What's the wait like at Jitlada on a Saturday night?

I was at the new Chego location last weekend in Chinatown. It's much more accessible and easier to deal with than their previous location in Culver City.

How is Chego? From the descriptions and reviews, it almost sounds kinda disgusting, or at least something that tastes good but that you immediately regret having eaten.

it's kind of disgusting in the best possible way. think about what an asian stoner would want to eat at 3 in the morning. but choi really does have a knack of balancing flavors. somehow he throws everything into a ball and it all works.
i DO NOT think iamatt would like it.

Basically what FG says. I like it, but only maybe once in a while.

Thanks for the recs. Ended up having to take care of some things near Little Tokyo so I got ramen at Shin Sen Gumi, which was pretty good. Checked out Confederacy and Mohawk. Confederacy is a little too Americana for me, but funny enough I have some glasses from Warby Parker coming, so I tried some on. Almost every single frame is too small and pinch my temples like crazy. Who are these frames made for? I have a tiny head and they don't fit me.

Mohawk is nice. There's a sweet Nonnative satin bomber that just came in. Someone should buy that.

If you're looking for glasses, I like Eyetailor on Melrose, kind of near downtown. He has a good selection of independent (ie. not Luxxotica or LVMH brands) stuff from Mykita down to smaller Japanese makers.

Just looked back on this thread, and it looks like he's been recommended once before.

I do like kooky stoner food but only in small doses. I'm reminded of something a buddy of mine invented at 3 in the morning after a long night out - a saltine cracker topped with a dollop of mayo, a bread & butter pickle, a smoked oyster (trader joe's) and a squirt of Sriracha on top. One bite of heaven. A whole bowl of that kind of thing is too much but I'lll have to try Chego at least once to see what it's all about.

Bought my Roy's a size too small and I grew a size too big and now they're just too uncomfortable. Can denim doctors or another place move the button? If I could just get another 1/2 inch after all that stretching, they would be perfect.

Thanks.

Any good blogs on LA sushi? Been going mostly off yelp and it's helpless since this is pretty much every review:
post #2021 of 2318

post #2022 of 2318

Hence my question. Yelp is never good for Asian food as too many "experts" who have been to Asia once know how all food tastes. Or people just complain about sticky floors and that place had poor seating. Just find LA especially bad.

Little bit of both, think I went to all places you rec'd already, just get sushi like 3-4x a week at least and like to try new places. Urasawa was super bomb like you said but damn with that bill might as well book a flight to Japan.


Also anybody signing up for Dinnerlab? Kind of tempted but hear mixed reviews
post #2024 of 2318

Urusawa and sushi sushi are so close to me during work. I don't go to Urusawa because of the $$$$$ factor as well (literally cost of a flight to Japan). Sushi sushi is a great hidden spot and I guess I'm spoiled by it with lunch breaks. Sasabune is really good... I overdo it with their omakase. Similar in a sense to sugar fish, yet I feel they do a playful approach to traditional sushi (which is a good thing) all while not catering to the "american" palate where Sugarfish typically shines.
