I swung by today and enjoyed it. In line at 11:15 with food served at about 11:45. Adam was very friendly, chatting up the line and giving out samples.
The beef rib was terrific, particularly the amazing charred outer portions that he sliced off and placed in the boxed lunches. The prime rib was alright but fairly nondescript and lacking any real smokiness.
$30 included tax and a bottle water, putting the real price somewhere around $25, which doesn’t seem too outlandish. He mentioned potential plans to open a brick and mortar somewhere in Hollywood, which would be a great addition to the BBQ landscape.
Went to the APL pop-up solo and enjoyed it immensely! Standing there while the scimitar and bbq bathed me in smoke and fat. Ridiculously good food and some fantastic people running it. About a 30 min wait. Totally worth it.
Then I headed over to Ricky’s Fish Tacos for a second lunch. Ate 2 shrimp and 1 fish taco. Nice and briny fresh ocean flavor, with a nice crisp crust and a touch of heat from the jalapenos in the slaw.
On the way back home I had to stop for dessert at GCM. Dessert was in the form of a Belcampo cheeseburger, mid-rare, 1 carnitas taco from Villa Moreliana, some cheese nibbles at DTLA Cheese, and then topped it off with some cardamom and ginger snap ice cream at McConnel’s.
