Okay I’ll come clean: this post was promised to feature the incomparable Pig Candy at LOU (on Vine just above Melrose).
Unfortunately my schedule just didn’t permit me to get in there and order any in time to fit the time slot, so I’m giving you another awesome dish that I order like a mental patient: The Tuna Tuna Bowl at TOT in Little Tokyo.
“Tuna and Tuna” refers to the generous number of slices of delicious seared ahi which surround a lovely lump of spicy tuna in the center. All this atop more than enough romaine lettuce, with a neat kind of teryaki mayo dressing. Comes with miso soup and a pre-salad salad.
Here’s their whole lunch menu.
All this for $10.75!
TOT stands for TEISHOKUYA OF TOKYO. They’re open seven days a week, 11:30am to 11pm.
