Eating by Proxy

in brunch, fruit, restaurant

It’s my blog’s birthday tomorrow, and originally I had big plans.

KTCHN DTLA is kind of a “Secret Brunch Club” housed in The Gorbals space on weekends. I made reservations weeks ago but was unable to keep them because of this audition, so John and Sam went for us.

Reporting Live from Downtown: Portions are humongous and delicious!

Along with the first two entrees on the ever-changing menu, they also ordered the Brie Grits Starter with Berry Compote – topped with apple julienne and bourbon cherry granola.

I asked how it compared to our last brunch together (at Lazy Ox Canteen) – they said the service was definitely better, and if they HAD to make a decision, probably the food too. John called his dish the most “extraordinary pork belly of all time.”

*Sigh*

Although none of that pork belly got in MY belly, I still filled up this morning on some lovely Farmer’s Market eats during a quick walk into Larchmont.

Tons of fruit. Probably 2 big bowls worth!

Pickled veggies too…

The cherries right now are most excellent. (Though red are sweeter.)

I tried pretty much every stone fruit out there, and these two were definitely the best. So that’s what came home with me!
