Los Angeles Dish of the Month (June 2013) - Nominations

Where has the year gone? It's almost June!

And with that, it's time to choose a Dish of the Month for Los Angeles for June 2013.

The May 2013 Dish of the Month (meatballs) was a wonderful experience in all things circular and spherical. So lets see what's in store -- geometric or otherwise -- for us LA 'Hounds in June.

The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for the LA area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible during the month of June, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.

The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (banh mi) but might also be more of a dish category (sandwiches). It's up to everyone here, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best and most interesting versions!

Some ideas off the top of my head to perhaps get the juices flowing:

HUEVOS RANCHEROS
CROISSANTS
PANCAKES
RAGU
MEATLOAF
CRONUTS(?)

Anyway, this is the nomination thread for June 2013…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on May 27), it will be one vote per user.

To nominate a dish, please (please!) post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until 11:59 PM PDT on May 26th.

                1. re: ns1

                  Would think you might want to be a bit more specific.
                  Way too many types to throw them all in one category, be they ramen, spaghetti, or tuna casserole!

                  1. re: carter

                    that's exactly why i want it vague.

                        1. FISH (ie. NOT shellfish)
                          LAMB
                          SPRING ROLLS
                          SOUP
                          BURGERS
                          RIBS

                          1. HUEVOS RANCHEROS

                            Since I have not found good ones.

                              1. Last hours to nominate ...

                                  1. re: A5 KOBE

                                    LOL the email notification from CH put those three things on one line so they read: "SHRIMP CHORIZO HOT DOGS". I'd eat that!

                                    Combining your second and third choices, I'll nominate SAUSAGES, be they bangers, boudin, chorizo, merguez, nuomi chang, salami, shokoladnaya kolbasa*, som moo, soondae, wursts, etc.

                                    *I guess that shouldn't count, since it's not technically a sausage...

                                    1. re: PeterCC

                                      hhahaha, I would eat that too depending on what I am doing later that day!

                                      Sausages is a great idea though. Maybe for June? I could see lots of participation for that one.
