The Minty’s “I Want to Try in 2012” Restaurants List
I generally keep a mental list of restaurants I want to try but thought it’d be fun to post about these potential new favorites. And if you have suggestions, I’ll consider them! I am mostly concentrating on places that have been around forever but I have never been. I also want to explore more Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, South American and Latin restaurants. It is fortunate I live in a city where there is a high concentration of these cuisines.
I also am planning a Minty-approved guide to LA’s Chinatown. This project is going to take a bit of time but it’ll be delicious.
In no particular order…
Bazaar at the SLS- yes, I know…you don’t have to say it
Urasawa– LA’s best sushi?
Nozawa– the other LA’s best sushi?
Totoraku– Secret beef restaurant
Mastro’s – never been, is it really a great steakhouse?
CUT– should do a proper comparison, no?
n/naka– I have been waiting for a kaiseki restaurant forever!
La Cevicheria– blood clams
Guisados – tacos!
Lawry’s Prime Rib– as a native Angeleno, I’m slightly ashamed I’ve never been
Ciro’s– another LA must do
Park’s BBQ – heard this was the best KBBQ
SooWon Galbi – okay, heard THIS was the best KBBQ
Kobawoo House – pork
Cinnamon Vegetarian (veg Mexi food?)
Wako– for tonkatsu
List to be revised, surely!
