‘Eating L.A.’

Portland, Maine: Bagels, beer and Bigfoot make it just as groovy as its West Coast cousin

Bite into Maine lobster trailer at Portland lighthouse Still a California girl, I had never been north of New Hampshire before, so a recent week in Rhode Island seemed like a good excuse to drive up to Maine. Lured by lobster and having heard that Portland is a great beer town, I was eager to [...]


Andrew Zimmern, Guy Fieri, Paul Prudhomme, Ming Tsai and more hit town for L.A. Food and Wine festival

This weekend, well-known chefs and food personalities are hitting town for the lavish, spread-out Los Angeles Food and Wine festival at L.A. Live, in Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. Though they’re both sold out, I’m looking forward to tasting food from The Slanted Door’s Charles Phan and TV’s Ming Tsai, who will be at [...]


Hoy Ka Thai Noodles: Familiar flavors with a new name

 BBQ trio of pork over rice The Thai town restaurant scene is constantly evolving, and though old favorites like Jitlada, Sapp and Ruen Pair are still going strong, it’s always worth checking out the newer — or renamed — entries. Formerly Ord Noodles, now spiffed up with a new sign and known as Original Hoy [...]


Roadfood’s ruin: What hath Guy Fieri wrought?

Like other food-obsessed Americans, I spent the years before the Internet poring over Jane and Michael Stern’s guidebooks Roadfood and Goodfood. I dog-eared, highlighted and nearly memorized them as we drove from L.A. to New Orleans to Memphis, through Nebraska and Iowa and back.

Gastronomico: How many forks did it get in the Los Feliz Ledger?

Gastronomico: where dubious decor meets delicious dishes EatingLA returned to try more dishes at Gastronomico on Hillhurst Ave. for a review in the Los Feliz Ledger. Here’s an excerpt from the review.  crispy Yukon gold potatoes The casual Los Feliz cafe Gastronomico is at first a bit hard to grasp, but stick with it and [...]


Sycamore Kitchen: The neighborhood spot La Brea needed

In the 1990s, lunchers along La Brea were happy with spots like Rita Flora, Maison et Cafe and Sonora Cafe. After all, you can’t always spend three hours at Campanile, and there’s no place to eat items bought at the bakery. So Sycamore Kitchen, the more casual spot from Hatfield’s Karen and Quinn Hatfield, is [...]


Baja’s best plus local food artisans hit Saturday’s L.A. Street Food fest

Mariscos La Guerrerense’s wonderful Ensenada seafood tostada stand The L.A. Street Food festival is actually in Pasadena, but this summer’s edition features a wide array of native to L.A. food trucks, a clutch of the city’s best artisanal foodcrafters and most unique of all, several chefs and stands coming up from Baja California and bringing [...]


Reading list: Urban Radish & Bloomfest to DT; Roy Choi in the NYTimes; Ottavia Bourdain’s meaty diet

Some Friday links we’re reading about with varying degrees of appetite, lust or horror: Sustenance for Arts District dwellers: Urban Radish is a "farm fresh community market to shop for seasonal fresh produce, high quality meats and seafood, dairy and other daily necessities." Downtown dwellers are likely chuffed to have this market on Mateo St. [...]


Lucky Rice comes to L.A.: A different kind of night market

Lukshon’s soft shell crab with sambal kacang If you were disappointed by not getting anything to eat at Pasadena’s packed 626 Night Market, or live on the Westside, you might prefer Lucky Rice’s first L.A. Night Market, a nighttime tasting event Aug. 4 at H.D. Buttercup at the Helms complex, hosted by Lukshon/Father’s Office chef/owner [...]


Casa Bianca Pizza’s old-school charm: The classics series

The pizza you grew up with often becomes your platonic ideal of pizza. In my case, that would probably be Di Vita’s, which still turns out a credible pie in West L.A. Or maybe it was the pizza you ate in college — our go-to place was The Brass Ass, which must have piled several [...]
