Relocated from Venice to Whittier

Besides the Bottle Room, you have another option of going to the Rustic Monk in Uptown Whittier on Greenleaf. Gastropub that has a nice selection of beers and wine. Solid food. Excellent service.

FYI (though I'm sure you know since you live close by), there is a Sprouts on Whittier and Santa Gertrudes that makes for a good combo grocery trip along with TJ's.

the flintridge proper

I think the cocktails are good and the atmosphere is pretty cool in a cozy-kinda way. Great service too.

Killer Shrimp will return!

Memories of "slurp slurp slurp slurp slurp" come to mind. Can't wait.

That's a new one for me. I gotta try Pharo's out and compare the two.

Had the pastrami chili cheese fries at The Hat in Monterey Park last week. They still knock it out of the park (or maybe that's just my diet being knocked out).

The MOST AMAZING/TRANSCENDENTAL burger that I wasn't expecting: Glencrest BBQ in...... Venice???

Damn. I can't believe I haven't been yet. That'll be my to-go to place for the 4th of July weekend.

Chow Gold Line - rails to good food

I concur. However, you'll need to be very patient and be ready to wait a while for your food and drinks (service is slow).

Din Tai Fung-Vegetarian POV

Maybe they need to create veggie-friendly dishes a la Happy Family in Monterey Park? That would be great but I don't think that'll be happening any time soon. Their cooks look busy enough as it is.

MAY is National Burger Month(?): any suggestions (current please)?

Went to Tops recently and had their Kobe Bistro burger. Still pretty good in my book.

Rice balls and Ginger Bean Milk at Yung Ho Tou Chiang

Thanks you two. Now it makes sense to me.

Rice balls and Ginger Bean Milk at Yung Ho Tou Chiang

I've tried looking for this place but for some reason I still haven't see it as I drive by, and I'm somewhat familiar with the area. Is it across the street from 101 Noodle? If it's plainly obvious where it is, then maybe I'm not so familiar with the area as I had thought. lol

Alhambra

There's a Vegan restaurant on Main (by the new Alondra Hot Wings) called Loving Hut. I haven't been but have been wanting to try it out. It looks cute from the outside.

This is insane. I know this place. I pass by it all the time and it always looks closed or empty... glad I read this.

More New Dumplings

The pork dumplings with fennel and lotus sound tasty.

This is not another best sushi topic

My fave is Pancho (the weightlifting chef) but he's only there certain days. Pancho isn't his real name, btw.

Have any Chowhound Faves Broken Your Heart

What a bummer. I went to Daisy Mint and meant to do a little write up but didn't get a chance. We had the wonton appetizer, pad thai, and the name of the soup escapes me but all the food tasted good to us. The tea was aromatic and delicious, and the servers were efficient and friendly. Anyway, sucks you didn't have a similar experience.

The place that broke my heart was Hungry Cat, but I will go back again someday.

Best cheap Food in LA.

One of my favorite stops for cheap eats: the taco truck/stand on Olympic and McBride in ELA. In my opinion some pretty kick ass tacos de lengua and tripas.... I ask for 1 tortilla only to make it "lighter."

Ceviche

I like theirs too. When I'm in a ceviche-only mood... I get one fish and one shrimp... never been disappointed!

Babita... but call ahead of time because it's not currently being served (I tried ordering it last week).

Anyone Tried the Churro Milkshake at the Counter

That's a great question... I'd like to know as well. On a side note, I tried the Garden Burger at Astro Burger in Montebello. I asked for the dressing on the side so I can dip it.... it wasn't bad at all. Oh, and you have a choice of ordering it on a wheat bun.

Father's Office, What's the big deal?

Here here! Good for those who like this place, but I'm glad that there is a diversity of opinions so that others can go with a balanced view of people's experiences...... Life's too short for iffy attitudes, so customers beware!

I think Nata's rocks -- they are super friendly people too.

BIG MIKES BURGER in bellflower . . .

Agreed! Just a small warning for those who bite into that hot link. They don't call it hot because of the temperature... it really is spicy yo! Not complaining mind you, but thought I'd throw that in there.
