Apparently Faith & Flower and Bestia are two obligatory places to go to in DTLA if you're a foodie so naturally Crystal and I were excited for our Sunday brunch. Before we even get to the food, can I just say how gorgeous this restaurant is?! A+ in ambiance from the decor to the cute green goblets, everything was on point. Right when you walk through the doors, you feel transplanted to a Great Gatsby-esque establishment. Since Crystal was dd, I ordered the infamous English Milk Punch and it was just as great as everyone raved about on Yelp. We mixed it up and ordered a couple things off their sweet and savory brunch menu: malted waffles, deviled jidori eggs, pizza, cavatelli, and dessert. Unfortunately, their menus change so I don't know what the dishes we ordered are anymore...but fortunately, their menus change so you can keep coming back for more! Overall, I'd love to come back for dinner and experience the lovely ambiance at night and order that oxtail agnolotti everyone keeps talking about.
The waiter recommended a type of sangria, and the best part was that it came with 1 single huge block of ice. As for the drink, it was kind of lemon-y and had whiskey as well. I forgot what else it had, and I forgot the name of the drink. LOL but here's a picture you can point to if you ever visit the restaurant and want to try the drink.
Vencci had ordered this waffle with pears, topped with cream. Waffle was good. It tasted like waffle. Didn't have the cream for obvious reasons. Could have done without the pears.
For anyone who enjoys deviled eggs, have you ever had Deviled Jidori Eggs?? What are they?? They're basically deviled eggs topped with kimchi and sprinkled with black sesame. They're pretty unique and really delicious. Would definitely eat again.
Next on the menu were these fancy named tempura fish. They were basically fish n chips topped with arugula. One of my favorite dishes here.
Next, we ate larvae. JK, but tell me this shit doesn't look like larvae? It's just pasta.. very good pasta.
Next, was grilled trout with mixed veggies. Pretty sure this shit was salmon. Looked like salmon and tasted like salmon. Idk, tell me if I'm trippin out.
And lastly, pizza. Pretty self explanatory, nothing special - just pizza.
For dessert, we had flan and ice cream and flower leaves and all these other toppings that I would never learn to appreciate.
