Sqirl, Silver Lake, los Angeles - sorrel pesto rice bowl

I didn’t go for the jam…

(because I don’t love sweet, and I don’t even really eat toast of any kind.) But the food out of the kitchen…

Brown Rice Bowl

with sorrel pesto (no nuts), preserved Meyer lemon, poached egg, hot sauce, radish, dill, and feta cheese [$7].

This is exactly the kind of food I love to eat at almost every meal. Bowl food. Spoon Food. Essentially, this is a “market-driven” bibimbap.

I am developing this idea that “bibimbap” could change the way the world eats. Foundation of whole grains. Rainbow of fermented and fresh vegetables. Sauce. And most importantly, topped with an egg.

It’s healthy, happy fucking perfection.

Sqirl “Outdoor Dining”

setup outside, bent over old wooden crates, from somewhat flimsy chairs on uneven tile. awkward. a little uncomfortable. super charming.
