Dog Haus

Dog Haus

WHY Serious dogs served on grilled King’s Hawaiian bread. WHAT These are solid, substantial hot dogs, often topped with bacon and/or chili. Skip the heavy, bland El Mariachi, but consider the BLAST dog, with bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato and serrano chili, and by all means try the tater tots. The addition of a beer garden [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Retro Dance Party, Art to Eat, Chinatown Summer Nights, and a

It’s the Janis Joplin part of summer right now. Memorial Day is a barely relaxed preview of fun-in-the-sun.  July 4th is all about the sis-boom-bah.  And Labor Day is a last desperate gasp of summer. But now, the living really is easy. The days are soft.  The nights are cool.  Your daddy’s rich and your [...]

Banh Mi My Tho

Banh Mi My Tho

WHY Some of the San Gabriel Valley’s best Vietnamese sandwiches come out of this tiny Alhambra mini-mall deli. WHAT A to-go operation with friendly counter service, Banh Mi My Tho packs a lot into a minuscule storefront: a half-dozen types of banh mi sandwiches, hot Vietnamese broken-rice and noodle-based meals, snacks like meatballs on a [...]

Good Girl Dinette

Good Girl Dinette

WHY Vietnamese-American comfort food in a stylishly barren Highland Park café. WHAT We’re so happy that chef Diep Tran’s hip yet family-friendly spot finally started serving lunch, especially because her Grandma’s Pho, pork baguette sandwich, spicy fries and delicious curry chicken pot pie are great midday dishes. And we’re just as happy to come for [...]

Cafecito Orga‡nico

Cafecito Orga‡nico

WHY A mellow alternative to Silver Lake’s over-caffeinated coffee scene. WHAT Housed in a faux-lighthouse building on none-too-gentrified Hoover Street, this place started selling organic fair-trade beans at local farmers’ markets before opening the café. With free WiFi, a large covered patio and baked goods from Echo Park’s Delilah Bakery, it’s a funky and calm [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Lit For King Eddy, Bloomfest Blooms, Soda Pop Love

Yes, it rained in L.A.  in July.  Global warming or sign of the imminent Apocalypse?  You be the judge. Given the aforementioned possible portent of doom, it’s fitting that this weekend, it’s all about celebrating the old old school… …while you still can. Reading and Drinking and Diving The King Eddy is Skid Row’s last [...]

Meals by Genet

Meals by Genet

WHY Diverse Ethiopian flavors elevated for a white-tablecloth world. WHAT Proprietor Genet Agonafer’s restaurant is the only one of its kind in Little Ethiopia, a serious, almost formal place unlike its more casual neighbors. But Meals by Genet isn’t stiff—it’s homey and warm and alive with spice. The menu is succinct, consisting of a half-dozen [...]
