More Neapolitan-style pizza hits L.A. when Wildcraft Sourdough Pizza opens Feb. 25 in Culver City in the historic Beaux Arts Washington Building on Culver Boulevard. Set to open for lunch and dinner, the sit-down pizza place will serve wood-fired sourdough pizza that crosses the Neapolitan tradition with Southern California culinary inventiveness. The "wild" in the restaurant's name is a reference to the wild yeast in the sourdough starter that is used to make the dough for the pizzas. The "mother dough," fed daily, is the work of executive chef Tin Vuong (also the chef at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach)

This is how to eat an order of pani puri at Samosa House East, home of some of the best Indian snacks in Los Angeles. First, roll up your sleeves. Pani puri is chaat -- Indian street snack food -- and demands to be eaten with the fingers, lustily, and with some degree of abandon. Then get ready to move. Pani puri comes in parts, and it demands a certain degree of focus and speed to assemble. There's the puri -- half a dozen or so egg-sized, eggshell-delicate balls of crisp, transparent fried bread.
