ISO Lemon Custard Ice Cream

It will be worth the drive!

Take the 10 to Fremont Ave. Go north on Fremont, right on Mission, left on Palms, right on Main. You'll be there in no time :)

I'll keep my eyes open for a closer to you lemon custard too!

ISO Lemon Custard Ice Cream

The lemon custard at Fosselman's is the best flavor ever. I don't eat ice cream anymore but I can still taste it. YUM.

Hollywood Friday night vegetarian friendly

Pure Luck and Cru are both only about three miles from the Arclight.

Pure Luck has good tacos and a great beer selection. Cru is a little fancier with some really good cooked entrees in addition to their raw items.

1 night in Portland, where to go?

I think Toro Bravo. They do local, seasonal, and do it very well!

Where do you go grocery shop?

I also like this topic as I have been thinking about this lately. Gelson's and Ralphs because they are within walking distance, but I love neither. Trader Joes and Nature Mart when taking the car. Farmer's market when I can make it. Whole Foods for some specialty items but I think I am done with them for multiple reasons. When I am near a Fresh & Easy I will stop in for a couple things that seem to be cheapest there. Amazon for HP Sauce. My ideal grocery store only exists in my mind unfortunately! I wish there was a better nearby alternative.

Alhambra

Finally tried Loving Hut the other day. I stopped in for a take-out salad when I happened to be across the street at UPS and realized I was feeling lightheaded and low blood sugar-y. The man that was working was super nice and brought me water while I waited for my order. I ate my salad (Aulac special salad, $6.95) when I got back to the shop and it was really fresh and flavorful.

Let's talk TEXTURE

Sometimes I think texture is more important to me than flavor. Thanks for bringing this up- really interesting thread...
