LA Weekly's Description

Sqirl has everything I want, on one plate, over and over again. Like what? Like a bowl of Kokuho Rose brown rice with sorrel pesto, preserved Meyer lemon, black radish, French sheep feta and a silken poached egg, amped up subtly at the edges with hot sauce. The lemon is so assertive as to make me pucker, the feta generously creamy, the hearty rice intensely nutty and comforting. The combination has the effect of a song lyric or a line of poetry that's so resonant, you think to yourself: I should have written that. I should have come up with this dish. I should be making this for my family for breakfast — if only I had the time/ talent/ imagination. --Besha Rodell

    We recommend the astonishing "Hamembert" plate with Mangalitsa ham, oozing wedges of Camembert cheese, and an artfully charred length of baguette.

    Get the toasted Proof brioche topped with sweet or savory ingredients, Thai-inspired salads or creamy porridge. Quiche and frittatas are also always good bets.

    Fantastic food...but horrible wait. If you are starving don't go on weekend post 10am. But do go.

    Jam. Try anything with the housemade jam here! The scones are amazing, as well as the rice porridge. For full review of this place, please check out my food blog www.gofindalice.com/blog/sqirl-la 🍴

    The creative genius behind Sqirl is Jessica Koslow. She is very down-to-earth and a lovely person. Make sure to say hello when you visit.
