Wholesome Choice, in LA?

I love Wholesome Choice in Irvine, on the corner of Culver and MIchelson......... I've been looking for something like it in LA, specifically West LA. Is there anything like it here?

Thanks!

Sort of like those in the picture. Or, actually, exactly like those in the picture. Does anyone know what they're called and where I can get them?

Looking for a one time sushi-making lesson (bday gift)

They're booked for the weekend of her birthday. Gadzooks.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks! I found the link at : http://www.sushi-academy.com/

It doesn't look like they actually come to your house and show you how to do it; rather, you go there, and it's a one day thing. It looks slightly less expensive, which is good. I was originally hoping for something like having her and some some of our friends over, and have a chef come in and give a lesson.... but that probably would be too expensive.

Thanks for the headsup!

Girlfriends birthday soon, and I want to give the gift that keeps on giving. However, I don't even know where to begin looking, and how much something like this would run. Have any other chowhounders done something similar? And what were your experiences like?

Thanks!

Beat my street: best food within 2 miles of your house.

That's what i said!!!

Anyways, I prefer El Toro Bravo above all else. And, afterwards, Goathill Tavern!

What's weird is that I was watching the movie "Beat Street" when I clicked on this thread.

Even weirder is that I live within your two mile radius as well. At 18th and Orange.

What is a good food that can last 3 hours in a car?

My parents live in Fresno, while I live here in LA. I go home to visit about twice a month, and typically like to take home some part of LA for them to enjoy. For example, I took a cookie basket from MILK last visit. The visit before that, Zankou Chicken (which didn't last the 3 hour trip... by the time I got home, it tasted like regular rotisserie chicken. The garlic paste, though, was still sublime.)

My question is, chowhounders, is what do you think would be a novel and thoughtful food item to take home that might be capable of lasting the three hour trip home?

I wish I could take Pinks or Langers, but there is just no way that they could last the three hour trip.

Thanks guys!

Lunch in the USC area

Have you tried Bacaro, on Union? I enjoy that place very much.
