This coming Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6 to 9 p.m., the Central Hollywood Coalition presents the seventh annual Hollywood food festival Sunset & Dine. Ticket holders can enjoy food, wine and beer from more than 20 restaurants located near the famed intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street.
Taking a preview foodie crawl a couple weeks ago, I discovered some favorite dishes at the following destinations:
Wood & Vine Chef Rick Sipovic’s Scottish Eggs are delicious with pickled onion, beer mustard and cornishons. They go well with a craft beer or cocktail. Dining at the restaurant his pork shank with a tequila and honey glaze is superb.
Banh Oui makes the best Sticky Tofu Bites. “Banh Oui” translates to “Bread Yes.” It is a marriage of two languages, Vietnamese and French. They make a pork belly Bahn oui, spicy tofu Bahn oui, chicken Katsu and chicken meatball, a steak and a mushroom Bahn oui. Their garlic cilantro fries are incredible.
Duidough Café & Cookie Lab makes cookies that are so good, The Pantages Theatre hires them to make hundreds to sell to theatre patrons before and at intermission. Besides the best cookies, they also make savory burgers, sandwiches, salads. Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch cafe.
