Sqril and other things


It's been a long time coming.  I FINALLY got the chance to eat at Sqirl.  I've been wanting to eat here for a long time and the stars aligned in my favor.  


We ordered a sweet and a savory. For the savory, the sorrel pesto rice bowl with sausage.  For sweet, the french toast with strawberry jam.  I am usually indecisive and a lesser me would have caved when confronted with the decision to go with the ricotta toast.  But, I've been watching the Munchies How to Make French Toast with Jessica Koslow and it was blowing my mind how good it looked so I had to try it.  Also ricotta and jam reminds me of eating bagels and cream cheese with jam.  My mom's go to snack. I'll get around to ordering it and Instragramming it...eventually.  I did have to make the last minute decision about the sorrel pesto rice bowl or the crispy rice salad.  I went sorrel and added sausage. Thank God I made that last minute add on. 

Usually, I love savory breakfast/brunch. Savory is always my answer.  But I don' want to say it fell short, because I liked it, but I should have went with something else.  It was like something I make when Shane is out of town.  A throw together meal.  I liked the sausage.  It was really good and you can taste the quality of meat.  I could have also used more hot sauce.  

But the French Toast was FUCKING MIND BLOWING!  It was nothing like I have ever had anywhere. 
That's all I will say.


It was my brothers birthday and we already knew we were going to be in LA the whole day. It was a double treat for me because his fiancĂ©e Jen bought us a pot of Seascape Strawberry and Rose Geranium jam.  The strawberries are from Oxnard too!  I am very excited to eat it with my yogurt and maybe attempt to make the french toast.

The line wasn't too bad and it actually worked out.  That the timing between people in line ordering to the people leaving was almost perfect that almost everyone had some seat.  I also saw Jessica Koslow there working and I got really nerdy.  It is inspiring to see someone you look up to working and enjoying it.  Sqirl is so charming it makes me so happy to know that there are places like this in the world. 

I will be back,especially for that vanilla bean lemonade.



And now, Halloween pics.
