Is there anything better than Sushi-Gen for the price?
post #2222 of 2286

post #2223 of 2286
My girlfriend and I ate at the Morton's right by the SLS one of the days we were in town last month because we were tired after a long day and didn't really want to eat at Bazaar.

Possibly the worst steakhouse experience I've ever had. The sides were poorly seasoned (garlic mashed potatoes were too garlicky to the point of being inedible), the salads weren't good, and their wine menu was just off (the "house sommelier told me Saldo was the big brother to The Prisoner, when it's actually the cheaper blend). The steak was okay, but I would have been truly shocked if a steakhouse had poor cuts of meat.

I was in Vegas a couple weeks ago, and STK was night and day difference compared to Morton's (which is exactly what one would expect), and was just about the same price. I guess that's what I get for not going to a REAL steakhouse, and instead going to a mediocre chain. satisfied.gif

I guess I should have gotten some reservations at Cut. Next time.

Yes. If you're a Sashimi-fiend, try Hama Sushi right down the street @ Lil Tokyo. 

I never like Sus
hi-Gen solely because of the small portion and little chunks of fish they put on your Sashimi platter.

 

If you're familiar with Alhambra, CA. There's a place that sells sashimi by weight and the fish are aged quite nicely and it's super cheap. It's called Yama seafood market on Las Tunas. TO GO only though.

Man, you should have gone down the street to Lawry's Prime Rib steak house. 

 

Could have saved a few bucks and walk out with a better experience

moving on, they brought us the breadsticks and gougeres (sp?) which were nice then the onion focaccia and pretzel breads we selected
kobe sashimi - pretty good
pork belly - oustanding
american wagyu and japanese wagyu - the best steaks i've ever had
fingerling potato wedges were alright as was the creamed spinach with egg
finished with the souffle and tea/coffee, they brought us tea cookies and more small treats

before our dinner came out wolfgang was going around greeting all the diners, we chatted him up for a few minutes, really nice guy

service was great and not overbearing, had to get taken out on a gurney

 

Wagyu with their red wine sauce is amazing

Been craving Irish curry, any place in LA have it?
post #2228 of 2286
Does the steak house in Torrance still have japanese wagyu?

Had red medicine again when I was back last month. They changed things up quite a bit. When it first opened was asian inspired now it's more forage kind of place. Just love how they named their resturant after a fugazi song

pretty meh. it was mostly 50% this weekend, maybe they do another drop to 75% this weekend. the email I got was that their 75% was starting last week and would last through the holiday weekend.

It's been mostly picked through, with some past season geller stuff still there, if you were wanting any of those double sleeved hoodies or t's that were totally boxy, then they have those. I saw a brown/white dip-dye sweatshirt in 52, which is going to be oversized for most. Also a fair amount of the Pacific Man stuff, which was overpriced at retail ($800 for a plain cashmere sweater)

Didn't realize that the other building with Umamiburger was shutting down and all of the stores in that side were either relocating to the other side or moved.

off topic, if by chance the person that picked up the Drkshdw cargo pants from Guild reads this board and you want to get rid of them, hit me up. Or if anyone knows where I might be able to find a pair of these, they seem to be very scarce to non-existent anywhere. I think there are drkshdw stockists in the LA area that don't have an online presence. Recommendations would be appreeshed.
