MOrning Report

  • A bald Eagle that was released during pre-game festivities at Dodger Stadium on the 4th of July flew out of the ballpark instead of to its handler as fans looked on. The eagle, which is from the L.A. Zoo, was caught later. KTLA
  • Fans of Carnitas Michoacán #3 were not happy to learn that the 24-hour Boyle Heights taco stand will be closing after more than three decades to make way for a Panda Express. L.A. Now

    NO PANDA EXPRESS. It is wrong to eat the meat of pandas.

    • Eating Pandas is wrong, and the rest of their food just isn’t good either. Although Panda E did get its start in Southern California,
      At least there is still Carnitas Michoacan.

  2. Panda Express??? Ew:(

  3. Nice photo. and yuck Panda Express.

  4. Just what the world needs, another Panda Express :/

  5. Nudging a redundant taco joint aside for Chinese food isn’t a bad idea. Particularly considering that there are hardly any good/healthy chinese food-joints in the area but for a chain chinese-food joint? Hardly an improvement but it doesn’t even make a noticeable ding in the taco scene of E/NELA. It’ll be interesting to see if the demand sustains the new business. Considering the prevalence of taco-joints and lack of chinese food-joints, I think chances are better than 50-50 that this business succeeds. After all, considering some of the current favorites that were listed (King Taco, Siete Mares, Tepeyac) the loss of a gourmet dining experience is not what Michoacan customers seem to be lamenting but rather the loss of a late-night food-joint that they can rely on to satisfy their salt, carb, and chile-pepper habit.
