What's for Dinner #330 -- The Glorious Month Edition! [through Oct 18, 2014]

I love that you were able to source your own crab.
For myself I think that is taking it to the next level as a home cook.
It takes a bit of dedication to go out and catch your own protein which a lot of home cooks either don't have the opportunity or are just not willing to do.

If your in touch with your food sources it makes cooking all the more engaging to me. That goes for gardening as well.

This year off the West coast fisherman have been enjoying the best fishing in the last 20 years. Abundance of Yellow Fin tuna and Dorado have been harvested for those willing to make the short run to the fishing banks. This summer has kept many a home cook busy making fresh caught sashimi, poke, smoked tuna bellies and ceviche.

Pretty much it's easy and straight forward..
The base ingredients of the dish are onion, garlic, anchovies and radicchio and I cook them in that order. Season to your liking toss in pasta.

Everything is else is up to your own taste. Using parm instead of Romano, adding in different herbs a squeeze of lemon or tossing in some bread crumbs or panko is a option too. I'll make it many different ways adding or omitting ingredients depending on what I have in the kitchen.

I made this today from yesterdays braised pork shoulder.
Basically a Banh-ish mi type sandwich.
I also added sauteed onions and grated ginger to the meat for a little umph.

I started this about three hours ago for tacos tonight.
My favorite way to eat them lately is corn tortillas with arugula and sriracha.

Bludso's For White Peopleā„¢- first visit.

Persnickety...

Sounds like they wanted the food but were too good for the neighborhood....

If that was the case then they don't deserve the food.

Nothing personal.

So, who's going to the Catfe?

Neither your server or the cats will be engaged in the hyperbol you speak of.

So your good to go.

where can i find puerto nuevo style lobster?

I know there is a big division among the CH peeps on suggesting cooking your own but if you have any skills around the grill it is really easy make your own
PN style lobster. I spent many a days down in Baja surfing and consuming
grilled lobster back in the 80's...

If you want it that bad just make it yourself and wash it down with a Clamato and beer for OG points...

Ha you might be surprised...

I'm sure every time your in busy restaurant there is someone sitting next to you who has had some sort of genitalia in their mouth or has licked a ass or two on a regular basis and that is including your server.

Unusual and interesting ethnic markets in the Greater Los Angeles Area?

Indian Spice and Sweets in Atwater.
They also serve food.

Also a little off topic but it may have the vibe your going for is Govindas.
Where you can eat at the Hari Krishna temple.

Gentrification of Los Angeles Chinatown Continues--Little Jewel

I went there today and I would have to agree from what I saw they were serving a wealthier demographic.

Also the Po boy way great. It certainly is no bargain but the quality was there so you did not feel you were ripped off either.

If it was a little more reasonable I would probably eat there on a more consistent basis and not that they need to be. If they can cater to enough folks willing to spend that much on a sandwich more power to them....

Great Lunch Deals Downtown

We think of it as the Canters of J-town.

Costco Wild Troll Caught Fresh King Salmon

Not familiar with the term wild troll, what does this mean and how does it effect the taste or quality of the fish? thanks

How do you Spam?

Ah man, we are trying to take this first world foodie craze seriously and your being a thread killer. Time out.....

How do you Spam?

I like to take Spam and wrap it in a Tito's taco. I then take it over to Sergio to have him bless it. After that I take the creation to Harbor Seafood where I happily share it with HIro Urasawa over brunch as we discuss the latest South swell wrapping into Malibu...

LA "Musts" Tailored to a Strategic New Yorker

If your going to hit up Chego on your way to the see Los Doyers
save room for a taco if you can...
Your going to drive right by Guisados on Sunset about a mile from the stadium.
.You can knock out two places before the first pitch.

Frozen Kirin beer

We tried it at the Dodger game and enjoyed our frozen foam beer for what it is. Don't go into it expecting tectonic plates to shift in regards to flavor.

It's the same lager as before just with a snow cap. : ]

Where Should I Have Lunch?

Funny I had to read your request for cold beer over rare beer twice to make sure I was reading right. I understand though sometimes a nice lager hits the spot.

Too bad the Bucket is no more it would have been right up your alley. Good enough burgers and a good selection of cold lawn mower beer. The new place that took over has already closed down.

A little fancier but you could try the Oinkster for burger and beer.

Closer to your home is the Hinano in Venice Beach for a unfussy burger and beer.

Ojai for the weekend?

Just a heads up on Boccalis
It is a very touristy place their food is not excellent.
If they were located in LA they would never be considered Chow worthy. That said eating in Ojai you have to adjust your scale.

When my friend opened a new place in LA most of the server applicants included head shots.

Eagle Rare, I while back you were asking about bourbon recs. Glad to see you went with the Eagle Rare.

A good pour for the money.

DTLA Night Market reports?

We were all set to go until we heard there was a ten dollar cover. Is this true?

Thanks

NYers with 5 days in LA / Santa Monica over the 4th

I would switch out Tacos Punta Cabres for Ricky's Fish Tacos. Nothing wrong with Ricky's just considering the OP's miles per food gallon.

First Dunkin' Donuts Lands in Santa Monica

To me this is like living in NYC and celebrating Winchell's is coming to town.

Is just a standard chain donut shop nothing great and nothing too bad either.

Tipping at Whole Foods Bar!

If I bring food from outside the bar I tip on just the drinks.

If I have him order the dinner special for me and he brings it over I tip him like a regular waiter.

Great food and beer near Hilton checkers.

For great beer selection a spot very under the radar is Barbara's at the Brewery. A short drive from where they are staying.

This is true beer geek good and probably one of the best curated list in LA.

Warning, it is a place where beer is the main attractor over food and ambiance.

Tell them they have Hoppy Birthday on from Alpine brewing right now and see what their response is.

If they have none.... a place better suite for them will be City Tavern.

If they are into Belgium beers Little Bear may be a good choice as well in the Art's District.

Beer Belly is also a good choice.
