Where can I buy Bundaberg ginger beer in LA?

For Tim Tams, you can go to Cost+ World Market. http://www.worldmarket.com/product/in...

The Swinging Door Texas BBQ Re-openned

Sweet, I was bummed that I never got to try it before and now I'll get a chance to partake. Thanks for the quick report back.

The Swinging Door Texas BBQ Re-openned

I took an alternate route to work today across Vanowen from Burbank and noticed a sign posted outside, "Now open". I have never been, but remember there being some good reviews on here. So, if you've been missing their Q, it looks like they're back. Anyone that gets a chance to try it before I do please post your experience; also, if you'd care to post some past experiences here for reference that would be cool, too. Name is still the same, I cannot confirm same ownership.

Eateries Around Cal State Northridge?

As a former Matador, I also recommend 3 places already mentioned: Falafel Palace, Mandarin Deli, and My Hero.

Thanks for the review. Gotta stop by soon for a double espresso and to pickup some whole bean Black Cat.

Review Allesio-Simi Valley

Ok, thanks for the clarification; I've only been going out to Simi for the last couple of years.

Review Allesio-Simi Valley

Don't you mean near where Hudson's was? Red's is still there (I think) and Alessio's isn't actually occupying the same space that Hudson's was. I miss Hudson's good shakes and decent food.

P.S. Thanks for the review of Alessio's. I was wondering about them and whether they were associated with the one in Northridge.

Ikea ice cube trays [moved from General Topics]

These trays have printed on them "water only". So, would putting egg whites in these be hazardous?

TIA

Searching for wheat bran

I've got a no knead bread dough rising at home right now (my first bread attempt ever). They recommend wheat bran on the towel to keep the dough from sticking. I couldn't find it at Smart & Final or Trader Joe's yesterday. I work in Van Nuys and live in Echo Park / Silverlake. Can you recommend a place that will have wheat bran that's on my way home? TIA

No pressure, just the most important pizza of my life

BJ's may not be the best, but two steps down from Pizza Hut?!?

Romantic yet affordable?

Nicole put an extra period at the end. Try this: http://www.chezmimirestaurant.com/mai...

I have no experience with this restaurant; just helping out with the broken linkage.

Whole nutmeg

I didn't think that the supermarkets would have it; but I called Ralphs in Glendale and they said they carry it. Once again, chowhound lends a helping hand. This place is awesome. Thanks again.

Whole nutmeg

Can someone please tell me where I can get whole nutmeg in Los Angeles. Perferably near Glendale or Burbank. Is this something that the grocery store will carry? Maybe Trader Joe's? TIA
