Before I went to Grub I was at the beach where I got my very first Bee sting! (I’m excited because I, somehow, managed to go 30 years without having one. Btw, I’m not allergic! Good to know.)

 

I was expecting to swell and puff up and be in pain (I did step on it, afterall), but I’m pretty sure the food at Grub has healing powers because not only did I not feel any pain on my foot/sting-spot, but I also got fed something so delicious I decided to write about it.

 

What got ordered:

-homemade ginger-ale (the most perfect balance of ginger and soda ever. Not too sweet and not too puckery.)

-Hot Chick’s Mac – Chicken that is marinated in wing-sauce and then mixed in with delicious mac and cheese, red onion, gorgonzola with Panko bread crumbs on top. The texture of the cheese was super interesting and the chicken was the right amount of hot that just made you warm from the inside and fill your heart with good vibes.

-Apple, “crack” bacon” quesadilla – Spinach tortilla filled with thin slices of apples, soft bacon and cheese, all folded up and grilled to perfection (so the quesadilla was crispy but everything inside was softer). I thought this was a weird concept until I tasted it and (again- the textures!) were perfect.

-Tomato soup – my comfort food is grilled cheese and tomato soup. When we paired this with the quesadilla and soup– it was even more mind-blowing. The soup was “lick-the-bowl” good. Not served overly-hot and had bits of cheese in it for added enjoyment.

-Cookies! (they are 1$ each. Chocolate chip cookies rolled in potato chips. We had to order them to go because we had Book of Mormon tickets– but ate them after the show. A great sweet/salty mix that is worth having. 🙂

 

Overall- it was one of the best meals I’ve had in LA (and that’s saying a lot).  I’m also certain that the mac and cheese has healing powers.
