Nine Thirty at the W Review

i went there recently and found the desserts to be VERY good. i think they have updated the menu since last year though, i'm also always on the look out for good dessert spots.

A Ca Shi Sushi (Review) in Studio City-across from CBS Studios

i've been there SO many times, and they've never had a buffett. Jay (the owner) is usually there doing everything to order. i haven't been there since mid last year, but i would be really suprised if he changed the format... it was really awesome the 5+ times i had been there before.

bday dinner -sushi -pref westside

sushi sushi is okay... really packed though.
yabu serves up some great sushi as well as udon and other interesting things. it's a really cool little spot, and you'll get out of there for about $50.
if you want to go a little cheaper, you can try aki on santa monica blvd. they have good dinner specials, and they're sushi ain't that bad at all.
but if you want the ULTIMATE in a sushi experience, brave the drive and go to acashi in burbank. they have a $25 all you can eat sushi bar (as in, the chef does it to order), and if you start buying him beers, he'll start buying you beers, and comping toro. that's my best reccomendation.

Hu's Szechwan Restaurant on National and Rose

hu's is okay, there are some standout dishes, and some really scary ones mixed in.
the green beans are AMAZING, one of my favorite dishes in the city, but the curry chicken is frightening. choose wisely, and you'll enjoy yourself.

Mexican Restaurants in LA

i've always really enjoyed Don Antonio's on Pico Blvd., and recently found a place called Tlapazola Grill on Barrington and Gateway which was very good.

Crepe Vine in Pasadena

i think it's hilarious that they had a kitchen fire (well, not from a business aspect), but because i know for a fact that they employ mostly students from the culinary school down the way. priceless.
