    Randy's Donuts

    I remember the first time I saw Randy's Donuts - I got this huge smile on my face. Randy's Donuts is opening a second location in Century City Mall this summer, and the original location has been open since 1953, qualifying them for our "Oldest Restaurants in the Los Angeles Area" list.
  2. I may have the opportunity to write an collection of places not to be missed in Philly. With the wealth of the posters in this forum, I am asking for a little help. Please chime in where I should visit, and places that are not to be missed. The spots can range from where to eat, where to dine, where the best public bathroom is , think unusual, think funky, think like a local. Please and thank you for all your suggestions. Once I am chosen to write this book, I will personally throw a party and invite everyone to celebrate my very first publication. This is our opportunity to go public. It is with the support of everyone that I have met along the way, including a few of you in this forum, that will encourage me to crush this challenge. I plan on KILLIN' It. 1st time, kat
  3. FINALLY! I was in Arrowine just now buying some cheese. The A-Team was working, with the entire store buzzing due to an expiring Groupon. At the register, I noticed some baguettes in a paper wrapper that looked unfamiliar to me - I grabbed one. A few moments later, while Perry (our own Beerboy_999) was ringing me up, he turned to a young woman putting baguettes into the baskets, and said, "Do you two know each other?" We both politely shook our heads, no. "Well, you should," he said. He introduced me to Carolina Garcia, owner of LeoNora Bakery which I didn't even know existed until about 45 minutes ago. We talked for a few seconds - "I'm not quite sure if this is a baguette or a ficelle," I said. Her friendly smile belied an underlying confidence that cannot be faked. "Yeah, they're a little smaller than what they had before," she replied. Afterwards, I went and picked up my Muffuletta from The Italian Store, then drove home, threw the bags on the counter, and took out the baguette. I broke it at about the one-third point, and immediately put it to my nose. My instant impression was, Saltine cracker. I put it down, then took one more whiff, and got the unmistakable scent of long-rising dough. I didn't need to taste it; visually and texturally, I could see that this bread was what I've been searching for. Here it was: finally, a good, locally produced baguette. The consistency of the bread was outstanding but not flawless - the crust was perfect; the mie could have used about 10% (but no more than 10%) less doughiness - today is a rainy day with 100% humidity, and I'm pretty sure that matters. Perfection or not, this baguette is all I need to know that LeoNora Bakery is a noteworthy artisan baker, right in the heart of Arlington. To state the obvious: get them now, before they become too popular, because the quality isn't going to get any better than this. Cheers, Rocks

  5. Since this past weekend was a super special weekend for me (I feel blessed Easter happened around the same time), I decided to treat myself, visit New York and explore bake shops and coffee shops (separate thread soon). For bakeries, here are my observations: Chelsea Empire Cake. I love the clean lines of the font of the storefront and interior design. I also like how they have so many different types of cake and baked goods to choose from. I only purchased one slice of their chocolate cake to sample. The cake traveled well from NY to DC, since I didn't eat it until the next day, and I loved the chocolatey goodness without it being overly sweet. The only slight downfall is that it was a teeny bit on the dry side, but I would still go back to buy their cakes and try their wares. Fat Witch. This is inside the famous Chelsea Market. I bought two mini brownies ($1.75 a piece) and one "Wicked" brownie (with green sprinkle sugar, after the musical - around $3). I haven't had these yet, but the locals I asked really love this place and I really liked the sample I tasted. The shop is really small, but I love whoever designed their logo. East Village Milk Bar. The East Village location is right around the corner from the noodle bar and right across the street from Ssam. One can walk right past it without you knowing it's there. The main design downfall is that it's tiny and no public washroom to use. The main flavor downfall is what others have posted in this forum: it is simply too sweet. I tried the chocolate cake truffles where the first ingredient listed is sugar. That should have clued me in, but nonetheless, I wanted to see what the fuss was about. And I was fussy, but of course, in a bad way. I also didn't like the cornflake chocolate chip cookie for two reasons: 1. It was too sweet as well, and 2. It was too gimicky. Sweet snacks should be simple, no fuss and delish. This place strays from all three in my book. Hell's Kitchen (Theatre District border) Donna Bell's Bake Shop. I stopped here after seeing Avenue Q at the New World Stages. The store is about 3/4 kitchen and 1/4 shop, but boy, what a shop! I wish I purchased more than the one piece of the pecan bar here--it has all the goodness that a good baker/eater looks for in a bar: proper shortbread (okay, it may have been a little too buttery), not too terribly sweet, but just gooey enough (a good use of honey in this case) with a healthy helping of pecans atop. I scarfed it down when I got back to DC. It also traveled well. I definitely can't wait to explore places others have posted in the "Mother Thread" as well.
