IKEA, any old where. Ours is in Burbank.
≈I've not been there lately, so I can
only hope they're still offering
Swedish meatballs, potatoes and
a dollop of lingonberry sauce.
Arcadia, CA Din Tai Fung
≈We always order the juicy
pork dumplings and the
spicy green beans. It's too
good to think about changing.
Glendale, CA Dinah's
≈At a longtime Glendale landmark, you can get a
2 piece plate with a side order and a roll with
apple butter for under $6.
Glendora, CA The Donut Man
≈It's a long way to go for a doughnut, but where
else can you get such yummy stuff?
Los Angeles, Tam 'O Shanter
≈There are many
reasons to visit
the least of which
is that they offer
a C.C.Brown hot
Pasadena, CA, Pie 'N Burger
≈In 'N Out burgers may be almost just as good but
you can't end your meal with a slice of pie.
I'm not a fan of French fries usually, but I discovered that if I order them "Medium well", it's a different matter.
Various locations, Beard Papa
≈Cream puffs, par excellence!
Eagle Rock, CA, Camilo's
≈Too sinful to indulge in mini
pecan waffles very often. I justify ordering them on special occasions such as Mother's Day
Montrose, CA Divina Cucina
≈Even when spaghetti a la carbonara doesn't
show on the menu, most Italian restaurants are
willing to put a serving together.
Los Angeles, CA Pacific Dining Car
≈ Eggs, scrambled with chunks of cream cheese are
so much better than plain scrambled eggs. And
easy to make at home.
At home....... I've heard this referred to as "toad in the hole", but
that's not what I call it. Cut a hole in the center of a slice of
bread. Drop an egg in it, fry to the doneness you like. Voila!
P.S. This entry has challenged me for hours. When I changed the text to "large" (so you could read it) everything went out of kilter. For the sake of sanity, I'm through.
