Peter and I finally got to Cliff’s Edge (in Silver Lake) to try Chef Vartan Abgaryan‘s cooking last week. We first met Vartan at a local food event, and got to know him better when he volunteered with L.A. Bites Hunger.
Walking into Cliff’s Edge, we were instantly smitten with the romantic, hidden restaurant and still cannot stop talking about the fantastic meal.
In between the poached oysters topped with crispy squid ink and the salty/sweet caramel custard was, what is now, my very favorite pork dish in Los Angeles.
Wow. Just WOW! Vartan’s Suckling Pig with Crepinette (pork ball wrapped in caul fat), Pork Loin (right), Pork Belly and savoy cabbage, sweet potato, saison, pork jus.
Pork Belly Close-up! Peter called this “Pork Cake”.
There were gorgeous vegetables and barbecued octopus too, but I just can’t stop thinking about all the pork love.
My friend Josh Lurie aka @FoodGPS wrote a great piece about the dish here.

Jo, cool to hear you also enjoyed Vartan’s pork dish so much. He’s a rising talent, and appreciates good pig, like us. Thanks for the mention and link.
Pork is hard to beat, thanks for sharing this!
