Titos vs. Cinco de Mayo: Tale of 2 Tacos

Also, note that CDM has terrific handmade guacamole. What my family now does is order the guac at CDM, and while it is being made, we walk over to TT and order the rest of the meal. In addition, this allows you to park in the CDM lot, which is a big plus because the TT lot is a disaster.

Best Chocolate

Trader Joe's is a good call. They carry some Sharfenberger and they also carry a line of single origin chocolate that is excelent (I buy the yellow label). They also carry Droste, which I always fond satisying. Better yet, the prices are very reasonable.

Upstairs 2 - Another Rave

I had a similar experience - very inconsistient food and not that interesting. However, the staff was terrific and the wine choices were interesting and affordable. So, I will definatly give it another try.

What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?

I do not know why, but Tom Bergen's comes to mind. It is solid and the bartenders are often good listeners. The comfort food of bars.

Enough of the praise ... what's the 5 WORST of LA?

I have to say I am not a big fan of Becaon. I think it is highly overrated. Also I think the food at Ford's Filling Station is underwhelming, although the atmosphere is fun.

Almond Croissants with MAXIMUM almod paste; where in town

I recommend La Dijonaise in Culver City. They have terrific almond croissants. They are flaky with just the right amount of paste.

Zankou... ???

I agree completely. Have you used the sauce in any other recipes? It might be good on a sauceless pizza.

baby shower recs?

You know, La Serrenata on Pico has a separate room that I have always thought would be nice for a shower. In addition, I have been to an enjoyable shower at Joe's in Venice. Both have very good food.

Fresh Wheat Pita

I always find good fresh pita at the Elat market on Robertson and Pico. However, the market may not carry wheat pita.

Liberty Grill

Has anyone eaten here yet? I work nearby and was wondering how the food is and whether the place has a good bar?
