The New Potato– If you see us rocking a pair of ear muffs this winter, you can thank Billie Lourd for the inspiration (her character in Scream Queens, Chanel #3, is known for rocking them). There were many reasons we were excited to meet Lourd, all of which were amplified upon meeting her. We even forgot – if just for a moment – our long and enduring fandom for her Mom, Carrie Fisher.There are some women we meet that absolutely fit in with us potatoheads: huge foodies, big travel buffs, fashion obsessives; Lourd is one of them. Read below for her restaurant recommendations, which Instagram accounts to follow ASAP, and stories from the set of her upcoming Star Wars movie…
From start to finish what’s your ideal food day?
My ideal food day would probably start with breakfast at one of my favorite restaurants – Gjusta. I am passionately obsessed with their egg sandwich – it has pretty much all of my favorite foods on one beautiful English muffin – collard greens, bacon, avocado, hot sauce and a fried egg. How could you not start your day with that?!
After that I’d probably take a light nap then head to lunch at another one of my favorite restaurants in LA, Cha Cha Chicken. I looooove Caribbean food and am a self-proclaimed chicken connoisseur, and I must say they have the best jerk chicken I’ve ever had. My go-to dish is definitely the jerk chicken enchiladas. Sometimes I’ll branch out and go for the coconut fried chicken because it’s always hard to say no to a good fried chicken dish, but usually I stick with the enchiladas cause they’re INSANELY delish.
I’m also a huge fan of sushi (what sane person isn’t?!), so for dinner, I would go to my number one sushi spot – Kazu Nori. They have the BEST hand rolls ever. The rice is warm, the seaweed is crispy and the fish is supafresh.
