saturday night and we are both vegetarians. We want to meet somewhere in the middle. Does anyone have any good restaurants they would like to comment on?
Please keep in mind we both still eat fish.
Thanks to everyone.

Texas Queso Dip

Okay chowers.
You can have your velveeta and ro-tel. I myself will go this route in my laziness and even have in the recent past.
BUT I have also lived in the great state of Texas and worked at a very popular diner that made queso by the truckload every other day and it was NOT made with velveeta. It was made with real cheeses, milk, and fresh pico de gallo. It was a bowl of heaven...
Oh how I miss the nights of lots of chips and queso but it my thighs are thanking me for living here in Socal.

best fish & chips

Thanks_
I forgot about fish king but as I have said before; I am not looking for traditional. I am looking for breaded and fried fish. It brings me straight back to my days in Chicago while attending culinary school.
I would get a bag of what was probably scrod that was BREADED and fried.
It made studying fun. I am just looking for a version of it. Not the english pub style.
Too bad about Michelia's....

soup dumplings?

Thanks to everyone and their thoughts.
I did go to Joe Shanghai in chinatown-NYC then later to the Manhattan location which wasn't nearly as tasty as the chinatown version and since this was my first time eating them; it just seemed like a bun of heaven to me.
Now that I am at home I will be indulging in soup dumplings galore around socal.
Woot woot!
