I LOOOOOVE Sichuan food and I've tried dozens of places in L.A. but Chengdu Taste is still my favorite by far. Now I want to start exploring Hunan food more and I'm wondering if there's a Hunan restaurant that is as good and respected as Chengdu Taste but for Hunan food. Thanks.

Where can I find raw peanuts in LA? Ideally, I’d like to find green peanuts (young peanuts, usually only available seasonally), but regular good raw peanuts would do. I’ve hit a couple farmers markets and some Asian grocery stores so far with no luck. Any ideas? I’m in the Burbank/Glendale area.

About a year ago I would drive by CSUN and see this little old lady in the afternoons selling some kind of street noodles out of a cart. I got excited and thought man I have to go try some street noodles. I think the cops kicked her out before I ever got a chance to try some. Anybody ever seen Asian street noodles sold on the street here in LA

So I tried just finding the dish in OC but it didn't work so I now figure that asking where the best one might be.

I've found it at Old Country Café (closed Monterey Park), believe there's another location. Nice Time Café in Monterey Park (Atlantic Times Square Plaz) apparently has it so I'm going to try it this weekend.

What about recommendations in general? Anyone have a favorite place to get this uncommon(rare?) dish?

Name of the dish is 白切小腸. Said as Bái qiē xiǎocháng and translates as "White Cut Small Intestine"

(If you have recommendations for ba wan that is great too.)

One my favorite examples is the Oki Dog -- invented by Okinawan native Sakai "Jimmy" Sueyoshi, he combined 2 hot dogs, chili, iceberg lettuce, pastrami (instead of the shoyu pork of Japan) and then wrapped it all in a tortilla. It is an absolute belly bomb but in terms of sheer culinary audaciousness, it's kind of amazing. AND I've never seen anything like it outside of L.A.

What other dishes scream "only in L.A." to you?
