    Isn't the meat used for that dish also known as "long pig?"

    I don't like that stuff. It's like really shitty naan. I'm going to try again though.

    No. Ethiopians I know don't even make the injera usually. Too much of a pain in the ass apparently. Besides, I don't have a pan large enough to make those giant things.

    Cheese fondue. Just threw it together with some stuff in the house but it was just the thing after a stressful earthquake-y day.

    I've had it at several restaurants in Little Ethiopia. Aside from the first two times I've loved it, especially at Nyala and I believe Genet. The stuff I've enjoyed isn't really like Naan at all. If you get a chance when you're here I'd try one of the restaurants on Fairfax. There's another good one in Inglewood but it will probably only be convenient on your way to or from LAX.

    I don't get the naan comparison either. Completely different breads.

    Yesterday for brunch, pulled pork sandwich with slaw and a side of collard greens from the Big Mistah BBQ truck. Big Mistah is as good as any bbq I've had in Texas, or anywhere really. [​IMG]

    looks alright but I always lament that BBQ has to be served with such pitiful bread, as if there is some rule to keep the bread as low quality as possible. I worked at a BBQ restaurant before and it was kind of sad to see all this beautiful, freshly smoked meat go out with crappy ass sides like canned beans and white bread.

    Yeah, I like bbq on very soft white bread like that. It seems like the perfect vehicle. Maybe that's just because I'm used to it.

    bbq, where white bread is considered a vegetable.

    i hate to say it, but there is something about soaking a gooey piece of white bread in bbq sauce that you just don't get with a poilane boule.

    Quoted for posterity.

    I mean, where I come from back home, BBQ is the local food, and all the bread everywhere sucks anyway, but it really is wal mart white bread that costs like 75 cents a loaf. That stuff sucks. Same idea as a craft burger, a nice bun would elevate that shit to a new level. /rant off

    What does a pulled pork sandwich have to do with Texas BBQ?

    Nothing - I ate that in Los Angeles. I was just saying that this particular BBQ vendor is as good as any I ever had in TX, where I lived for 6 years and where I still visit regularly. I'm just surprised to have found such good bbq from a Los Angeles food truck.

    Thanks, was looking for those, as I pretty much agree.

    eh. different strokes for different ppl. i feel like a crusty miche with a bit of sourness could work better than soft white bread made from pillsbury dough
