Xmas eve under the Sun
Tavern in Brentwood.
Butter-crumbed eggs with arugula and soft polenta
Chorizo and eggs with sofrito and fried potatoes
Maria had never been to the Hollywood walk. But I've never been to Alcatraz or ridden a trolley car
tub of pork butt...
This is the plaza where Orochon Ramen (as seen on man vs food) is.
Lazy Ox Canteen as suggested by Patricia
- Bar staff was excellent.
- food was excellent.
- wait staff was hovering and annoying (well according to my sister and her friend, I had my back to them)
- I don't mind eating all sorts of flavors but the menu wasn't unified enough for my sister.
Periwinkle from the Chef. You have to eat/extract them with a tooth pick (those are chopsticks in the picture).
This was the best thing I ate at Lazy Ox. Pork Chicharones skewers with Poblano Sauce.
Sashimi of yellowtail with castelvetrano olives, pomegranate & fuyu persimmon
Charred octopus with pickled shallots, corona beans, garlic-rapini & calamansi vinaigrette
Roast cauliflower gratin with gruyere & ras el hanout
Braised beef paleron with cream of wheat, kumquats & red wine.
This one was just ok actually.
