Lena and I had dinner at The Escondite, a gem of a bar/restaurant that serves delicious food in downtown LA. When looking for this gem, one must keep an eye out for a lighted blue arrow. Yes. The entrance is through a big parking lot and guess what? Parking is FREE! Amazing right? In downtown? That’s what I thought. After reading a few of the Yelp reviews, I knew we had to order the buffalo mushrooms and the Capt Kangaroo burger, which comes with their fresh cut fries. I would have also liked to try the French Toast tequila, but unfortunately, tequila and I, we are not friends. We also ordered the Gavin Macleod burger, which turned out to be one too many burgers. I truly felt like I wasted my half of that burger.
I’m going to be sad when The Escondite gets so popular that the wait is going to be an hour long. Maybe I should go back next week? Would that be too soon?
After dinner, Lena and I went to Urthe Caffe for some dessert and caffeine. According to Lena, the Duchess of Hazelnut cake (I think that’s what it was called) that we ordered tasted like a giant Ferrero Rocher. I have no complaints there. I love Ferrero Rocher. I love Urthe. Oh and I really love that they have free parking too.
I felt really fat when I woke up this morning, but the food from last night was worth it. Now I think I’m going to go lift some weights or something.
