baby blues.

one of my favorite places to eat at in los angeles is baby blues in venice. i don't know if this is because it seems all so familiar, having grown up in the south these dive-y bbq joints are a dime a dozen, or because the food is beyond delicious (i leave in a food coma every time), or the obvious muddy waters playing loud on the stereo, or because they have pbr and budweiser in a can. either way, this place just feels comfortable to me. because i am vegetarian i am always left ordering the "side car" which consists of 5 heaping sides . i can't really complain though, considering i get to choose from things like mac & cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, baked beans, okra, creamed spinach, and cornbread. the decision alone is a feat in itself. and yes, they are always so good.  i guess i'm not the only one who loves this place here- they did just recently open a new location in west hollywood. yummm, bbq and sweet tea...
