Pine and Crane 3 Cup Chicken

This is easily my favorite chicken dish in LA right now.

Dark meat Jidori chicken braised in soy, rice wine and sesame oil with ginger, basil, whole garlic cloves and dried chilis. Unbelievable depth of flavor.

I can't stop eating it!

Koi ponds?

There's a really nice one with a modernist, rectilinear setup at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank.

Anywhere to get a bahn mi sandwiches in the Los Feliz/Silver Lake area?

You can get a semi-decent one at Xoia on Sunset in EP. Nothing revelatory but it'll do the trick if you're craving.

Taco Zone, has anyone tried it?

Can't find it, but he's an article that mentioned them:

Taco Zone, has anyone tried it?

I'd say it's better than Yucas. Their flaccid, store bought tortillas bother me.

I go for the suadero and the tripas tacos at Taco Zone. Also their horchata is solid, if not revelatory.

IMHO, they're better than ns1 makes them out to be. Heck, they were written up in the New York Times (for whatever that's worth).

Taco Zone is ALWAYS on Alvarado just north of Sunset. They don't start up until 8pm or so.

Ground veal in the Silver Lake/Los Feliz/EP/East Hollywood area?

Thanks. I actually called the Gelson's in my neighborhood and they ground some up for me.

I simply thought it was funny and enjoyed the razzing. As far as taking this seriously and condemning wienermobile for deliberately spreading disinfo... that seems a bit ridiculous.

I mean, in the end it's just gelato we're talking about, people.

Some of you are treating this like it's Gelato-gate.

I'm making Italian-American "Sunday Gravy" for football watching this weekend and need to source ground veal for my meatballs. Any suggestions for where to buy in this area?

Thanks

Little Beast- Just what Eagle Rock needed

I found the food at Sonny's to be decent but more about providing a buffer for cocktail consumption than anything else. Went to Ba when it first opened and found it overcharged and under-delivered.

Smoke House in Burbank

That makes all kinds of sense.

Little Beast- Just what Eagle Rock needed

Had the same experience my last trip to Beaujolais. The waiters seemed more interested in chatting up sexy young girls than doing the actual work of waitering.

"Little Beast fills this hole" - I think that's a pull quote for the front of their menu.

3% healthcare charge: coming to more receipts near you

Nicole Holofcener is a criminally underrated filmmaker. Been a fan since WALKING AND TALKING, which did a really fine job depicting the changing face of 1990s Manhattan.

Is it the same old same old or was the place recently refreshed or "reimagined" (that word makes me want to puke)?

What's a dive bar in LA or OC on the current scene that Mr. Bukowski would not feel out of place at if deigned to enter the joint ?????????????????????????

Nah, she's a conspiracy nut fer sure. I wasn't joking re: the reptilian shape shifters reference.

Exene is a conspiracy nut. I'd hang out with her but wouldn't want her to confuse me for a reptilian shapeshifter.

I live in Silver Lake but I think I'd rather fly to NYC or Paris (maybe not Malibu) than brave Hollywood/Highland.

darn, and it was the only sort of offal that I'd consider eating again because it's so incredibly delicious.

I'd recommend ordering it from these folks. I had the pleasure of working with them on some media projects when I lived in NYC. They're also kind folks who know their business very well, indeed.

I've only ever been there to drink - we usually hit it before/after seeing shows next door at the Roxy. Is the food decent?

Rainbow Bar scares me - it exists in a world where hair metal was and continues to be the coolest thing, ever.

The last time I was there it felt like we were visiting a zoo where the main attractions were Dee Snider lookalikes.

If you get kicked out of a bar and remember why you were kicked out, you weren't really doing it right, were you?
