Indulge me for a minute (pun intended).
If you knew you were leaving LA forever (e.g., you were for some reason getting deported), where would you have your last 3 meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner?
BREAKFAST: Pie n' Burger (in Pasadena) for the Bacon and Sausage omelette and the cinnamon roll, and then beg the waitress for their hand-mixed soda.
LUNCH: Sea Harbour (in Rosemead) for some taro buns, dumplings and sesame balls, and then beg the waiter to pluck a catfish from the tank and steam it for me ... hey, it's my last meal in LA!
DINNER: Melisse (in Santa Monica) where I'll dine on the Rotisserie Chicken, alone ... so that when I leave LA I can tell people I paid over $40 for chicken!
Anyone else care to share?
