What restaurant dish if you have to eat it for 30 days straight...GO

Alright, I feel like I've got a good one here. If you have to choose one dish from one LA restaurant to eat for 30 consecutive days, what would it be? First instinct is to choose your single favorite dish, but its deeper than that, it has to be something you wouldn't tire of for that duration either.

Let's hear it.

My nominations:

1) Fish ceviche tostada at La Playita (I've already done it 3 days in a row once)
2) Malibu Seafood fried fish & chips
3) Arby's roast beef sandwich (embarrassing, I know)
4) Decent Bun Cha (China Beach)?

  1. Nam sod with crispy rice from Thai Nakorn
    I can't stop eating it .. yum

      Mmm...that sounds good, I'll have that. What is it?

      1. re: ElJeffe

        it's awesome: ground pork, onion, ginger, ground peanuts, lime juice, with cilantro & lettuce leaves and crispy rice. kind of spicy/sour/savory.
        I can eat an order by myself .. might have to balance with mee krob & either crispy catfish mango salad or papaya salad.
        Man, now I want Thai food.

        1. re: ErikaK

          I got to drive by the new location yesterday on a trip to the OC, lamenting living now far away from my old haunts. Lucky to all you who get to go to Thai Nakorn regularly, enjoy.

          Does anyone know, is there anywhere that makes good nam sod near Pasadena? I used to get it at Chandra once in a while, but the last 2 times, the ginger was completely cooked and very underportioned, and the pork hadn't been drained, it was really greasy, and there were hardly any peanuts or lime, and the taste was off, sorry to go on and on. I prefer cabbage, really fresh and crispy to go with. The last time I had it, I cannot remember where, sorry, there were no greens at all, not even green onions, and it was really bland.

          I really miss a really spicy gingery nam sod. (Some places put both ground and peanuts both, yummm.)

          1. re: MaryT

            Besides Thai Nakorn, I had good nam sod at the Wat Thai temple in North Hollywood; they do that food festival on the temple grounds every weekend. Unfortunately, I heard that the festival no longer takes place anymore.

            Regarding eating one dish for 30 days straight - yuck! I'm not sure I could do that. When I first started college, I discovered the In N Out across the street. I fell in love with the double-double. I ate one for dinner for 5 days straight, and that's about the most I've ever eaten the same food in a row. I had to lay off for like 3 months before I could go back.

            So I figure if that's the best I could with a double-double, probably ain't no other dish that would come close to that kind of longevity.

          2. re: ErikaK

            Sounds like Lao/NE Thai laab with peanuts added and fish sauce subtracted.

            1. re: Sam Fujisaka

              Actually, Nam (Sod) Khao Tod. Similar region in origin, but an unrelated dish, as the meat is soured in a different fashion than just the lime itself, the crispy rice is different from the toasted rice, etc.

              A lot of NE Thai dishes will sound very similar upon a casual reading of some of their ingredients, but actually taste fairly different.

              1. re: Quincetessence

                Nam Sod - is sour because it is raw fermented ground pork.
                "Nam" - means fermented meat, usually pork, in Thai
                "Sod" - means raw in Thai.

                1. re: siamro364228

                  In Lao language (and Thai), "Nam" refers to fermented meat (i.e. pork) and "Sod" actually means fresh...it doesn't mean raw.

                  Sam Fujisaka is actually partially correct. Nam Sod is a generic name used for two different, but similar Lao dishes.

                  It's either a version of the Lao dish called Nam Khao, but with more fermented pork and less crispy deep-fried rice.

                  However, it's also commonly used to refer to a slightly different version of a Lao minced meat dish called Pork Larb, but with sliced, raw ginger as a key ingredient, which gives it that fresh ("sod") quality. Toasted rice is omitted from this recipe. Peanuts are also added to give it some additional texture. These changes give the Pork Larb a "Nam Khao"-like taste, but with the flavor of ginger.

                  ----
                  Basics of Lao salads/wraps:

                  Nam Khao (Thod) = deep-fried rice balls with fermented pork.

                  Larb = minced meat with toasted rice, but without ginger and peanuts.

                  Nam Sod = two different versions
                  1) Larb with ginger and peanuts, but no toasted rice.
                  2) Nam Khao with more fermented pork and less deep-fried rice.

                  "Tam"-type salad = pounded salad made with shredded, unripened fruits like papaya. (i.e. Tam Mak Hoong / Som Tam)

                  "Yum"-type salad = spicy and tangy salad.

                  etc...

      2. Spicy chicken border burrito at Eduardo's. I'm a burrito freak and this is by far the best chicken I've had at an LA taqueria. Possibly the chicken shawarma at Sham, provided it's always moist and comes with an unlimited supply of garlic sauce.

        1. re: a_and_w

          This sounds delicious and by a burrito freak's endorsement!! Where is Eduardo's???

          1. re: mrshankly

            Westwood just south of Santa Monica Blvd. in the mini-mall with Peet's. My advice is to order your burrito "to go" even if you plan to stay so they'll wrap it in foil. Otherwise, you run into my one complaint, which is that the tortillas sometimes break. One caveat -- I'm a "mission" burrito freak, which isn't always the preferred style in LA.

            1. re: a_and_w

              Thanks!!! I've got a burrito for you (and it's worth driving for)... the truck parked on Colorado Blvd in Eagle Rock just west of Eagle Rock Blvd in front of the Comfort Inn. It's there from 8pm to 3am and I've been eating the all-meat burrito for over 20 years. This stuff is amazing!!! Give it a shot and see what you think.

              1. re: mrshankly

                What kind of meat do you usually get? I will have to try it - thanks mrshankly!

                1. re: WildSwede

                  They only have carne asada... but THAT has kept this place running for at least 20 years. I usually get it with just meat and cheese, but if that's not for you you can get it the standard way... meat and salsa (ask for cheese if he doesn't put it in on the standard burrito). BTW, the guy who owns the truck makes his own salsa as well. Also, try the meat quesadilla... the tomato sauce he lightly puts in the quesadilla makes it taste fantastic!!! I think you'll really enjoy it. Let me know what you think... mrshankly@mac.com

                2. re: mrshankly

                  Belated thanks for the tip, mrshankly! There are a number of places I've been meaning to try in Eagle Rock, and this truck just joined the list. A word of advice re Eduardo's -- you may want to order the traditional burrito rather than the "border" if you prefer all meat.

                  1. re: aching

                    It's a San Francisco Bay Area burrito, named after the Mission District, known most for its size in my opinion, but I think Mission Burrito fans will point to the inclusion of rice, whereas a lot of San Diegans like to eliminate rice outright.

                    1. re: SauceSupreme

                      Sounds delicious! I get my car washed at the place next door, so I definitely will plan my next car wash to coincide with lunch!

                      1. re: aching

                        Sauce is right about the rice and they are certainly larger than most So Cal burritos as a result. But there's a common misconception that "Mission" style means "enormous," which really isn't the case. Standard ingredients include rice and beans, salsa fresca, and cheese. Guacamole and sour cream are usually extra (i.e., a "super" burrito). The tortillas are typically grilled and sometimes steamed to melt the cheese and make the whole thing stay together better when rolled and wrapped in aluminum foil to make a "silver torpedo." Also, in marked contrast to many So Cal taquerias, chicken at Mission joints is usually marinated, cooked, etc. with the same care as asada, al pastor, etc.

              1. Breakfast: Pretty sure I could have the eggs benedict with vegetarian sausage and perfect home fries from Overland Cafe for breakfast for 30 days straight and still be asking for more.

                Lunch: Tough because it's my least favorite meal, but I'd say the veggie burger at Novel Cafe; or the dearly departed Melrose Burger from Urth.

                Dinner: It's probably a cop-out to say the vegetarian thali at Star of India, since that's several dishes, but I'd gladly eat that or the veggie plate from one of the Ethiopian places every night indefinitely. For a single dish I'd probably have to go with enchiladas verde from Lula or the Tostada Pizza from, yes, CPK.

                      I went to Las Fuentes a couple of weeks ago and got my norm - Burrito de Bistek Encebollado. Unfortunately, they have apparently stopped putting cheese and avocado in it. I was very disappointed (I have been eating this burrito there since they opened in the early 80's and have never had it without those two items).
                      My 30-days straight item - Pho Tai from Pho 79 in Alhambra. I could eat that for 60 days straight! So good!!

                      1. re: WildSwede

                        That is really disappointing to hear about Las Fuentes. I've been loving them since then as well. I might begrudgingly be able to forgive that as long as the quality of their grilled meats and fresh salsa stay in line. I still love this place. I'll have to ask about it next time I'm in the neighborhood. That's for the update.

                        1. re: WildSwede

                          Can you still ask for cheese and avocado in it or is it just unavailable? I've never tried their burrito... I usually go for the carne con queso taco and the carnitas taco and have no room left for the burrito.lol.

                          1. re: mrshankly

                            I just assumed it would have come the way it always has been (I never had to ask - just ordered the burrito by name): meat, grilled onions, avocado and cheese. Have never had to ask for it, so it did not even cross my mind. Next time, I will definitely be mentioning it. It is a good burrito with just the meat and onions (slathered in their avocado salsa and some hot pico de gallo), but the wonderfulness of the slices of avo and the cheese all melty just takes it over the top! ;-)

                          2. re: WildSwede

                            I could definately eat Pho Tai for 30 days straight! I like Pho So 1, though.

                        2. Any dish? Well, Chinese roast duck (preferably Peking duck) with hot steaming fragrant jasmine rice served after a bowl of savory shark fin soup.

                          1. Every weekday I wake up early for a pre-dawn powerwalk, topped off with a breakfast burrito with egg whites at Fred 62.

                            Would I recommend you drive from San Juan Capistrano for this dish? No.

                            Is it the best breakfast I've ever had? Hardly.

                            Am I interested in going anywhere else or changing my order? Absolutely not.

                              1. Ceviche for 30 days sounds too much like being stranded on a desert island. Calories aside, I'd be tempted by:
                                Rubio's Fish Taco Especial combo
                                or if it was freezing outside, maybe a shrimp tempura udon noodle soup with duck from somewhere

                                              This would be my choice. Pho Dac Biet from Pho 79 in San Gabriel takes top honors but I'm kind of fickle so ask me next week where I want my beef-noodle fix.

                                              Incidentally, pho is a traditional breakfast dish, brunch if you want to stretch it. Take away some broth, add in more meat and you have a nice hearty dinner. Its water-content makes you a lot fuller than usual, so honestly all I need is one great big bowl once a day, and I'm set.

                                                I second korean tofu stew and pan chan. You get the best variety that way!

                                              2. this is sort of a fantasy list so i'm going to pretend i can still have gluten...

                                                breakfast: hugo's - oatmeal frittata with yogurt & strawberries
                                                lunch: houston's - veggie burger [no cheese, side of hickory bbq sauce]
                                                dinner: the ivy - grilled vegetable salad with shrimp [i would have said sushi, but that's not "one dish"]
                                                dessert/snack: sno:la frozen yogurt

                                                  how is sno:la? and what flavors are best? i'm thinking of trying it for lunch today.

                                                  1. re: OliveRuth

                                                    it's awesome. oh, how i miss it! my favorite is the chocolate/sour cherry combo.

                                                    1. re: OliveRuth

                                                      OliveRuth, did you have a chance to try it? i'd love to know what you thought.

                                                      1. re: OliveRuth

                                                        i adore snola.
                                                        they will happily let you try all their flavors before you make a selection.
                                                        that way, you can select the 'best' flavor for your very own palate.
                                                        be aware, though, that this is a tart style of frozen yogurt, as opposed to one that is an ice-cream-copy.

                                                    2. some downtown picks:
                                                      1) a turkey & cheese croissant from Nazo's Bakery for breakfast
                                                      2) a chicken gyro greek salad from George's Greek Cafe (very healthy and balanced)
                                                      3) chef's choice sashimi at Sushi Gen
                                                      healthy, balanced, and tasty.

                                                      1. I guess no one thinks sushi is an everyday/30 days food. I would pick the nigiri special at Kaido in Santa Monica. At $8.00, a real bargain.

                                                        1. I have no doubt that I could eat the crab cake from Water Grill everyday for a month without getting sick of it.

                                                          1. I'd be looking for one of those "every bite is a little different" type of dishes. The one that keeps coming to mind is the al bap (assorted caviars over rice) from Odaesan in Koreatown--especially if you get to count the panchan as part of the "one dish". (Hate to think what my cholesterol would look like after 30 straight days of fish eggs, though!)

                                                              fish tacos from best fish tacos in ensenada, located on hillhurst

                                                              so refreshing and tasty

                                                            2. 30 days?

                                                              Definitely, the Lasagna Verde from Angelini Osteria. Then I would pop across the street to Milk and have a a malted milk shake 30 days in a row. Man, would I be fat and happy!

                                                              1. This would be even better if we combined this and the Gold thread, so that it was 30 days and then the world would end. Then I would eat whatever I wanted, price and calories be damned. And put it all on my Mastercard!

                                                                1. supreme pizza bread from Lil' Gourmet.

                                                                      1. ceviche trio (no shrimp, double seabass) from border grill
                                                                        lobster cavatelli from grace

                                                                          1. The chow fun at A-1 Chinese BBQ in Lomita. I've actually had dreams about climbing on top of a large mountain made out of their chow fun and eating my way down. 30 days of chow fun sounds like heaven.

                                                                            1. 1) Carls Jr Bacon Swiss Crispy Chicken Sandwich

                                                                                chirashi sushi at takumi, or sashimi deluxe special at gen,
                                                                                maybe taquiza's burritos if I get the run of the salsas. . .
                                                                                someone's pad thai, but i'M NOT SURE WHOSE...

                                                                              2. Here are my top five that I'd die from heart stoppage before tiring of it:

                                                                                1) Butter- poached king crab legs from Providence
                                                                                2) Butterfish or Spanish mackeral nigiri from Sushi Zo
                                                                                3) Chicken chili verde tamales from Gallego's
                                                                                4) Egg custard tarts from Elite
                                                                                5) Pineapple froyo from Yogurtland, or blueberry froyo from Farm Boy (both Pinkberry knock-offs)

                                                                                I almost included the crispy shrimp in rice rolls from Elite, the corned beef from Magee's and the Gigi salad from the Palm, but I think I might get sick of those dishes after a couple days. I also love the homemade tortillas from Paco's or El Torito Grill, but I had similar ones in Mexico last week that I tired of after four days -- couldn't go the distance with those.

                                                                                1 Reply

                                                                                  In no particular order:
                                                                                  1) Suh-kuh (mixed) soon tofu at Sokongdong Soondubu
                                                                                  2) Brown rice bowl with veggies and tofu at Nook Bistro
                                                                                  3) Steak frites (hangar steak) at Mimosa
                                                                                  4) Bibimbap at Yongsusan

                                                                                  1. Well right now I'm craving one so I've gotta say an In n Out double double protein style.

                                                                                    Would also have to double my time at the gym.

                                                                                    1. Right now? The baked catfish at Phong Dinh. With all of the ways to customize the way you eat it, plus the bright flavors and range of textures, I might have to go with that. It's really, really delicious.

                                                                                      -----

Falafel, pita, pita chips, hummus, dolmas and greek salad with extra feta. With maybe an orange Fanta to wash it all down. I really don't think I would ever get sick of it.

                                                                                        1. Okay, I can speak for my husband, I think! He'd eat the pulled pork sandwich and macaroni & cheese from Baby Blues in Venice. He'd also eat my carnitas every day straight, but I'm not a restaurant!!

                                                                                            Beverage-wise, the yuzu concoction at Sushi Zo and (if my liver was made of steel) the pineapple infused sake at Matsuhisa.

                                                                                            1. I would have to go with Bravo Style Chicken Tacos from Baja Fish Taco or Bali Bliss Burger from Veggie Grill! YUMMMMMMM to both!

                                                                                              2. Assuming there's no health/caloric penalty, I at least used to fantasize over the pounded steak and country gravy at Musso's. With diplomat pudding, of course.

                                                                                                1. I could eat a Roscoe's waffle or salmon sushi from Hide everyday.. im pretty confident about that.

                                                                                                  1. House Special Noodles at Trieu Chau in Santa Ana.

                                                                                                    I don't live anywhere close to it anymore so sometimes I'll go down on the weekends and get 4 orders to go and eat it for 4 days straight for dinner. Even if I lived close by, I'd have to get it to go since they close so early, but I could refresh my 4 day supply much more often!
