Bringing the discussion back around to ice cream since I think there were a few people looking for soft serve a couple weeks ago:

New soft serve place in Silverlake near Trader Joe's opening this week.

^ oh shit that's not far from where I am this summer and I love soft serve. I don't necessarily like waiting in long lines for relatively cheap free stuff, though. Maybe I'll check it out on Friday.

Hugo's in Atwater Village has soft serve too, though it may be some kind of soy product? Don't remember.

Just tried a Guisados chiles torreados taco (their hottest one) for the first time. While it wasn't so hot that I was weeping like some frat buffoon doing an inedible wings challenge, it was hot enough that I won't be repeating that experiment again

I've considered that one several times and I've always passed. Sounds like I have nothing to regret.

Magpies was disappointing. Girlfriend got the honey yuzu (a little mild on the yuzu flavor), which was better than my strawberry rhubarb (mostly just acidic). We agreed that we both preferred something cheap like the cones at Chik-fil-A.

The only consolation was standing in line in front of a B list celebrity.

Yesterday, had a late lunch at Fishing with Dynamite. Had been there once before and enjoyed it, but this little meal was damn near perfect. Their tonnato and heirloom tomato toast (recent addition to the menu) might be the best thing I've eaten in a while.

Then later, spotted the Guerrilla Taco truck outside Silverlake Wine. Was initially a bit miffed about how expensive the tacos and how long the orders took. But then I realized that they're expletive-inducing good.

Guerilla Tacos is absolutely amazing. I recommend it to all out-of-towners - shame there isn't a B&M location for consistency's sake. I'm never had a bad item there...except for this Armenian sausage - Sujuk. Not too much of a fan, but that was on me not liking the sausage's taste, not GT doing a bad job.

(I guess it's more or less true at this point.)

Hey guys, just started working in ktown about a week go lol.
Any recs for lunch spots? (aside from straight up Korean)
I've had belly & snout and beer belly so far. Both super filling though
I also assume there may be a dearth of noteworthy places around here...

I think Baco Mercat and Bottega Louie are both open late-ish (by LA standards, anyway). I prefer the former to the latter, but folks love B-Louie and the food was fine the time or two I went.
