Wakasanchi

It makes no sense to me how bad Japanese food is in America. Especially in L.A. and S.F. there are large enough populations of native Japanese peoples that you’d think there would be some good restaurants. Although there are some good sushi places, almost without fail anything that is not sushi in pretty craptacular. There […]

Baja Bud’s

My favorite place for a carnitas(pork) burrito.  Baja Buds is a chain.  If you have a friend how does like Mexican food take them to Baja Buds.  Order a carnitas burrito with guac and mild salsa and have them give it a try.  If they don’t like it something’s wrong. 😉

Rae’s Cafe

On Pico west of Centinela.  The thing going for Rae’s is it’s old looking like a 50s diner.  Not like Ruby’s which is a commercialized version of a 50s diner but an actual 50s diner.  It doesn’t look like this place has changed in 50 years.  Maybe it hasn’t.  Food what you’d expect for a […]

Sanamulang Cafe

Sanamulang Cafe is in the middle of Thai Town.  I didn’t even know L.A. had a Thai town but it does.  I’m not sure what the boundaries of Thai Town are but Hollywood Blvd east of the 101 for a few miles seems to be the area.  Samamulang doesn’t seem to be a Thai restaurant.  […]

The Hump

The Hump is some of the best Sushi / Sashimi on LA and it’s in a cool location to boot.  It’s actually at the Santa Monica Airport.  Sounds strange but it’s definitely cool.  I’ve only been here once but it was most certainly an unforgettable pleasure for my mouth.

Johnnies

I don’t know what to say about Johnnies.  I was just driving around and I saw this.  It’s on Sepulevda south between the two Washingtons.  The claim famous French Dip and Pastrami sandwiches.  I tried it out and it was pretty good.  It’s a small place but it looks like it either gets very crowed […]

Soot Bull Jeep: Korean BBQ place

If you are going to try Korean BBQ and you’re in LA this is the place to do it.  It’s dark and hot and full of smoke coming from the coals that you cook your own food on so expect your clothes to smell like Korean BBQ when you leave.  It’s on 8th somewhere between […]
