A couple margaritas ($10.00 each):

... started off our evening well at Cascabel:

... along with a dish of bacon guacamole ($7.00):

... with some crisp chips and a swell salsa.

We were bananas for the fried plantains ($5.00):

... followed by duck confit ($10.00) stuffed tacos:

... with goat cheese, black bean puree and avocado salsa accented with pickled shallots.

Salmon ($24.00):

... swam in at the requested rare with salsa verde, asparagus:

... white beans and zukes in a migration-worthy main.

Cascabel rings with relishable rations that will warrant a return.

Al fresco ‘freshment is offered in the garden of Edendale:

... where ample seating on the patios:

... dining room or at the bar (where we rested):

... provided a perch to peruse the peppy potion purveyors produce a “Barlie Chewer” ($12.00):

... with rye, vermouth and gingerbeer and a Boulevardier ($11.00):

... paved with bourbon. Both were good glugs but got quickly diluted with the small chips of ‘dale ice.

Calamari ($10.00):

... had a surprising addition of chopped peppers that put a perky presence into this pub grub.

A Cheddar-charged burger ($15.00):

... was cheery chompage with standard issue spuds.

This bar serves up quick and peppy food to lots of regulars, but it’s more of a neighborhood spot than a destination den.

A “Paper Plane” flew in on a breeze of bourbon, lift of lemon and an air of Aperol and Amaro Nonino while the “Fancy Free” ($12.00):

...loosened our feet with a beat of bitters over bourbon from the whisky-centric wares at Everson Royce Bar.

Osteria Mozza alum Matt Molina oversees the chow which included sensational sheets of ‘scuitto ($6.00).

This pleasing pig was cradled with cava to bubble these beautiful blankets.

Pork and shrimp dumplings ($8.00):

... and a solid burger ($10.00):

... were greetable meat-middled munches that made for solid snackage at this popular potion provider.

... sundaes ($8.00):

... at ICDC looped us into the decision making with our respective choices of a salt and pepper caramel donut and a buttermilk brown butter donut to police the placement of chocolate almond coffee caramel ice cream.

This dashing delivery was webbed in caramel and chocolate sauce with a lashing of lightened lactose lassoing this hedonistic helping.

Each element was exemplary and a good MO would be to circle back for more ICDC ASAP.

A carrot ($7.50):

... was scraped, spiced, sous vided and ‘scaraded as a sausage at Fritzi Dog:

... where this fauxfurter sprouted with Brussels in a meatless mound married with gremolata. While good, more moisture might stick the landing of this orange door hinge.

The “Snappy O’Brien ($8.95):

... was a carnivore cradle of bacon, peppers, cheese and tots. This was a good dog but not required retrieval.

Fritzi franks were likable linkage while lazing at the Farmers Market.

Our go to Burbank breakfast bunker is the Coffee Commissary.

Not only are the pour overs ($5.00):

... worth a pore over, the potatoes are golden gobs of crusty carbohydrates.

Cups of Madcap and Supersonic were chocolatey and citrusy sippage along with a pork belly burrito ($10.00):

... with pico de gallo, Cheddar, avocado and a fried egg.

A Benedict ($10.00):

... was encumbered with a batch of sous vided eggs and avocado on a house made English muffin. This imitation-worthy chow keeps us game for more.

Lost Knight last night included El Segundo and Monkfish draughts and pub grub.

Sausage rolls ($10.00):

... were swell swaddled swine on a foundation of fried potatoes that also supported fish tacos ($10.00):

... and battered fish ($10.00).

This nice knight nook was a friendly place:

... for darts, suds and spuds.

Students sticking around Bricks & Scones:

... made up a millennial office space that was a bit crowded, so we found our way outside for a fresco breakfast.

We decided on one of their namesake noshes and broke four bones on a buttermilk cream cheese scone ($3.75):

This lactose lump was fine, with a tender crumb and crusty cover while both the breakfast burrito ($8.99):

... and the breakfast sandwich ($8.99):

... were freed from the yolks of standard scrams with white-only ‘semblies, which were okay, but didn’t inspire us to carry our hods back for lunch with laptop latte lurkers.

We caught “Asian Fever” ($10.00):

... at Baroo where this malady was a medley of ‘mati rice with lemongrass and coconut foam. A crisp shrimp chip contrasted with a vide loca’ed egg that rested on sake lees with bits of lime and cherry tomatoes.

The infectious, food bourne flavors and textures proved to be a pleasing petri plate along with fried rice ($11.00):

... with pineapple fermented kimchi. Purple potato chips provided crunch to this basmati-bedded buckwheat and quinoa collection.

We savored with sous vide egg-sauced, bacon-boosted, gremolata grazing with a “Gim” ($12.00):

... which waved with seaweed, Job’s tears, kamut and farro with mixed berries tofu, wasabi, daikon, lime, jalapeño and a crunchy nori chip washed down with fermented fluids.

Tepache ($3.00) was a cheery cherry chug and the lemon verbena yuzu kombucha ($3.00).

Chef Kwang Uh’s:

... Baroo bowled us over with finessed flavorful flourishes in this striped down strip mall that will have us bim bam bop back for more.

Macaron margined frozen fillings at Wanderlust Creamery:

... were travel-inspired cream cases ($6.00) melded mix and match meltables.

We went with a pretzel and rugbraou:

...with caramelized rye crumbs twisted with pulverized pretzel placed in a chocolate macaron sandwich as well as a “smoky road” :

...with hickory almonds, marshmallow and smoked sea salt in a vanilla macaron.

Our varied voyages were staycation placation.

We will have to wander back to review more of their icy itinerary.
