The Food section in this week’s Weekly is covering Silver Lake so I felt I needed to respond, since it’s my hood and all. Frighteningly I haven’t been to all the places they talk about but there’s some missing info on some of the reviews that I thought I needed to ammend.
Alegria – This place was great until they redid their menu and took off every single vegan option they had, which would have been fine except they have a totally retarded “we don’t customize food” rule which means if you are allergic to dairy products and you ask them to “hold the cheese” they tell you to suck it. Which is insane because with me, I want to pay the same thing for less food and they won’t go for it. So forget them, haven’t been there in over a year.
Rambutan Thai – They got this right, it rocks, but I really think they could have stuffed the world “hip” in the review one more time.
Say Cheese – Lot parking? HA! By “lot parking” they mean the same lot as Trader Joes which anyone who has ever driven down Hyperion knows is completely useless and over packed 24 hours a day. It’s a shame but it makes shopping in any of those stores completely impossible. So no, I’ve ever been there.
They also totally over looked Lelah Thai, Mae Ploy and Pho King – three eateries that I highly recommend in the greater Silver Lake area.
