Huckleberry Ferry.

Fried Egg Sandwich.
Maple Bacon Biscuit.

Huckleberry in Santa Monica was a Saturday brunch experience like no other. I usually don't have patience for being in a half hour line snaking through the restaurant and out the door, not to mention you're not allowed to get a table until your entire party is there and have ordered... but if the food's really good, it's worth the wait in the end.

The bakery/restaurant makes their own bread, pastries and desserts, which are all right up front for you to drool over as you make your order. I had the fried egg sandwich with runny sunny side up eggs, perfect bacon, gruyere, arugala and aioli, and also their signature maple bacon biscuit. Both were very yummy but neither of these can compare to their Prosciutto gruyere croissant and Blueberry tart. These two bakery items gave me a touch of the dizzies, the food high. And it is for these two things that I'll be back.

Great food in the $9-$12 range for a meal, around $4 for items from the bakery.

Later that night I visited the Sawtelle block and ate at Hurry Curry of Tokyo and had some red bean boba at Volcano Tea House. Both were pretty good, but I was surprised Volcano did not carry soymilk. Otherwise, their boba was perfectly chewy and delicious and they had huge drink selection. Next time, I'm trying the Oolong milk tea and waiting patiently for the Ramen Jinya to open down the street.
