So on this somewhat gorgeous Saturday, I went out to lunch with my dad. First great thing about lunch with the parents are 1) a free meal and 2) going out to eat. No dining hall food for me today!!
Because I am trying to be a vegetarian for this month, I decided to go to Real Foods Daily (recommended by my mother’s friends) in Santa Monica. I was disappointed because brunch is only served on Sundays, so I wanted to try the tofu scrambled eggs and gluten free pancakes, but I guess next time. So I just ordered off their regular menu. Before the place even started (at 11:30), people were already waiting outside.
The pizza was gluten and wheat free, and you had to eat it with a fork and knife because it was so thin. It was an okay option. I made my dad order this, and he only ate one piece, but he’s a good sport for going along with my vegetarian diet. And yay for leftovers! Woop woop!
Now my tofu ruben sandwich is a whole ‘nother story. It was ahhhmaziing! If I could eat this for lunch for the rest of my life, who the hell needs meat in their diet? It just had such a great texture and it was very good. The taste it kind of hard to explain, but this is a great choice for a light lunch.
I could not leave the restaurant without having a sweet, so I got the red and white cupcake (gluten free!). The cupcake’s frosting was so airy and sweet, I could honestly eat it with anything. It was reallyyy light, and it just had a wonderful taste. The cupcake part was so-so, but it was moist which I love, and the frosting definitely made up for it. Plus, I didn’t have the sick to my stomach, I feel like shit feeling that I usually get after eating a cupcake.
So I can say that this was a successful Saturday lunch in Los Angeles, and my mom is coming to visit me tomorrow or Tuesday so I have to find a different place to go around LA. Maybe sushi, or somewhere in West Hollywood? If you have any suggestions, please do tell!!
