Links At Bludso's On La Brea

Tonight Cam took me to Bludso's over on La Brea. As always you can see her clawing at food. I was worried that we wouldn't be able to find parking because of the construction and traffic and stuff but we managed to find a meter down the street and walk right in. Lots of folks inside watching basketball which I don't care about so I asked if we could sit outside. The lady said we could but at 8pm they might have to move us because it gets crazy busy but we wouldn't be there that long so it was cool. For drinks Cam got the Cherrywine and I got a Big Red. I love the Big Red because it tastes like a drink I used to get when I was little. I don't drink soda much anymore so it bit my tongue but was good.

We shared potato salad and macaroni and cheese and cornbread. They have changed their macaroni and it tastes way better than it used to. It wasn't bad before but it wasn't anything to write home about. Now its pretty damned good. I decided to try something different so I got a chicken and a beef link while Cam stuck with the chicken link and some food to go. I always like that this place is pretty fast and the food tastes so good. It used to be hard to get good barbecue nearby. Oh, and their hot version of sauce is spicy as hell. Beware.

Marix Margaritas & Food

Last week I swung by Marix with my cousin Mala. We were gonna go to Grub, then Continental Kitchen, and then I remembered Marix and how much I like it there. It was during a busy time on the weekend but the service was still pretty fast considering. We got a pitcher of margarita with no salt which made it faster to drink and boy did we drink! We had that and I got a burger because I'm not adventurous and I like their burgers. She got some stacked enchilada something or other that she liked. I don't think it blew her mind but she liked it. We stumbled our asses back to my place laughing like idiots and it was great.

Hurry Curry

On Memorial Day after a crazy ass hike in Murphy's Ranch with Koko we went to this place in Japantown called Hurry Curry. I think I have been to this area maybe four times in my life and twice it was for burgers. We went to one place and the wait was 45 minutes and fuck that because it was new, packed, and I was hungry and not even trying to wait that long. We got our seats super fast and our food came less than ten minutes after ordering it. Oh, and it all came up to less than $30. You can't beat that. 

For an appetizer I got the chicken which was boneless and so damned good. We both got curries. Koko got the Tokyo curry and I got the pork cutlet one. We tried each and they were both good. I got the hot one but it wasn't all that hot to me. If you are ever in that area check it out. The staff is cool, the food is good, not expensive, and the place is comfortable. Oh, I forgot to mention the salad. Not sure what that brown stuff is but it was great and made the salad awesome.
