Yesterday Cam and I headed to Wilshire which is her old stomping grounds. We went to the museum and then headed to The Counter because Tom Bergin's wasn't opening for a while. We were gonna just get some hooch at The Counter but Cam was like “Wanna just eat here?” Of course, was my response. Anything to sit still. We got our drinks which were an Alaagash Tripel for me which has like 11% alcohol and she got a gin with pickle juice with extra pickle which I am never going to try. My drink was larger than it should've been because a new guy was being trained. Worked out well for me.
For food I got the barbecue burger with fries and she got the WTF turkey burger minus the bacon and those little fried onion thingies. Then we noticed that they also had a new fried chicken sandwich. So fuck it. We got that, too. We split it because if we had both gotten one each we would have had to be rolled to the car. The burgers were good and my ass was hungry since I'd only had cereal and coffee so far. The chicken sandwich was good but both of us had to pull off some of the jalapenos because they were not playing with the amount they put. I have no problem with hot food but I'm not a fan of losing the feeling in my lips. We just ate, talked, and laughed like fools while watching all the strange ass people that walk Wilshire. Seriously. There are some really strange looking folks that occupy that street.
I found these pictures from a few weeks back that I forgot to post about. JP and I went to Golden State about a month ago and Fritzi Coop at the Farmer's Market the same day during a mini Fat Tour. We both got bacon burgers with fries. I got the sweet potato ones which are hot as lava but we still shoved them in out mouths. I think we split the chicken sandwich because she called me out for being a fatty fatty fat fat and wanting even more food. This was her first time getting this and she liked it and wished we had another.
About two or three weeks ago Cam and I went to Lala's over on Melrose.I used to go to this place a lot but stopped after that tomato scare years ago. Remember that nonsense? Ever since then Lala's changed their menu and later made adding tomato to something extra. I forgot to add the picante but the chicken and fries were still good. Cam got this fancy ass salad thing. Lala's is still good but the parking is almost always a problem unless you get valet which is something I almost refuse to do when the sun is still out. This was also on a day where we worked in her yard so I drank about five Sprite's which they refilled quickly.
