CC Foodie – Creme de la Crepe

Sometime good things come in plain brown envelopes. Such is the case with the brown buckwheat crepes that are featured at Creme de la Crepe, filled with things like chicken and mushrooms, smoked salmon, or goat cheese and walnuts. In addition to delicious food, the restaurant has some unexpected bonuses. You might not think that Westfield would be a spot for a locally owned eatery( it's a [...]

CC Foodie – Ramen Yamadaya

It's cold, and there's nothing more appealing to the body and the soul than hot soup. Ramen Yamadaya can do that for you. The star of the menu is the ramen with pork broth, long simmered and deeply flavored. The Tonkatsu Kotteri is the most popular menu item, and the spiciness can be dialed up or down as you like. Garlic lover that I am, it's nice that the fresh crushed garlic on the side can [...]

There is a lot of thought being give to the simple idea of a loaf of bread recently, and nowhere is that thought more intense than at Lodge Bread. Bringing life to a nondescript slice of Washington Boulevard, this is a bakery with a belief system. Alex Phaneuf  and Or Amsalam both started out as chefs, but got drawn to baking as means of creativity in the kitchen that reflected both simplicity [...]

Our small patch of Los Angeles County called Culver City is not only home to, but known for upscale ethnic eateries from Argentinian to Brazilian, Cuban, Danish, Ethiopian, French, Generic chains, Hawaiian, Indian, Japanese and - phew, I got to K - a new Korean restaurant.

CC Foodie – Holy Cow Celebrates 1st Year

People often confuse grilling with barbeque. They are, in fact, opposite ends of the spectrum. Grilling is about cooking meat very quickly at a very high temperatures over an open fire. Barbeque takes time. Good barbeque takes lots of time. Rob Serritella, Founder of Holy Cow and BBQ Aficionado noted "We take about 16 hours with the brisket." Taste it, and you will appreciate every minute. It's [...]
