Craving a biscuit!

Have already had them from PANN'S, HUCKLEBERRY and JOHN O'GROATS. Thinking HONEY KETTLE'S or CLEMENTINE'S? Thoughts/Suggestions?

Additionally, does anyone know how the homemade white bread is at AL GELATO?

  1. No biscuit is as good as the ones sold at Surfas. Go to SURFAS and pick up a pack of their frozen "72 layer biscuits" - I'll warn you now, they are pricey but worth it. If you want to taste it first, go to their cafe area and order the 72 layer Biscuit with Kurobata Ham. You will eat every delicious buttery bite! And then buy a second one!

      Sorry to offer a less enthusiastic reply, but I bought a pack of the frozen 72 layer biscuits and most of them are still sitting in my freezer. They're okay, but not great. I'm a huge biscuit lover and while these are definitely worthy of a try -- and perhaps high up on the frozen scale -- I didn't find them nearly on par with good restaurant versions, or the ones I make from scratch.

      Believe it or not, though service and food can be wildly mixed in general, I've had several amazing biscuits at the Waffle on Sunset in Hollywood.

      Another great one is at Quality Food & Beverage on 3rd St.

      Also, not traditional, but BLD has a killer cream cheese and chive one.

          Thank you for this. I've had the one at QUALITY - tasty. I have to have my biscuits with jam so probably won't go with the BLD one but thank you for the suggestion!

            Second the Quality Food & Beverage recommendation. Very good biscuits there.

        2. The buttermilk and chive biscuits at Julienne are quite good, esp. when paired with their fresh made lemon curd.

            Aaaaaah, the lemon curd at Julienne's...

            1. re: liu

              Yeah, that curd could make a shoe leather taste good ...

          2. Definitely try the Clementine biscuits! You can also get them with shaved country ham.

            1. Different but good also, here we go, Popeye's. I know I am gonna get beat up but I like them.

                I inhale Popeye's buttery biscuits like they are cookies. I love them! Only fast food biscuit I can eat.

                  Beat up? Are you kiddin'?

                  1. re: Ciao Bob

                    Thought some people might think I was slummin it? Is it $3.99 or $4.99 a dozen?

                2. I've heard the Williams Sonoma par bake biscuits are amazing.
                  I have never tried them myself however I trust the bread lover who told me this.
                  You can order them online.
