Lou (Melrose)

By in 07: Mid-Wilshire

I would never ever expect a nice wine bar at a mini-mall next to a Laundromat!
The wallpaper is gorgeous.

The view to the crappy mini-mall is completely block by this floor-to-ceiling curtain that is almost kitschy with its bold floral graphic. I love it despite it seems questionable at first. The hot pink and black and white is the running color theme inside. The curtain made it feel like an exclusive club. 😀
Pig Candy is bacon with brown sugar. ^^;; They have a good selection of wine.DSC09748.jpgDSC09750.jpg
Farmstead Cheese Plank 12.50 (Cowgirl Red hawk, Matos Dairy St. Jorge, Roogue River Smokey Blue, Cypress Grove Purple Haze, Ewe F-O. I like the stinky Blue cheese most. The Pecan Tart is so-so…a bit soggy.

    haha, yeah I can see how this floral print is questionable at first! so bold! ^^;
    but I guess it sorta grows on ya.

    is pig candy supposed to be dessert, or food?

    The fluorescent lighting is from the mall?? Kinda white-bright for a bar! ^^;;;

    I notice you are drinking wine more often nowadays…even visit wine bars!!

    The fluorescent light is the outside. At first glance seeing just that bold pattern curtain and fluoresent light, I can’t help being skeptical. Though Vero been there before and promised that it’s good. Then once you go into inside it’s all modern and got cool (and causal) vibe.

    Pig candy is meant to be food, snack for the wine? Reminds me of those Taiwanese dry meat.

    Many food taste better with wine ma..hehe..
