Missed out on secret dining experience MI1020? There’s still a chance for you to get closer to the action and win an incredible trip to Los Angeles, including a series of fantastic dining experiences, with Gingerline and the Nokia Lumia 1020.
One lucky winner and their guest will win return flights to LAX and a seven-night stay for two in a centrally located hotel. Included with this incredible prize are evening meals for two in some of the City of Angels’ coolest restaurants.
On your first night, you’ll be dining in the dark at Opaque. A totally different experience is in store for the second night, when you’ll visit the famous Miceli’s Italian Restaurant in Hollywood, where singing waiters and waitresses will serenade you with Italian arias, show tunes and classical standards.
Eating gets cosy on the third evening at Supperclub, where diners enjoy food on oversized white beds. Downtown LA is your destination on the fourth night at The Edison, a steampunk marriage of refined industrial architecture and art deco chic. Next, you’ll visit the Crocker Club, based in a converted bank vault. On your penultimate evening you’ll see the Thai Elvis performing at Palms Thai, before ending this gastronomic adventure at The Stinking Rose, where everything edible is made out of garlic.

Wok On Fire
This street-food spot on Old Compton Street whips up pan-Asian stir-fries to order. Presumably the name comes from their speed and expertise, though don't be surprised to see flames when cooking, too. It looks like it does brisk trade with those grabbing lunch to take away. The three-step menu format looks pretty simple: choose a base (various noodles, rice or a veg combo); add bulk from meats, vegetables, bamboo shoots, cashew nuts and pineapple; and finish with a sauce such as black beans and soy, sweet and sour, teriyaki, peanut or oyster. Toppings include peanuts, fried garlic, fried onions, sesame seeds and fresh coriander. Everything is then stir-fried to order, with seats to sit on, should you want to settle in.
