Alternates to Torishiki

We ate at Yoshicho in Gotanda. Loved it. One of the dishes was ground chicken over rice with a barely poached egg. It was a standout. Very friendly and accomodating as we were 30 minutes late in the usual lost tourist scenario.

Dim Sum in Sunny Isles

It's Triumphal Palace in it's heyday, not quite Elite. I will forever pine for my beloved Sea Harbor.

Dim Sum in Sunny Isles

Finally a place in South FL that brings back the authenticity of the best dim sum I've had in the SGV just east of LA. Every thing was spot on, service was great.

Intense, Porky Ramen Soup Noodles - L.A. Gets Delicious Tonkotsu Ramen at Tatsunoya (For A Limited Time) [Review] w/ Pics!

Loved the Ramen, like being transported back to Japan. Tossed in a couple of pieces of spicy cod roe, delish.

In Florida, Snook is a protected species. But it is one of the best eating fish, it was a rare treat to have it at MC.

Looks like my hotel is right in this area. Could an English only speaker order here?

Inexpensive in Westwood

I love Feast from the East too, in fact I had lunch there on Saturday. But I wouldn't describe the chicken as juicy. They must put it thru a special Shredder because it's shredded within an inch of it's life. It is all white meat chicken.

Best Pork Belly dish?

Agree, I thought the pork belly with kimchee at Animal was a revelation.

Fresh Conch

Be careful. The conch on the east coast is Queen Conch. What they call Conch here on the west coast is actually a whelk.

Last Minute Wedding Cake Planning

Kings Hawaiian Bakery in Torrance did a friends wedding. Loved the airy crumb. I know the cakes are very reasonable and I think they deliver.

Wafers they serve in some ice cream shops

They are called gaufrettes. I'm sure you can google the receipe. They are sold at most gourmet markets and because they are so delicate are sold in a tin.

Finding New York Biali's In Los Angeles

Gelsons sells a bialy that is really close to what I've had in NY. I'm sorry I don't remember the name but they sell them on the bread aisle and also in the freezer section.

Grand Prix Weekend

We will be staying at the Hyatt on Jeanne-Mance. What are best choices in that area to pickup sandwiches, meats, cheeses, breads or baked goods to take to the race? Thank you for your help, we are so looking forward to our visit.

San Franciscans planning LA trip

Haven't eaten at Alcazar but loved the meal I had a Marouch. The raw kibbe is outstanding. Sunnin is a great little cafe but it's just that a cafe.

Does "Cut" Play Reservation Games? [moved from LA board]

I can't speak to the games part. We reserved a table for a party of 10 30 days out. They gave us a choice of 6:00PM or 9:00PM. We opted for 6:00 P and ended up having our table until almost 11:00 PM, no rushing. The whole experience from top to bottom was fantastic.

Dry-Brining a turkey

I used this method last year after many years of brining. The turkey was just as juicy as with the brining method and had a better texture. Flavorwise it was better. It was also much less labor intensive than dealing with all the water and ice. It just requires a little more advance planning. I won't ever brine again.

Banh mi che cali (Rosemead). . .help with ordering

It's almost like they push the rice onto the stryfoam container, it has meat and is topped with scallions. I think they package this four/six to a package with the nuac cham(sp) and some herbs. It's prepped in the same station as the goi cuon.
