The best "unique" dish in L.A.
I'm talking about a menu item that is unique to a specific restaurant and that you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Not looking for things like the best cheese burger or best french toast, unless there's truly a unique spin to it. For example, here's mine:
The Monte Cristo Egg Rolls at North End Caffe in Manhattan Beach. They're wonderfully crispy, filled with succulent kahlua pork, ham, swiss cheese and served with a trio of sauces. They're not your standard egg roll size, either. They're more like mini-burritos. Awesome!
North End Caffe
3421 Highland Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Before Burger Boy bows in, I will mention 26 Beach Cafe, which offers sever unique versions of the burger, notably its huge (and surprisingly good) California Roll Burger. Many of the dishes at Animal (e.g. the foie gras loco moco), the Gorbals (e.g. the bacon wrapped matzoh balls) and Playa (the clam tamale) would handily meet the definition.
