making vegetables look good in {silver lake}…





I've been attempting to eat more vegetables and salads lately {since cupcake lunches can only take you so far}. So I've been crossing my sweet fingers for a great salad/sandwich place in the neighborhood…and then to my delight…I read about a new location for Food+Lab on Take Sunset right in our neighborhood!

Located on Sunset Blvd, Food+Lab's third location couldn't have come at a better time. The food is fresh, healthy, and really so tasty. My favorite combination so far {which I've now had two days in a row} is the organic chicken arugula salad with edamame, cranberries, and candied pecans topped with their {amazing} house dressing . The homemade lemonade is super fresh, extra concentrated, and not too sweet…and reminds me of my beloved yuzu juice from Japan. Because this new Food+Lab location is on a pretty random part of Sunset, not close to any of the other main hot spots, it's not crazy crowded yet. But I'm pretty sure that soon enough, more people will discover the greatness and it's sure to be a hot spot in its own right.

  1. i definitely need to follow your example! i eat pastry lunches far too often. heck, when i lived in london i’d eat pastry lunches AND dinners somedays. i just love the british style of cake (“sponge”-style) so much… sigh. good thing i walked everywhere, or i would’ve gained 50 pounds!

  2. Tomorrow I’m getting some pummple cake, which should be followed up by an entire week of salad. (This salad is looking good regardless of my poor, hype-driven decision of the week.)

  3. Oh jeez, I just noticed that I spelled it wrong on my post. “Pumpple” cake, a cake/pie hybrid. Maybe I can put some ice cream on top for a dessert trifecta.

  4. i’m so excited they are in our hood now! we hit it up last weekend. please stop spreading the news though so it can be our little secret! soon enough the hoards will take over…

  5. Sounds delish! I’ll have to try it!
    M Cafe, on La Brea and Melrose, is also a great way to eat veggies that are delish.
