Right in the uptown area of my hometown, resides one of my favorite restaurants, Phlight.  This Spanish inspired, tapas restaurant, provides a delectable selection of food, and international wine and beer to choose from. There is such a warm, amorous, and cultivated atmosphere, that will make you want to go back for more. My friends and I love going at the end of a stressful week to dine and unwind. We love getting a few different dishes to share, accompanying glasses of vino, and of course, ending our delicious meal with some sweets.

What we ordered: Sangria/Vino, Sweet Potato Fries, Pork Belly Tacos, Empanadas, Paella, & Mexican Chocolate Souffle.

Recommend: Paella, Sangria, and Mexican Chocolate Souffle.

Restaurant Review: Bizarra Capital

Restaurant Name: Bizarra Capital
Location: 12706 Philadelphia St, Whittier CA
Halfsies Rating: ★★★★☆
Halfsies Bank: $$
Genre: Mexican
Great for: Brunch with girlfriends

It’s a rainy Sunday here in LA, and what better way to spend a pre-Oscars morning than mimosa-brunching with the GFs?

We decided to try out Bizarra Capital, a spot recently featured in the LAtimes as both trendy & delicious.

What we loved: super cheap, super delicious, super filling, and super-cute brick backdrops for photoshooting our rainy-day outfits (score!)

What we’d improve: the place doesn’t have bottomless mimosas! For us, that’s a necessity. But at only $4 a pop, no one’s really complaining

What we’d recommend: chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, & agave syrup margaritas
