A Valley Kid’s Guide to: Dessert

First off, I’d like to formally apologize for neglecting this blog as long as I did BUT here’s a sweet treat for you all. I mentioned before that I wanted to do a sort of Valley Kid’s Guide series pertaining to where you can get certain types of food in the San Fernando Valley. This is meant for those who still want to go out with friends but don’t want to drive too far 🙂

EGGSLUT.

This scrumptious looking breakfast sandwich can be found in DTLA’s very own Grand Central Market. The eatery lies at the front of it all, closest to the sidewalks, of the market. While other eateries are stationed nearby (tacos, ramen, ice cream, juiceries, etc), Eggslut remains the most popular attraction of the entire market. On a Thursday afternoon, it wrapped around the back of the stand, but on weekends, the line is rumored to have ran all the way down the sidewalk. Despite being extremely busy, all the staff maintained positive attitudes and while you did still feel bad they’d have to work during a rush, they never faltered. I was able to speak to a man who I presume to be the owner of the establishment and he was super nice, friendly, and courteous. You can tell he’s a passion for what he does and he loves to hear feedback from everyone who decides to swing by.

brunch n views

This trendy place is known as the Roof on Wilshire– located on the roof of the Hotel Wilshire on Wilshire Blvd (the redundance kind of reminds me of Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc Jacobs… lol). This rooftop brunch has been praised for it’s great service, amazing views, and the quality of the food. You can use valet parking within the hotel for $6 with validation from the restaurant.

STAYS IN SD

I spent my 21st birthday in San Diego this weekend and I’ve gotta say it was one of the most fun nights I’ve had. There were so many places we wanted to go, but alas, not enough time 😥 I did get the opportunity to visit a few spots I’ve been wanting to try though!

Better Buzz Coffee in Point Loma is as good as it is trendy. Literally down the street from the hotel, we got the opportunity to pay this place a visit. Being the lactard and anti-coffee person I am, I ordered a soy Chai latte for about $4.50. In my head I was like, I’m sure it’ll taste how any other chai latte would, BUT OMG. IT WAS SO GOOD. EVEN FOR JUST A SOY CHAI. Everyone else got things like the Vanilla Buzz and frappes, and even those were good enough for my anti-coffee tastebuds.

Bea Bea’s

Bea Bea’s, supposedly pronounced bee-bee’s, is located in a large grocery-ish plaza in Burbank. Katrina and I gave this place a visit one Sunday afternoon for brunch after craving Eggs Benedict and green tea pancakes. When we arrived, the crowd waiting to be seated was no joke. Regardless, we were starving and wanted to try it so we put our name down and dealt with the wait. Despite being at the end of the list, we were seated within at least 15-20 minutes, even though they said it’d be about 30 minutes. They were very quick to clean up and seat new parties whenever tables opened up and I appreciated that.

EAT THIS!

Eat This Cafe located in West Hollywood was the most recent victim of my ‘do it for the blog’ endeavors~ The cafe that’s been receiving a lot of PR lately for it’s scrumptious looking eggs benedict, but the cafe itself is located on a corner, and it’s not particularly spacious inside.

However, it didn’t take long for us to get seated. We literally walked in and they were cleaning up a table for us. We ordered the Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict ($15.50), the Buttermilk Pancakes ($11.00), the Avocado Toast ($8.00), the seasonal fruit ($4.00), and the Home Fries ($4.00)(which are basically just potatoes).

Mariah loved the pancakes and I personally really loved the avocado toast. I honestly didn’t really find the crab cakes eggs benedict to my liking, mostly because the more I ate it, the fishier it tasted and I don’t like fish. Besides that, everything else was good! I just ended up eating only the egg for the second crab cake HAHAHA. It was pretty busy but I never really saw anyone waiting around for a particularly long time. It was also funny because when we took pictures of the food, no one even gave a passing glance… it must be a common thing HAHA.

I think I’ll come back again and try one of the paninis 🙂

These photo spots were located right next to the cafe and across the street~
