Things I Wonder if I’ll Ever Eat Again

Since I moved back from Los Angeles in 2003, I’ve had such food cravings.

You don’t think you miss things, but you DO! I only got to go back once, and nowhere near my favorite foods…. I often wonder if I’ll ever…

…get Canter’s matzo ball soup when I sick again…

matzoBallSoup Or their corned beef…

Corned Beef Best

Or if I’ll ever taste the yummy empanadas at Argentine Empanada…


Will I ever get my choice of “beef, chicken or shrimp” at Gardens of Taxco again?  Or be sung to by roving violinists?


Or be waited on by a server with 50 years of service at Musso and Franks (the ONLY place in the entire world that cooks a steak EXACTLY like I like it, with their red wine blue cheese dressing on a salad…AND I can sit in Mickey Rooney’s booth?


Or stop on my way home and sink my teeth into a Tommy Burger?


Or have a Westwood sammich at Nate N’ Al’s?


Oh Lord, if you can hear me, I need some money for Fed Ex shipping!!  I’ll eat everything cold and a day or two old, I promise!

But you have the memories...I don't have that many good eateries to relive. Maybe you should venture out and find new favorites.
The Apple Pan in L.A. has pretty darn good burgers, and, of course, apple pie à la mode! It's quite an experience eating there!
