Taco spots? Or ktown spots that are open for lunch and serve draft?

No draught, but Tacos Puntas Cabras (which opened just a couple months ago) in Santa Monica has probably the best & most authentic fish tacos you will find in LA. (cash only)

I found their ceviche and other seafood concoctions to be too sour for my taste. However, their tacos are absolutely fantastic. I'd go there just for that.

Any thoughts / additions on list of spots for casual/summer wedding suit

American Rag
RTH
Confederacy
Opening Ceremony

Yucca's Hut has great tacos but no beer. Same with Burrito King. Lots of perfectly adequate Mexican places that will have beer. Mexico City in LF is OK. El Coyote is mediocre but iconic. I think Chosun Galbi has some draft beers (not sure, though - I do recall they have a full bar) and I know they're open for lunch.

Golden State of Fairfax has good food and a good beer selection and does excellent beer floats.


If you make it over to the western part of hollywood there's the fred segal on melrose (I think it's technically WeHo) for clothes-shopping.

It's Yuca's with one c. They don't serve beer but the real silverlaker tradition is to order your food then run across the parking lot to buy a beer and drink it wino style out of a paper bag.

Nice catch, thanks. But I would consider it solidly Los Feliz as opposed to Silverlake.

Square One isn't bad for lunch. And I like that newish Vietnamese place in Atwater Village alright.

Yup.

Also finally tried Black Hogg. Went in very skeptical but was pleasantly surprised. Minus the oysters which tasted just a little old.

I just saw this in the LA Times today about an LA-area lawyer who's visited 6297 Chinese restaurants and has the Excel spreadsheet to prove it.

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-chinese-eater-20130422-dto,0,6902048.htmlstory

His top 10:

http://graphics.latimes.com/chinese-restaurants/

1. Koi Palace
2. Sea Harbour
3. Elite Restaurant
4. King Hua
5. Lunasia
6. Din Tai Fung
7. Yank Sing
8. Seafood Village
9. 101 Noodle Express
10. Jai Yun

It's telling that except for 1, 7, and 10, the other top 10 are all in Alhambra, Monterey Park or Arcadia. The exceptions are all in San Francisco. #10 sounds intriguing, because I'd never seen that done in a Chinese restaurant on an individual basis before.

Yank Sing is my first stop for Dim Sum after arriving in SF. Place is so fucking tasty!

Yes, it's totally in LF. But generations of Silverlake folk have grown up hopping the fence at Marshall at 4th period to grab some carne asada.

lawyerdad and I are meeting for a beer and some delicious burgers at Father's Office in Culver City this Monday, the 6th at 7:00pm. Do join us if you're free at that time. I can come a little earlier to grab us a table outside since I work somewhat nearby.

Will have to play it by ear, but I might be able to make that.

I might bike over there, so if you're late there will probably be no more beer left.
