Animal Restaurant

Finding good restaurants is a ...

Finding good restaurants is a big hobby of mine and I always ask people their favorite restaurants in LA. In last few weeks, three people randomly recommended me about Animal and I thought I got to check it out. The restaurant opens at 6 p.m. nightly and we made a reserva...moretion at 6 p.m. on Sunday. We got there early to find a free street parking (they don't have restaurant parking but do have a valet) and walked around the neighborhood. The neighborhood made me a bit uncomfortable and out of place (there were many street kids hanging out and some homeless guys). The restaurant was hard to find since the restaurant doesn't have any sign; it's just all black in the front. The restaurant is very simple but nice and very small; so reservation is a must. Since this place is a tapas style restaurant, Including desserts, two of us ordered 7 dishes and here is the order of my favorites: 1. pig ear, chili, lime, fried egg This was our favorite of the night! All my friends recommended pig ear and I'm glad that we tried it. I think what makes this dish so delicious is the sauce; the combination between the spiciness of chili and lime was amazing. 2. flat iron, sunchoke hash, truffle parmesan fondue This was the most expensive dish ($28) on their menu but it's so worth it! The steak was so soft and I loved it. This is more like entree size than appetizer. 3. chicken liver toast I heard that foie gras dishes were their signature dishes and I wish I tried them before the foie gras ban. Not as good as foie gras, but this still tasted good. 4. marrow bone, chimichurri, caramelized onions This was my first time eating bone marrow and it wasn't my favorite. Chimichurri was good though. 5. melted petit basque, chorizo, grilled bread I love cheese so I had to try this dish. It was good but not as creative dish as others; nothing was particularly special. 6. huckleberry pavlova, lemon verbena ice cream, toasted meringue It wasn't bad but nothing was special. 7. bacon chocolate crunch bar, s&p ice cream I've tired bacon chocolate at other restaurants before and I normally like it but this one was not good. It was too salty. They sprinkled lots of salts on the plate but bacon already has the saltiness so the extra salts are unnecessary. Also, I thought wine list was over-priced. The cheapest glass of wine was $11 and tasted like $5 bottle of wine from grocery store. Next time, I might bring my own bottle of wine and just pay $20 corkage fee. Overall, it was a good restaurant and I will definitely come back to try other dishes. view less

Five Guys Burgers & Fries
jenniefang rated
There are a few things I just ...

There are a few things I just really love in a restaurant, and Five Guys seems to suit my taste in a lot of ways. First of all, you can see the kitchen perfectly and the (awesome) health inspection reports are clearly displayed. This makes me feel so much more comfortable ...moreeating the food...when I know exactly how it has been handled. Second, the service is extremely reliable. Yes I know it is only counter service, but I've never once had anyone be rude or impatient with me here...even when I'm constantly changing my mind about the toppings I want on my little cheeseburger. Third, I love that you pick your toppings exactly, that way there are no surprises. Sure, in fancy sit-down restaurants I'll let the chef do his/her magic on my place. When I'm tired as hell or hungover and looking for a greasy fix, I want to know exactly what's going in my food. Fourth, and I know I may be alone on this, I like that you order your burger separate from the fries. I am not a big fries fan, and it seems like every burger has obligatory fries sitting right beside it. I think it's nice to be able to order them separately, or in my case, not usually order them at all. The only reason this place doesn't reach 5 stars in my book is the amount of grease. It may be a little over the top for some people. Although satisfying, I do worry about the massive harm I'm causing to my arteries before taking that first, delicious bite view less

The Village Idiot
Matthew R. rated

I love this place. We go here at least once every two weeks or so and try our best to get one of the large booths by the front windows. Great place to have one of the best Bloody Mary's in town on a warm Saturday afternoon. I love the menu - it's not huge, but what they do o...moreffer is usually fantastic. I dream of their mussels with bread sops, the brussel sprouts with bacon would make a few vegetarians go back to the dark side and the savory pies take me back to London. They also feature a great beer menu plus all sorts of interesting cocktails. My favorite drink is the Ginger Top - a glorious amber beer topped with ginger beer. I had my 40th birthday party here a few weeks ago in the back room and the chef, managers and staff went above and beyond in terms of helping me plan and prep. It was the best bang for our buck and our guests had a fabulous time. In a nutshell: great food, great staff and never a negative experience.view less
