Thought I’d post a couple August reports right before the end of the month, and holy cow it’s September already …
Midoh - Sawtelle
Really enjoyed the meal. Everything was well-prepared, big portions, comforting stuff, what’s not to like? Decent amount of seating on their outdoor balcony too, so it felt safe out there. Inside the tables were spaced far apart, probably the most space between tables I’ve seen in these pandemic re-opening times.
1st pic - Hamburg Curry, Udon Carbonara. 2nd pic - tonkatsu (both fillet and loin) and fried shrimp.
We ordered some stuff to go - the chicken at both medium and mild and also the fish at plain/non-spicy. This was my first time trying Hotville, and I thought it was great. Even after a 20 minute drive, everything managed to stay crispy and juicy. Special shout-out to the staff - I called in my order, and it was perhaps the best phone experience I’ve ever had with a restaurant. The lady I spoke with was just so warm and relaxed!
Southern Girl Desserts
Just across the parking lot from Hotville. Didn’t take pics, but everything we tried here was yummy! Including the Sweet Potato cupcake @TheCookie recommended on other threads and their pound cake, which has a nice chewy crust to complement the moist inside.
