Tender Greens is a restaurant which emphasized vegetables, but they serve meat too.
A couple of weeks ago I really needed a break from grading so I took the train to Santa Monica.
I had seen another location of the chain in Hollywood on my four times a week run.
I also had a cup of jamaica. The fish taco was light and fresh I don’t remember what kind of fish it was, but I remember it being noticeably fresh. The carnitas taco was also good. I don’t recall what the third taco was.
A few weeks ago I went to Target and stopped by this place to have lunch. I can’t be bothered to find out if Mendocino Farms is a chain, but I can verify that they make a good BLT.
Of course the bread is artisanal and the bacon apple-smoked and organic.
The bacon slices were thick and the mayonnaise might have been a vegetarian substitute.
I’ve always like pumpkin pie as it’s essentialy a custard pie and I love egg-based desserts.
The pumpkin pie was creamy and smooth. I loved it. Not only do I like pumpkin, but I also enjoy pumpkin spice in all of its splendor.
Shake Shack, of any burger chain, makes the best basic cheeseburger. The bun is brioche-like, the meat is juicy and savory and the orange cheese is melted evenly.
Since moving to Hollywood I’ve seen the Veggie Grill every time I go to the gym. Last Friday I decided to try out this vegetarian restaurant. It might even be vegan.
The quote unquote meat tasted like very lean beef. The vegan cheese like substance tasted more like thousand island dressing, which isn’t a bad thing. Organic corn nuts were served in a ramekin. They were okay, but I don’t think they added anything to the fake burger experience.
