Eating out in LA is much like finding a treasure chest for your tastebuds. Sometimes you come across a dish that was so good, you feel like your life has changed for the better because of it (you know what I’m talking about)
We went on a date to Majordomo and honestly it was PHENOMENAL. Funny story, we reserved dinner a month in advance, and when the day finally came Elijah woke up that morning with an eye allergy attack that left him nearly blind all day. We almost didn’t show up, but he rallied, put on some shades, and made it to dinner. It definitely paid off as we had one of the best meals of all time!
When we decided to cook our anniversary dinner at home this year, we thought back to our past memories of our favorite dates. The egg & roe bing from Majordomo was one of them! Ours may not be exactly like the restaurant’s creation, but it was so exciting because it was something we made ourselves and also filled us up with some much-needed nostalgia. Now you can try it, too! Grab a spoon and dig in all the way to the bottom of the bowl, plop it onto your flatbread, and get ready for a ride 😀
