I LOVE THIS PLACE.

Randall/Jae/Ruby do, too, and they treated me to a late birthday brunch on Sunday.

I did not go for a sandwich that afternoon, opting for my typical omelet order instead…

…but Jae did.

…more eggs, and Abe’s Vegetarian Reuben and fries – both of which I stole bites of.

Food was so solid.  I want to come back and eat everything on their big, massive menu.

Recipe: Vegan Elvis Sandwich

recipe - sandwich - vegan

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Elvis!  I’m not a superfan by any means, but I have been to Graceland (twice!) and I know what the man likes to eat.

I also know what MY man likes, and it’s not bacon.  This is Phoney Baloney’s Coconut version, which I picked up at Urban Radish and stuffed in Abe’s Chrismukkah Stocking.

You could fry it in butter (or Coconut Oil to keep it vegan) but we found this to be pretty tasty straight up.  Or, as Abe described: “Weird but good.”

If you’ve watched the BuzzFeed Sandwiches Around the World video, you know who had my favorite…

La China Poblana specializes in Cemitas – a Mexican sandwich from Puebla…

DSCN6664 …daily fresh bread, meat of your choice (I ordered Milaneza – fried steak), avocado, white and Oaxacan cheese, onion, jalapeño – I hope they’ll make a vegetarian version for Abe because I’m already planning my next pilgrimage to Boyle Heights.

Here’s the unedited clip of my initial reaction – as you can see, I couldn’t shut up.
