Who wouldve guessed you could get grass fed beef in Highland Park. I found it at Figueroa Produce. Tried it this weekend, going back for more. Might try their organic poultry too.

Now to find good Thai in West Covina, I mean really good Thai!

    That last one is easy; Krua Thai, the Thai dive in NoHo so beloved of Chowhounds, has a branch in West Covina. Try the som tum with blue crab and the house special pad Thai (pad Thai Krua Thai).

      That's great you found a local source that you like. My search has culminated with a small ranch focusing on organic, dry-aged grass-fed beef. I haven't found anything else better: www.alderspring.com

        I went to Figueroa Produce after reading this post. This market carries 100% pastured beef from Open Space Meats. This beef is excellent quality and tastes incredible, well worth paying a little extra for. I'm so glad I found this post, thanks for the great tip rapmapcap. I had given up on finding 100% pastured beef locally. Most places like Whole Foods sell feed lot beef and play a lot of word games to make you think it is not. Whole Foods told me in an email that their beef is fed grass for 1/3 of its life and finished in feed lots. The beef at Figueroa Produce is the real deal.
