Auntie Em's Kitchen
4616 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041
I went to Auntie Em's Kitchen expecting the worst after reading some negative reviews about its food and service (on another website). I went anyway (Tuesday noontime) since it's close to home, just to check it out. I was very pleasantly surprised. The place is funky and eclectic, very casual atmosphere. They offer the freshest and tastiest pasta salads I've ever had; they even allowed me to pick and choose what's not on the menu (but on their order-to-go glass shelf). I heard of their legendary cupcakes - so of course, I have to have some of those - and true enough, they are to die for! That Red Velvet cupckae is out of this world! I just had to order to go the other cupcakes (coconut, carrot, chocolate). The servers were very helpful and attentive. Overall, a very positive dining experience. I heard it gets very crowded there on weekends, but weekdays should be no problem.
