i'll be in town this long weekend and am wanting the LA ethnic food experience. from all my research on this board, this is what i've narrowed my eating itinerary down to.
what do you guys think?
Izakaya – Musha
Dim Sum – 888 (or Ocean Star?)
XLB – Din Tai Fung
Fish tacos – Tacos Baja Ensenada
Sichuan – Chung King
Burger – Father’s Office
Ramen – Daikokuya (or Santouka?)
Sushi – Sasabune
i want to mainly concentrate on chinese and japanese cuisines. i want to try beverly soon tofu on another trip, b/c i just had korean tofu soup recently. i want to skip korean bbq b/c i'll be going out afterwards and don't want my clothes to smell. i get plenty of good vietnamese in houston. nothing will ever beat lotus of siam in vegas and i get pretty authentic thai in houston too.
I want to spend some time walking around and exploring little tokyo. if santouka is better than daikokuya, where should i eat on sawtelle blvd? any shops or stores you recommend visiting?
also, i only have 3 full eating days, so i'm not sure how i'm going to squeeze all these places in. i am definitely not opposed to going to several places and "snacking" at each for lunch. can anyone help group them for me by location so i can hit multiple places in a row?
