LA Dish of the Month (April 2013) - Voting

ipsedixit Mar 26, 2013 07:35 AM

Here are the candidates for LA Dish of the Month for April 2013.

I narrowed the nominations down to the following:

SHANK (any kind, e.g. lamb, beef, etc.)

BURRITOS

BURGERS (meat and vegetarian)

Here's a link to the nomination thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/895120

Everyone is welcome to vote once by writing your choice in ALL CAPS. You can vote even if you didn't participate in the nomination round.
Voting will be open until 11:59 PDT on March 31st.

Remember your vote counts. Last month's winner, eggs, edged out second-place runner-up, bean and cheese burritos, by one little vote. So vote and be heard!

Thanks again for everyone's participation.

      sorry guys, shank = fall/winter, not spring/summer.

        SHANK

          I'd love to get on board with shanks, but I see it as more of a late Fall/Winter dish.

          I'll go with BURGERS

                  I sense this coming down to a burgers v. burritos battle ...

                  With less than 1% of the precincts reporting, CBS News reports it's still too close to call.

                              SHANKS
                              Burgers is too broad a category, meaning separating beef ones from veggie ones, for example.
                              Burritos is a very good alternative, yet also quite broad in scope. Comparing bean/cheese ones to carnitas to carne asada to any seafood version just creates too many options. needs to be narrower in scope.
                              just an opinion you understand...

                                I think having more options is better, as more people will post. I mean I'd love to hear a good Bean n Cheese burrito as I don't usually eat those.

                                  Bean and cheese just gets in the way of the meat filling IMO ;-)

                                      The bean and cheese won't get in the way of the meat ... if there's no meat, right?

                                        I view that the same way as I view vegetarian dumplings...not much point in consuming that then ;-)

                                          I actually love vegetarian dumplings. Good vegetarian dumplings are often better than good meat dumplings.

                                            Seasonings can go all over the map, and in the hands of the proper cooks/chefs...

                                              Hmm, I have yet to have a vegetarian dumpling equal to my favorite pork/shrimp/vegetable dumpling combo. Once had a leek, tofu, and cellophane noodle dumpling that was tasty but not nearly as good as a well made pork/tofu/vegetable one.

                                              I don't recall any vegetable dumpling post from you for dumpling DOM kind sir :-)

                                                I prefer vegetarian samosas over chicken samosas for this reason. Samosa is a dumpling per the DOM thread.

                                                  Have you ever tried the meat (beef) samosa at Chutney's http://www.lachutneys.com/ in WLA? Love those things.

                                                    nah, I don't get to WLA that much cuz of the traffic. My WLA "to eat" list is a mile long.

                                                    UP next: samosa house pani puri.

                                                    Can't argue there. Also prefer vegetarian samosas over meat.

                                                              Just a reminder folks. Only about 12 hours left to vote.

                                                              So be heard.

                                                              Remember, vote ONCE and vote often!
