Barrel & Ashes

GO NOW.

I don’t need to say much about the newly opened Barrel & Ashes besides that, because once you’re there and eating the Cheesy Baked Shells, or the Pulled Pork Poppyseed Sandwich, you will be thanking me.

The epitome of gourmet comfort food, revamped for a hipster Los Angeles. My friend ordered a diet coke and tried to return it because it came in a brown bottle labeled ‘Mexi Diet Cola Light’ (see below). I thought the vintage glass coke bottles were as hipster as you can get, but once again, Studio City has proved me wrong.

There is literally nothing on the menu that you could order and not like. I highly recommend the ‘Hoe Cake’- the salty, sweet, buttery, and crunchy outside is so good, that time actually slows down around you.

Everything is meant to be shared! I love tapas style dining, because who doesn’t like trying a  little bit of everything? Under the “Snacks” section of the menu you can try ‘The Best Damn Chick’n Sandwich Ya Ever Had‘- and they aren’t lying about that. I wish all my snacks could be sandwiches.

TIP:
My favorite part of the menu is the Bartenders Choice. You can tell the bartender what type of alcohol you like, what flavors, or any suggestions and they will mix you up a surprise.

I already have a date set to return this week. Don’t forget to check out the Frito Pie, which is made inside of the a Frito bag…
Head over to Colfax and Ventura to check out a comfort food journey, from hillbilly to hipster.
