Theres a good cheese shop in santa monica that slangs some rare Belgians and the like. They do a monthly beer + cheese night thats pretty awesome. http://andrewscheese.com/ Just ate lazy ox, had pig ear chicharones, lamb neck hash, and oxtail pasta, along with a couple belgians. The foods pretty damn good i could eat pig ears all day Tons of new flavors. Global/American tapas.
