Just a few simple things (some of my personal favorites) which actually make this harder but would like to know for future outings. Would love to hear your versions....
Best bread: CAFE BEAUJOLAIS, Eagle Rock (well, really any place in Paris Hotel, Vegas but I guess we will stick to Cali)
Best sandwich (please describe in detail): Egg salad sandwich at EURO PANE, Pasadena
Best non-sushi Japanese: Sansui, Los Feliz- the unagi in their dinner set is melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
Best Sushi: Futami Sushi, Monrovia- will say it again, you haven't had albacore (white tuna, binchou maguro) until you've had this one, I could put money on it. Best kept secret in Los Angeles.
Best Burrito: King Taco- you can't beat a classic.
Best Pancakes: Sour Dough Pancakes at Campanile (I know, expensive but worth it)
Best Eggs Benedict (this one is one I am holding out for- have been so disappointed so many times at so many places!)
Feel free to add but I figured we've been over the 'best pizza' or 'best burger' thing before.
