LA’ s most iconic dishes: THE CLASSICS (part 2)

Here’s a promised second part of LA’s most iconic dishes! Enjoy and Bon Appétit!


Since 1919, Musso’s has served Hollywood’s finest cuisine. With unparalleled service and a familiar ambience that has become world renowned, Musso’s has always been “some place to eat.” For 100 years, Musso’s has been serving up classic, time-honored, freshly prepared recipes. From the original 1914 recipe for fettucine Alfredo to their mouthwatering ground beef sandwich, their classic menu hasn’t changed. Some of the 20th century’s greatest writers were Musso’s regulars, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner and Raymond Chandler. The menu features classics like flannel cake, grenadine of beef and welsh rarebit, and daily specials like the famous chicken pot pie, but the true Musso’s icon is the classic Martini, made with 2.5 ounces of gin and a half ounce of vermouth, stirred with ice and strained into a cocktail glass.

THE APPLE PAN is the result of the effort to do simple things exceedingly well. Into every detail of their food goes that essential ingredient which is composed of quality, fine flavor and painstaking preparation. There are only two burgers on the menu – the standard Steak Burger and the iconic Hickory Burger. Hickory Burger features a beef patty with a sweet-smoky hickory sauce, mayo, pickles and chilled iceberg lettuce for crunch. If you have a sweet tooth, you don’t want to miss their banana cream pie.

When you dine at their Italian deli and bakery in Santa Monica, California, you can expect the highest quality food made with the freshest ingredients, along with friendly, personal customer service. Since 1925, they have specialized in homemade, authentic Italian specialties, like their freshly made pasta, bread, and rolls. You can choose from all of their delicious menu items to cater your next big event. Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery is also a gourmet market, where you can find all types of domestic and imported groceries, including cheese, wine, and even housewares. But the real star is their sandwich the Godmother with Genoa salami, prosciutto, mortadella, coppacola, ham and provolone cheese on Italian bread. The sandwich can be topped with “the works” – mayo, mustard (yellow, honey or Dijon), onions, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, Italian dressing, and a mild or hot pepper salad.

Golden Deli first opened its doors as a Chinese, fast food buffet, hence the name Golden Deli. For a few years because the area was not as diverse as it is today, this small, reassuring restaurant- half the size that it is now- unable to turn a profit was about to close its doors. As a last effort, Golden Deli decided to introduce authentic homestyle Vietnamese food to the buffet. It turned out to be exactly what San Gabriel Valley needed as lines began to form. Fast forward to today, Golden Deli is still inspired to bring to you the same Original recipes. Pho, Vietnamese noodle noodle soup and fried egg rolls. What sets Golden Deli apart is that the pho is cooked low and slow in kettles (large industrial pots), until it develops its deep, robust flavor with a smooth and clean finish. You have to try their chả giò, or fried egg rolls. They are filled with pork, mushrooms, cellophane noodles and carrots, wrapped in rice paper and fried until they’re crisp and golden.
