DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS
First stop was Horse Thief BBQ for a pulled pork sandwich and sweet tea. Their BBQ is apple cider vinegar-based, which gives it a sugary tang. Plus pickles and onion?

Next was Eggslut for their eponymous dish, a coddled egg over potato puree. I am in no way exaggerating when I say it was heaven in a boiled jam jar.
DON'T MOVE MY CHEESE

It was the menu at DTLA Cheese that drew us in - I saw "cheesy potatoes" and knew we had to stop. While we were too full for the potatoes, we did peruse the expansive case with the intention of trying a few and finding just the right dairy product to take home.
But our cheese expert Marnie asked us a couple questions and BAM - we found the perfect cheese on the first try, the soft and savory L'Amuse Brabender Goat Gouda. We only got a sliver, so no doubt we will be making a return trip very soon.
I SCREAM YOU SCREAM
Last on our hit list was McConnell's for a little treat - well, a big treat. A three scoop sampler bowl to be exact! We tried churros con leche, strawberry, and olive oil with almonds.
I think we're ready for another round, wouldn't you say?
