  1. Mariscos Chente's - the pescadero (fish) zarandeado. And it's the best thing I've eaten in quite a while and I eat a lot of great/diverse things. Make sure Sergio is the chef. I call him an alchemist. LM

      Louisiana Mouth,
      the restaurant address given in your post is NOT the location at which sergio, the master, cooks.
      the restaurant that serves sergio's food is located in inglewood near the forum

      on the south side of west imperial highway near the corner of yukon.

        slow week ate @ Itacho the 2 day simmered pork is great, sushi is fresh & currently obsessed w/Gelsons tuna salad go figure.

      2. I was in Vancouver, so I won't brag about the Chinese food I had there, except to say that the gap between Vancouver Chinese food and Los Angeles food has narrowed substantially in the last few years.

        1. Had a great sushi dinner at Maki Zushi Wednesday evening with my wife.

          Second best was steak tacos at home, grilled onion, red pepper and NY Steak last Saturday.

          1. My neighborhood's little homemade Pho shop Saigon Dish in Lawndale. The kind of local place where the owner knows everyones name. Every neighborhood should have a comfort place like this.

              Also had good Calamari steak and really great fresh flour tortillas at Casablanca in Venice.

                Also had a very tasty Italian sausage egg white burrito at Sung Harbor in Santa Monica.

                  Nice to hear about Casablanca still serving that good calamari steak - the closest thing to abalone. Thanks for the update. And of course the nice little lady that makes the fresh tortillas.

                  1. re: Baron

                    She is still there making her great hot tortillas. The place hasn't changed in 25 years complete with the Humphrey Bogart vending machine and that's what I like about it.

              2. Toss-up; Cam the Man's in town, so we hit Marouch, Spicy Thai BBQ, and Tacos Mexicali, all good, so far this week, 'cause you can't get food like that in Columbus, Ohio...
