There is an excellent spicy sardine bahn mi at Viet Noodle in Atwater Village.
I always keep several cans of sardines and oysters on hand but I've often felt like I had no idea what I was buying, so I really appreciate this info. I just checked my cupboard and I have some Moroccan sardines, boneless and skinless, packed in olive oil (Trader Joe's label). I've enjoyed these - a little milder than I prefer but the quality has been solid. The other ones I have now are Crown Prince, wood smoked, packed in mustard. The tin says they're from Scotland. I'm gonna go open those up and give them a try.
