BAYFOOD TRAVELS: Ludo Bird (Universal City, CA) - Eating French inspired chicken after a busy morning walking all over Universal Studios had me salivating by lunch! 

A few weeks before I got to L.A., I heard how Ludo Lefebvre (Top Chef Masters, The Taste) opened Ludo Bird at Universal City Walk. I know that his restaurants are well lauded, and having seen him on TV before, I was excited that there was a possibility we would get to try it when visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. City Walk starts at the beginning of the park, and there a bunch of shops and restaurants that you can peruse without necessarily going into the amusement park itself, similar to Downtown Disney. 

When we got there around noon, it was relatively empty, mostly because it was raining. They only have tables outside, so it scared off the locals from sitting outside! That was better for us, honestly, since we didn’t have to wait that long for food, heh. 

Since Ludo Bird is all about the chicken, I ordered Chicken popcorn bites, which had an amazing seasoning on them! It was SO GOOD. The key herb that I could decipher was rosemary, and it made me want to eat an insane amount of chicken. It was tender inside and perfectly crispy on the outside and not dry at all. I also shared an order of fries, which were nice and thick, but what really made it were the sauces. We ended up ordering all six - Piquillo Pepper, Béarnaise, Spicy Sauce, Ranch, Honey Mustard, and Special Sauce - but the Béarnaise sauce was the big winner. It’s butter, egg yolks, vinegar, and herbs mixed together to make a really creamy, buttery sauce. Their ranch also had a slightly different taste than traditional ranch with the herbs. 

Other things ordered were the Buttermilk Provençal “The Original” Sandwich and the Honey Lavender Biscuit. The sandwich has seasoned fried chicken with coleslaw piled on top. The biscuit, which was basically smothered with the honey lavender was so good! The biscuit was thick and butter, and the honey lavender added an extra level of sweetness without being too heavy while also balancing out the saltiness. 

Definitely get a chance to stop by Ludo Bird if you’re in the area - I still think and crave that popcorn chicken and lavender biscuits!

her whole album is cute! im from arkansas, so, its to be expected lolol. all the better to smile ab southern things mccree would do. my fave thrift store has a sign up that says "i could sop you up with a biscuit!" he def says this to hanzo

Yes he 100% does?? He also drinks iced sweet tea and Hanzo nearly spits it out on the floor the first time McCree offers him “iced tea.” Actually just the concept of Southern Soul Food in general; Hanzo’s from Japan and his arteries probably clog instantly as soon as McCree talks to him about Chicken Fried Steak or Biscuits and Gravy or Fried Okra.

Eventually McCree sits him down and cooks him a nice meal made of wholesome Southern Hospitality and Hanzo goes into a food coma after like five bites because it’s so rich and heavy.  


Summer Vacation Part 1: Emerald Isle, NC

I was so excited to see my gals from Peace Corps! We got to stay in Emerald Isle where my friend’s parents have a beach condo. That thought in itself was astonishing to me…people having “vacation” homes. Yeah, people do that here in CO, but these condos were amazing!

We arrived on Friday, after first having chicken and biscuits for breakfast (it was my first time in the south, so I had to do as the locals do), and we went straight to the beach. We took a nice stroll to the point and came back to a delicious shrimp and sausage boil dinner.

On Saturday, we went to the beach (this landlocked girl couldn’t get enough of the sand between her toes!) and then went to town to rent some beach cruisers to ride around. I was obsessed with those bikes! After some more beach time and delicious homemade cheeseburgers (AMERICA), we took a sunset ride to the pier and saw real sharks. Like LEGIT, not contained in an aquarium, sharks. It was terrifyingly awesome. We had some Sweet Spot ice cream (omg yum) and rode back to the condo.

On Sunday, our last day in Emerald Isle, we took a 14.5 mile bike ride down the island. My friends, each living in DC and NC, felt rough afterwards; I felt great! Thanks, sea level! After feeding some turtles, we had some lunch, then drove back to Durham. We met up with my friend’s partner and after having ice cream from the Parlour (omg yum), I grabbed the bull by balls and called it a night.

On Monday, we all went to Dame’s (almost) Famous Chicken & Waffles for breakfast (OMG YUM). I seriously have been craving C&W ever since that amazing meal. I’d go back to NC just for that alone. DC gf and I then headed to the airport where we flew up to DC and enjoyed Part 2 of my Summer Vacation… (to be continued)

Sidenote: While in NC, I used the men’s room a few times and never got ID’ed. Middle finger to you, HB2!
