The line outside Sqirl on a Sunday morning reminds me of that episode of Portlandia where they wait in line for brunch for 3 hours. BUT it’s worth the wait. It gives you the right to sit outside and enjoy the people watching. Order their coffee – it is heavenly – I had the Al Pacino which is an Almond Milk Iced Cap. YUM!
I ALWAYS order the Kokuho Rose Brown Rice Bowl: Sorrel Pesto (nut free), Preserved Meyer Lemon, Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce, Black Radish, French Sheep Feta, Poached Egg. To. Die. For. I could eat this everyday for the rest of my life. The Pesto Rice is out of this world, the lemon brings out the freshness of the entire dish, the egg – I mean I can put an egg on a pile of rocks and I’d think it’s delicious but once you pop the yolk open and mix it all together it’s like all is right in the world. Run, don’t walk to Sqirl if you haven’t already.
This little block on Virgil in East Hollywood is really up and coming. There are a few cute little boutiques and vintage shops to pop into as well as Twig & Twine, a lovely little flower and gift shop.
