This past Sunday was just one of those afternoons where I wanted simple, good eats; taking a cue from the double-blog-rave-within-24-hours from Dylan of Eat Drink n Be Merry and Pat of Eating L.A., I hauled myself to Sunset Junction to pay a visit to Ricky's Fish Tacos cart.
Two of these at a very reasonable $2.50 each made for an absolutely satisfying brunch on the corner of Sunset & Hyperion; it's right across from Intelligentsia, but my sweet jaws took me and my brunch companion to LA Mill -- where we followed up with an equally simple-yet-divine strawberry (and mango) shortcake and their signature blanco y negro, a chilly, intense layered parfait of coffee granita and vanilla bean ice cream -- reminds me of a chillier version of the iced French-style coffee that Vietnamese eateries serve. Purely delightful for a warm August day.
Per Pat (whose blogpost is taped to the front of his cart!), Ricky's fish tacos cart will be across from Intelligentsia Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. (look for a rainbow-colored umbrella), though he hinted that he may be moving locations within the neighborhood in the next few weeks.
