Relaxing last night after the Festival of Books, we caught the Dotch Cooking Show, which Lindsay discovered last summer. It was every bit as weird and delighful as she promised. "Beef bowl is in your dreams. You want to eat it now."

We don't really care whether a contestant chooses "Deal" or "No Deal," whether or not they become a millionaire, or what's behind door #3, but somehow the question "Beef bowl or pork bowl?" kept us transfixed for an hour. In real life, of course, the answer can be "Yes." You can have beef on rice for lunch and pork on rice for dinner, or the other way around, for about $5 a meal. Somehow, though, the sheer weirdness of this show made the simple question entertaining. It also made us hungry, even though we were eating dinner while watching it.

What's your favorite place to get beef bowl or pork bowl in LA?
