Blaze Pizza

restaurant

During the Holiday madness that is The Grove/Farmer’s Market, I’ve found a good place to grab dinner to go, and eat in my jammies at home.

Blaze Pizza is similar to 800 Degrees – or, so I’ve heard, since I haven’t been there.  So I’ll say it’s reminiscent of Chipotle, or ShopHouse.  But for pizza – where you choose your crust…

…toppings…

…and wait for it to be fired up…

…and taken home.

A surprisingly good concept by the Wetzels Pretzels founders – I hear my friend Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son has something to do with it, too.

Oh, Hi Again

travel - vegan

Abe and I had such a tremendous time in Ojai beginning of September, we immediately booked another trip following Thanksgiving, when we could stay a little longer.

This time, we opted for the much more affordable Ojai Rancho Inn.

Julius tagged along, too!

IMG_1673 Our room was comically dark so we spent a lot of time outdoors…

…and explored a few new spots, too.

Hip Vegan Cafe may have one of the best veggie burgers on the planet…

IMG_1714

…made from tempeh, with caramelized onions and vegan cheese.  (My raw salad, above, was stellar too – it included sea veggies and seed pate.)

IMG_1717More salad at Boccali’s – just okay, like the pizza…
IMG_1743

…but I loved the setting!

We also ate at The Farmer and The Cook and Knead Bakery again – both experiences did NOT disappoint.  More pictures of the trip on both Instagram feeds!

SunCafe Organic is one of my favorite vegan restaurants in Los Angeles.  They moved, but just up the street…

…to a bigger space with valet parking (free if you’re picking up for takeout)…

…and a patio.

Dogs welcome!

My favorite vegetarian was my date, of course.

I didn’t have any of the alcoholic stuff…

…but did partake of Grapefruit Sage Kombucha on tap.

(Abe was quite pleased with the craft beers and specialty cocktails.)

All the food was, as usual, wonderful and plentiful!  We wound up taking our entrees home as leftovers…
