For me as a LA resident, In-N-Out is probably one of my favorite fast-food burgers - but I always get it 'animal style' where the patty is cooked in mustard, then served with grilled onions, pickles, and extra sauce. A vast improvement over the regular burger, I think. In-N-Out's fries are truly horrible. Some people prefer Five Guys for their top fast-food burger, or there is also The Counter for a slightly more upscale (but still not expensive) burger. Umami is tied for my #1 burger in LA - although they expanded kind of rapidly and I feel that the quality suffered some as a result. Their truffle-cheese used to be a lot more truffle-y! My other favorite is the Father's Office burger (if you go there also get their sweet potato fries)! Some people say the burger at the Lazy Ox Canteen is really good but I haven't been there yet. Anyway, I enjoy your blog posts as always - thank you! Hope you enjoy being in LA!

I'm not even sure how I found your blog, since it's been so long since I subscribed... anyway, I've loved reading it and thought I'd say hi. It's really enjoyable seeing your perspective on things. Thanks for writing, and Happy New Year!! :) - Jeanie

I'd been looking forward to this dinner since it was a rumor floating around a few months ago. If you haven't heard of it yet, LQ@SK is the collaboration between Chef Laurent Quenioux and Starry Kitchen in downtown LA. I'd been to the normal LQ@SK dinner as well as Bistro... Continue reading

Ok so if there are four words that don't go together, they are the ones in this title. But.. I can't deny it. see the evidence below: Yogurtland is/was having a special 'collaboration' with Sanrio and all the big name characters like Hello Kitty and Chococat (my fave!!). Of course,...

So I've had Beer Belly on my mind ever since the event Wolvesmouth had there - the space was pretty cool, and I was continually tantalized by their twitter feed promising stuff like cherry coke lamb chops.. so I *finally* made it back there two weeks ago.. lazy-me means this... Continue reading

When planning the menu for my first little dinner party (post about that coming soon!), I thought it would be super fancy to serve as an amuse the 'arpege egg' like the one I had eaten (and loooved) at Manresa. How hard could it be, right? I got myself down... Continue reading

I have a little garden on my apartment balcony with strawberries, squash, and tomatoes. The strawberries are just starting to ripen, and I'll have my first tomato soon too - I'm so excited! I go out to water the plants every day before work, and I noticed that I had... Continue reading

This post is really late, but better late than never, right? On June 28th, my best friend Tiff and I had the opportunity to (finally!) eat at the pop-up that BeerBelly hosted for Wolvesmouth. The way we got the tickets to go was kind of funny.. the original tickets sold... Continue reading

I went over to a friend's house tonight for a small group dinner and he was making chicken tacos. I said I would bring a salad, so I had to think of something that would go with what he was making.. I had also just bought some jalapeños that morning... Continue reading

Last night my friend was like 'hey, come over for dinner, we're going to make Korean BBQ.' Super yum. They got a plate for their grill so everything wouldn't fall through, and we grilled up short ribs and spicy pork, and my friend made side dishes of squash, spinach, and... Continue reading

So I get a regular email from the Domaine Chandon people asking me to buy their wine and also sending party tips, recipes, etc. I stay subscribed to the winery's newsletter for a few reasons - they have a wonderful Michelin starred restaurant, Etoile, on their grounds which I have...

Dishes made with mole - and especially mole negro - are probably my favorites in all of Mexican food. I started buying mole pastes to try - making the paste myself is a little overly ambitious but it's very easy to use the paste to make a quick meal. The... Continue reading

Ok, this post needs a serious introduction because I'm sure most people who read this title will immediately be like 'wtf...' Wolvesmouth is a reference to the chef Craig Thornton, who is the mastermind/chef/planner/pretty much everything behind the informal supper club Wolvesmouth. After seeing that a few of his recipes...

mmmm.. I used to be OBSESSED with brunch. Nowadays I usually am too lazy to go in search of delicious brunchy options, but I do love a good french toast or a corned beef hash and eggs. Unfortunately neither was offered at Cafe Chloe where I ended up at brunch... Continue reading

I never made cream puffs (aka profiteroles) before, but I am borrowing a copy of the Michael Ruhlman book 'Ratio' and he declared how easy it was to make pâte à choux, and how it was a shame that more people haven't tried to make this dough. So I thought... Continue reading

Bria brought these cookies to our book club meeting and we were all scarfing them down like crazy.. they're seriously good. A couple months later I was like.. 'hey.. so those cookies you brought.. is that the recipe on your blog?' and she was like 'Yeah, they are!'. And so... Continue reading
