Oh come on! Admit it. You’re totally dying to sample the toddler cuisine at Giggles n’ Hugs. On April 12th, you won’t even need to borrow a kid, as Los Angeles magazine is helping to host the first Taste of Westfield Century City, a tasting event that focuses on the mall’s restaurant lineup to benefit the great cause of Food for All with 100% of the proceeds. The $30 ticket price ($25 if you buy ahead of time) will offer signature food samples from eight of the mall’s restaurants, including Obika, RockSugar, Toscanova, Pink Taco, Houston’s, Gulfstream, and Breadbar. There will also be a wine and cheese lounge from Gelson’s and a big old promotional pavilion for Sony, and of course, the aforementioned Giggles and Hugs. Considering the price of a movie ticket and popcorn these days, the $25 ticket price sounds reasonable for three hours spent gnoshing and sloshing around at Westfield. Tickets can be purchased now at The Westfield concierge or at Gelson’s. See the complete list of what’s being served down below.

Breadbar - Signature sliders with wine selection

Giggles N Hugs - Pizza bites, mini mac & cheese, mini cupcakes with a fresh fruit smoothie

Gulfstream - Smoked salmon and chef’s dressing with Sauvignon Blanc

Houston’s - Spinach & artichoke dip with white wine selection

Obika Mozzarella Bar - Caponata, eggplant parmigiana, ricotta mousse with a Pim’s mojito

Pink Taco - Signature pink-hued taco with a margarita

RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen - Princess shrimp, chicken samosa, spicy ahi roll with blood orange sangria

Toscanova - Mozzarella pizza, porcini mushroom risotto, umbricelli with sausage, spinach & ricotta ravioli, cherry tart and tiramisu with white wine spritzers
