The Local Peasant is a gastrobub in Sherman Oaks with great food and drinks. There is no sign from the outside, so it’s easy to miss from the street. They have a great selection of unique beers and cocktails, as well as interesting and delicious finger foods.
MAC N’ CHEESE W/ BACON & BLACK TRUFFLE OIL
BLUE CHEESE FRIED OLIVES
OMG so amazing! This was one of my faves of the night. It came with a chipotle sauce and it literally melted in your mouth. Don’t really love blue cheese because of the strong flavor, but these weren’t strong. They were perfection. Obsesseddd!
CRISPY PORK BELLY W/ PICKLED WATERMELON RIND AND SWEET & SPICY TAMARIND SAUCE
My other favorite dish of the night. I can’t even describe how much flavor this had. It tasted like the most flavorful, crispy, yet tender piece of bacon I’ve ever had. Pork belly is my new favorite thing lol. Never had a more flavorful meat. Highly recommended!
THE PEASANT BURGERS W/ CHEESE, ONION, FRIED EGG & SPECIAL SAUCEGreat burger. Meat was flavorful and juicy. Loved the special sauce with it, and the fried egg made it extra gooey and added a nice touch. I usually don’t prefer an egg on my burger but on this one it worked. The fries were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Def a hearty good meal! Yummyyy
FISH & CHIPS- BEER BATTERED RED SNAPPER W/ HOUSE MADE TARTAR SAUCE
Honestly the best fish and chips I’ve had. Melted in your mouth. Didn’t have too much batter, and the fish was delicious and super flaky/tender. Came w/ a vinegar spray bottle too. Dipped in the tartar sauce, it really was amazeballs. Another highly recommended dish!
THE PEASANT MINIS-4 MINI BURGERS, SLOW ROASTED PULLED BEEF, SPICY CARROTS, PICKLED RED ONIONS, CABBAGE & HOUSE SAUCE
The meat had a strong flavor- lots of sauce, spices and well marinated. Feel like you have to be in the mood for it, it’s rich. But still tasty, and perfect to share with someone. A little much to have all to yourself, but good nonetheless.
The Local Peasant is a great place to go with a group of friends on a Saturday night for food and drinks, or the perfect place to go for a drink and dinner after work. I’ll be back!
