Rate-A-Restaurant #375: My Two Cents (Mid-City)
Restaurant: My Two ¢ents
Location: 5583 West Pico Blvd (Mid-City)
Type of restaurant: Southern/Soul Food
We stipulated: For the 11th annual Great Los Angeles Walk, we returned to Pico Boulevard. There were many options between La Brea and Fairfax to stop for lunch, but I wanted to try something new, and the people I was walking with -- Anthony and Joni -- were also game. My Two Cents sounded like a good alternative.
They stipulated: "From the Soil to Your Soul We are committed to using fresh LOCAL organic Ingredients."
What we ordered: Mike: Oxtail tacos ($10), sweet potato crumble ($5)
High point: The tacos were flavorful, especially when dabbed with a bit of BBQ sauce.
Low point: Truly slooooowwwww service.
Overall impression: Nice option on Pico -- and when Anthony's crab cake order came short one crabcake (they ran out), the restaurant comped him a bowl of black-eyed pea soup, which ended up being his favorite part of the meal. Also: There's no signage, so you may miss it from the street. Look for the mural.
Will we return: Perhaps, if we're in the neighborhood.
