Four Things I Learned This Week (November 15)

It’s been a crazy week in Bridgetown Bites land, but I still have time to share with your four things I learned this week. It’s straight up restaurant news, and good stuff, at that.

Chameleon has a new menu. According to their Facebook page, Hollywood District mainstay Chameleon has a new menu. Owner Pat Jeung is back in town after some culinary travels: “After my little adventure to the middle east and Europe, I had an amazing time and got to cook with the locals in Beirut and Bucharest. Met some incredible new friends and feeling so grateful to be able to do what I do. Please come by soon to sample some of our new dishes on our menu!”

Brunch arrives at the Goat. Hogan’s Goat Pizza is now offering brunch. There are a number of egg dishes on the menu, but what caught my eye was the Breakfast Lasagna: “Eye opener lasagna featuring a crispy tater crust, layered with scrambled eggs, bacon, Italian sausage, and cheddar cheese. Accompanied by tomato slices.”

The Sudra has reopened on 28th Ave. According to their Instagram page, they are open in the new location: “We’re open! More space! New menu items! Same Sudra staff that you know & love.” They are now occupying the space that was home to Tapalaya for years, 28 NE 28th Avenue.

Wajan serves lunch! This wonderful new Indonesian restaurant has launched their lunch service. Stop by on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from 11:30am to 2:30pm.
