There is more to brunch than mimosas, omelets and french toast. Let’s begin by slamming a few common misconceptions about this awkwardly-timed meal that squeezes itself somewhere between 10 am and 2 pm.

First off, brunch is not just for the lazy folks who simply cannot get themselves out of bed on Sunday mornings, or the housewives of Beverly Hills who have nothing better to do after dropping their kids off at soccer practice.

Second, the nature of the meal does not allow it to be rushed the way breakfast is. Instead, there is a whole religion that comes with brunching that only a few understand and worship. Brunch is to be enjoyed by everyone: businessmen, highschoolers, families. It is supposed to be time-consuming, helping to take your mind off work and the chaos of reality. It should not only revolve around the food, but also the setting, company and conversations.

Living in an urban hub like Los Angeles means you will never run out of brunch places to try. But more importantly, with beaches and summer-weather all year round, Angelenos are blessed with beautiful outdoor restaurants and salty air, a rare ambience in other cities. This week, I ventured down to The Tasting Kitchen on Abbot Kinney, an up-and-coming food mecca in Venice Beach, just twenty minutes west of campus.

Ambience: Abbot Kinney is the West Coast’s version of New York’s SoHo and Boston’s Newbury Street. Located in Venice Beach, it draws customers from near and far with cute stores and chic restaurants.

With beautiful wooden high tables and stools in one area, smaller table-for-two’s in another and a second floor that boasts a huge bookshelf, it is the interior design that really sets The Tasting Kitchen apart from its competitors. Though not particularly fancy, it resembles a bachelor pad, homey and rustic, adding a sense of ease and peace.

Food: The brunch menu is short but varied, with both savories and sweets.

I started my meal with biscuit and jam ($5). The biscuit itself was baked perfectly — not too dense, not too hollow. What really made this item stand out though, was the blackberry jam. Its thick, pulpy texture combined with its fresh and sweet flavor were perfect compliments to the saltiness of the creamy butter. When combined with the biscuit, it made for one interesting bite.

For my main dish, I decided to go big and get the steak and eggs ($25), a Tasting Kitchen classic. Their twist on this traditional brunch item made me swoon. The steak was covered in a buttery-glaze that accented the rosemary and spice dressing. I admit this leans more towards lunch, perhaps even dinner, because of how heavy it is, but it is the perfect cure to a hangry (that’s hungry and angry combined) morning. The eggs save it from becoming a dish on a six-course dinner, giving the item a more casual, morning feel.

Everything else on the menu was standard breakfast-lunch food, such as scrambled eggs ($9) and grilled cheese ($11), but you won’t find any diner classics here. The Tasting Kitchen tries to add a little oomph into all their dishes, like adding fried oyster to their omelet selection, or by giving their menu items ambiguous names (take “bacon maple bar,” for example) to make the customers curious.

Uracha’s Tip: The Tasting Kitchen definitely appeals to an older crowd. Many of the customers I sat with were in their mid-twenties and thirties. This shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable dining here; just a little FYI in case you are looking for a more youthful scene.

One major downside is that the wait can get really long. Make sure you call ahead or make your reservation in person before getting distracted by the beauty of Abbot Kinney. Because of the restaurant’s convenient location, you can always take a stroll down the block while you’re waiting to be seated.

Places To Eat In Los Angeles: The Tasting Kitchen, Abbot Kinney

Okay, so while Toast is now down as my favourite lunch spot in Los Angeles, I have recently discovered my absoute favourite brunch spot in LA in the form of The Tasting Kitchen at the end of Venice’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Practically every website that lists the best places to eat brunch in Los Angeles lists The Tasting Kitchen, and from the moment you step inside and see the decor, and the waiting staff carrying everyone delicious looking and smelling orders to their tables, pretty quickly you understand why.





The bar is a big feature in the restaurant and they have so many cocktails and mixes you won’t find anywhere else. While The Tasting Kitchen is open all day, and for evening service, I could tell lots of people went there for the cocktails to accompany their brunch. I think if anyone ever asks me for the best place to go for a liquid breakfast in LA, I’ll be sending them to Abbot Kinney Boulevard for a tipple!


I went for what, after looking around the room as people came and went seemed to be the most popular cocktail on the brunch cocktail menu the Petite Mary, which is essentially a martini made with vodka and celery juice with a wedge of lime on the side and the rim of the class coated with celery salt. And do you know what, it was absolutely divine just the right balance between salty and sour.

For her breakfast, my dining partner went for the fruit and yogurt granola (the pomegranate seeds scattered looked like tiny jewels adorning her dish), while I went for something a bit more brunch, and a bit more American themed. When I like to go out for brunch, I like to go all out and make if count as breakfast and lunch, after all! (Really, in my head that is just an excuse to indulge!)

This is ‘Egg In A Basket’ a totally delicious jumbo piece of some of the most delicious sweet French Toast I’ve ever had, topped off with bacon and syrup, and with a hole in the middle containing a perfectly cooked runny egg. I spent so long looking over to see what people at other tables, and also sitting at the communal table with us were ordering, that it was between the Egg In A Basket, the savoury ‘Fried Clucks’ waffle (a amazing looking and smelling classic American ginat waffle served with pieces of fried chicken) and the Tomato Braised Egg with Polenta, and while I am going back for both, Im so glad I went with the Toast!

While there are a few other places on Abbot Kinney I would like to try for both brunch and lunch, there is no way that I’m not going back to The Tasting Kitchen for at least another couple of meals. If you’re looking to treat yourself to a delicious and indulgent brunch one weekend this is where I would recommend. The Tasting Kitchen can be found at 1633 Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Places To Eat In Los Angeles: The Tasting Kitchen, Abbot Kinney

Okay, so while Toast is now down as my favourite lunch spot in Los Angeles, I have recently discovered my absoute favourite brunch spot in LA in the form of The Tasting Kitchen at the end of Venice’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Practically every website that lists the best places to eat brunch in Los Angeles lists The Tasting Kitchen, and from the moment you step inside and see the decor, and the waiting staff carrying everyone delicious looking and smelling orders to their tables, pretty quickly you understand why.





The bar is a big feature in the restaurant and they have so many cocktails and mixes you won’t find anywhere else. While The Tasting Kitchen is open all day, and for evening service, I could tell lots of people went there for the cocktails to accompany their brunch. I think if anyone ever asks me for the best place to go for a liquid breakfast in LA, I’ll be sending them to Abbot Kinney Boulevard for a tipple!


I went for what, after looking around the room as people came and went seemed to be the most popular cocktail on the brunch cocktail menu the Petite Mary, which is essentially a martini made with vodka and celery juice with a wedge of lime on the side and the rim of the class coated with celery salt. And do you know what, it was absolutely divine just the right balance between salty and sour.

For her breakfast, my dining partner went for the fruit and yogurt granola (the pomegranate seeds scattered looked like tiny jewels adorning her dish), while I went for something a bit more brunch, and a bit more American themed. When I like to go out for brunch, I like to go all out and make if count as breakfast and lunch, after all! (Really, in my head that is just an excuse to indulge!)

This is ‘Egg In A Basket’ a totally delicious jumbo piece of some of the most delicious sweet French Toast I’ve ever had, topped off with bacon and syrup, and with a hole in the middle containing a perfectly cooked runny egg. I spent so long looking over to see what people at other tables, and also sitting at the communal table with us were ordering, that it was between the Egg In A Basket, the savoury ‘Fried Clucks’ waffle (a amazing looking and smelling classic American ginat waffle served with pieces of fried chicken) and the Tomato Braised Egg with Polenta, and while I am going back for both, Im so glad I went with the Toast!

While there are a few other places on Abbot Kinney I would like to try for both brunch and lunch, there is no way that I’m not going back to The Tasting Kitchen for at least another couple of meals. If you’re looking to treat yourself to a delicious and indulgent brunch one weekend this is where I would recommend. The Tasting Kitchen can be found at 1633 Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
