Today was my pal Curly Fries' last day at work. So begins her maternity leave -- her baby is coming very soon! It seems I keep saying good-bye to my bridesmaids! Boo! Here we are, pre-Curly Fries' pregnancy....
Tiara Cafe, a whimsical refuge from the hustle and bustle of downtown. At the corner of 9th and Main, Tiara Cafe is the brainchild of the marvelously creative Fred Eric, who brought Los Angelenos the famed 24-hour hipster diner Fred 62. Tiara provides much needed delicious food to the underfed waifs populating the Fashion District. In addition to serving breakfast and lunch in the restaurant, Tiara also has a great array of carry-out options for those on the go.
medianoche presswich, which, aside from duck, features monterey jack cheese, pickles, sweet mustard with an oh-so-slight kick, and a small green salad. There's a reason that I almost always get this sandwich. First, grill marks always make everything better. Second, I love duck, and it's not often that you can eat good duck for lunch at a reasonable price ($9.75). Thank you, Tiara!
medianoche, T-West, Cheeks, Pescado, and Talksa ordered the cheeseburger, which is quite good at Tiara -- big, juicy, and accompanied by your choice of fries or onion rings, as well as a small green salad. Fred Eric is no stranger to comfort food, which is done just as well as the more innovative stuff on his menu, such as freshwiches (sandwiches wrapped in rice paper). I snapped a sort of faraway pic of Captain Amazing's meal (it's peeping out from behind some soup). I think it was the Thai Cobb freshwich. (My personal fave is the grilled steak freshwich -- yummilicious!)
