First, locate the tiny, unassuming entrance to Little London Cafe, a long, narrow, white linoleum corridor of a diner in the middle of the San Gabriel Valley's Chinese food paradise. A sign outside claims that the restaurant specializes in fish and chips. Ignore this sign. Inside, you will be presented with a laminated, black menu that lists pedestrian fish and chips and Americanized teriyaki bowls. Ignore this also. Ask for the Kalimantan menu.

This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Keith Johnson in Rancho Palos Verdes: "Last summer, my girlfriend and I spent our vacation on Florida's Amelia Island. We stopped by a lovely, quaint Spanish restaurant in Fernandina Beach called España . Its gambas Mozambique (shrimp Mozambique style) was extraordinary. I'd love the recipe so we could enjoy this fabulous dish more than just once a year. " If I didn't know how easy this dish was to make, I'd be planning a cross-country trip to Amelia Island too.
