This place was okay, If I was a tourist I'm sure I would have enjoyed the celebrity overload vibe inside. The milk shake was neither the worst and by no means the best I have ever had. I think all the food along that WEHO strip is basically over priced crap.
I love Dave's Chillin N Grillin. I've been eating there since the first month they have been open. Everything tastes amazing and is fresh who needs proccessed foods. My all time favorite is the French Dip Melt, I've ate at least 1,000. My ex girlfriend ate the Turkey Melt everyday for three years and loved it. If you like hot stuff you have to put some of their world famous Pepper Spread on your sandwich. It makes any meal.
I love Smoke City Market. The brisket and beef ribs are amazing. Most people know the sides are soso and the employees are not the most interesting but forget all that. Your there to eat chunks of slow cooked amazing meat. Sit back get a glass of Shiner Bock and eat!
Atwater Special need I say more. One of the best breakfast's in the city. I also love their pastry selection. Very busy place but who cares we live in Los Angeles it's something you should be use too by now. Also very cute tattooed hipster chicks working behind the counter.
I've been here twice and each time had one of the best meals of my life. I had no complaints the 1st time but the 2nd time they forgot our ticket and we didn't get our food for an hour. That sucked, but the Smoked Salmon Benedict on a potatoe pancake almost made up for it. The other must have at Square One is the French Toast with Pecans and home made vanilla whip cream. I've heard great things about the bacon carmel syrup.
There are alot of things I love about Kansas City BBQ. The first is the sliced beef, I suggest the sandwich with fries and a side of the beans(the beans have brisket in them). The sauce has a great flavor that I never get tired of. My favorite thing about Kansas Ciy is the price. It shouldn't cost you 20 dollars to eat well, 14 bucks fills me up every time. The bar is a great place to grab a beer with some NOHO locals and watch the Lakers play.
What an amzing place. Great cozy small place to bring someone special. There only open four days a week so they can have the same kitchen staff every night. Make reservations and order the savory crepe.
Oinkster seems to have started the slow fast food craze. There fresh ingrediants are defiantly the highlight at Oinkster. I use to go about twice a week during there happy hour for the burger and fry combo. That all ended when Guy and triple D showed up in June of 09. I've only been back three times since. The burger I had last week still tastes great(don't expect Umami, this is classic American backyard bbq style) but the garlic aioli fry sauce is defiantly still there best thing. The purple UBU shake(UBU is a yam) tastes so so and seems like more of a novelty to me. Most of the condiments are made in house, including a Carolina bbq sauce that tasts like straight vinegar.
You don't get any more old school than Nick's Cafe. I've only been by once but it was quite an experience. The food is standard greasy spoon fare with one exception, tomatoe preserves. I never would have imagined that at 31 I would try a new condiment that might be the tastiest I have ever had. Great place to go next time you have an early meeing in downtown.
