Tatang Li-em-po (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

A North Hollywood strip mall best known for Vallarta Supermarkets is now home to one of the Valley’s best Filipino restaurants: Tatang. Chef JR Martin and wife Chiho honor their cultural heritage in modern ways while tipping their caps to the past. The name Tatang translates from Tagalog to English as father. In this case, the father is JR’s late grandfather, dad to 16 children, including Martin’s mom, the family’s eldest child. From Tatang’s grill, I’d recommend ordering Li-em-po ($6.95). Thin slabs of heritage pork belly are marinated in tart calamansi juice, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic, and some water to thin out the sodium. Bellies are grilled until charred bits form, sliced into this strips that take dips in spicy vinegar, and served with cooling tomatoes. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from the previous week.

Hoi An: Special Meal at Substantial Saigon Restaurant

by Joshua Lurie @ Ho Chi Minh City – Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Décor, presentation and flavor all converged to make this a special meal. I was led upstairs to a lovely room with dark, carved wood, substantial chairs and tables and instruments mounted on the walls. A three-piece band played traditional Vietnamese music, on instruments unlike any I’ve seen or heard in the Western world. The restaurant is named after a province in central Vietnam with a lot of factories. The menu was long and varied. I looked to my English-speaking waiter for guidance. At the top restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, the staff speaks solid English. At the top restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, the prices are also listed in U.S. dollars, not Dong, which says a lot about the clientele at Hoi An and expensive restaurants in the former South Vietnamese capitol. I saw a lot of foreigners. A lot of Japanese tourists. The management at Hoi An and sister restaurant Mandarin advertises in Japanese magazines. They brought a dish of kimchi, spicier, crisper and better than any version I’ve ever eaten at any Korean restaurant. There was also a plate of roasted peanuts. I started with “Hoi An” style spring rolls ($5.90). These were incredibly special: six...

Fulidhoo dive – Diving in the Maldives.

Aaah, Maldives, they seem to be the perfect postcard picture everyone dreams about! But is there anything to do there, besides lying on the beach and watching coconuts fall down on pristine white sand? Diving in the Maldives I admit, I thought we would be bored here since we like to be active and explore new places. Fortunately, I was wrong. 🙂 Maldives are much more than staying in a private resort doing nothing. And most of all, they are affordable! The local islands are amazing, people friendly...

Pho 2000: Slurping Soup Like a President in Ho Chi Minh City

by Joshua Lurie @ Ho Chi Minh City – Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Pho 2000, a Ben Tranh adjacent pho shop, is famous for one thing, serving Bill Clinton beef noodle soup on his visit to Ho Chi Minh City in November, 2000. Clinton’s photos were everywhere in this open air, corner restaurant. Thanks to Clinton’s association, a small bowl of rice noodle soup cost almost twice as much as any other pho shop I ate at in Ho Chi Minh City (18000 Dong for a small bowl, 23000 for a large bowl). Still, 18000 Dong is only about $1.10 American, and my bowl of Pho Ga, rice noodle soup with chicken, was the finest I ate in Vietnam. The soup was simple: rice noodles mixed with onions, scallions, and slices of white meat chicken, but the ingredients were great and the broth was flavorful. To drink, I ordered a sapodilla shake (10000 Dong). I have no idea why a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City was serving a shake made with an orange fruit native to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, but it was sweet and refreshing, so I’m not complaining.

Mandarine: Experiencing Déjà Vu at Grand Saigon Restaurant

by Joshua Lurie @ Ho Chi Minh City – Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

The food was excellent at Mandarine. One problem; the experience was quite similar to my dinner at Hoi An two nights before. Mandarine and Hoi An have the same owner. Even the Mandarine manager admitted there wasn’t much difference between the two restaurants. Which is not to say it wasn’t worth eating at Mandarine. It was. Mandarine just had a déjà vu quality. Mandarine and Hoi An both have intricate dark wood decor. Where Hoi An has two levels, Mandarine has three. Both restaurants have three-piece bands; Mandarine’s is more up-tempo. Only Mandarine had this row of Vietnamese cymbals. There were even the same complimentary dishes of roasted peanuts and kimchi; Mandarine’s version wasn’t as crisp. I began my meal with an excellent mango juice ($2.50), fresh squeezed and sporting an orchid. For my appetizer, I ordered Cha Gio Bong Bi (pumpkin flower spring rolls, $7). It was an impressive presentation: six feather-light, fried pumpkin flowers stuffed with ground pork and shrimp, with flowers carved from red peppers and carrots, and a small pumpkin on top of shredded banana flowers. Tempura chefs could learn about delicate frying from the Mandarine masters. For my entrée, I ordered Cua Hop Bia (crab...

Zen temple III. Temple food and meditation.

by katkoc @ We Just Travel

The third part of our zen temple experience is posted almost exactly 2 years after the first two. We visited Zen temple in June of 2015 and now in July 2017. This is not your everyday temple stay. Some things were much easier (like complicated ritual of eating) and some were much more difficult (like meditation). We were just in a different state of mind. If you’re new here: Fumonken is a zen temple in Kyoto, very close to the golden Kinkakuji temple. It’s not the Western type...

Transplants Brewing Turns 2, Ceremony + Anna’s Cider

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

I finally made a second visit north to Palmdale to join in festivities for the Transplants Brewing second anniversary bash. I was surprised at the variety of beers on offer (32 all told) as well as their growth in the brewing. I sampled eight beers from the list and was impressed by all save one that was probably just too green (The Bible Salesman). I really liked the Mecha Pronghorn that was one of many beers aged in Koval barrels. The Imperial Stout had loads of chocolate taste to it and was very smooth. I also tasted my first pastry stout with a great name of Cut & Pastry. It certainly did have a doughy sort of taste to it and though not my favorite was certainly well executed. IPA-wise, I tasted CatBirD which was brewed with Hop Hash and Hemp CBD; it tasted very nice with a near NE haziness to it. Fringe Element was a bit strong for an “IPA for Everybody” but I liked the taste of it and it paled to the two over 10% Triple IPAs on offer. Going back to the dark side, the Ultra Double Filbert was probably my second favorite after Mecha....

Ben Thanh Market: Legendary Ho Chi Minh City Swap Meet

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

In the back of Ben Thanh Market, a legendary Ho Chi Minh City swap meet, you’ll find food stalls featuring a wide variety of South Vietnamese specialties. Since so many of the foods were new to me, I ignored the pleading of hawkers and made a full tour of the offerings before landing a direct hit: Tri Tam Banh Vot Nong. Banh Vot Nong are pan-fried rice cakes, cut in half, filled with ground pork and wood-ear mushrooms and slathered with a pink sauce. It was the kind of thing you’d find under a dollop of spicy tuna at almost any sushi bar in Los Angeles, only crispier, chewier, better tasting, and a whole lot cheaper (3 for 3000 Dong, about 15 cents U.S.). All three dishes I ordered from O Be were disappointing. The salad roll filled with lettuce, onions and BBQ pork (2500 Dong) was fine until I dipped it in an oily peanut sauce. A little pork pattie topped with an orange-red chili sauce (1000 Dong) was cold and mushy. There was also a glutinous rice pancake with shell-on shrimp, not good. At the Nuoc Mia booth, I ordered my sugar cane juice “Khong Da,” without ice....

2018 Beer Predictions, Nice Chucks + January Plan

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

It is time to gaze into the crystal ball. Don’t shake it or the yeast will start swirling amidst the hazy IPA inside. Here is what I think could happen in the world of independent beer in 2018. 1. Each year it seems that breweries get the idea that they should sell to the large Los Angeles beer market. We reap the benefit for a few months, but then the distribution flags and poof!; the brewery retreats. I expect this to happen again, but with more breweries flowing out than coming in for the first time. 2. 22-ounce bombers will fade quicker this year as more 16-ounce cans and 32-ounce crowlers take over. We are already seeing the re-emergence of the six-pack as well. 3. Taproom-only releases will start to be seen on beer shop shelves and more kegs will be spotted as well. Beer has to be made to a certain scale and if the beer sits at a brewery too long, it will eventually make its way elsewhere. 4. There will be at least four big buyouts / purchases as consolidation starts to take hold but SABInBev and their High End portfolio might be silent this year. 5.THE...

Temple Club: High End but Approachable in Ho Chi Minh City

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

In a city of excellent high-end restaurants, I had my best meal at Temple Club. On the second floor of a yellow building, above the HCMC branch of legendary Ha Noi ice creamery, Fanny’s, was this beautiful space: dark woods, gray-blue lanterns, colonial-style fans and exposed brick walls. Dapper waiters dressed in white shirts and black vests. Service was stellar. And the food was IN-credible. I drank fresh squeezed lime juice (25000 Dong), pulpy and refreshing. I began with a half-portion of Tong Hop Kha Vi, the Temple Club Platter (50000 Dong, $3). The platter held two each of the Cha Gio (traditional home-made spring rolls, Goi Cuon (fresh shrimp and pork salad rolls), Cuon Diep (Hue salad rolls wrapped in mustard leaves) and Bo La Lot (charcoal grilled beef in lot leaves). The dish was only a quarter the cost of the roll platter I ate the night before at the downright regal Nam Phan, and three of the four dishes were clearly better at Temple Club. The spring rolls were a draw. Temple Club’s were crisp outside, with a seriously thin rice paper wrapper, a juicy pork filling accented with wood-ears and scallions. The goi cuon were remarkably...

Someone “liberated” a “tarantula” in a “common space” in “Hermosa” while a “Dojo” searches for Dankness masters, but it all flows back to the fact that it is “Chinatown.” Yes, that was a bit of tortured prose, but references some new breweries that are planning on opening in 2018. A partial list of interest includes the following breweries. Tarantula Hill Brewing Company will be the first brewery in Thousand Oaks thanks to a 2016 change in zoning regulations. Named after the tallest point in Thousand Oaks, this possible July opener will also serve Neapolitan pizza and homemade ice cream. Common Space Brewery will be joining Hawthorne’s suddenly hot scene this fall, following L.A. Ale Works to the land of SpaceX. Liberation Brewing Company adds to the growing list of Long Beach breweries when it lands in the city’s Bixby Knolls area. The brewery is fronted by Dan Regan, former member of renowned local ska band, Reel Big Fish. Hermosa Brewing Company eschews the beach moniker and will also be serving up food alongside beer.

L.A. Beer & Food Festival, Kool Kief + The Rake

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

The Los Angeles beer festival calendar starts with a bang as the second annual L.A. Beer & Food Festival returns to Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake on Saturday, January 27, 2018. This was a fun and more intimate festival than others with beer and food booths snaking through rooms and outdoors. This year the L.A. County Brewers Guild event features 50 of L.A.’s independently-owned craft brewers pouring beers that you can then pair with food. It is a wonderful way to quickly and easily see and test how beers taste before, mid-bite, and after. On the beer side of the equation, I am looking forward to two groups of breweries. One category involves breweries that I haven’t had a beer from yet, and the other features breweries in which I need to get re-acquainted. In the former category are Zymurgy Brew Works and Pocock Brewing and in the latter are Mt. Lowe Brewing and Five Threads Brewing. Since there are so many breweries to choose from, you had better come with at least a bit of a game plan. You can drink by style or by geography or just pick the beers that have the best hop-related puns. This...

Kitchenette Pork Posole Verde (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Bishop-born brothers Michael Kobayashi and chef Chris Kobayashi opened Artisan in Paso Robles, setting the bar for seasonal comfort food in the then-sleepy Central Coast town. In the past decade-plus, the area’s shown a far deeper culinary commitment level. Competition has grown, but Artisan continues to thrive. The brothers moved Artisan to Paso’s main square in 2013 and extended south in 2015, opening a cafe-bakery called Kitchenette in neighboring Templeton. Kitchenette limits their menu to breakfast and lunch. From 8 a.m. to noon, the Kobayashi brothers serve great versions of American classics like ricotta pancakes and corned beef hash, plus several Mexican dishes. I enjoyed their play on pork posole verde, a hearty Mexican hominy stew. They favor a thicker broth with a moderate amount of spice and tang. They pile on juicy seared pork chunks, quarter-sized cuts of linguica, creamy avocado, crunchy cabbage, savory crumbled feta, punchy jalapeño, and clipped chives. A crispy fried soft-boiled egg is sliced in half and sports gooey a yolk that draws the eye. Not all ingredients are Mexican, but it’s clear the Kobayashi brothers are familiar with the dish, and represent it well. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from...

Trust Way Burger (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Weekend brunch is a way of life in laid-back San Diego. After training for triathlons, going for their morning jog, or catching a few waves, people flood open-air restaurants to refuel (and then some). I’m not even training for anything, but was happy to carbo- and protein-load at TRUST Restaurant in an industrial, mixed-use Hillcrest building. Brad Wise runs TRUST and nearby Hundred Proof. His original restaurant features a glass and steel patio with red chairs; the dining room touts an open kitchen and diagram of pork parts, one of which tops a devastating “Trust Way” burger. Wood Grilled Burger ($14) is a beast at its core, with a juicy, well-seared patty piled with Asiago cheese, savory bacon-tomato jam, tangy pickled onions, and arugula on a soft poppy seed bun that soaks up the beef’s juices. Sure, each burger comes with skin-on French fries, but you should also bolster your burger by ordering Trust Way ($3). That means with house-cured, braised bacon and a sunny side egg that washes over the burger’s substantial, but balanced ingredients. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from the previous week.

Caramel Donut Man: Haunting Ho Chi Minh City, Sweetly

by Joshua Lurie @ Ho Chi Minh City – Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

I had been walking the streets of Ho Chi Minh City for hours when a man rounded the corner and walked toward me carrying a huge platter. He offered me donuts and pastries slathered with caramel and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I bought a round pastry from him for 5000 Dong (about 30 cents American). He pulled a plastic baggie from his little blue pail and handed me my baked good. Then he was gone. The pastry was tremendous, oily, crispy, topped with a thick layer of sweet caramel, and filled with a surprise layer of egg yolk. I spent a good chunk of my final two days in Vietnam in District 1, but I never saw the caramel donut man again.

Ironsmith Coffee Roasters Turmeric Ginger Latte (Drink of the Week)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

I’ve recently been visiting Ironsmith Coffee Roasters in Encinitas on Sundays to enjoy delectable baked goods from Crystal White and Wayfarer Bread, but the coffee bar is worth visiting in its own right. Raul Macias and Matt Delarosa launched Ironsmith to start 2015 and they’ve managed to accomplish a lot in a small space on Coast Highway. The art-lined cafe with black steel and light wood color scheme roasts coffee beans in-house and brews using a variety of methods. They take the process seriously and consider artistry when presenting drinks, even coffee-free drinks. Turmeric Ginger Latte ($5) is a recent triumph featuring raw spices, honey, and a choice of milk. Each latte is available either hot or over ice. Order the drink hot and each latte is steamed with a little bit of coconut oil to help the flavors bind together. The kicker is a fresh-cracked black pepper shower that adds contrast and a bit more spice.

Wide Eyes Open Palms The Schmancy (Drink of the Week)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Seasonal comfort food and specialty coffee has become much more prominent pairing in L.A. County since SQIRL and G&B Coffee co-habitated in 2012. Chef Kat McIver and partner/barista Angie Evans execute both facets beautifully in Long Beach at Wide Eyes Open Palms, which started at the Sunday Alamitos Bay Farmers Market and now exists near 4th Street’s Retro Row. The concept is clearly derivative of SQIRL, but has developed a distinctive charm. Brunch is the star at this tiny, but airy space that includes twin wood counters, art-lined white walls, and two sidewalk tables. WEOP celebrates multiple coffee roasters, rotating between beans from West Coast companies like Four Barrel from San Francisco, Heart from Portland, and during my visit, Augie’s Coffee from Redlands. Their two-group La Marzocco espresso machine helps fuel classics, plus specialty drinks like peppermint mocha and ginger cinnamon latte. The Schmancy ($5.50) is a cold brew mocktail inspired by the Old Fashioned, a cocktail that typically includes either Bourbon or Rye whiskey, a sugar cube, Angostura bitters, one Luxardo cherry, and often an orange peel garnish. In this case, Evans favors chocolatey, fruity coffees from countries like Ethiopia and Guatemala. [This version featured Guatemalan coffee from Augie’s.]...

Somewhere in Japanese Alps When I think of Japan, I probably think of two things (that are actually opposites): crazy, vibrant big cities like Tokyo; and small villages with old houses, smelling of tatami mats, zen garden outside and matcha tea. No? 🙂 So, when in fact the big cities are quite easy to find (and all the fun things you can do – like video games, karaoke rooms and shopping), the small villages are in fact somehow … hidden 🙂   We visited some villages in Japan...
