Earl’s Gourmet Grub (Mar Vista)

By in 11: West LA, Favorite Food Entries

Happy New Year! Now that the holiday’s over, we can finally catch up with our old entries.

When I enjoyed a place, I tend to say “I can’t wait to go back to try the other stuffs on the menu,” I do mean them even though I might not blog it again. I went back to Mar Vista’s gourmet sandwich joint Earl’s Gourmet Grub numerous times since then and it just gets better. I tried their lunch menu (hot sandwich) and I’ve found that one STAR item that you’d go back for again and again.

Earl's Gourmet Grub

This is it, the Choppy Joe! Rice-Cooker Ginger Chicken, Bean Sprouts, Celery, Peanut & Black Strap Molasses Gravy, Wun Tun Chips on Sesame Burger Bun $9.25  This is simply DELICIOUS! The bean sprout and peanut sauce gave an asian flavor that taste unpredictable with the brioche-ish burger bun. The whole plate is well balanced and interesting, it’s amazing!

HEARTICHOKE: Marinated Artichoke, Hearts of Palm-Pickled Red Onion Hash, Artichoke-Jalapeno Spread, Chevre, Mache on Pain de Mie $8.7  One of the vegetarian choice on the menu. I’m not too crazy about it but it’s a good light, veggie sandwich for those who feel like it.

PIG-N-FIG: Prosciutto di Parma, Verde Capra Blue Cheese, Fig Hash, Arugula, Aioli on 3 Season Bread $9.25  A bold flavor one obviously that is so satisfying.

They also have various daily specials, baked goods, and even Sunday omelette Jazz brunch (with live Jazz band)!  It’s such a great neighborhood gem.

    It seems some restaurants, Earls for those who are familiar with this one, seem to make some amazing side orders of cooked vegetables that they serve with their meals.

    They are sweet, very juicy, with a touch of butter. Vegetables they serve include carrots, asparagus, and beets. Beets are one thing I don’t eat….unless of course it is at this restaurant.

    Would anyone have a recipe on how to sautee vegetables to get that gourmet taste.
