Recommendations for LA

Looking for recommendations for LA, and a rough idea of price.

I know about Pat's, and Jeff's, and Tierra del Sur (I know it's not LA). Looking for additional recommendations.

Thanks,

    Brami's Pizza makes a yummy stuffed pretzel with cheese and spinach or cheese and jalapenos. You can also buy them par baked and bake completely at home. 2 locations - Reseda and North Hollywood.

      Any LA updates? Considering a trip end of month and wondering about top food experiences worth hitting over a 3-day trip. La Seine all its cracked up to be? Has anyone gotten the chef's tasting menu there? comparable to Pardes? Any excellent Mexican out there? Been to Jeff's, Tierra del Sur, Pat's, Fish Grill, La Gondola on previous trip.

        I've heard many good things about Mexikosher (?). I had lunch there and was not impressed with the quality of burrito, but the thing was huge, and fleishig, and not all that expensive ($10 is a lot for lunch, but I probably could have gotten 2 lunches out of the deal.) The thing is, lots of other people really, really like the place. To me, the fillings of a burrito should each have a distinct taste and texture, yet be complementary. The items were placed inside one at a a time, but the thing tasted like everything was mushed together, with the singular consistency of mush.

        Also, if you like sushi, Le Sushi in Valley Village is far better than Sushiko. Sushiko is more entertaining.

          There's a new Thai kosher place called Beverly Hills. Thai on Burton Way right off off Doheny. It's a small place with a small menu- it converted to kosher in January and I hear they will enlarge the menu soon. Meanwhile, I've been twice. They make an amazing coconut soup and I've had several of their noodle dishes whichbrun about $13 per entree. The soup was $7 a bowl nd while it's not huge, it was certainly enough.

          There is also Burger Bar on Pico, a new PitaWay on Melrose and Fuller on the othrbside of town, and Saba Sushi on Melrosecas well that I was told is under kehilla.

          Also, Chappa Grill which has shwarama and falafel (really good) on Wilshire and Crescent Heights (also newly kosher) and on Wilshire and La Jolla there's Paris Cafe which is a dairy place.

          Nah! The egg rolls. Just don't look around too carefully at the place.

            Craig, who certainly knows his Chinese food, said not to bother with Chick'n'Chow's Chinese offerings, so I didn't. So I can't comment on the egg rolls.

              Well it's not Chinese food like any self-respecting Chinese would eat but the eggrolls are really good and we like their food better than the much nicer (clean, tablecloths, etc.) Shanghai Glatt. My family likes it but that's on a scale of "should we get pizza or Chinese?"

              More chow than Chowhound if you know what I mean.

          I second breakfast at Delice Bakery.
          My husband loves the steak at La Seine, but pricey. Very nice ambiance - not your typical kosher steak house decor with wood burning fireplaces. I've been addicted lately to the tuna shawarma at Nana (dairy, Israeli, casual cafe) and I also like their soups and jachnoon. Sushi at Sushiko. Very casual lunch at Got Kosher, very busy on Fridays so get there right when they open, try their Bluefin Tuna Fricasse sandwiches on warm brioche.

            Oh and pizza, bean chimichangas and eggplant yummies at Pizza World.

                Jeff's. No atmosphere unless you are a teenager/college student but the best hot dogs, sausage, burgers, deli ANYWHERE.

                  Assuming things haven't changed in the few years since we were last in LA, those are all very good choices. I would also highly recommend a breakfast/brunch at Delice Bakery, followed by some of their delicious cakes and pastries.
