Call it the FG&J -- foie gras and jelly. Today's Flickr pool photo of a doughnut from & e (yes, that's the real name) inside downtown's new UMAMIcatessen comes from blogger Darin Dines. "At $8, this was probably the most expensive donut I've ever had," he writes. At least it's also picturesque, with the foie gras mousse oozing out, and peanut topping. Will maple-bacon doughnuts lose the spotlight? Maybe, maybe not. Remember that foie gras will be banned in California beginning in July. (Expect many foie gras-themed dinners until then, including one tonight at Haven Gastropub.) Got your own food shots? Consider uploading to our photo pool. Because sharing a photo doesn't mean having to share your dessert.

    ChocoChicken is a restaurant dedicated to chocolate-flavored chicken. It sounds like a joke.

It is not.

    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
