MAL­IBU CAFÉ COUN­TRY KITCHEN AND BAR

Qantas - - Quisine. -

327 Latigo Canyon Road, Mal­ibu the­mal­ibu­cafe.com From the coast, it’s a 15-minute drive through pic­turesque Ramirez Canyon to Mal­ibu Café Coun­try Kitchen and Bar at Calami­gos Ranch, one of the most pho­to­genic set­tings in Los An­ge­les County. At its coun­try-style mar­kets, vin­tage chan­de­liers hang over pic­nic ta­bles and each stall has a chalk­board menu dis­play­ing the type of food in which it spe­cialises. One serves gourmet burg­ers, while an­other might do smoked baby back ribs or Ten­nessee-style fried chicken (worth ev­ery calo­rie). The food here is dubbed “nou­veau bar­be­cue” and other dishes in­clude rib eye skew­ers, blue crab hush­pup­pies (corn­meal frit­ters) and shrimp and grits. There’s also a spinach and beet­root salad with whipped ri­cotta and a de­li­cious coun­try salad with rocket, red onion, goat’s milk fetta and a Meyer lemon dress­ing. The meals come in pic­nic bas­kets com­plete with a red-and-white checked cloth to spread over your table. With an over­size chess­board, gi­ant Jenga and a bean­bag toss, it’s a great

spot for fam­i­lies. While the kids play, the adults can sip a Ne­groni, a glass of Tait­tinger or a beer. This is how Mal­ibu does coun­try liv­ing.
