Chef Jamey Fader reviews  at
Hot chicken drumsticks
"The drummies are done confit-style so the meat holds together, but they are soft once you take a bite. The wood-fire oven crisps up the outside of the meat and the chili oil is smoky and spicy. They're like a lollipop of chicken goodness doused in chili oil and heated in a wood-fire oven."
Chocolate chip cookies
"They're baked to order and served soft and gooey on a plain white plate so that the whole experience is about the cookie. Too good."
Triple d sampler
"Being an East Coast native, the thought of getting to have matzo ball soup, a meat knish, and kishke ALL on one plate is like heaven. Everything is made from scratch, and you can feel the love in every bite."
"I'm not really sure what their secret is, but unlike most carnitas that are simply heavy with lard, these have the caramelization and sweetness that you crave from carnitas done right. I like them as a platter with grilled onions, especially with the housemade hot salsa you can smother everything with, but they are good no matter what."

Chef Matt Selby reviews Butternut squash queso at LOLA
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch, | Mexican
Highland, Northwest
1 Review
"This dish comes with roasted butternut squash, housemade chorizo, pepita pepian, goat cheese, and a flour tortilla. I love butternut squash and use it whenever I can during the winter for those dishes that make you feel warm and cozy. At Lola, I love what they've done with it, adding chorizo and goat cheese for an absolute masterpiece."
