This week’s decide by Christina Champlin, Co-Founder of We Like L.A.

Trendy Filipino hotspot Ma’am Sir simply up to date their bar menu and it’s completely indulgent. For those who’re a fry lover (and who isn’t?) the additional crispy Garlic Cheese Fries come doused in thick velvety cheddar cheese. I heartily advocate. Want more substance before you dive into the drink menu? The Fried Hen Sandwich with slaw, tomato and gravy wedged between a semi candy bun will present sustenance as you explore the intriguing cocktail record from new bar director, Ramsey Musks.

Here you will see tiki-inspired drinks designed with the autumn season in-mind. The Marie Pear made with Rhum JM, Real McCoy 5yr, St. George Spiced Pear, lime, rose and almond is a light-weight and refreshing selection. Negroni followers need to attempt the Berde, a green variation of the Negroni made with coconut washed Bimini Barrel Aged Gin, Amaro Angelino, Makrut infused Bitter Bianco, Dry Vermouth, Falernum and Funky Overproof Jamaican rum. For a cocktail that’s each complicated and beautiful the Lapu Lapu is the best way to go. The drink combines Ube Butter washed Jack Rye with Wray and Nephew Overproof Rum, Ube Gomme and house bitters of angostura rested with coconut and Ube. As a result of the Lapu Lapu includes a number of gadgets infused with Ube (a purple yam fashionable in Filipino desserts) it produces a vibrant purple glow to the elixir that appears completely applicable for the Halloween season. Cheers!

Ma’am Sir is situated at 4330 W Sundown Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90029
