Lunch at Good Stuff. Turkey club, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes with a side of fries. Pretty tasty. The have some vegetarian options as well. Makes for a good lunch spot, there are a few around town. I've only been to the one on Olympic at Bundy. Service is usually pretty quick, good prices and healthy options.



Fried Hominy at Animal Restaurant

Fried hominy with lime, grown up version of corn nuts, but crunchy texture like popcorn shrimp. Very snackable and really good. This was our second time to Animal and service was great, friendly and top notch. We got there right at 6pm when they opened and scored seats at the bar without reservations. The bar seating filled up within 10 minutes.

Shrimp taco and grilled fish taco. The shrimp are pan grilled in this polynesian, garlic, soy sauce that is really great, savory but not to much so you still get the sweetness of the shrimp. The grilled fish are done simply, grilled with some salt and pepper and I think a little olive oil. The rice and beans are really good as well, but if you're watching you're calories, skip them. Wahoo's has great food, they're fast, pretty healthly and at a great price. I eat here almost once a week.


Breakfast for Lunch

The bigger better breakfast. 2 eggs, hash browns, ham, bacon, sausage (I substituted bacon for the sausage) and toast (or pancakes). The service is usually pretty good, prices are good. Its just a good old diner.



Greek at Swingers Diners

Had the mediterranean platter from Swingers Diner for lunch. Got some pita, hummus, house made falafel and a greek salad. Pretty tasty and filling. Service can be a bit hit and miss though, this was at the Santa Monica location. Its been awhile since I've been to the Beverly Blvd location so I can't compare the two.

Lunch at the Golden State Cafe. I had the grilled Italian sausage with roasted red peppers and carmeralized onions. Plus, some sweet potato wedge fries on the side and they're included (few other choices besides sweet potatoes). Deliciously obscene. Really love this place. Friendly staff, everything is local. They don't have a large menu, but it doesn't need to be. You'll be seeing more posts from here in the future thats for sure. Located in the heart of the Fairfax district, I highly recommend it.



French Ham Sandwich and Roasted Beet Gazpacho Soup

Lunch at one of our favorite local places, Breadbar. Half ham sandwich with butter and cornichons on a fresh baguette (the best bread), roasted beet gazpacho soup with a dollop of goat cheese. Can't seem to say enough good things about Breadbar. At night its Chef Ludo's place, Ludo Bites.



Tender Greens

Grilled albacore tuna (medium rare), yukon mashed potatoes and a baby spinach goat cheese salad. My usual. The food and service tends to be fairly consistent and good. Depending on the time of day, there can be a line, but it does tend to move along pretty fast. Regardless, its always great and the prices are just right.


Umami Burger

The mideast lamb burger from Umami Burger. Sonoma lamb with a honey-harrisa sauce with grilled red onions and cucumbers. The burger itself had ground onions in it as well as other various mideast spices/herbs. Really juicy, sweet, but spicy, really good.
