Some of the Best Bites in Town
The Globe Salad
This salad has been honed for decades by Globe owner Danny Guiteras, and it delivers a perfect combination of tastes: grilled chicken, green apple, gorgonzola cheese, carmelized walnuts, mesclun field greens, and sherry red grape vinaigrette. It’s also a favorite of local NBC news anchor Jackie Nespral, who calls it “something healthy but exquisite… that never disappoints!”
They are made from sweet soy pancake batter that is fried into a crisp, yet chewy, pancake that is sliced into eighths and served with scallions and sour cream. Not what you might expect in a Ramen noodle shop, but an instant addiction for any regular at Ichimi restaurant on Salzedo between Miracle Mile and Aragon.
Once, in another lifetime, we had a dish called Slippery Shrimp, which we ate at a tiny family restaurant in Los Angeles’ Chinatown. We have searched for years to find a similar dish of shrimp tempura tossed in tangy, spicy, sweet chili sauce. Then we found it, under a different name, at Red Koi on Miracle Mile.
