As much as I love dining around Los Angeles and discovering my best bites of the week, I enjoy hearing about the best bites of my family, friends, guests and fellow tour guides. When we brought Maureen onboard the summer of 2012 she told us she loved putting together her own “sites & bites” tours for out of town visitors. She shared some of her restaurant recommendations with us, and told me if she had to pick ONE best bite it would be the Butterscotch Pudding at Jar on Beverly Boulevard.
Well it took me awhile to get there, but this past Sunday I celebrated my friend Becky’s birthday at Jar. Our brunch included mimosas, a sticky bun, entrees, coffee and dessert. Lo and behold, there it was on the menu! You can see the luscious layers in this picture: butterscotch pudding topped with a salted caramel sauce and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. You can see by the after-picture that I didn’t leave much behind, and in fact I almost forgot to offer Becky a bite. Good thing she was enjoying her own Banana Cream Pie. Thanks to Maureen for the idea, and to Jar for giving me my best bite of the week!
