gr/eats on Sawtelle Blvd {restaurant} – One Time…

gr/eats, sawtelle - tofu balls

So much has changed since May 17, 2006, which was the one and only time I ate at gr/eats

At one time, gr/eats, along with every other restaurant on that “Little Osaka” stretch of Sawtelle Blvd between Santa Monica and Olympic Boulevards, was a project of mine. At one time, I was a single, Westside-til-I-Die girl who hated chihuahuas. At one time, I took food photos with a 3 megapixel point-and-shoot.

With flash.

Look at me now.

If I still lived on the Westside, I’d probably eat at gr/eats regularly. Not frequently, because it hurts my heritage to pay for food that I can make at home, but regularly, just because the tofu balls seem too complicated for me to attempt.

Also? At one time, I would have made at least three jokes about “balls” within the first two paragraphs.
