It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for Los Angeles for February 2013
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, 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 (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions!
This is the nomination thread for February 2013…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on January 28), it will be one vote per user.
To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until January 28th.
LA Chowhound ipsedixit has volunteered to take on the coordinator role for Dish of the Month. So, be on the lookout for his posts about the voting and reporting here forward.
