The final update!

To all six of my loyal readers, I am leaving LA! I've got a job at UC Davis and will be starting my lab there. Restaurants in Davis are generally not so good, but I'll be close to Berkeley, SF and Napa, so the bon temps will continue to roll. I did a final update of the website to include the restaurants I didn't have time to write about while I was on the academic job market. Here they are (sorry no hot links, just look at the neighbourhood or cuisine page):

Alaska Seafood Restaurant - San Pedro Mexican mariscos kings
Chabuya - super Japanese ramen in Sawtelle
China Islamic - Islamic Chinese in Rosemead
Crown Cafe - Hunan in San Gabriel, a worthy successor to Shiang Garden
Danube - LA's first Bulgarian restaurant??? Not bad
El Hatuchay - Peruvian is tops here in North Hollywood
El Rocoto - Torrance Peruvian option
Father's Office - gourmet burger of legend in Santa Monica
Grand Casino - El cheapo empanadas at this Culver City bakery
Han Bat - K'town spot for your beef soup/sul lung tang fix
Komatsu - tempura bar in South Bay/Torrance
Krua Thai - LA's finest Thai noodle shop! North Hollywood
Las Quenas - excellent Peruvian in North Hollywood
Natraliart - Jamaican fare in Crenshaw, the best
Olive Branch - Persian in La Crescenta
Spago - yes, I did go! Beverly Hills temple of California cuisine
Tay Ho - Vietnamese banh cuon specialist in Little Saigon

There will be a final announcement on the main blog, but if all goes well I may have someone to continue the restaurant reviews.

Happy eating,

Simon aka Low End Theory

Congratulations on your escape from LA-LA land. I hope you'll keep blazing the cheap eats trail in NorCal that you did in years past. Whatever you are studying, try and squeeze in Prof. Grivetti's Nutritional Anthropology (NUTRITION 120A)course if it's still offered!

I just came across this blog and thought it was funny that you're moving to Davis from LA when I just moved to LA from Davis. In case you haven't been pointed in the direction of it yet is really helpful. Also, my favorite restaurant is in West Davis. The hongshao shizitou (braised lion head meatballs) are addictive.

Rather cool place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to this matter. BTW, try to add some images :).
