Cobras and Matadors on Hollywood Blvd. What to order??

This place gets my vote for the worst restaurant I've been to in LA. Sorry...I am not trying to stir up an argument. The whole experience from the temperature of the restaurant to the food was awful.

Waffles in LA other than Roscoes?

I really like the waffle at Canter's.

You get a small bowl of melted butter for your waffle as well as small packs of syrup. It's really worth checking out if you are waffle hunting.

Make your own Sprinkles Cupcakes! [moved from L.A. board]

Apologies if this has already been discussed on CHOWHOUND, but I was very excited to discover these. They taste just like the real thing!

Created by the celebrated Beverly Hills cupcake shop, this mix bakes up a dozen scrumptious cupcakes. The ingredients, including rich Callebaut cocoa and Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, are of the highest quality. With the mix, you’ll receive the confectioners’ “dots” that are the visual signature of Sprinkles’ cupcakes, as well as a simple recipe for frosting. 15 oz.

Why doesn't LA have any good Greek restaurants??

I have been searching for some Detroit style saganaki since I moved here.

I've been to the Le Petit Greek on Larchmont and their saganaki (flaming cheese!) is ok...i think its more traditional.

Detroit style is very tasty and very americanized. Usually served at Coney Island restaurants.

DAMIANO'S PIZZA (Fairfax) is terrible!!

I always park next to the metered spots, which are usually taken. This way you will be right next to the door of Damiano's.

Throw on your hazard lights and run in.

I want to try Foi Gras but I don't know where to try it

I'd like to recommend the steak and foie gras from Katana. It's been a little while since I've been there - I think its kobe and foie (wrapped together around a piece of asparagus). It's the best thing they have on the menu..

I know this isn't "pure, unadulterated" but it's pretty tasty.

DAMIANO'S PIZZA (Fairfax) is terrible!!

I love Damiano's! I am about to pick up a few slices.

I even frequented the establishment when it had a big red C in its window.

A few things I've learned:

1. Always pick up. Delivery ruins the pizza, it adds an extra $4.00 to the total, and it can take over an hour to arrive.

2. The best size to get is the extra large. These slices are the same as the single slices they sell. This is the New York size pizza. The best.

3. If you phone your order in get there BEFORE its ready. When the pizzas are waiting to be picked up they place them on top of the oven in their box - the same as sitting in a delivery bag. This ruins the pizza!

Best Pizza?? Not Paper Thin Crust Either

Damiano's Mr. Pizza is the best out there. About 8 months ago thery were given a 'C' rating, but I still frequented the place.

I suggest you get pizza and stay away from the other things like the salad.

Pinkberry?

Just went to the Melrose location (7pm). Only 1 person ahead of me in line. They definitely were stingy with my Cap'n crunch. For an extra $1 for CEREAL they should pile it on. I will say something next time....if there even is a next time. I was not very impressed. hype hype hype

CRISPY Chile Relleno

Where in LA can I find a cripy chile relleno?? Places I have been:

1. El Coyote (sick)
2. Merix
3. Gardens of Taxco
4. Mexican place at the Farmers Market

I've been in LA for about 2 years and I havent found a mexican restaurant I love. 2,3, and 4 above are all very good, but they dont have a crispy relleno!
