    ^^^ Misread?

    Salt or miso, with the salmon roe rice. I think it might be set C? Can't remember.

    +1 on Santoka at Mitsuwa in Costa Mesa, and I've had Shinsengumi in FV too which is good but not quite this good. Also, the density of awesome places to eat in LA is offset by Orange County having Chick-Fil-A.
    I wouldn't ride the "OC is better than LA for having Chick-Fil-A" train if I were you; not only does LAC have them (Redondo, Torrance) but the Inland Empire was one of the first to get one.

    get the SPECIAL PORK set. whatever that is, i think it's #7. make sure it's the one where the toppings are on the side. it's the best thing they have. so much so i have never gotten anything else there.

    Cool thanks poly will try that.

    A few of my other favorite spots as limited as they are in oc are

    -anjin jap. bbq on paularino and bristol across from the supermarket santoka is in (best things are #5 marbled prime rib, #43 fried rice in earth stone pot and beef tatake to start). This place is only open from 5pm-1am no reservations and long wait unless you go b/w 5-6

    -gulfstream for fish restaurant

    -bandera for the most amazing french dip, mac n cheese, cornbread, burgers (same as houstons)

    -johns philly grill in hb (the one on goldenwest and edinger) for the best cheesesteaks, dude is from philly

    I don't know but paradise on glenoaks has some great pastries as do a couple of other spots in glendale.

    Ever been to shamshiri?

    I'm not sure if I've gone but I've eaten at a few persian joints in oc, la, westwood and raffis in glendale is my go to spot. It's the best tasting, cheapest and most generous along with great casual patio dining. Get the barg kebab (filet) cooked medium (or else it comes out dry) and it's almost enough for two, with some tea afterwards with zooloobya and bomya desert pastres drenched in melted sugar. The perfect meal and the chicken barg is nice too even though it looks glow in the dark.

    been kind of disenchanted from ramen after going to shinsengumi's.
    there's just something wrong about paying $12 to eat average ramen...
    would rather eat 2 packs of some doctored instant ramen.

    haven't tried most of these places. i'll give it a shot, thanks.
    oc food isn't that bad though.

    figure there had to be some awesome persian joints in Glendale. There's a good lebanese place right near my pad that is a go to for Shwarma, Falafel, etc. but always into checking out other habib eateries

    and this is posted on style forum where nerds pay $200+ for jeans and $100 is a good sale price for an oxford shirt [​IMG] I think anything up to $10 is a good price unless I'm dumping all kinds of shit into the soup base, which I rarely do. Chashu, green onion, bean sprouts and maybe bamboo shoots is all I need. Hold the ginger and dump the egg into the trash
