This issue, on newsstands now, is just terrific, for LA Chowhounders. Just FYI.

      Not me! I am loving that issue and (as I stated in the other post) I'm not a fan of L.A. But that issue is making it grow on me and not dread my next visit to Calabasas. Loved the article about salads. Really good stuff. One of the best issues I've received in a long time.

      And I would like to add that it's a fun read for non-LA hounds as well. I'm stuck here in the food-blighted part of the Midwest, so I am enjoying the LA food vicariously.

        It's kind of annoying for everyone else (if, by "everyone else," I mean me), since I've never had reason to set foot in LA and don't anticipate having one. It's too bad. The food sounds awesome.

          I passed by the newsstand yesterday and noticed the LA issue, but thought it was just another fluff piece. I guess I'll have to go back and get the issue. I'm still hoping someone will do a whole issue dedicated to Chinese Food in LA/San Gabriel Valley. Or cover Little Saigon in OC.

            There is mention of Little Saigon, namely Westminster, in this issue of Saveur. Doesn't do it justice, from the basis of my all too brief day tripa couple years ago. Want to go back.

              yeah the San Gabriel Valley and Asian food scene in the general LA area doesn't get enough recognition.

              The issue did highlight some parts of the SGV and for dimsum suggestions they gave it to Elite which IMO is a perfect choice for dimsum!

              That's easy: the reason to go to L.A. is to eat.

              So many people think LA is movie stars and palm trees and I think Saveur did an incredible job of just showing the rest of the country that they do have a food culture. I have read people in LA that have criticized what Saveur has said and they should only be blessed that a magazine with such incredible stature in the epicurean world picked their entire city to bring to the attention of the others who love food. Not only did I learn about the incredible things that LA has to offer, I learned about the jerks in LA that spent more time whining than thanking someone for possibly growing tourism in a lousy economy.
