Foodie Club

I organize a Foodie Club with my friend Erick (known as EP). Roughly monthly we do particularly extravagant dinners. These not only have obscenely good (and lengthy) meal services, but also particularly lavish wine (from my cellar).

You can always find the main FOOD INDEX on the right side bar (the knife and fork icon), and this foodie index is below under Top Posts as “Foodie Dinners.” You can also see inline all the Foodie Club posts by clicking here.

  7. [...] The Food Club has been talking about taking a trip to Go’s Mart for months, but we finally got around to organizing it. For those of you who don’t know, Go’s Mart is a tiny strip mall joint in Canoga Park with some of the best sushi in the entire LA area. Go has a unique take on the art, as you will see below. My partner in crime, Erick, has been coming here for over ten years and he called Go (the owner/chef) up and arranged for a “special” omakase for us. For scheduling reasons we decided on a very long Saturday lunch. So I went down tot he cellar and prepped the above lineup of sushi friendly wines, mostly whites and a couple lighter red Burgundies. Go doesn’t have a liquor license, so there is no corkage! [...]
