After reading many sensational reviews of Auntie Em's Kitchen in Eagle Rock, my fiance and I decided to pay this place a visit. We were looking forward to try their food as well as their famous red velvet cupcake that many raved about. Sad to say neither the food nor the cupcake made the mark. The eggplant strata was weak in flavor. The red velvet cupcake was dry with a thick layer of frosting which perhaps was used to counteract the dryness. We left the place with half eaten food on our plates. In our opinion, Auntie Em got what she deserved in the Throwdown with Bobby Flay, the loser title. Her kitchen and her cooking still have lots of room for improvement.
