I discovered one of the most delicious lunch spots in Los Angeles- Son of a Gun. Not only does their food look very pretty- it tastes damn good too.
There’s a range of surf and turf options, which suited everyone’s taste at the table. My sister Sammy opted for the grapefruit and avocado salad, which was a real surprise as I thought the two flavours wouldn’t mix. Now I definitely want to recreate this recipe at home. I love that oysters are in season here so naturally I have been ordering them by the dozen as often as I can, whenever I can. Sammy’s boyfriend had the fried chicken sandwich. which was monster sized. We discussed how to tackle it and ultimately realised you just had to go for it, eyes closed, and leave your dignity behind. Mum was sensible and had a large salad with a tapas portion of prawn toast. To be honest when I read the words ‘prawn toast’ on the menu I just overlooked it, but oh my goodness- that was the most delicious thing on the menu. This is a MUST order if you go. I also ordered a tapas portion of Lobster Roll, which was delicious but not half as flavourful as the prawn toast. For dessert I ordered lime sorbet with graham cracker crust and baked meringue. It was almost too pretty to eat…almost. After lunch we went to get our hair blown for a launch that I’ll tell you all about next post.
