    i'll have to try that now. i'm content with philly's best chains, they import armoroso rolls on a daily basis which is amazing

    that's what Fredo's in Pasadena did when Dan ran it. Philly's Best is ok, I would like it more if I didnt have Fredo's to compare it with

    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.


    If shinsengumi is average, what ramen do you like?

    ^ is Fredo's as good as it was? They changed owners right

    GS, yeah the food looks really normal, but maaaan.


    Farmer's market was kind of cool. I want to do the "taste of farmer's market" thing as I only tried some dried fruit and ice cream at Bennett's (which was good. all handmade there) The fruit was fkn expensive

    I've had phillys best and I won't say anymore. Go to the john's at the location I mentioned (they have 2 or 3 others) and order the #2 pepper steak and when the guy asks if you want onions etc on it just say yes. The best is when you get it to go so its wrapped up and the juices soak into the bread for 10-15 minutes and it's still piping hot. Not as good if you get it and dine in, we usually have him wrap it anyway. Trust me.

    The chili cheese fries are good too but it's enough for two people. Damn I might go today after work now.

    damn, this thread is a goldmine.

    also, i don't know if this has been mentioned before, but kelvin, if you like farmers markets, you should check out the one on mission in south pas every thursday in the afternoon. it's pretty small, but i always walk away with something delicious to eat.

    senor fish on mission is pretty solid too. but the eagle rock one is nicer to sit at. should we expand this to eagle rock? then we can throw in blue hen, fatties (good but overrated), la Beaujolais's (the french one and the vietnamese one), larkins, oinkster, etc...

    Dude... Beaujolais is fucking awesome. I keep telling the Lobster about it since it's a great date place AND the food is good, too. Love the French waiters who do nothing but hit on your date on the not-so-sly ala that SNL sketch.

    If we're talking farmers markets, Montrose>South Pas any day of the fucking week. Just don't go blowing up my spot. Same goes with Larchmont.

    Went to Rising Sun today. The interior is f'ing awesome and chain hemming is on site and $15, which is reasonable in my opinion. Jeans themselves are not really my cup of tea. But anyway, as I drove by on Fair View I noticed the guy just lounging there looking bored out of his mind, on the walk back he was still idling. Kind of feel for the guy, poor choice of location tbh, Pasadena's more of a hotspot for TR than for Americana.

    I told him he should sign up for our forums. Don't know if he did yet.

    He needs to connect more with a lot of the online sellers, seems kind of slow just relying on streetshoppers.

    Yup. Montrose still feels more old-school and much more toned down. Plus, parking isn't a complete whore.

    It's Fair Oaks, noob. I haven't been in that store nor have heard of anyone else going there and not finding him or his wife looking totally bored. Their choice of location is a complete mystery as is their lack of online presence (a quick google would find forums like SF and sufu when searching for terms like "selvage" or "cone mills") and customer base. Get Smart and I have mentioned this ad nauseum, though.

    Hahah Fairview is a street a few blocks from my house that's essentially a strip of apartments in a city of inflated 2 story McMansions.

    Yeah I checked it out the other day too. Apparently most of the jeans they make are true to the period jeans. They make em exactly how they did in the late 19th century. Pretty cool, but the guy wasn't super polite though.
