Monday Night Supper at Lou

These pictures pretty much sum up our evening. I think we went out to celebrate something, but I can't remember what. It was a pretty memorable dinner though! I love prefixed menus. They force me to try things I wouldn't otherwise order. In this case, it was the pan-fried sole. It was in a delicious pea tendril broth that almost out-shined the fish! This hidden restaurant in a strip mall next to a laundromat has an extensive menu of wines by the glass and a weekly Monday night supper! Check it out.

Native Foods

Last week I met my parents and sister, Chyna, for lunch at Native Foods in Culver City. I think this place is great. It's a fun, funky place that serves solely vegan dishes inspired by foods from all around the globe. They have everything from sweet potato taquitos to Greek gyros to portobello and sausage burgers. We got their Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger, Spicy Meatball Pizza and Baja Surf Tacos. We all left happy and satisfied :) This is a order your food and take a number kind of place, so no need for reservations! It does get busy during lunch hour though, so be warned. Oh, and be sure to try their lavender lemonade. It was delish!
