what she didn't tell you...


So I posted below, about a foodie friends favorite LA spots. Chad and I try to do date nights on Thursdays and so last night we thought we'd try the Oinkster in Eagle Rock. Sounds healthy huh! :) Sue's comment of best fries ever? really?? We were too curious and had to give it a try. Also I love Eagle Rock, I can get my Venice fix and I don't have to go far at all! 

Ok, so what she didn't tell you was... 
everything at this place is amazing!! We went thinking we'd grab a burger and try these rockin fries, and were quite pleasently surprised to eat some of the yummiest burgers and pastrami sandwiches we've ever had! She's totally right, the fries are pretty amazing, but I had to add the food is too!! Chad ordered the "Royal" a burger with grueyre cheese, caramelized onions, chili. He ate the whole thing. I ordered the "oinkster" pastrami which was THE BEST PASTRAMI sandwich I've ever had:) It's quite large too, I'm eating the other half as I type...

Also, the gal that rung us up told us about happy hour: Monday-Friday 3-6 p.m. they have half price burgers and fries, with the purchase of a drink!! oh, and inteligensia iced tea is an option :)

Some fun info on the owner and executive chef 
(also E. Chef of MAX and Senor Fred in my neck of the woods, this guy's legit :)

It's a must try!! Enjoy!

Wow, what a sandwich...and something to look for when I'm back out in that neck of the woods! Yay, happy hour bonus!

I've been wondering how you've been lately. I hope you're feeling great and that all is going well with your wee one on the inside.

So glad you liked the whole place! Not too shabby right? A good stop for lunch after a Dr. F checkup. So were the fries so good or were they so good? p.s. My sister-in-law got me a Carly Jean "Thankful" candle as part of my "Memories of Cali" Christmas present, I burn it and think of you my friend:)
