It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for Los Angeles for January 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! In SF, the dish of the month inspired a few Chowdowns so people could try the dish together....hopefully this can happen in LA too!
This is the nomination thread for January 2013…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on December 29), 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 December 28th.
Let the nominations begin!
Previous Dish of the Month Discussion for LA:
Another note: I am looking for a volunteer who is based in LA who would like to take over this nomination/voting/counting process for Dish of the Month. I'd like someone to take the reigns so this project can continue in LA, and I will be able to support whoever takes over. If you are interested, shoot me an email: davemphound AT gmail.com
