Impressed! Just got a table at "fully booked" Bestia

the fried chicken is better than good, we got lucky cause we were seated right away, normally, theres a long wait,

but the biscuits its served with are amazing, only other biscuits ive had that are just as good are the heavenly biscuits from gulstream in century city

Taco Zone, has anyone tried it?

taco zone is right. they have been around for at least ten years. i first had them when they were selling out of a hot dog cart in front of the car wash across the street at 75¢ a pop. i was convinced back then that they spike those bad boys with heroin cause i was hooked

depending on what time of the evening you go, chances are youll have to wait in line

I recommend everything they serve, its all good, if you like asada then youll love suadero. my personal favorite is tripa and buche, FUCK YEAAAH!!!!!!

Where to Buy Live Lobsters

most markets keep their live oysters refrigerated or on ice which is good, the seafood market at redondo pier keep them in circulating salt water, which i would say is better, and they have a variety to choose from

live lobster is available as well

1. the italian combo from Mickey's deli in Hermosa Beach is great eating. It doesnt come with mayo, so if you like mayo (i do) you have to request it, but it really doesnt need it. the meats are sliced to order and the bread is as fresh as fresh bread can get every day along with all the toppings, if you go solo, order the small one, and get an order of small potato salad, its made in house and very delicious, and dont go on a saturday, theyre super packed.

2. Santa Monica Seafood Market has an outstanding lobster roll, i accompany it with a dozen of their oyster selection and a strong beer or two...i spoil myself

Im pretty sure any good steak house can do that for you upon request.

Beef is typically not pre-seasoned because it'll dry out, and the butter part is just the same, its done during the cooking process. I dont recommend you do the do it yourself dive bar thing, they just dont serve good quality product, unless of course you dont care about that

The burgers at Dog Haus (Pasadena Biergarten)

So the question now is, do you have to go back and would you tell someone you gotta go to this place?

about 1/4 west of the 110 on the north west corner of the intersection. it totally doesnt fit with the neighborhood but you will very soon forget about your surroundings, and i was in my car the entire 5 seconds

I drove by it today around 4...WOW! It looks fucking bad ass from the outside, i can only imagine what its like on the inside. Theyve definitely started something on that side of the 110 without a doubt, and just in time for the new high rise

K*Town - Full Bar (and Good Food) Ideas?

Western pocha & the other one i cant remember the name but i'll look it up. Ive read great reviews on byul but ive yet to have it so i cant say theyre better but they were good.

Manna was good in comparison to other korean bbq, then again, in korean bbq, you cook your own meat and certain sides so its kinda hard to say it was bad, unless the meats are very very bad quality.

We didnt ring the bell cause it was us and one other table which had only two diners. The lack of attention we received was totally not acceptable considering there was four people in the entire place.

Our vote on this place sucking major ass stands.

Yes, manna isnt pochang but we did get service, and that automatically puts them obove byul

K*Town - Full Bar (and Good Food) Ideas?

Finally walked in to byul pocha last night.

In trying to find this place in recent past, weve walked in to two other similar spots that were not byul but were actually good. We couldnt find it cause their sign is entirely in korean and i couldnt remember the address

Now, if restaurant service is anything like a credit score, then they have excellent service, or like the car commercials say, "well qualified"

There wasnt any service at all, we were seated and then for the next 20 minutes everyone was gone. I was tempted to serve ourselves a pitcher of their finest and coldest but then decided NAAAH!

This place sucks. We walked out and ended up at manna korean bbq which was unexpextedly good
