食記dine out • faith & flower @ l.a. // 絕美用餐氛圍 創意加州人餐廳


雖然這差不多是200年前去吃的, 但因為餐廳實在太美, 所以還是來寫了~


faith & flower在la還蠻有名, 因為行政主廚來自舊金山一間米其林, 在這裡實行一種創意料理的概念
加州是個充斥各式人口種族的地方, 所謂的californian cuisine包含了多種食材調味, 就是要給你驚奇又不詭異的美食饗宴! 加上空間裝潢設計非常有藝術感, 所以生意一直都不錯!

一踏進店裡的瞬間, 就被它的美驚豔到...  帶著復古風味的桌椅配上大面落地窗和透明白色窗簾, 室內光線非常充足, 讓人感到非常舒服, 華麗的水晶吊燈在這裡一點也不突兀..


好不容易定神坐下後更是對著餐具們流口水 (不是餓了 是餐具太美lol)
還沒點餐就已經加了超多分!


although we went to this restaurant like last decade, but i still want to write this post because i just love love love their interior design & all the furnitures and dinnerwares...etc! they are simply gorgeous.

faith & flower is pretty famous in los angeles. their executive chef is from a san francisco's michelin-starred restaurant, now oversees all culinary operations here. the food here is called "californian cuisine" which is inspired by a global influence of flavors & techniques. let's just say, the dishes they created here will surprise you in a good way.

the moment i stepped in this place, i was shocked by how pretty their interior is! a good mix of modernity & antiquity, everything just really pops. look at those green chairs & wood tables! and the big ceiling windows with dreamy white curtains! the rooms were perfectly lighted with natural light. after i finally sat down, i was drooling over their dinnerware and utensil.....(not because i was hungry.. they are just too beautiful!)

撇開食物不說, 餐盤這麼美 光是用看的心情就超好啊!
重點是食物也有一定的水準~

summer squash salad
很清爽的沙拉, 開心果莫名的和乳酪很合, 加上檸檬胡椒醋醬也不奇怪~

i was satisfied enough just looking at their sets. but their food amazed me once again.

a light salad with squash slices & fruits, topped with pecorino cheese and spiced pistachios. then drizzled with creamy lemon pepper vinaigrette. a perfect mix!


很多人都會點的deviled jidori eggs
混了韓式辣醬的蛋黃加上泡菜, 非常香辣的口味!  有點令人上癮..


their famous deviled jidori eggs/
the york was mixed with korean chili sauce, then topped with kimchee. a very korean style deviled eggs with perfect spiciness. this is actually addicting...


crispy twice-cooked potatoes
烤兩次就是不一樣, 外皮酥脆到一個極致!
上面灑的cheese sauce和火腿讓馬鈴薯味道更豐富~


crispy twice-cooked potatoes/
they are as crispy as they sound! the skins were golden crisp, and the manchego cheese sauce & serrano ham just added the right amount of savory flavors! 


seared steelhead trout
煎得剛剛好的魚排, 表皮金黃, 魚肉鮮嫩;
和芝麻葉與葡萄柚一起吃味道很美妙

look at that golden color! the fish fillet was seared to perfect. and it tasted wonderful with arugula & grapefruit. not weird at all.


handmade cavatelli
第一次吃cavatelli, 雖然外觀不是很討喜
(一直想到某種昆蟲的幼蟲啊.....orz)
但其實手作麵很有嚼勁, 吸滿了乳酪醬汁很夠味~

it was my first time eating cavatelli. although i don't like the look of that pasta (they kept reminding me of maggot.........*faint*), but they were actually very tasty when they soaked up all the parmigiano broth. 


wood oven eggs benedict pizza
因為友人吃素, 所以請他們不要加smoked bacon. 薄片麵皮上有菠菜和班尼迪克蛋, 個人覺得口味有點清淡><

eggs benedict on pizza dough! i liked the wood baked smell. but my friend is vegetarian so we asked to take out the smoked bacon. i felt like it was missing a stronger salty flavor...

 

下面是最角落的一間包廂, 非常適合辦私人聚會, 去的當天好像就有bridal shower

大門進來左邊是bar, 聽說這裡的調酒也很棒,
不吃飯和朋友小喝兩杯感覺也很愜意~

 

below photo was a private room. great for personal gatherings! i think there was a bridal shower going on that day we went. 
and there's a full bar on the left side after entrance. they have a popular list of cocktails here as well. it's chill just to drink a few glasses of alcohol & chat with friends! 


甜點不知道叫什麼名字, tapioca pudding之類的東西 加上冰淇淋
印象中冰淇淋非常好吃 (?)  


not sure what's the name for the dessert. it was something like tapioca pudding with ice cream. i remember the ice cream was amazing!

室外座位很多, 若是天氣不太熱  還蠻適合邊享受陽光邊用餐~
而且藤椅還挺可愛的


我覺得faith & flower是很適合姐妹聚餐聊天的地方, 情侶約會也不錯,
就是東西很精緻, 氣氛很美很夢幻~ 喜愛美麗餐具和傢俱的人應該會很愛這裡! 
推薦給大家嘍

there are plenty of patio seats. you get to enjoy the sun & food when it's not too hot. plus the cane chair looks adorable! 

i think faith & flower is great for girls hanging out. also a good fit for couple dating. their food is small portion but super fancy & delicate. the environmental atmosphere is lovely. if you like pretty dinnerwares & furnitures, you'll definitely love this place!
