Black Plaid + Son of a Gun

black plaid shirt dress

Happy 1st day of winter! I love going up to LA on the weekend for adventures. I get to find cool gems like these unicorn-esk wings all over the city and get to eat delicious meals. This is how we do winter in Cali. I can still wear dresses and pair them with over the knee boots to make them winter appropriate. I snagged this black plaid shirt-dress from the recent Obey Warehouse sale and I've linked it below. These are my favorite boots that you keep seeing in my posts from Forever 21. They're sold out, but there's a chance they will restock them. Here's some similar ones. My purse is the Selma from Michael Kors.  

I want to share my wonderful dining experience at Son of a Gun. Ever since hearing this was the seafood sister restaurant to Animal, I've had this on my "to try" list of bookmarks on Yelp. This is a small plates menu so we ordered 4 dishes to the 2 of us and that ended up being the perfect amount of food for lunch. Keep reading to see the deliciousness.

Son of a Gun Hamachi
This Hamachi dish was the perfect start to the meal. It was light and full of flavor. I love the sweet, salty and slight spice to it. I could eat this everyday if I had the option!

Son of a Gun Uni Pasta
This was an absolutely amazing pasta dish. It's very rich, as you would expect for any dish is uni it in. The pasta had the perfect texture and the clam pieces were surprisingly big and plentiful. You can really taste the uni in the sauce but not overpowering at all.

Son of a Gun Fish and Chips
This was a good bang for your buck kind of dish here. The fries were amazing and the fish was nice and lightly battered. The malt vinegar aoili was the perfect touch to this fried dish.

I would love to come back and try some of the items we didn't get this time around like the shrimp toast and the fried chicken sandwich.

Son of Gun is located at:
8370 W 3RD ST, LOS ANGELES, CA 90048

LUNCH: SUN – SAT: 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM

Happy Eating!
