Met some friends for brunch on a hot, balmy morning in Silver Lake. Is it always this humid this time of year? I guess not since the place only boasted fans indoors and their outside patio is only covered. There was barely a breeze but that didn't deter us from having a fantastic time at brunch.
We ordered a few dishes and shared. We had the appetizer sampler which consisted of sweet corn tamales, shrimp cakes, fried plantains, sopas, and ceviche. We also had shrimp pizza which was really good and the shrimp tasted fresh. The chicken mole is delicious and was served with black beans and rice. My favorite dish had to be the jerk chicken omelette which also had pork in it and was served with beans and rice. The paella was tasty but I really wanted some of the crunchy rice that you only get at the bottom of the paella pan. It was good but it was missing that crunch. For dessert we had a mango tres leches cake and French toast served with banana infused maple syrup. We were stuffed to the brim with food, conversation, and memories.

This place is a shack, literally. Entrance is a bit discrete, and I would have no clue how to find this place had someone not literally walked me to the door. Parking sucks, since it's either valet or street. Came during Cinco De Mayo for a Saturday Happy Hour that lasts till 7. Small selection of Happy Hour food on the menu. Nothing bad to say about this place, but there is nothing too memorable either.
-=-Sangria-=- I wasn't a fan of this at first, but I guess after the 6th pitcher, everything starts tasting good. I'd get it again.
-=-Jerk Chicken Pizza-=- For Happy Hour prices, I didn't think that the price of this solo sized pizza was worth it, but atleast it tasted good. Think of this as a BBQ Chicken pizza with BBQ sauce instead of tomato. That's exactly what this was. Good kick on the spice too.
-=-Calamari-=- It was good. A bit oily, but it's fried so I ain't complaining. It's cut thick and is good staple food to go down with your drinks.
-=-Goat Quesadilla-=- Not a fan. It was unique, yes, but I'm just not a fan of the intense goat cheese flavor from this.

Great Caribbean restaurant in Silverlake that I got to try for brunch with some other gogobotters.
The first thing that stood out to me was the atmosphere. The host and servers were friendly and I really liked the art and color throughout the restaurant.
We all shared a number of different options off the brunch menu that ranged from paella, jerk chicken and shrimp pizza to french toast with a banana syrup. Out of everything I tried I would say that the chicken with mole sauce and the paella would be my two recommendations. Great spot to check out if you're in the area.

This is a fun and colorful restaurant that has some tasty dishes. The jerk chicken on an omelette was my favorite, but the mole chicken was also good. Both come with a side of rice and beans. The paella and shrimp pizza are also decent dishes here. They have French toast for dessert too, but I liked the dulce de leche cake more. Service here is very good.

A hidden gem on a very lackluster stretch of Virgil St. This place looks like a little beach shack in the carribean, and that's exactly what you get inside. Hot, spicy jerk chicken, fried plantains and tasty ceviche. Wash it all down with their delicious house-made sangria and when you leave you'll be surprised to find yourself on that shabby eastside street corner once again.

Flavor-bombs all up in this place. Their sangria is awesome. Their jerk chicken is effin fantastic. And their ceviche is so fresh and so clean.
The patio atmosphere makes for a fun group dinner spot. Also, try out their jungle brunches!

Really good Caribbean food in a very almost-kitsch Caribbean setting. They also have a long and very cheap happy hour every day, which is especially awesome because the restaurant is so laid back -- it's not a typical happy hour bar scene by any means. The goat cheese and guava quesadillas are amazing, and the mojitos ($3 at happy hour!) are too -- especially for the price!
