TiGeorges' -- Short Review

David Kahn | Jun 16, 200608:07 PM

A friend took me and a couple of other folks to TiGoerges' (309 Glendale Blvd., near 1st, (213) 353-9994) for lunch this week, and I must say, it will make a welcome addition to the regular rotation. This place is a casual neighborhood Haitian restaurant that's a five minute drive from the downtown financial district. Very good chicken (reminds me of Jamaican style jerk), and the goat was nice as well (slow cooked with lots of spice). They have a roast pork dish that is next on my list to try. Servings are generous, and pretty much everything comes with good beans and rice, salad with a sweet/tangy dressing, and an interestingly seasoned coleslaw. The goat, but not the chicken, came with delicious crispy smashed/fried plantains. We got there at noon sharp, and were the first lunch customers, but by the time we left at 12:45 the place was swinging. Lots of city employees watching the world cup and pounding down Haitian food. The owner (George Laguerre) came out and spoke with us over lunch, and he seems like a very nice man. If you work downtown or are in the area, this place is a nice casual spot worth adding to your list.
