Romantic THAI in/near Silverlake?

Sompun is worth trying but the correct choice is Rambutan all the way.

Whole asian duck

Thanks to everyone who recommended Sam Woo - tried it this afternoon and it hit the spot. I'll pencil in a trip to Lucky's next time that I'm in Chinatown for comparison.

Whole asian duck

Hello chowhounds,
I was driving to a concert downtown and I got a little lost. While driving around I saw some whole ducks hanging in a window of an asian shop. I don't remember where they were so does anyone know of any good spots downtown to buy whole cooked duck?

Thanks in advance!

Soup in Santa Monica

Any recommendations for a place that serves great soup in Santa Monica? The closer to the 10/Cloverfield exit the better. Thanks in advance.

The Apple Pan - It's a Tourist Trap

I disagree. The burgers at Apple Pan are great. The texture and taste of the meat are what do it.

Now the apple pie there - that's another story. Way overpriced and not that good. I'd rather have Ms. Smith's apple pie from the freezer at Vons.

Lunch in Santa Monica

Yeah, they've exhausted the options in the Water Garden and Yahoo Center. Looking more for stuff within a short drive.

Lunch in Santa Monica

Hi,
I'm an east sider who just started a new job in Santa Monica. The folks at the new office are complaining about being in a lunch rut but I don't know the area enough to offer any options - other than Bay Cities, I've been waiting to try that.

My office is near Cloverfield and Colorado. Any good suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

duk bo sam

Hey MeowMixx,
Question for you - I just checked Hannam nvear Vermont and Olympic w/ no luck. I looked in the refridgerated section near the hot foods but didnt see them... I asked and they didnt know what I was talking about - directed me to ramen style rice noodles. Are they in the refridgerated section? Or dry - what does the bag look like? How big is it?

duk bo sam

Thanks for the info StivKaye - that's exactly what I was talking about. I've seen the translucent Vietnamese type but not the Korean variety... IMHO my marinade is getting pretty good but it would sure be nice to have some duk bo sam to wrap it in.

duk bo sam

Hello,
I wanted to buy some duk bo sam - looked all over HK Market and didn't find any... Am I blind or can someone tell me where to buy it?

Thanks in advance!

Korean Fried Bean Curd

I was talking about the pockets but I'd be interested in hearing about both.

Thanks

Korean Fried Bean Curd

Hi,
I just got back from a korean market. While I was there I noticed the prepackaged fried bean curd and was intrigued. Any one have any recommendations on how this is typically served or recipes using it?

Thanks in advance!

Pickled Cucumbers

Anyone have a recipe for pickled cucumbers along the lines of the ones they serve at Beverly Soon Tofu? I could eat those every day!

Thanks!

Favorite pickles of Los Angeles

You are dead on about the pickled cucumbers at Beverly Soontofu. I was just about to post to see if any Korean markets sold something similar.

It's funny - but for all the more upscale places I go - no one beats Popeyes.

Moochi cheese

Sake House has a mochi cheese appetizer - sorry I typed moochi before when I was in a hurry. It's the mochi as described above with cheese inside and either fried or deep fried. A japanese friend told me its a very common pub food in Japan. It's very good you should check it out. I believe they buy it frozen because of a conversation I had with the waitress there.

I feel ya. I've never really ordered delivery since I moved here. I was feeling lazy the other night and had to settle for Papa John's.

Moochi cheese

I love the moochi cheese appetizer at Sake House on La Brea. Anyone know where I can buy these frozen. I've looked with no luck. One of the asian markets possibly?

Where is the best place to buy clams (ideally little neck) in LA? Any one have a seafood market or spot to recommend?

Thanks.
