ouch  :(

 

 

 

what you think of annex compared to normal tsujita lunch? annex is good but not quite as good imo

 

their bowls are different, annex is supposed to be like ramen jiro. i like both equally but annex is more accessible because ramen is all-day there.

meow meow is way too decadent but very good

the rose milk green tea at factory tea bar would be amazing if they cut some of the sugar.  i might ask for reduced sugar next time

Haven't been out in about 16 months, moving back out in a few weeks. Anything interesting/new going on?

Moving to LA next month and never been before. Going out next week for a few days to get a feel for the area. Living in Beverly Hills.

What shouldn't I miss?

Where in Beverly Hills are you moving? I'd say check out downtown around the new Ace Hotel, Melrose, W. 3rd, and get going to all the touristy places out of the way. I figure though that anything you miss in the few days you are visiting can be seen again when you come back permanently.

Reeves Dr down near Olympic. It's like half a mile south of Rodeo Dr.

Ace Hotel sounds awesome. I work in hotels so I definitely wanted to check out some of the big ones in the area since I don't have a job yet (gotta live off my sugar mama for a bit since she got the job that we're moving for). Are talking about a downtown area of Beverly Hills or just downtown LA? Like I said, never been before so super ignorant.

Downtown Los Angeles. In recent years, DTLA has really sprung up. Acne, for example, just opened up their biggest store ever down there.

On the subject of DTLA, anyone live in the central downtown area? In a similar boat as brooks, moving down to LA in the near future for my girl's job. Her job is smack in the middle of downtown (near The Standard), and just wondering what living in that area is like. We've seen what looks like some pretty cool lofts for way cheaper then the east coast but not sure if it's too good to be true or what

Having done some looking in NYC and the Bay Area prior to her getting this job, I was surprised by how reasonable a lot of apartments were priced. Comparable to what we paid in Atlanta, even.

I don't live downtown, but I'm incredibly familiar with it. Basically every loft downtown has been built in the past ten years, and almost all of them are pretty good quality. I'd stay away from anything that sounds like a TMNT (Orcini, Michelangelo) or starts with SB (which stands for Shy Barry, a developer notorious for cheaping out on his projects).  Beyond downtown, Silverlake and Echo Park are also cheaper, cool, and close options, though you'd probably need a car. Koreatown is a little grungier, but is probably even cheaper, has some of the best food in the city, and you wouldn't need a car. If you have any more specific questions, feel free to PM me.

Anyone know any stores that carry Undercover/Undercoverism? I think Opening Ceremony does, but anyone besides them?

Posted over in the SF thread, but also wanted to ask here as well.

My friend and I are flying into LA at the end of August.  We're staying there for a couple days, then driving up to SF for a few days and then back to LA.

I haven't been to LA in years, so I don't really know what all there is out there.

We just want to make the most of a short trip and get out of Austin for awhile, so we're open to all suggestions.

We're both into beer, coffee, food and denim if that helps at all. Suggestions would be much appreciated!

Downtown, Little Tokyo, and Arts District have probably changed drastically from the last time you were in LA, so I'd say stick around that area. Lots of all that stuff you're looking for (iono about your denimbro stuff, tho)

So I think the way we have it set up now we're really only gonna have a day or two in LA.

What would you say your top spots are?  Food / drink wise.

Definitely going to Self Edge too.

Are we only talking about downtown here? If so, I'd say check out Wurstkuche, Wexler's Deli at the Grand Central Market, Guerrilla Taco, and if you wanna spend a little more, Alma, Bestia, Fifty Seven, or Faith and Flower.

So been here a few months and finally got my ramen place down, now ready to start finding my Korean BBQ place. Anyone wanna share any favorites to start with?

For ramen I settled on Daikokuya. Usually I go to the one in West LA since it's closest to my house, but I work downtown so been meaning to check that one out too.

Thanks for the BBQ recs, will hit them up soon.
