Power Pancake Lunch

My schedule this week is getting bonkers!!! I spent all morning cleaning, then hopped in the car and drove to the Valley for a lunch meeting at Hugo’s

I’ve been to the West Hollywood restaurant a few times, but this was my first time at the Studio City location

It was also my first time eating there when they actually serve their famous pancakes (before 4pm)

My dining companion Jennifer is gluten-free, and we decided to share:

When we couldn’t decide between all the pancake options, the waiter told us we could split the order!

Both were STELLAR – thick, fluffy, moist, and full of flavor. This was the roasted pineapple coconut…

…we both preferred the Almond Energy one a little bit more:

(Next time, I’m going to try the Pumpkin!)

We also shared a large order of the Beet Quinoa Salad – I had my half without Gorgonzola Cheese so they brought it out on the side

This was an amazing dish as well – sweet cooked beets, scallions, and fresh herbs tossed with walnuts in a sherry vinaigrette. The finely chopped veggies made all the difference!

I believe everything I ate was vegan too? (Speaking of which, don’t forget to enter the Brody’s Bakery Cupcake Giveaway!!!)

    I was just watching Entourage this morning and they kept saying The Valley. I was wondering what that meant but now I don’t even care. All I know is I want to go there and eat those pancakes! 🙂

    Oh the pancakes looks so good! I have never tried quinoa, but it’s on my list to try! I love beets so that must be a good combination!
