Dish With Trish is having a burger kind of day!
Stout’s Truffle Shuffle burger hit the spot along with sweet potato fries and a big giant pretzel (off the menu) served with our choice of 3 sauces: Horseradish (my favorite), Chipotle Ketchup, & Bell Spread.
After all that yumminess, the great thing was being able to walk it off and sight see while in Santa Monica. Location is in the heart of everything from the beach, 3rd St. Promenade, SM Pier and much much more!

I had been to STK Los Angeles and STK New York awhile back and remember it being really good. STK Las Vegas reminded me how good!!! Looks like I will be going back a lot more often.
It was great to meet the man behind it all. The ONE Group Executive Chef, Stephen Hopcraft at STK Las Vegas. He is also recognizable from Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” contestant and Food Network’s “Chefs vs. City”.
This is our special place! Its great for date night, great for friends and family visiting, especially the Santa Monica location! The one thing this Boa has that the other ones don’t have is cotton candy! (Yes you read it right….COTTON CANDY!!!!) No matter what you order you will never be disappointed, from the regular menu to the specials!!! Something you must try while at BOA is Goat Cheese Baklava. Just imagine that combo and then when you try it, it will blow your mind! I have never had anything like it before. Sunday half off bottles of wine. BONUS! Oh don’t forget to try the Truffle Parmesan Cauliflower and when in season another must have are the brussel sprouts. I could give more, but lets just start there for now!
