There are certain places Iâ€™ll make the trip to get to.
Downtown and Silverlake/Los Feliz are such places. So much personality! Just enough rough edges. The complete opposite of a suburban strip mall in the Valley. Personally, it’s exciting to know I might be peed on while waiting in line to eat!
I think a new eateries and bars pop up in Silverlake every day. Like a weed. And each one is cuter than the next.
Barbrix is a wine bar next to an auto junkyard. VERY Silverlake. Like a flower in a dung heap.
Itâ€™s got the look of a fancy Hollywood restaurant but, like everything on this side of town, itâ€™s super casual. Our bartender was dressed in a t-shirt and was mildly fat! Yes!
The menu at Barbrix is all small plates. We got a few glasses of delicious wine and chose three items, all of which appeared to have shrunken in the wash!
They were literally a few bites each, and shared between two people, this wasnâ€™t much to eat. But it looked and tasted fantastic. The wild boar sausage was incredible!! Donâ€™t be frightened by boar! (especially wild boar) What has it ever done to you??
The roasted veggies (I believe they called it the Farmers Plate – pictured at the top) was tasty. And covered in olive oil. If you look closely, you’ll spot the world’s smallest baby carrot. If vegetables could become anorexic, than I believe this little guy definitely needs some counseling.
We got some miscellaneous crap on toast. We enjoyed it, whatever the hell it was. Enjoy the dark and moody pic!
Sorry, I decided not to post the pic, it’s just really awful. You’re welcome.
I won’t write what happened next. Let’s just say there was a woman singing at a piano (whether she actually was a woman is still under debate) and a random chocolate fountain!
