Saturday Lunch in Los Angeles

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!!

    There’s tons of great places to try in West Hollywood – depends on what you’re feeling but you can’t go wrong with brunch! My favorites are Kings Road Cafe, Urth Cafe, Toast, Doughboy’s, and Bld.
