The Honor Bar
Part of South Beverly Grill on Beverly Drive, this fancy yet casual bar really got me hooked! A less fancy version of South Beverly Grill, Honor Bar contains sandwiches, some sides and some sushi from next door! Both the restaurants are connected and the Honor Bar is affordable and delicious!
Let’s start with the Osaka Style Sushi. I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now and it was delicious! It is definitely hyped up and isn’t anything SUPER SPECIAL but it was still really delicious. I can taste the freshness of the fish, something that I am skeptical about in other restaurants. This was $16.00 for 4 pieces so it is a little pricey, but worth a try for the first time! I will be getting this again along with trying the Salmon Mango Roll, which is probably more worth it, same price but 8 pieces. The Osaka Style Sushi was nothing far off from typical crispy rice, however, Osaka is compressed sushi, not fried in comparison to crispy rice. In addition to the sushi, it comes with a spicy mayo sauce with a kick: SESAME OIL. This really brings on crazy flavor and dipped my fries in this as well!
The fries were honestly one of the best. Super oily, which means you KNOW it’s good! It had a lot of flavor and every fry was crunchy! It came with an amazing fresh ketchup and spicy mayo type sauce that had the same sauce as the Osaka sushi. The sesame oil in the sauce paired perfectly with the crunchy french fries. This was $3.00 so not pricey at all to add onto your meal.
Next, is the crispy chicken sandwich. Oh my god guys, amazing! I am a huge fan of crispy chicken sandwiches and have tried a bunch! Other good ones are from Ink Sack or Mendocino farms! But this, was on another realm and knocked my taste buds out of the park!
Size = big for ME, for others, it may be perfect, or it may be small. It is divided into 3 pieces that are moderately big. The chicken is crispy, but not crispy where you can’t bite into it, the crispy that is crunchy in your mouth and also has a smooth texture after the crunch subsides. It also had tomatoes, cheese and a kale salad. What?? In my sandwich, there was a kale salad? And YES there was! And not just KALE randomly placed, it had been seasoned and dressed, absolutely divine! One of the most AMAZING sandwiches I’ve ever had and felt SO BLESSED after this meal.
Honor Bar can definitely get pricey but all in all, set in Beverly Hills, connected to South Beverly Grill, I think the price is BETTER than GOOD. It is a cheaper but still JUST AS delicious as South Beverly Grill.
I got a table right away and the service was extremely friendly. Our waiter always came back to see if we were okay and I think filled our cups of water around 7 or 8 times. No complaints there!
This place was seriously a treat so be SURE to check it out :)
