This is one of the place I've been wanted to come and I finally made it.
It was kinda hard to find this place. Also I think valet parking was $8.
When I looked at the menu, I was like.. oh well.. Because I can't eat cheese and half of their menu has cheese. Anyway, after looking at the menu for 5-10 minutes, I decided to order two appetizers and desserts. My appetizers were very small portion. Not big enough to share. But that was perfect for me because I didn't wanna eat too much plus I wanted to save some room for desserts.
Crabmeat Justine pot pie $13
crab gratin topped with buttery french toast
Popcorn shrimp & grits $16
jumbo shrimp, heirloom tomato, popped corn cream sauce & creamy grits
I don't like grits, but that's because I only had instant grits before and they taste nasty. But these grits are different. They taste homemade and I actually liked it.
"All-about-the-cheese" Mac & cheese flight $18
Porter beer cheese, corkscrew pasta & rye croutons
Cypress grove goat cheese, conchiglie & popped corn
Fiscalini Xtra Mature cheddar, lasagnette & Ritz crackers
My friend ordered these and really liked them
Porky Pig banana split $11
Bacon & banana ice cream, Jalapeno hot fudge, brandied cherries & caramel pork rinds
This is the most unusual banana split I've ever had. Everything taste unique. I'm not sure if I'd order this again.
LAPD doughnut shake down $11
Boston cream pie doughnuts & chocolate dipping sauce with strawberry milkshake, strawberry compote & strawberry whipped cream
yummy. can't go wrong.
