This stark restaurant on Fairfax is easy to miss. However once you're inside you'll be bowled over by the menu. I tend to be a slightly reserved eater but took the advice of the excellent waiter and ordered the pig ear. All I can say is:

When the Nine Inch Nails wrote, "I want to f@ck you like an Animal", they must have been thinking of this place.\r
