Thank you everyone for the congratulatory comments on my new movie! Just wanted to make it clear – I have ZERO intentions of losing any weight. I’m 100% content with my body, I just want to avoid feeling bloated/tired/overstuffed on set, so I’m going to be more conscious of what/how much I’m eating while we’re filming.

Unlike last night, when I totally left the restaurant with a food baby, ready to crash!!!

Flore Vegan Cuisine is a place Abe and I ate at regularly when it first opened, but apparently haven’t been to in almost 2 years, since I have never blogged about it!

We met our friends Aaron and Alissa there; where samples awaited! Alissa wasn’t sure if she’d like Seitan, so she asked the kitchen for a little taste. Good thing, because she wound up not liking the texture (“bouncy”).

I don’t mind it, so I ate the leftovers!

We started off with two orders of sliders as appetizers

Chickpea…

…and mushroom

I had a few bites of each – the mushroom one was hands down the best dish of the evening

Also tasted some of Abe’s Tempeh Reuben, which was good, but I prefer Locali’s version

For my entree I ordered the soup + sandwich combo

1/2 a Tempeh Tu-No Melt, with cashew cheese and daikon sprouts

Cup of the daily special – Roasted Broccoli

Plus I scored the balsamic-dressed greens which came with the sliders as a side salad

Nothing worthy of my BVSLA list, but it’s pretty solid hippie food. (Or hipster, I should say, since this is Silver Lake.)

The dessert case was a bit overwhelming, so we asked the waiter for suggestions

Very happy with what we got. I love it when vegan desserts impress!

Lemon Berry

Evenly split

You’d think the two cakes would taste similar, but they were both unique in texture and flavor. And awesome.

We left very full, with leftovers to boot. Hmm…WHY has it been so long since I’ve been back to Flore?!?
