Did you make it out to L.A. Foodie’s #BiteFlight event on April 27? No? Saywha? Why not? It was totally amazing. (You are coming to the next one, right?)
Let’s take a look at the amazing beers, burgers, desserts, and other goodies that were on hand at our crazy-cool venue, Bar & Garden, the hip new tasting room/liquor store in Culver City’s Arts District. (If you haven’t been, get over there and check it out—seriously. The owners know their booze, and their selection is uh-maz-ing.)
The #BiteFlight party got rolling at 6 p.m. and didn’t slow down for a single minute of the three-hour event.
#BiteFlite attendees were treated to tastings of four unique brews
We’d be hard-pressed to name a favorite out of the group—it was quite a diverse selection. But suffice it to say, they were all intoxicatingly tasty. And seeing as how #BiteFlight was L.A. Foodie’s first foray into a formal beer tasting, it gave us the opportunity to roll out our newest game with attendees: How Bitter Is Your Beer? Check out the fun:
On the west side of Culver City, right when you think ‘I’m not in Culver City anymore,’ you’ll find The Corner Door. Sleek with vintage inspired décor, this restaurant boasts a buzzing atmosphere with a well-thought out menu.
Littered with cozy booths and modern tables, this is a good place for dinner or drinks. You can tell a lot of time went into the menu; it’s rather short, but you can tell the chef has chosen carefully.
For starters, I have to highly recommend their Brussels sprouts. Fresh produce roasted to sweet perfection with feta cheese on top is just so tasty. I usually don’t find appetizers that wow me, but this one definitely does every time.
Whether you’ve already been to Paris or just want to imagine yourself eating French comfort foods at a cozy cafe in the land of romance, Meet in Paris in downtown Culver City can take your tastebuds on an adventure without a plane ticket. They invited us to come down and see if they could change our mind about mussels…
It has been my experience that in Los Angeles, soft serve is treated like the red-headed stepchild of the ice cream family. Seriously, think about the last time you’ve seen a place selling soft serve.
Well, as a born and raised Midwesterner, I find this unacceptable, and even more so, there’s no soft serve in the city that ‘dips’ their cones. For those unfamiliar with this concept, it’s soft serve that is dipped into a bucket of hot chocolate sauce (or butterscotch, caramel….any flavored sauce) that then freezes onto the ice cream forming a hard crust. It took me a while, but I finally found Covina Tasty Freeze that offers chocolate, butterscotch and cherry dipped cones. Below is the butterscotch.
Nothing warms my heart more than seafood—especially a good moist crab cake. This sucker is seasoned to perfection and laid upon a slather of creamy remoulade with some yummy citrus and micro greens for presentation. How fabulous does that look? Well, it tastes just as fab.
People at Chakra are proud of their restaurant, and rightfully so. Halal-prepared dishes are beautifully presented using super-fresh ingredients. Combine that with a great ambiance, and this place is a winner. I was treated to a veritable feast of deliciousness to enjoy.
