Pine & Crane Noodle Co. will soon be serving up Chinese food in Silver Lake , notes Eater LA. The open and airy locale on Polka Dot Plaza will offer a succinct Chinese and Taiwanese menu. It remains to be seen, however, if this location at 1521 Griffith Park Boulevard can sustain an establishment based primarily on foot traffic given the plaza’s car-free zone.

- Foot traffic happens to be a mainstay for Highland Park’s El Mar Azul. The food truck has made a stretch next to Sycamore Grove Park their own, says Food GPS. There they are dishing up delicious Mexican seafood that’s also easy on the wallet. Their Tostada de Camaron serves as is a flavorful Trojan Horse for dish’s plump shrimp.
- Traveling further south on the gastronomical world map to Argentina, Los Feliz prepares for the arrival of Cordoba. Argentine-influenced menu will be featured in the restaurant that will take over the former spot of Skylight Theater on Vermont Avenue, reports Eater LA. The restaurant will be run by Joshua Drew of FarmShop.
- La Mascota Bakery in Boyle Heights isn’t anything new. In fact it’s been a neighborhood staple since 1952, but Food GPS still can’t believe the value that their deliciously cheesy pork tamales serve up day after day. At just $1.50 each, it’s like we’re still living in 1952.
- In Atwater Village, Eater LA notes that Canele will be welcoming cookbook writer David Tanis for an exclusive dinner on March 31. Guests reserving a spot for the special evening will receive a signed copy of the book.
