Ten days left in June, so it is time for nominations for July.
We all know the drill by now, but in case you do not: The idea is this -- we 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 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 (chili fries) but might also be more of a dish category (potatoes). 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!
Anyway, this is the nomination thread for July 2015 …you can nominate or second as many dishes as you want, but once we get to the voting thread, it will be one vote per user. The dishes that get the most nomination votes will advance to the voting thread. I will try to follow sentiment, but I'm going to exercise discretion and not sweat choosing nominees for the voting thread.
To nominate or second a dish, please (please!) post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until I go to bed on June 26th.
