Peranakan cuisine in LA?

My friend just came back from a trip to Singapore and raved about the Peranakan food she ate there. Is there anywhere in LA where I can find some decent Nonya fare? Eagle Rock based - willing to drive great distance to try!

BBQ Trailers for rental?

Hi!
I am looking to rent a BBQ trailer on a hitch so that you can attach it to your car. Ideally I am looking for one with a smoker - Anyone know where I can rent one of these? I have attached a picture.
Thanks!!

best veggie burger? astro?

I second that! The Lucky Devil's burger won't win any votes for price ($14 or $15 even at lunch), but it's the BEST veggie burger in this town! Don't forget the toasted brioche bun... and the fact that they make them fresh each morning!

Sunday Challenge HELP!

Thanks SO MUCH for all of your suggestions! I wanted to try Gill's, but it doesn't seem to be open Sunday after all :( Everyone seems to like Pete's, but I think that it might push us over budget. I think we're going to try the Redwood! I'll keep you posted on the results!

Sunday Challenge HELP!

I have a cousin visiting this Sunday and we need to find a place to eat... looking at old posts has proven futile in this case. There are so many cooks in the kitchen implementing various restrictions that I am truly at a loss on this one. Help me, fellow chowhounders! Think of it as a challenge! Below are the restrictions:
1. Restaurant has to be open for a late-ish (8pm?) dinner on a Sunday
2. We have 2 vegetarians in the party
3. Party is large, 6 or 7 people
4. Place needs to be CHEAP to moderate (please no more than $13/$14 entrees!)
5. He will only go downtown!
We are ok with casual spots, like in Chinatown or what have you, but it needs to be a comfortable place to sit and have a meal. Thanks and I look forward to your ideas!

Elf Cafe anyone been recently

I've been to Elf twice in the past two months for dinner, the first time someone else treated and I quite enjoyed my meal: kale salad in particular stood out. However, the second time I decided that the food was overpriced (bill came to $40 for only 3 entrees, no drinks, no appetizers). Also, the ultra-hip crowd that lines up early hovers over the few tables, making a leisurely meal out of the question. While it's great to have an all vegetarian restaurant that isn't part of the Vegan Paradise dynasty thrown into the mix, I have to say that my feelings for Elf have soured somewhat. While the food is nicely thought out and prepared, I feel strongly enough about the cons of high prices and a cramped environment to give the place a hearty "meh." If everything on the menu were $3 cheaper and the restaurant made people wait outside for tables, I would heartily recommend.

LA Indian Food, Please Enlighten!

I have been in LA just under two years, and I still have no idea where to find the best Indian food in the city. Is there a Little India in LA and if so, where is it? What are the best places to eat there? Thanks!
And I'd like to edit this... What places are good that are not so far as Artesia? Thanks!

CHEAP Parents visiting - East Side suggestions?

My parents love good food, but hate to spend more than $10/person when going out to dinner. Anyone have any good suggestions for places on the East Side besides Pho Cafe or The Kitchen? Thanks!
