Interesting Thread on Reddit Asking Expats Most Authentic Home Country Restaurant in LA

very interesting thread. I just read through the entire thing and got some spots I want to check out now.

What are some over-rated L.A. restaurants to you? Why, specifically? Only one each!

agreed about Langers

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'll play.

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!

Sushi Gen at the sushi bar: The Non $15 Sashimi Platter review (Part 2)

BTDT and there are so many better options in our city that Sushi Gen is not even on my radar anymore.

Bludso's Compton...deserted?

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.

Can anyone recommend a good Dim Sum option during night time hours anywhere in LA?

Lunasia in Pasadena serves Dim Sum for dinner

The Morrison in Atwater Village

I went recently for the very first time. They do have a pretty decent happy hour. Ordered a few apps from the HH menu and had a burger. The flavors of the burger I had was good but the patty was a bit overcooked. Still enjoyed it. Everything else was very mediocre.

I thought the highlight of the whole experience was the service. From the moment we walked in to the moment we got the check, they couldn't have been friendlier. Was a breath of fresh air to have such a friendly server in this town.

Would I return? Maybe for happy hour but not in a rush to go back.

Pasadena help, please!!

you need to call and make reservations. Ask for seats in front of Ike-san (pronounced ee-keh) and just order the omakase. It'll run you ~$80pp.

Pasadena help, please!!

If you're in the mood for sushi, Sushi Kimagure is one of the best imho.

Heads up: Canele is now serving ramen

I like Canele a lot but this just seems like a gimmick to try to capitalize on the ramen craze that we're going through right now. Just stick to what you do well and keep improving on that. There are plenty of ramen shops in this city.

Lucky Duck Closing

their price point was offbase for the food and location. And don't get me started on their tiny pours of wines for the prices they were charging.

Yelp has pics of the menu showing prices

Republique Dinner Review-L.A.

not that any of this really matters, but food is not that expensive at Republique. Would be difficult to order $250 worth of food for just two people unless one likes to just over order and waste food. My guess is that at least $350 of the bill was in booze.
