Sunday brunch, my favorite meal of the day and of the week.  Uyen was in town, so we took a leisurely stroll over to Abbot Kinney for coffees and a mid-morning meal.  We finally got around to trying out the brunch menu at the Tasting Kitchen, and it did not disappoint. First things first, some aperitifs to get us into a giddy, brunching mood!  A Bloody Mary for Uyen and a mimosa for me.  Then, we ordered a few tasty plates.  My favorite?  I loved the chicken & waffle.  My least favorite?  The grapefruit.  It was, um, interesting… but too saccharine with the questionable essence of Chinese medicinal tea.  (I will not be ordering that again.)  But overall, a solid spot for a lovely weekend meal.
