On the way home from the SM 3rd St. farmers market, I braced myself to pick up something quick and non-chowish for lunch while cruising on Lincoln Blvd (already had too much La Playita and La Isla Bonita lately). I look up on Pico boulevard, and ta da! A new chain of L&L is open in the strip mall next to Tommy's on Pico/Lincoln. It's been open only two weeks.
It's not the greatest Hawaiian bbq ever, but it's solid. One Kalua and lau lau plate later, and I'm a happy girl. (Just how much mayo do they put in the macaroni salad? Yum!) Nice to know that if I need some emergency spam musubi I can now get it on the Westside.
