You’re in a randy mood and want to eat Kettle corn and Sloppy Joe sliders and pretzel bites while doing karaoke and having game night all at the same time. Last night The Monster was invited to Vodvil’s soft opening. And at Vodvil you can nosh on all-American eats while fulfilling your singing/trivia-gaming/photo-booth-loving desires all in the same location. Since it is a preview and the staff is just getting its footing (and because the meal is comped) there will be no grade given but The Monster will give you the very first word in Los Angeles on what to expect.
Vodvil sports a menu of simple American fare served with Coney Island flair. There’s a pickle jar and pigs in a blanket and four types of sliders (Indian inspired lamb with onion relish, dill yogurt; turkey Sloppy Joe with pickles; Kobe beef with pickles, ketchup, American cheese; falafel with tahini, tomato chutney, lavash bread). Assorted meat is served on a stick (chicken satay with peanut sauce; marinated beef with pineapple; spicy pork with peaches) along with pot pies and shake and bake chicken. For the health conscious there is a selection of salads and vegetable sides and if you order them everyone you’re with should make fun of you mercilessly and then leave you without a ride home.
