Default Places to eat in LA (California) surrounding area

Will be there for a week with family. Ontario Mills. June 14 weekend.

So what are the places we can visit and eat? Must be quality food.

I know about Swadesh and nearby restaurants.

Italian Halal dokan asey kono?

Much appreciated.

I was there couple of years back in Ontario Mills, Hotel besides the out-let mall. I was there overnight on the way to Sin City.

Don;t know much about the restaurants there but if you are open to Haram foods (), try In-And-Out Burger. It's a drive-through fast food but their Burgers were fresh and really good. You will never find them in East Coast.

If you have time, try to drive route-1 highway. Don't miss to go to San Deiago. If you are nice with Dr Z, he may lend his boat for a cruise. Plus if your kids, wife like shopping, take them to Santa Monica. That was a lively place.

Well the visit was great. The food inside disney is very expensive. $3.75 for a small pop.
+++
Mas Islamic chinese was great. They are closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I recommend everyone visiting LA go there at least once. We went to Noorani (Anahiem), Bismillah (Anahiem), Alauddin Sweets (Little Bangladesh - LA). All good food.

Bismillah takes too much time but the food is very tasty. Tried Muglai at Alauddin. The kacha golla was fresh.

All in all, it was a fun trip.

I am so sorry I couldn't give you time and meet up with you due to personal exigency. You came really close to our house. My mom only eats Halal and she loves Mas Islamic. I think now in Ramadan they are closed. Yeah Disneyland is cutthroat when it comes to prices. Have you been to Little Dhaka in Artesia?

Why is that Bangladeshi people look for Bangla food where ever they go they? Why not try the local cuisine? Don't you get enough polaow and beef curry at home? I ask because my parents are currently visiting Singapore and they're posting the crap out different curry places on FB like they've never seen that stuff before.

^ Well you can't really get halal local cuisine. Beside the food might all look same but it tastes very different. If I go to a new place I usually look for middle eastern/Afghani restaurants rather typical deshi/indian places.

What Dilscoop said.

Tell your patents to try Hainan Chicken Rice, Singapore Pepper or Chili crab, Soup Tulang (paya soup), Nasi Goreng, and Dim Sum. The last from Din Tai Fung which is a Michelin star rated dim sum place.

It is relevant in this thread because there is a Din Tai Fung in LA.

If you're in LA savor the diversity of the cuisine which is second to that of NYC. You must try all the famous fusion and non fusion Taco Trucks that LA is famous for.

Try a gourmet place one day. I recommend a Wolfgang Puck restaurant.

Try a real Baja style fish taco. Go to a Korean, Peruvian, or real Chinese place.

Why limit to the same culinary experience you have at home?

^Above post reminds me of the last season premier of TBBT where Penny and Sheldon try Asian Fusion.

Do not feel sorry!! We only had 6 days with 5 of them spending in Disney. Wanted to go to Little Dhaka but didn't have time. Did visit the Hollywood sign, Santa Monica area, Beverly Hills etc. We stayed at Ontario so it was quiet a commute everyday to Anahiem.

The best thing is the kids enjoyed and that is all that matters.

1. Subcontinent cuisine is not like McDonald's Big Mac/Cheese burger
2. Familiarity/Similarity yet styles and tastes are different.
3. Where we live, you don't get these stuff.
4. Fear of unknown.

Good points. I had forgotten the many years I lived in places far away from deshi cuisine and my culinary skills hadn't evolved enough to self-satisfy.

As for #4, it's not fear it's the conservative blood that runs through every auditor.

May be it is rubbing it off. (You know I am a convert, right? from IT)

Currently working on someone who is a workaholic, doing favors to the unfortunates. I mean he beats you by miles. 26 hours a day!!! Sometimes 6 days a week. Say wow!!

Taste may be different from home cooked food, which food isn't. But doesn't mean it's completely different, not something you've never tasted before. And how different can they be really? A polaow is a polaow is a polaow (yes I really don't like polaow, way too greasy. Give me plain rice please). It'd be like an Italian coming to NY to try some Papa J. Yes it's different than their pizza but it's still pizza.

And what is this obsession with elish (ielish?) fish! They act like it's crack or something. I hate myself for showing them IG.

Although I can see what you mean. For ex. I'll make an exception for In-n-Out burgers. Sure you might've had thousands of burgers before. But nothing like this. If you don't live in Cali, and you never had it, you gotta try it. And try their secret menu. You'll have to look that up.


@Z, they have a guide. Wonder what's the first thing they asked them when it was time for first dinner lol. Unless the guide is raciest and took them to all the Indian places.
