Food advice for those in an ethnically diverse city... [Jun. 5th, 2002|06:05 pm]

Occasionally, you will find yourself in or at a restaurant that offers a diverse choice of menu items from around the globe. Here's my advice:

Look at the person fixing your food. Try your best to get food that matches his ethnicity. Trust me when I say, the chicken burrito from the Chinese man will taste wrong...When in doubt, pick the American food (hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.). It's very hard to screw those up...

And never, no matter how hungry you are, get Mirza Pizza. You'll regret it. The mixture of Americanized Italian and Middle Eastern does not make a good combination.

This may sound racist, or something, but I really don't intend it that way. These are just things I've learned from experience living in L.A.

If David Lynch were a restaurant, that would have been it.

Pretty sure Mirza Pizza was gone by the time my brother and his wife moved into that neighborhood.


Along those lines, however, we've got a Panda Buffet in the mall's parking lot now. And they too offer pizza, but it's actually good. Most of their food is. But there are a few questionable items. The cheese wantons should best be avoided. You'll have to make your own mind up on the potato skins, though - between the potato and the cheese, they've snuck in something akin to eggroll filling. This flies in the face of all known logic. You've never eaten anything like it.
