The Kitchen (Silver Lake)

By in 05: Silver Lake + Echo Park

When we went to this neighborhood restaurant at Silver Lake, the entire street corner was blocked off with filming crew and actors and equipments. A large crane was moving up and down the entire time outside, it got so close sometimes that I kept expecting it to crash thru the windows.

Soy Grilled Flank Steak with Wasabi Mashed Potato, VERY good! Juicy, tender and tasty. The wasabi mashed is very…heavily wasabi-ed, gotta eat carefully. ^^b Belgian Beef Stew, good but not special.

DSC09850.jpgThe cornbread (each person get one) are incredible! Joan said she has been here before and the burger and seafood stew weren’t so good. A look at their specials and menu tells me that they’re better at steak. Good comfort food, but sadly no alcohol. The cork fees (even for beer) is $3.

    haha~ it’s very typical ‘Californian’ to do that, fusion everything, especially American with Japanese/Thai, etc….especially it’s in Silver Lake, the supposedly hipster/artsy neighborhood this kind of vibe… ^^:; I remember watching this super old episode of Japanese iron chef, one challenger chef (Japanese)’s style is “Californian” (he owned this Celebrity hang out yuppie restaurant in Tokyo somewhere) and his courses are all fusion this and that…so strange to see that’s celebrated as a genre of cooking…^^;;

    seems like it’s quite a lot of trouble to acquire liquor license in certain LA neighborhood. There’s a bar right next to this restaurant, so I figure maybe that’s why they didn’t get the license (or couldn’t, as the bar would protest!?)
