Bastille – Fake It (I just saw them a week ago so I have to include my fave song from the new album. Seriously got chills hearing this live!)
Depeche Mode – Policy of Truth (I just bought tickets to see them again! This time at the Hollywood Bowl so here is one of my fave songs from DM)
WILD – Hold Us Together (Acoustic)
Lauv – Breathe
Shura – Just Once
Eyeclimber – The Open Road
Bird Passengers – Brave The Dark
Secret Nation – Tonight
YOUTHFOOL – Better Off Dead
Now-a-days, Instagram is my go-to to find where all the cool kids are eating. When I see a drool-worthy picture, I immediately go to Yelp and bookmark if highly rated. So what was it that attracted me to Osteria La Buca?
Cacio e pepe. And it did not disappoint. Creamy, cheesy, peppery goodness.
We also ordered another pasta and pizza.
nero spaghetti – clams, squid, shrimp, tomato, chilis
calzone – mozzarella, ricotta, pecorino, spicy tomato sauce, broccolini
The nero spaghetti was good, but the cacio e pepe was clearly our favorite pasta. The texture of both pastas was perfect.
I love broccolini, but it typically adds a slight bitterness to a dish. Combine that with burnt pizza dough and you have a calzone that’s somewhat off putting.
All in all, this was good meal that we scarfed down in under 45 mins.
When you spend more time on the road to the restaurant than in the restaurant itself… #soLA
