Fresh Corn Grill

Allow me share with you a place I recently discovered, thanks to my dear friend, CC.  It's called Fresh Corn Grill.  Since I love corn and all things fresh and grilled, it wasn't a hard sell for me.  And the minute I glanced at the menu and saw all that FCG had to offer, I knew I found a winner.

FCG has been around West LA for several years now and it opened a 2nd location in WeHo last year.  I suspect people love it for similar reasons I do: it offers healthy options without compromising the taste or destroying your wallet.  Plus, service is quick.  So if you're in Westwood or WeHo, and in need of finding a quick and delicious meal, FCG is your place.

Green Salad - mixed greens, grilled corn, and tomatoes, tossed in house vinaigrette - $6.95

[Huge] side of Sauteed Kale - $2.95

[Huge] side of Grilled Corn - $2.95

Sauteed Mushrooms - $2.95

Caprese Pasta - penne with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, parmesan, and a hint of garlic - $9.95

Turkey Meatloaf - with two sides - $12.50

Grilled Salmon Tacos - with two sides - $12.50

I ordered the tacos.  The minute I saw my heaping plate of food, I wiped off my drool and thought of eating just two tacos and saving the last for lunch the next day.  Fat chance.  I cleaned my entire plate of three tacos and a side of sauteed kale and grilled corn with no trouble at all.  And at the end, I didn't feel grossly full.

So basically, to sum up, FCG offers delicious, healthy, hugely-portioned meals that permits guilt-less eating.  Why is this place not talked about more often?  Who knows.  Now, go check it out for yourself!
