oh no. :(
oh hell no. *shakes head*
since we didn't pay for parking, the decision to leave was made easier so i texted my friends to bid them adieu and off we went to the coffee table in silverlake.
holy hell i was hungry by then! the pavement pounding, sweat wiping, horror on my face, and sadness in my heart only meant that i HAD to have a burger. you might not know this, but put a little burger in your heart and it does wonders for your soul. so i did. i ordered a tuna burger and when i was offered cheese for it, i actually had to think about it...hmm...ahi tuna and cheese...NO. it was rather delicious just the way it is! even though the buns were nothing special, i enjoyed the spicy seasoning on my medium rare tuna hunk. the side of pineapple slaw was also refreshingly different just like mango salsa is on a chip.
my friend also needed a burger pick me up and got the los feliz beef burger with a side of mashies. nothing special, but still tasty.
but my thick ole tuna steak masquerading as a burger trumps it all. it was thick, juicy, and tender. i guess i still got my fill of "meat" after all.
the meal ended on a sweet note. two mini cupcakes (red velvet and banana walnut) were consumed. the frosting was spot on with its cream cheese frosting, but the mini cupcakes were dry....another reason not to order a mini i guess.
my sweet tooth DID NOT stop there. we also shared a vanilla creme brulee cheesecake. HEAVENLY. MOUTH WATERING. MUFFIN TOP INDUCING. creamy, dreamy, i want you again. please?
so there you have it. although we did not participate in the l.a. street food fest (which i heard was a nightmare of lines, inside and out) we still managed to have a grand ole belly loving time at the coffee table. like everything in life, there's always a silver lining (not to go all fortune cookie on your butts) but yes, everything was all good after all, if not better.
