A Taste of Home

I love Californian cuisine (seriously, how do people stay so skinny here?!), but every so often I get a craving for a good old-fashioned British fry-up. With proper British bacon. And HP Sauce. And vinegar on my chips. Shut up haters, chips with vinegar go together like Marmite on toast. Oh, don't even get me started...

Anyway, whenever the urge to clog my arteries with delicious fatty goodness hits, we head down to the Cat & Fiddle  on Sunset Blvd. Picture a dingy greasy spoon cafe with dirty cutlery and rain lashing against the windows, and then laugh as you realize hey - you're in California! There are no greasy spoon cafes here! Instead, you can enjoy your weekend brunch in the Cat & Fiddle's charming, tree-lined courtyard. With its round-the-world brunch menu, you can choose anything from a full English breakfast (veggie option available) to a croque madame. The pub is rarely overcrowded, the staff are friendly and efficient, and best of all, they allow dogs. In typical LA fashion, pups even get their own menu (calorie count not included):

Judging by Katie's reaction to 'Fido's Dream' (an entire hamburger patty for the extremely reasonable price of $3), the restaurant's new doggy menu is a hit. The patty lasted for approximately 45 seconds (40 were spent waiting for it to cool). 

Unfortunately, since sampling the new menu, Katie has become a total prima donna and refuses to accept anything less than sirloin for dinner. Hopefully the Cat & Fiddle will start offering delivery service soon...
