Sliders & Sushi

I went on a mini food tour with KP the other day while we were at LACMA getting all cultured and shit. After part of the first exhibit both of our stomachs were playing their own version of dueling banjos so we headed across the way to check out all the food trucks. I got some sliders from this one called Home Run Sliders.

These were really good but it sucks that they were out of truffle fries. Its not like we were super late getting there or something. They were just out. KP got a five cheese grilled sandwich from another truck that she really liked.

Spare Tire On Wilshire

So after the nightmare of eating Hiatus and buying plants we parked and I asked Cam where that other food place she mentioned was. She pointed across the street to Spare Tire and I said “Let's go!” So we went there with no reservations because we G's like that. Immediately seated new the brick pizza oven. 

Order an Allagash white because that drink is the shit while Cam got some weird coconut beer thing. She liked it. I ordered the chicken and waffles plate which you can see looks crazy but tasted great. It had basel butter on top and the chicken was awesome. She got a prawn meal but didn't like them that much but enjoyed everything else on her plate. This place definitely picked up our moods after the last place. There are quite a few other things on their menu that look good that I'll have to try out. The waiter was cool and not pushy at all. The food was good. The music was cool. I liked this place a lot. For anyone wondering how we could eat two meals in less than an hour, fifteen minutes after eating the first place it was like we had nothing.

Hiatus Urban Barbecue

Tonight Cam and I planned to head somewhere to eat. There were three choices and when she mentioned the word “barbecue” I had to go with that option. There is a place called Hiatus Urban BBQ. Yelp reviews looked really good and it wasn't far from Cam so, fuck it, lets go.

What a bad idea this turned out to be.

I am gonna say what was good about this place. The guy behind the counter with the white hair and blue eyes. Very nice and knew about all of the food he was serving. I got the Moo something which had beef and horseradish. Way too much horseradish. The bread was whole wheat and when I opened up the container it looked like someone had elbow dropped it. It was ugly and tasted funky. I don't know what urban barbecue is but if this is it they can keep it. I'll stick with Bludsoe's.

Chip Taste Test

Camille gave me three bags of chips the other day because she loves me. She has a blog where she rates beers and chips called Potato Chips & Beer which you can check out by clicking all up in that link. The flavors she gave me were Lays Bacon & Cheddar Cheese, Lays Kettle Cooked Wasabi Ginger, and Lays Wavy Mango Salsa. I am washing these down with Sprite because the flavor isn't too strong and doesn't interfere with this test.

Lays Bacon & Cheddar Cheese

Smell: Slightly like sour cream and cheddar.

Look: Light skinned barbecue Lays.

Taste: Kinda like bacon but mostly like weak cheese. This isn't bad at all but since it has bacon it should taste like bacon. If you have these you can't drink anything because the flavor isn't strong enough to compliment anything.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
