Whiz - Bang for your Burger Buck

I may have never had a proper cheesesteak in Philly, but I think Boo's is fantastic.

I don't understand Jeni's

I think what sets Jeni's apart is her unique flavor combinations and bringing familiar flavors into ice cream form that we're not used to. For example, one of the favorites that I have tried so far is the goat cheese with red cherries. It tasted like a delicious cheese danish but in ice cream form. You dont' get that at Baskin Robbins. And I quite like the overly creamy texture of her ice cream.

But yes, it is very pricey. 2 scoops for $5.50 may sound like a decent deal until you see just how small their scoops are. If you get a trio with a waffle cone, you're at $8+ after tax.

Wally's Vinoteca (Beverly Hills): A Pictorial Essay

thanks for bringing this place to our attention. Based on your pics and description, this place pretty much sounds like my heaven. I too would like to move in here.

Do you remember how much they were charging for the jamon iberico per oz?

Golden State's Lamb Burger now available 7 days a week!

that's great news as it's a great burger and Thursdays were always a madhouse there because of it. Having said that, I think their regular burger is actually better. It's that good.

Bill's Hamburgers Bang for your Burger Buck

thanks for the writeup. I had never heard of this place before but definitely looks like a burger I would like to try if I'm in the area. Would I drive over the hill for it, probably not.

Random musings on Don Antonio's and life

Don Antonio's is still my favorite place to go for a sit down mexican meal with a margarita. In a city with so much great mexican food, it's still so hard to get great food with a margarita.

I don't think any of those 3 places is "rated" to be considered overrated.

isn't that always the case with these types of events? I stopped going to these things for that reason.

I don't get the fuss over Night+Market Song. Thought it was very disappointing.

yup love this place. Not to mention the free "bori bap" that they give you in the beginning with the soy bean paste. Delicious!

did you have it delivered or picked up? If delivered, I can definitely see them just bringing you food from the BFWP location. If you or someone from your office picked it up from the Compton location, I think you're high.
