My final dinner in LA turned out to be vegan again – we spontaneously headed to Flore, a small but great vegan place on Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake.
On my last days in LA, I was accompanied by Miss Pet Fanclub, who was more than willing to screw all those vegan, raw, organic restaurants and go for the real deal: a full on all-american breakfast. So we went to Norms on La Cienaga, which is not only known to be a quintessential American diner, but is housed in a 1957 Googie architecture by Eldon Davis.
Life in Silver Lake basically centers around Silver Lake Junction, an agglomeration of several cafés, a cheese and a flower store at the crossing of Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, with the main attraction being Intelligentsia, a third wave coffee house with all-hat-wearing* barristas.
After walking around 3rd street and shopping a little too much (like those Keds at Opening Ceremony, or just too many of those cute looking products at Benefit, that all promise great help) we took a break at Joan’s on Third, skipping on the heavy sweet treats at Magnolia’s across the street, and instead went for salad, an artichoke and an egg salad sandwich in this bustling deli.
The quality of this vegan restaurant seems to be no secret, more than once I received the suggestion to eat here and I happily followed.
