Southern California in Food Photos

This is the 3rd part of the Food Photos series, covering my June trip to the United States. After covering San Francisco Food Photos, New York Food Photos, we're now onto Southern California.

I lived in Southern California for a good chunk of my life. But the photos shared only cover the items I enjoyed upon my June visit. The cities include Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Orange County and San Diego.

So without further ado...

FoodSherpas in NYC: New York Foodspotting Guide


VIRGIL'S BBQ:
From all my BBQ journeys throughout the USA, it always seems strange to me that my favorite Memphis style rib comes from NYC of all places. I'll put Virgils dry rub up against anyones. Memphis ribs served with mashed potatoes and gravy, corn bread and grilled vegetables. FoodSherpas.com review at http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/01/memphis-bbq-ribs-from-virgils.html

STAGE DELI
My #1 "Turkey Fix" when visiting the US, specifically NYC, is the Stage Deli in New York City. Hot open-faced turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, complete with cranberry sauce (provided once they realize I can't get cranberry sauce in Buenos Aires)...and a tall glass of cranberry juice. Happy Thanksgiving regardless of the time of the year. FoodSherpas.com review at http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/07/hot-pastrami-potato-knish-from-carnegie.html

VIRGIL'S BBQ:
The beacon of light that calls me to one of my BBQ homes.
FoodSherpas.com review at http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/01/memphis-bbq-ribs-from-virgils.html

THE ORIGINAL RAYS PIZZA (27 Prince St)
As NYC residents and travelers have noticed, there are tons of different pizza places with the name "Ray" included. But this is from the original: Ray's Pizza on 27 Prince St. A rite of passage for all pizza fans.

CERCLE ROUGE:
Escargot from Cercle Rouge in New York, NY

CARNEGIE DELI:
One of my favorites for pastrami: Carnegie Deli in New York. While the pastrami is in a tight race with Katz's for supremacy, Carnegie has perhaps the best knish: tasty mashed potatoes in a buttery shell. FoodSherpas.com review at http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/07/hot-pastrami-potato-knish-from-carnegie.html

KATZ'S DELI
Perhaps the best of the best: Katz's Deli hot patrami and a cream soda. The famous NYC landmark never disappoints and the old country Romanian Jewish recipe makes Katz's something special.

SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY:
Memphis rib app with skillet cooked corn bread from Southern Hospitality in New York, NY

JOHN'S PIZZERIA ON BLEEKER:
One of the best: John's Pizzeria on Bleeker, a tasty cheese & fennel sausage combo

SERENDIPITY 3:
Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity 3 in New York, NY. There's an argument to be made that this is the best dessert on the planet for peanut butter fans. Dislike PB, then go with the regular version.

STAGE DELI:
Hot open faced turkey sandwich with gravy fries and cranberry sauce from Stage Deli in New York, NY. More at  
http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/07/hot-pastrami-potato-knish-from-carnegie.html

VIRGIL'S BBQ:
Perhaps my favorite Memphis dry rub ribs w/ collard greens & mash potato at Virgil's BBQ in New York. Always worth a 2nd trip to Virgil's. 
FoodSherpas.com review at http://www.foodsherpas.com/2011/01/memphis-bbq-ribs-from-virgils.html


BLUE SMOKE:
From Blue Smoke in New York, 5 rib sampler (2 Memphis, 2 KC, 1 Texas), hushpuppies w/ jalapeño marmalade, pulled pork, sesame slaw, baked beans, and corn bread.

GRAN RANCHO JUBILEE:
A tasty Dominican soup from Gran Rancho Jubilee in Queens, Dominican joint near LGA airport.

GRAN RANCHO JUBILEE:
Fish stuffed with shrimp, clams, squid in tomato sauce w/ yellow rice from Gran Rancho Jubilee in Queens, Dominican joint near LGA airport.
