Please don't take any photos in there.
I agree, but honestly sometimes with traffic heading over the hill can be such a pain in the fucking ass. Sure the resturants, shopping, just about everything is worth it and better, but there's not much worse than sitting in heinious traffic for an hour plus only to get to the resturnat and to have spent more time in traffic than at the resturant.
I digress, Take a Bao is really good, kinda kitschy name but noodles, potstickers, bao dishes, and meatballs are awesome. Good place, prices are good and though the menu ins't huge, they have a good selection and deliver on just about everything.
p.s. I relaized I said Kiwami sushi, though that has been closed and replaced by Izaka-ya, I menat Asanebo.
Hit up "The Boiling Crab" in Alhambra, they have a few locations. Damn, really good mix of seafoods...shrimps and dunguness crab....fried oysters...all reallly good with cajun seasoning. I didn't think I'd like it but I did....really want to try their crawfish next time, but it looks (and I hear it is) crazy packed all the time, I went at off peak hours and it was still a half hour wait.
5 years in LA and i had Fathers Office Burger for the first time last night. wasn't impressed. bun sucked. rustic canyon still best premium burger i've had in this fair city.
usually is, they just opened up one in k-town too.
If you are in the OC, theres a place called "Claws", which is pretty much the same as Boiling Crab, but the wait time is less and they have much fresher food.
Could you please recommend some nice/fancy Valentine dinner place with a romantic setting in the Long Beach area?
i live in long beach. there is no romance.
seriously, though, if you don't mind the food, the queen mary is kind of art-deco cool. you might like lasher's, though maybe not romantic enough. question back: what is the SW&D definition of "romantic"?
its been a few years, but maybe check out Michael's. it seemed romantic-y if I recall correctly. maybe its another restaurant i'm thinking of....i just remember it was someone's first name as the name of the restaurant.
yeah, michael's is a good bet. or it has been in the past ... havent' eaten there in a couple years.
A friend of a friend owns the Sky Room in LB. I heard it is nice, never bene though.....
sky room does have a great view. food is secondary. and then tehre's the part about having to enter through the lobby of an old folk's home. being greeted by somebody nodding and drooling in a wheelchair is kind of a "memento mori" date-killer. or it could inspire you to live it up while you can.
Best Peking Duck in LA area? I saw The Duck House across the Street from Elite in Monterey Park...want to go with a few friends and just have some good authentic peking duck.
HA! Had no idea, never been before, but I've read decent reviews.
looking for a place that sells some nice black denim in LA, something like naked and famous, dior, etc. Also, any retailers of rick owens, raf, lanvin, common projects, and other harder to find brands?
