Cliff’s Edge, Silver Lake

When a friend suggested Cliff’s Edge for our final dinner in LA, I immediately jumped at the chance to go, as it’s a restaurant I had always wanted to go to with Alex when we lived in Echo Park. We arrived and were seated out on the famous patio, which absolutely lives up to its…

Norah, West Hollywood

IMGP9681

Greetings! I just returned from a two week trip back home to America, where I got to spend time with friends and family, and of course stuff myself silly with delicious food at every stop! LA was the last stop on the list, and my amazing college friends flew in from NYC and Chicago for…

Spoon Me Sweetly

Awhile back we were lucky enough to be gifted some sweet treats from the darlings at Spoon Me Sweetly. Based out of LA, Spoon Me Sweetly specializes in spoons that create wonders when stirred through a mug of hot milk, tea, cocoa etc. Our beautiful package included three different flavoured spoons, sugar drops and ‘animal-style’ pretzel…

Taste on Melrose, West Hollywood (plus a promo via Lyft!)

melrose

Before coming to LA, one of my biggest worries was how I would get around without my lovely hybrid- I’m still a total mess when it comes to attempting public transportation in this city. As fate would have it, I woke up with an email from Lyft in my inbox, and all of my problems…

Tar & Roses, Santa Monica (plus a promo via LiveDeal!)

Well friends, I have some big news! I am typing this post from Melbourne- that’s right, Alex and I are finally reunited! I moved over here three days ago (hence the lack of posts- turns out moving your entire life across the world in two suitcases is fairly hectic) and am loving it so far….

Bäco Mercat, Downtown LA

eeeeek, over two weeks without a post! Apologies, apologies, apologies- our only excuse is that we are finally reunited and have been a bit too busy for blogging! But here is a post on a restaurant I’ve been waiting to eat at for ages- Bäco Mercat. Bäco’s reputation precedes it, as not many restaurants are…

Colori Kitchen, Downtown LA

Alex and I visited Colori Kitchen on the recommendation of our lovely hair dresser, and we were certainly not disappointed. It’s a small hole-in-the-wall near the fashion district downtown, but what the place lacks in size it makes up for with charm and delicious food. We started with their burrata salad (which was a special…

Mother Dough, Los Feliz LA

Before the long trek back to Aus, Priya and I went to Mother Dough for pizza. After careful scouring of the internet for a tasty pizza place near Echo Park we found Mother Dough, a trendy, modern, typically Los Feliz/Silver Lake spot.  Simple Italian pizzas cooked crisp in a wood fire oven, good service and…

Pink Taco, West Hollywood

Last week Alex and I went on a West Hollywood adventure, and found ourselves at Pink Taco for a beautiful outdoor lunch. The chips and salsa the restaurant provided was standard, delicious fare- I do wish the chips had a bit more salt though. We decided to complement the chips with some house guac, which…

Mo-Chica, Downtown LA

mochica

A few weeks ago Alex and I had a date at the opera, and headed to Mo-Chica for a late night meal afterwards. Mo-Chica is Picca Peru’s sister restaurant, brainchild #2 of Chef Ricardo Zarate. The two menus complement each other well, and picking a favourite between the two would be difficult. The quinotto was…
