Here are some San Fernando Valley restaurants, just over the hill and northwest of L.A. I'll post a few as time allows, and more details and updates may follow. So far I haven't found a Chinese, Indian, or especially Mexican restaurant that compares to those in the South Bay. But, the search continues. I tend to look for buffets and combo specials, especially at Chinese and Indian restaurants, where the price of an a la carte meal can get quite expensive. Always call first, and check for the newest details like days, hours, prices, parking, cards, to-go, delivery, catering, handicapped access, FAX numbers, alcohol, senior and kid discounts, coupons, etc. Please put your suggestions and comments on my new message board - no email please.

BBQ, Southern style
How to eat a buffet. I'll need to revise this, but here are some ideas. Try Buffet Hints.
How hot/spicy should it be? For example, Filipino food, along with Indian and perhaps Mexican food, is ment to be respiced (and made hotter) by the eater at the table. Order the food mild, if you wish, and add hot sauce and stuff as you like. In a French or Italian restaurant, for example, the chef might not appreciate this.
Reader's Choice Best of Report
8/13/02 - Reader's Choice. The Daily News plans a 'reader's choice best of' report from their readers in the Friday, 8/30/02 edition. These usually include restaurants, but the 2001 report at www.dailynews.com/socal/ads/live/readerschoicedn/f-edition.htm is a total mess, so who knows? PS - that page locked me up.
8/10/02 - "Prologue: A brief History of Travel," a shortish, 17-page section relates historical tidbits from travel (back to about 3000 B.C.), hospitality/lodging (back to about 500 B.C.), and restaurants (back to about the 1600s). The book is titled "An Introduction to Hospitality Today" by Angelo and Vladimir, a textbook from the Educational Institute of the American Hotel & Hotel Association, © 1998. This book could be hard to locate, but there may be others with this type of info.
