Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries - Huntington Beach
I’m feeling a nice stroll along the boardwalk… even if it’s a SoCal chilly 50 degrees outside. However, instead of a teeth-chattering walk, Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries restaurant was able to bring the warm wind and sandy beach vibes to me in the best way possible: WITH A BURGER.
Chika chika boooom chicken From Pink Taco in Century City
Known for their edgy vibe and Mexican food, Pink Taco was always a place I wanted to experience. I finally got to go there for one of my friend’s birthday dinner, and my Pink Taco cherry was popped. Even though I eat chicken multiple times a week, I decided to try out and blog about my chicken adventure here. Not every restaurant can serve a mean chicken, and I wanted to see if Pink Taco had what it takes.
Any day you eat lobster is a good day. La Otra Taqueria Escuela made my day GREAT. This young 1 month old restaurant is already winning Rookie of the Year in my book for Beverly Blvd. restaurants. A casual, quirky, Mexican BYOB restaurant right next to The Grove, La Otra Taqueria Escuela serves tostadas, tamales, burritos and tacos- carne asada, branzino, shrimp and lobster.
Australia to United States to Germany From Brats Brothers in Sherman Oaks
I walked into Brats Brothers expecting a pretty basic sausage place. You know, some restaurant that tries to make itself unique by having a “wild brats” list, but in reality the food is mediocre? Well, I walked into Brat Brothers and got teleported to Munich, Germany! Specifically the Hofbräuhaus. Brat Brothers’ did its best to resemble the famous beerhouse, Hofbräuhaus, in Germany, up to its interesting meat selections. Perfect place to try kangaroo!
Another type of yolk From Yen Sushi & Sake in Los Feliz
Instead of trying cooked quail, I decided to try it raw. That’s right, simple quail yolk straight from the egg. I’ve been eating at Yen Sushi & Sake for a while and I’ve seen quail on the menu, so I thought… Why not?
I was skimming the LA Times Food section as per usual when the words “Mo-Chica, the alpaca question” caught my eye. I’ve been looking for a place to eat llama or alpaca, and Mo-Chica was my foodie saving grace. As a crazy carnivore on a mission, I made plans to eat there that night.
Oh deer, oh deer, oh deer from Palms Thai in Hollywood
I’ve been hearing about this Palms Thai for a while. I’ve heard that it’s good Thai food made by an Elvis impersonator- could be a recipe for an interesting experience. When I walked in I was surprised… no one ever told me the place was MASSIVE! It was like a huge dinner club, with tables upon tables upon tables, and all the servers had headsets. I was greeted by 3 people and then led to a table. They had one person bring me a menu, another to bring me water, another to take my order and another to bring me my food! I had a momentary concern about tipping all these people at the end of my meal.
