Really good beef chow fun?

i think the easiest way -- and i'm not saying it's easy -- to do this kind of thing at home is to copy alton brown and get one of those outdoor turkey fryer burners, and put your wok on that outside and have at it.

What's a dive bar in LA or OC on the current scene that Mr. Bukowski would not feel out of place at if deigned to enter the joint ?????????????????????????

all this anti-h**sterism is really just another form of h**sterism.

are ramen, pho and other asian noodle soups and dishes fair game in this one? do dumplings (potstickers, things like that) also count?

thanks.

Grimaldi's in El Segun, it looks like it's open now ? Customers sitting outside, waiting carrying pizzas out, looks pretty open to me, when I drove by earlier.

i'm curious about how long you difara goers waited in line for your pizza.

Head to head matchups...how many can you name?

just curious, no offense intended:

did you spy the john 3:16 on your cup, or did you read about it somewhere or someone told you?

i am ungodly (ha) sensitive to issues like these, and the cups are about as far from proselytizing as i am from having a body like usain bolt.

servorg, there is no excuse for my pedantry, but isn't mexico (and i believe all the places you recommended serve mexican food) in NORTH america?

on the other hand, perhaps the OP made this mistake (if, indeed, it is one) as well.

if i am wrong about this, all i ask is that you don't beat me too too hard.

Scratch Bar anyone?

it's not my favourite, either, but this place doesn't have a full liquor license.
what they did was fairly inventive, but all things considered, when confronted with this sort of thing i stick to beer or wine.

Scratch Bar anyone?

i thought the food was pretty tasty. they don't have a full liquor license, so the drinks are a little...different, but not bad at all.
i'm glad i went. i enjoyed it. ate vegetables, mostly. portions not huge.

my glass of whine by choice is well known to the moderators.

i usually drink red by the bottle.

i usually make daiquiris at home, but i have no doubt any of the rum centered and/or quality cocktail joints will make a good daiquiri. i don't remember the last time i had one out. apologies.

"mental," as in "not drinking is not much of a social issue at this stage in my life" from the previous poster.
as in, it's possible i would go mental if i didn't drink at this stage of my life. or not. zoroaster knows.
