Best Hot Chocolate in LA/OC

I agreed, Vosges cocoas are so good. Their Aztec Elixir is the best. Just the right amount of spice.

Anything Vegetarian at Oinkster?

They have a veggie burger, plantains, most salads you can order without the chicken, garden salad has no chicken. If you order the fries, tell them you want vegetarian fries, other wise they are cooked in beef fat.

1 dinner at the MGM Grand LV

Of your three choices, Fiamma was my favorite, I also had a great meal at Nobhill. Stay away from Seablue. It was probably one of the worst meals I've had in Vegas.

Give Oinkster Another Try!

I have been to Oinkster several times since it's opening. I have tried, the pastrami, pulled pork, hamburger, and the chicken salad sandwich so far. I have yet to be able to finish a whole sandwich in one meal. I always have the other half of the sandwich for another meal. They are plenty big enough. And delicious!

MINX in Glendale

I made a reservation @ MINX for a party of ten 4 days in advance. I got a call back from the restaurant confirming my reservation. When my party and I arrived at MINX for dinner the hostess said she could not find a reservation for our party. She informed us it was very busy and she would not be able to seat us. I insisted on speaking with the manager and I explained the situation. He checked his computer and informed us our reservation was for next week. I assured him that the woman who called me to confirm my reservation confirmed the correct information, NOT reservations for next week. The manager then informed us that they could get a table ready for us out on the patio, it would just take a moment. By then 20 minutes had past since we first arrived. My Friends and I were standing there waiting at the entrance thinking that the evening was not turning out very well, and maybe we should just leave. It was decided that since they were already getting our table ready we would just stay and try to make the best of the rest of the evening.
Suddenly in walks a party of 40 teenagers. They are promptly greeted and taken out to the patio seating. The hostess then returns and informs us that our table is ready but because she just sat a party of 40, that party had to settle in and get taken care of, so it would still be a while before she could seat us. Needless to say, we promptly left. We ended up having a delicious, beautiful, quiet dinner at NOE.
