Yucca's has a regular restaurant right down the block from Home State, with a more extensive menu than the hut. I'd try there.

Though L.A. is a real taco town, I think it's a lot easier to find breakfast burritos than breakfast tacos. Tacos Villa Corona on Glendale Blvd. in Atwater always has breakfast, definitely burritos, maybe tacos too.

point of clarity: for a texan, a breakfast taco is a very specific thing, not just a taco that you eat at breakfast, or even a taco filled with eggs.

I bought a couple of pints of Graeter's - Black Raspberry Chip and Salted Caramel. Good shit.

don't know whether anyone noticed, but apparently Jenni's has recalled ALL of their ice creams and shut down ALL of their stores (at least in California) because of listeria concerns. and they were just getting started. let's hope they bounce back (though personally i prefer mcdonnell's and gelateria ulli in downtown la (one is on grand central market, directly across from both Sticky Rice and Wexler's Deli and the other is next door to Guisados ... talk about kismet!)

Jenis is handling this deftly. A single postive test and because they could not determine the root cause, rather than recalling a few varieties at a time they made the decision within 24 hrs to totally shut down everything to clean and implement better controls. Compare that with Blue Bell who let things bleed out over several weeks before pulling everything. Additionally, Jenis is performing really well on Twitter. They are built on transparency which makes it possible for them to get through this imo.

Jeni Britton Bauer is from Columbus, OH, and has a couple scoop shops around town. I say this because my girlfriend and I got ice cream from one on Sunday and she had listeria poisoning from Monday through Wednesday and finally started feeling like normal yesterday. Not fun.

The scary part is that I had the same type of ice cream as her, and thus far I feel fine. Strong immune system I hope

A break from ice cream - Assembly NY opening on 7977 Melrose, near Fred Segal/Ron Herman

Need to update my last two weeks of grazing the city… good news for most spots: Bestia, Hinoki, etc.

Went to Nobu in Malibu last night for the hell of it. I know the food will never be as good as the prices they charge, but I like chilling there for some reason. Fucking delicious Santa Barbara uni though!
