Flore Vegan Cuisine

Dinner at Flore Vegan Cuisine in Silver Lake, Los Angeles.

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 Flore Vegan Cuisine restaurant with a food baby, ready to crash!!!

FloreĀ 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.

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!

Strawberry Shortcake…

…Lemon Berry cake.

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?!?

    Love love love the way you blog about food. I’m inspired. It goes to show that healthy eating does wonders to your body on its own.

    Looks delicious, I might have to try it when I visit LA! And I might actually be moving to LA in the coming months! Do you like living there? I hung out in the Silver Lake area quite a bit last time I was there — went to Red Lion Tavern with some friends. We also went to a good restaurant in the area for brunch, but I’m blanking on the name….

    I’m a new reader/blogger, and I just wanted to say congrats on the movie, too! Very exciting!
