Silver Lake Ramen roams on to York; Frogtown’s Salazar launches ‘1990s’ website; immigrant-run Eastside eateries honored


Salazar’s flashback-to-the-‘90s website “is so bad it is pure gold,” according to Los Angeles Magazine.

Five web design elements are listed that justify the reasoning, including a dancing MC Hammer gif and a broken link that lead to a dead page of a misspelled URL, salazrla.com. Experience the pre-CSS site while listening to the super cheesy “What is Love?” by Haddaway.

We’d like to add a sixth element that makes it so old-school dynamic: When you click on their email, their address just shows up in your message as a hash tag (or as some of us referred to the symbol in the pre-hash era, a pound sign). Now that’s one way to stand out from the crowd. Salazar is located in the 2400 block of Fletcher Drive in Frogtown.
