The stretch of La C. between Beverly and Melrose has a few new-ish places that are very promising, casual eating-wise..
The deep, bright red shop caught my eye as I pulled into Blockbuster and the magic terms "chili" and "house made sausages/hotdogs" got imprinted on my retina. Next thing I knew my feet walked themselves right into Chili Addiction for lunch on Saturday. This place is REALLY, REALLY great.
They have super delish, creative chili's (steak, chicken and vegan - about 3 varieties each), as well as homemade mustards, ketchup and a wonderful sauerkraut. I had a great chicken bratwurst (sorry purists) and it was very moist and tasty with a better "snap” than most poultry-based dogs that I've had.
I have not yet tried Soda Pops yet but the sandwich menu looks great: who wouldn’t want a B.E.L.T. - BLT with a fried Egg?! And homemade Chips and Pickles too.
Has anyone been?
