Far Eastern Bowl

I still eat meat, but I reckon that one or two dinners without meat can’t hurt.

What I like about the Veggie Grill is the fake meat they serve. The Chikn in particular has the flavor and texture of chicken.

They change their menu every four months and often they have creative offerings, such as this Far Eastern Bowl.

The Chikn is roasted with sesame seeds, served on coconut rice, with roasted broccoli, sliced cucumbers and fresh mint. The chili slices add color, but weren’t very spicy. The combination of flavors was generically Southeast Asian, but pleasing. The fake chicken had a nice crunch to it.

I will give this meal two Bourdains.


Penang Shrimp Curry

There are plenty of Thai restaurants near me and I’ve been checking some of them out.

I had this at Nariya Thai, on the corner of Sunset and Gower. Were the peas authentic?

I’m not sure. I asked for it to be spicy and it was fairly hot.

The sauce tasted fine.

I started off with the Thai sausages which were sweet and fatty.

It was fairly good. I’ll have to return.

Fried Salmon Skin Roll

The WordPress app just crashed after I had almost finished this post, so I suspect this post won’t be as long.

Blue C Sushi is located on Sunset Boulevard and Ivar.

Blue C Sushi

Crunchy, salty and savory I devoured this.

The dragon roll was decent.

Usually I don’t order rolls, but these Americanisms are the house specialty.

I prefer sashimi and nigiri to rolls, but this would be a fun place to take a date.
