This board has been an enormous pleasure and resource for me since I discovered it about a year ago. Now I'd like to call on you one last time to help me create a must-eat list for my last remaining weeks in LA. We will be moving soon, and to a less chow friendly environment I am afraid. I guess it will be my motivation to cook more. But in the meantime, if you only had a few remaining weeks in this grand eating city, and you did not know how often you would be returning, where would you stop to eat one last time?
There are no limits on cuisine, although I'd like to keep the price in check to some extent. High end, casual ethnic, moving target (i.e., truck), temple/fair food, bakeries, ice creameries, etc. It doesn't need to be quintessential LA either - just places that you would sorely miss being able to visit. Our base is the Westside, but if I can (temperaments of babies and packing schedules permitting), I will travel. Thank you, and I will do my best to explore our new little nook in the Pacific Northwest so that I can provide suggestions if you visit.
