The Best Dim Sum I've Never Had

Ocean Star was my go to dim sum place in LA but recently i've discovered Capital Seafood just across from Ocean Star. its in a huge strip mall, next to the 99 ranch supermarket. All the dim sum staples (except for Lo Ba Kau = radish cake) was solid! The place looks reminiscent of Scarface though, gaudy white and gold with chandeliers....

Korean for beginners?

I love Chosun, but if u dont feel like cooking then i suggest BCD Tofu, thats where I take my beginner friends, its bang for your buck too.

Exploring Sawtelle

I think Asahi Ramen is soo overrated....kind of tasteless....Chabuya's Zenbu broth is far superior.

What's your most recent WOW! Moment at an LA restaurant?

I havent had a wow moment in a really long time, but had one this sat night at Alegria on Sunset. this unassuming place in a strip mall is hands down the best mexican home cooking u will find in LA. I ordered their Chicken Mole because i havent yet to discover good Mole and was floored by the complexity and savoryness but yet it was alot lighter than i assume Mole would be. just the right amount of spice and spices. and they dont skimp on portions either. guelaguetza doesnt hold a candle.

Any Argentinean gems I don't know about?

I agree, Carlito's Gardel is the best kept secret. their steaks melt in your mouth.

Cozy date spot in Hollywood area

Pace on Laurel Canyon is very cozy and not too expensive. Never had a bad meal there. The Shrimp and beans appetizer is awesome. and I really like Eat. On Sunset too. It has a loungy vibe and great cal-french food.
