It’s no secret that it’s one of my favorite Los Angeles restaurants!
That’s why last night’s dinner was beyond exhilarating – they invited me to try two “secret” dishes that you won’t find on their menus, but are available at both of their locations for those in-the-know…
Chili Cheese Fries
and The Loaded Burger
The organic fries are covered in Chili Beans and Daiya Cheese
The “Loaded” version is their Big Macro,with the addition of Tempeh Bacon and Fresh Avocado
Comes with a choice of your side – we got their famous Kale, of course
Abe and I split everything evenly
The fries were first to go – they needed to be eaten with a fork.
Everything was hearty and comforting; perfect for those skeptical of the “vegan” or “macrobiotic” label. Loved the extra chew on the burger too:
All of the above were comped to review for the blog, but we couldn’t resist dessert and forked over $7 for this strawberry shortcake
Well worth $3.50/each – creamy, loaded with fruit, and completely naturally sweetened – with no eggs or dairy
As usual, we saw a few celebs there – which you already know if you follow me on twitter:
The last person I mentioned was Lee Gross, one of M Cafe’s consulting chefs, who is in town to launch a few seasonal summer items.
He revealed to me some of the salads that will be in their cases by the end of June, including a few raw options. When asked what inspires his creations, he replied, “Life.”
Lee’s life must be pretty amazing, because his food is beyond words.
