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.
Pheasants in Hollywood
From District 13 in Hollywood
Ahh, D13 we meet again. With such an eclectic sausage selection, how could I not come back? I decided this would be the restaurant to knock off pheasant from my list.
Located in a mini mall location in Glendale, Eden Burger Bar is truly a diamond in the rough. Being the carnivore that I am, I was excited to try a meaty meal.
Yo Quiero Lobster
From La Otra Taqueria Escuela
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?
So I was eating alpaca on a typical weeknight…
from Mo-Chica in Downtown
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.
Before we proceed, let’s bow our heads and take a moment to look back on this past week. 5 beasts were eaten. 5 beasts were enjoyed:
