Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231

If you’re looking for this place at night, look hard, because that sign doesn’t light up.  Or if it does, it wasn’t lit up tonight. When you see this place it just strikes you how plain it is.  No ornate decorations or anything.  It’s just a simple, no nonsense, steakhouse, and that’s good enough for… Continue reading Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231

China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Probably my last five times eating Chinese food it’s been at the Empress of China.  I love that place and have been kind of stuck on it.  I’ve always heard good things about China Doll.  I tried it once so long ago I couldn’t remember if I liked it or not, so I figured I’d… Continue reading China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206

I was in the mood for some home cooking today and I had heard good things about this place.  I looked up their menu online and it showed the only two entrées they had were meatloaf and fried chicken.  That sounded good to me, so we headed on in! When we got there we found… Continue reading Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206

Fire Food & Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #184

I pass by this place several times a week and tonight I decided to pop in for dinner.  Nice looking place.  No lack of televisions if you want to catch your favorite sporting event.  Numerous dining rooms.  One was being used for a private party. Not a very long menu but a decent variety.  I… Continue reading Fire Food & Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #184

Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

  My favorite Mexican Restaurant on the Westbank is El Paso (Report #9).   I passed this place a thousand times and thought about trying it out, and tonight I finally did. Like any other Mexican place they start you out with chips and salsa.  The chips were very crisp and fresh, and the salsa… Continue reading La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

  I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems most sushi places are pretty much the same.  Same menu, same preparation, etc.  I’m always looking for something that makes one stand out from the others.  Tonight I figured I’d give Fuji Hana a try. Big, pretty place.  If you like hibachi tables there’s… Continue reading Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151
