food, tour, hollywoodThanks to my friend Brenda, I was introduced not only to a new restaurant, but also a great Happy Hour menu.  Upper West on Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica had many interesting offerings on their Happy Hour menu, which runs from 5pm to 7pm every day, and a bonus 5pm to 10pm on Mondays .  We ordered drinks, and a few items, and then the gentlemen sitting next to us at the bar insisted on sharing his plate of Lamb Nachitos.

Brenda and I munched on Sweet Corn Fritters dipped in a chipotle ranch dressing, and quesadillas generously stuffed with pork cheek, but it was the Curried Chicken Salad that really made my day.  It was cool and crisp, with a variety of textures and colors.   You can see by the picture that It was served in a very clever and appetizing fashion.  On a warm summer evening, catching up with a good friend, this salad was a perfect fix.   I am happy to declare this Curried Chicken Salad as my best bite of the week!
