Remember the old tv commercial for Camel cigarettes? The one that said, "I'd walk a mile for a camel?" Well gone are those days, of commercials for ciggies. Now it's rehab centers, and fast food.
What would you walk a mile for? I probably wouldn't walk a mile for anything, but I'd definitely drive a few miles (like 30) for a great piece of cheese. That's what I said today when we decided to embark on an "adventure" of sorts to Eagle Rock where Milkfarm
opened it's doors a mere two weeks ago. Owned and operated by the former head Cheesemonger/Manager of The Cheese Store of Silverlake, Leah Fierro really knows her cheese! The selection is magnificent and I was quite impressed that she carries my favorite
Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel. ($15 per 1/4 pound). Other locally-produced foods abound such as artisan Bread Lounge baguettes and crunchy Fleur de Sel & Peanut Artisan Brittle from Morning Glory Confections. Sandwiches change daily. We
enjoyed the Grilled Cheese special ($9) today, the "Soup and Sandwich" with slow cooked tomatoes, Cotswold, garlic, and fresh herbs on stoneground country bread. We also had the yummy shaved turkey, aioli, and cheese on a tasty baguette. ($8). Sit at the communal
table at the back and watch as this little shop fills up with the lunch time crowd. Eagle Rock's got a winner here! Milkfarm LA 2106 Colorado Blvd. Los Angeles (323) 892-1068 Hours: Mon-Sat: 11:00 a.m.- 7:00 p.m. Sun: 11:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.
