Sunny Spot

Kogi truck, ChegoA-Frame, Sunny Spot.  Papi (Roy) Choi feeds this city, and he does it damn well.

Sunny Spot is the latest stop in Choi's culinary ride, a place where Jamaica meets Southeast Asia.
T and I decided to check out their happy hour, which is M-F from 5-7 PM.

Happy hour menu

The happy hour menu is quite good... dare I say, better than the dinner menu.

Dinner menu


With our wine, we also got a couple of things off the happy hour menu and the dinner menu.  

Yucca Fries - $2 

With a banana Thai basil ketchup - the subtle, but tangy ketchup had a nice kick.

Two Fisted Burger - $6 

With tomato jam, arugula, cheddar, and herb mayo.

The burger was easily the best part of the entire meal.  Perfectly cooked meat paired with a fluffy brioche bun, all of the flavors complimented each other very well.

Roasted Beet Salad with housemade ricotta, rum-spiced honey cashews, pickled strawberries and oranges - $12

Brown Sugar Scotch Bonnet Short Ribs - $17

I wish I could have liked the short ribs, but it was sub-par at best.  The meat was fatty and the glaze was mediocre.  This dish was something I could have made (1) better (2) in my kitchen.

Overall, the place has an inviting vibe, especially at night.  Everyday's a holiday at Sunny Spot, so kick back, drink up, and relax!

Get: Burger, Yucca fries.
Pass: Short ribs.
