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

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

It's our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Woohoo!

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 November 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 four our One Year Anniversary might be something very specific (Walleye tuna fish maw) but might also be more of a dish category (Venus cockroaches). 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:

PUMPKIN
SOUP
LION'S HEAD MEATBALLS
THANKSGIVING DINNER ITEMS
O-NIGIRI
POT PIE
PECAN PIE

Anyway, this is the nomination thread for November 2013…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on October 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 PT on October 26th.

      1. re: Juji

        you know, I originally voted for this BUT...none of us will actually eat any of the thanksgiving dinner items until 11/25 or so.

      2. Here I go again...
        PANCAKES AND WAFFLES

        1. LIVER

          In all its levels of ambiguity: fish, fowl, beef, whatever.

          1. SOUP (especially wonton soup).
