BEST milkshakes ever?

I'm definitely a BIG MILKSHAKE GIRL!!! Experience: The Counter does a good shake but you have to ask for it thick! otherwise its kinda liquidy. The Habit Burger has some awesome shakes (chocolate, mocha, strawberry), but the vanilla lacks in flavor. Milk in Beverly Hills has good shakes. Their Milkie Way Malt is epical but its one of those shakes where you feel like you're half drinking-half eating cause of all the chips. As long as you don't mind that, its amazing. The Stand also does decent shakes but once again you have to ask for it thick!

Best pickles

The fresh pickles at The Stand are pretty good. Once saw a couple of old women fighting over them until the guy brought out another tray full.

Crow is served at The Counter in Studio City

Definitely try the english muffin. It is amazing! I always get my chicken burger on it, with roasted red peppers, lettuce, bbq sauce, and then one different topping. The shakes there are the best. Chocolate and apple pie are my favorite!

Best Milkshakes in Santa Monica

Have to say that I love Counter as well. Good old chocolate and apple pie are my favorite. I really want to try the current shake of teh month tho...anybody tried it yet?

Question about California Pizza Kitchen

Absolutely love the bbq chicken pizza....its a classic and always comes out good. The thai chicken pizza is also pretty darn good. I find they are a little big for one person tho...

On, Off & On Again: The Counter in Westlake Village

Hey liu...
my oh my...i love the chicken burgers (the turkey burgers aren't nearly as good). I usually get it with the sweet bbq sauce, caramelized onions, and then whatever toppings suit me at the time. I also like their fries, nice and crispy. However I must admit that my favorite part of all is the milkshakes....drool.....chocolate and apple pie are my personal faves

On, Off & On Again: The Counter in Westlake Village

I am the BIGGGEST Counter fan ever...I checked their website and it says that this location should be opening March 2009. I really do hope so as it will be a much shorter drive for me than the Santa Monica location

university of miami food

Thanks for the great ideas! I will have a car but we don't want to stray too far from the university. I've heard about Coconut Grove or something like that worth a trip?
