Mix in whatever proportions you desire! (I usually go big on the non-lettuce items bc let’s be real, lettuce is soooo boring.)
I really enjoy pairing this meal with my favorite coconut water. It’s $11 which is like WOW, but I continue to buy it time & time again. That’s a testament to how.amazingly.good. this stuff is! Try it here!
Restaurant Name: Zengo Location: 395 Santa Monica Pl, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Halfsies Rating: ★★★★★ Halfsies Bank: $$$ Genre: Tapas Great for: Brunch
What we loved: $39 brunch includes unlimited tapas & drinks for a two-hour period
What we’d improve: If you don’t make a rezzie, tough luck. We wish there were better accomodations for walk-ins, but this place is so great, we’re actually okay with making brunch plans ahead of time.
What we’d recommend: Ask your server to bring out an assortment of dishes, proportionate to the number of guests you have at your table. Once you’ve tried everything on the extensive brunch menu, you can request seconds (and thirds) of your favorite items!! I’m in love with the empanadas, brussel sprouts, sushi rolls, yucca fries, and meatballs!!
Be forewarned… on weekends Zengo is known for DJs spinning hot tunes! It can get loud, but is a perfect way to keep the party going on Sunday Funday!
Restaurant Name: Hiatus Location: 1292 S. La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA Halfsies Rating: ★★★★★ Halfsies Bank: $ Great for: Lunch, taco tuesday
What I loved: That the amazing slow-cooked BBQ is also healthy! It’s the best of both worlds!! Not to mention the amazing menu that is super straightforward (think Chipotle assembly line). Don’t forget to try the sauces and slaws (I love the Horseradish Sauce and the Kale/Apple Slaw)!
What I’d improve: I wish this badass space was bigger so that I could bring everyone I know!
What I’d recommend: A plate with pulled pork, spicy sauce (if horseradish isn’t your thing), and any of the slaws! You CANNOT leave without a smoked chocolate chip cookie! **They’re so good, mention Halfsies anytime through 8/1/14 to get a free cookie!!
Think the food looks bomb? The place is also amazingly decorated with rustic art-inspired pieces!
We even got to hang out with the owner / head chef! Thanks for hosting us Hiatus… my mouth is still watering!
