going on a diet is more likely. too many burgers, had to trade them in for roasted chicken. he's probably working on an epic post on vegetarian food.

oumi sasaya makes it with tempura chicken if you want to try something a little different.

Why do bakeries that cater to white folks...

Blame it on Wonder Bread.

Food truck wedding at a beach?

food trucks are kind of slow, so you'd need a bunch of them for a wedding. i wouldn't recommend it.

Exile Kiss Blog

no, that's not it! "the exile kiss" is a cyberpunk novel by george alec effinger.

i'm guessing that exilekiss just got burnt out on blogging.

Ramen Festival Coming to Torrance

ok, i partnered up with a couple more early birds and tried kitakata, orenchi, and ikemen's otafuku ramen burger. later, i swung by monta and tsujita which had very short lines.

the standouts were kitakata and tsujita. both had good noodles, chashu, and soup. the ramen burger tasted like okonomiyaki, and the "bun" was squishy. why is this thing popular?

getting in early helped a lot. kitakata was the only stand that had a long line once you got in, but the line outside went around the building to the tv station and it was barely moving.

Malbec in Pasadena: a short appreciation

like all argentine restaurants in LA, their chimichurri is not "real" chimichurri. i like their food and service, though!

First time in Torrance with my picky brother

take him to marukai as well as marukai pacific market in gardena, and mitsuwa in torrance. threads & needles is a japanese run clothing shop in old town torrance that he might like. for a real trip, go to volks, maker of ball-jointed dolls.

all of the stalls in mitsuwa's food court have a display case of plastic food, so it's a good place to take a picky first-timer.

Who makes good BBQ Baked Beans?

i like it only with converted rice. it needs to be dry and toothy, imo.

Best organic take out food in LA?

not among the best, but it's convenient: whole foods. even the stuff that isn't labeled "organic" is made from almost all organic ingredients.

Good Chinese restaurant NOT in SGV?

yeah, either go to the sgv, or drive down to gardena on western.

OK -- good restaurants for a foodie mom in her 80's in Redondo Beach for Mother's Day dinner. Suggestions?

Any reports on Soba Sojibo?!

i've heard it's pretty good, but i put it off until it gets warmer. not really one for soba when it's served hot.

!8 year old goddaughter for "cool" LA dinner

cool can mean a lot of things. i get the impression that her preferences are different from the stereotypical celebrity, wealth, and glamour obsessed teenager, though i'm not sure about maroon 5 and timberlake....

!8 year old goddaughter for "cool" LA dinner

i imagine she'd like something nyt magazine-ish, like l & e oyster bar (stick to the oysters) or bestia.
