My dear SCV! I used to pride myself on being the first one to bring you the latest and greatest to grace our town, but with a full time job, and lack of time, I haven’t been blogging. Also, there hasn’t been much in terms of good food coming to town so I had lacked motivation too. Until today!
There is a new place in Newhall that opened up called Bricks on Lyons. Mike D. told me about it weeks ago and we eagerly awaited the grand opening. I finally got to try it today with Vinh and my brother Hsiawen. I hadn’t seen him and his wife Deb in a long time, and it was so nice to finally meet their baby boy! Seeing them so happy, made me melt. Hsiawen is going to be an amazing father to that adorable little boy.
I’m not sure what the story is behind Bricks, but I’m definitely intrigued. They have a great simple menu consisting of salads, sandwiches, burgers, and sides.
These are the sides, which are all reasonably priced.
They also have shakes and boba! While Vinh and I waited for Hsiawen and family, we got started with some shakes!
Vinh had blueberry.
And I had oreo!
As we toasted (cheers), we remarked that we loved the use of ball jars and boba straws! These were only $3 and made to order. They have a variety of shakes that were listed on a chalkboard so I’m thinking flavors change. I will definitely be back for a shake!
They had a special menu board by the register with specials. You order at the counter, and then your food is brought to your table. The kitchen is pretty open so you can see everything being prepared. It was actually really cool and all of the orders being turned out looked lovely.
I always remark that although I love breakfast, I rarely get the chance to eat breakfast…so naturally I ordered the breakfast burger.
This was Vinh’s burger. It looked UmamiBurger-ish because of the bun.
This was Hsiawen’s burger.
Deb had the Ryan’s Special, which looked amazing, but my photo didn’t come out. Just imagine a massive burger with onion rings. It looked really good! All burgers are served with greens and mandarin oranges, which is a nice touch.
I added an order of fries to my burger, which was served with homemade garlic aioli. Nothing special but a nice compliment to the burger for only $3.
They have a nice little seating area outside, which would be a nice place to hang out on those hot summer nights with the crew. There is something different about Bricks that I haven’t seen in the SCV lately. It was just a refreshing place and I saw some LA influence here, which makes me happy. I am definitely going to be a regular here, and explore more of the menu. They say that they make their own blend which is ground in house daily, which is fantastic. The prices are really reasonable for the quality of the ingredients, which pleases me. So, SCV…please go support this new mom and pop local business! It is located across the street from Old Orchard park, and those of you that have been around for a while will remember it as the old Taco Bell/Burrito Factory spot.
