10 Best LA Dishes for Homesick New Yorkers, or, Fancy LA takes on classic NY staples

LA does it’s own thing. It’s own fancier, slightly more expensive thing. There shouldn’t be a point to make any sort of comparison. They are right about the hot dogs, though. Nathan’s is probably the only holdout in the old NY hot dog scene.

Note: the Jewish deli section totally overlooks the Pico/Robertson - Miracle Mile stretch of wonderful Jewish delis that provide a much better deli experience than Jerry’s.

Beach & Burger Week, Day 5

No beach pic today, which is unfortunate. The beach was real nice, and it was probably the longest I’ve spent at the beach this week. Instead of going after my morning nap, I decided to nap right on the sand. The mild burn I received on my back indicates I passed out in the sun for a bit too long - having no sunscreen on didn’t help the situation. Also realized that I probably should have brought other people. Or a book. And a chair. Shoulda woulda coulda.

Managed to snag a pic of today’s burger though.

Homemade sliders. Courtesy of yours truly. I probably should have snapped pics of the process of making them, but I used a recipe I found from the Big Red Kitchen, so you can get the recipe from there. The burgers didn’t have as much flavor as White Castle sliders fresh off the grill, but these haven’t been fast food-ized either. And the rest of the fam didn’t want pickles. Nevertheless, the sliders went over pretty well. I’ll definitely be making these again.
