New Dunkin' Donuts in Encino

Earlier in the week the employees were waving down cars and handing out boxes of donuts. I scored six tasty cream filled donuts.

What's the most unique and upscale Iranian/Persian food in LA?

Try Green Olive in Encino. They serve Persian food along with really good pizza. Be sure to try the koobideh pizza! It's a bit different than most Persian restaurant with the plating. An order of kabob comes with a small serving of rice along with grilled vegetables and your choice of salad. The food is very good.

Exciting news in encino at former Islands space.

Sign is up for House of Galbi Korean BBQ and bar. I hope it's good, I'll get my fix more often.

Sherman Oaks/Encino lightweight dinner suggestions please

Have you tried "On the Thirty"? It's across the street from tipple and brine. Bonus they serve Big Mista's spicy smoked wings, delicious.

Temecula offerings - Looking for guided wine tours, dining delights, and any other recs

A few years ago I had a really great meal at the Pechanga Resort restaurant, The Great Oak. Funny story, They had Foie Gras on the menu and I was asking the waiter if the chef ruined it by saucing it with some kind of fruit sauce. Little did I know that the chef was standing behind me when I asked. He answered "no" and brought out an outstanding Foie Gras appetizer that didn't have a raspberry sauce anywhere near it.

Zam Zam market closing in Culver City

I spoke with one of the guys there and they said they are going to reopen in Hawthorne which might as well mean it's closed for me forever.

Fyi, I just went to pick up my weekly stash of biltong. They are out of summer sausage until Thursday, on Saturday someone bought all of it.

Summer Sausage in LA

European sausage kitchen in Beverly Hills makes a great one. Also try their South African biltong. I'm partial to the turkey biltong, it's delicious.

Great Lunch at Sushi Kiyono

I just sit down and he feeds me one piece at a time until I'm full. The tuna hand roll was a negi toro, a very nice sized one too.

What's the original The Original Thai BBQ joint?

Jeez, it seems you might get more info from Yelp. What's with the cryptic responses here?

Great Lunch at Sushi Kiyono

I need to point out that when I have my omakase there he serves me one piece of each sushi because that's what I asked for years ago. If you go with your friend just let him know to give you each one piece of sushi so that you can see all he has to offer. He almost always finishes off with a crab and lobster roll which is baked and might fall into the gloppy category but I absolutey love it.

Great Lunch at Sushi Kiyono

I too use to avoid this place until I saw this post years ago. The previous owner was horrible, that is no longer the case with the current owner. I've never had anything that wasn't fresh nor have I had oversized sushi. Kawasaki is a real gentleman as is the current owner.

Great Lunch at Sushi Kiyono

Yes, Kawasaki San is there and I sit with him all the time. On this I have to disagree with you jessejames. This is my go to lunch spot for omakase and Kawasaki San is my goto itamae.

Good prices on fresh basil anywhere? Pasadena area.

Any Persian or middle eastern market will have a large selection at the best price.

Oxnard - Family Friendly

Second this place. We eat here often when we are in Oxnard. Check out the Jolly Oyster nearby in Ventura too. Not a restaurant though. More of a place to buy and shuck your own oysters and clams on the beach. Bonus? You are allowed to bring and consume alcohol there.

Okumura in Encino

Just OK. I've gotten the Omakase there before its nothing special, run of the mill cuts of fish. The last time I went I didn't get a bunch of things I ordered because he was too busy catering to a Japanese four top. The items, however, were on my bill. 4 on 6 as Sgee mentioned is superior.
