LA Times’ DailyDish: A Citation, Obama’s Garden, and Other Deals

by Kelsey

Frugal Nosh is an avid follower of LA Times’ Daily Dish and we loved it so much today that we wanted to post three (that’s right – three) highlights from the blog.

1. Daily Dish reported that the Kogi Korean BBQ taco truck was allegedly given a citation when it parked in front of the MySpace headquarters in Beverly Hills today. However, Kogi reported that it seemed to be a misunderstanding about which permits are required in what areas of LA and will be cleared up within the next two weeks. Follow Kogi on Twitter for more updates about the temporary hiatus.

2. The Obama family made big news today (see Daily Dish’s article here) when Michelle announced plans to build a garden on the White House grounds to supply vegetables – many of them organic – for the White House kitchen. We are very excited about the First Family’s plans to reduce food miles and encourage organic growing!

3. Culver City’s Beacon, an Asian cafe, will continue its Restaurant Week success with three-course $28 prix-fixe meals (every day but Saturday through the end of March). However, Frugal Nosh is even more excited about its Saturday three-course lunches for $12.95. Daily Dish says this special lunch menu includes brunch items like Portuguese sausage, pancakes, and scrambled eggs. Yum.
Beacon: 3280 Helms Ave., Culver City. (310) 838-7500.

Fun OC tip from the Daily Dish: The Orange County Restaurant Assn. debuts Happy Hour Week in Orange County on April 12. Many favorite OC restaurants and bars will offer happy hours specials on drinks and their best appetizers for a whole week. Visit for more happy information about the festivities.
