Flore: Take 2…

Edamame Salad

So the last time I went to Flore I was super impressed so I decided to head there today for a little lunch:) Flore is a fantastic little place in Silverlake serving up a delicious vegan menu and a crazy dessert case! Today I went in for a salad.. I had a salad last time that was killer, so I tried a different one today! I started off with one of there cold

Mediterranean Salad

prepared salads “Edamame Salad” ($3.50) Shelled Edamame Beans flavored with Dill and fresh Peppers. YUM- I love me some edamame and this salad is super yummy. So fresh! For my entree I got the ” Mediterranean Salad” ($9.95) A bed of Mixed Greens topped with Quinoa Tabouli, Tomato, Cucumber,

Wheat Free Chocolate Cupcake

Kalamata Olives ( I subbed for Soy Sausage), Daikon Sprouts & Hummus. Served with a Balsamic Vinaigrette. This salad was huge! I love that Flore puts so many fresh vegetables into their salads!! It had a great portion of quinoa so if your a quinoa person like myself this is the salad for you!! A  tangy delightful dressing made

YUM

this thing killer! MHM. I have to admit that while the food at Flore is amazing my favorite thing about eating here is the dessert..Today I got the “ Wheat Free Chocolate Cupcake” ($3.75) Wheat Free Vegan Chocolate Batter with Chocolate Chips and a Creamy Vanilla Frosting. OH MY WORD this is one of the most delicious cupcakes I’ve ever had!! I don’t even have words to describe how tasty this was, you just have to try it for yourself;) Once again a successful meal at Flore. Keep it healthy all the time kiddos!

Flore..amore’ :)

Flore: Silverlake

OK so I feel like everytime I try a new vegan place in California I say it’s my favorite, but they all are SO AMAZING ..they have all become favorites in their own way! Each place is different and the *best* in it’s own unique way:) Flore is most assuredly a new favorite…Flore is located in Los Angeles ( Silverlake area)

Crispy Kale: Killer!

and has a fantastic menu..Great breakfast items, some unique appetizers, kid’s menu, sandwiches/wraps, salads, burgers, pizza, mexican food, and a

The Salad.. THE salad indeed;)

RIDICULOUS dessert case ( oh yeah). The atmosphere gives a great ‘place to hang out’ feel. The staff is friendly and helpful and recommended some great things! We decided to go with an appetizer our waiter recommended( glad we did to) the ” Crispy Kale($6.95) {wheat and gluten free} Fresh Kale cooked on a seasoned flat until it

Seitan Quesadilla

is crispy around the edges served with Orange & Lemon Slices. I have to admit I kind of assumed that it would be a boring plate of kale but the way it is cooked gives it this amazing flavor that’s hard to describe, really spectacular! Going with the green theme me and my mom decided to split “The Salad” ($10.95) {wheat &

Cake= "Big Plate"

gluten free} Bed of Mixed Greens with Tofu Egg Salad, Roasted Beets, Edamame Salad, Carrot, Tomato, Avocado, Baked Tofu ( we subbed for Grilled Seitan), Daikon Sprout. Served with Hummus and Vinaigrette. This salad is crazy good. I mean you give a little sample of each of the cold salads they offer with some amazing grilled

AMAZING!

seitan.. This is one of the greatest salads ever created.. I mean such a simple title { “The Salad”} but such complex ingredients! nom, nom. We also got the “ Southwestern Seitan Quesadilla ($8.95) Whole Wheat Quesadilla of Cashew Cheese, Seasoned Seitan, Tomato & Shredded Lettuce served with Cilantro Cream, Pico De Gallo & Daikon Sprouts. *Best* quesadilla I have ever eaten. HUGE portion for such a low price!! Full of juicy grilled seitan and fresh veggies.. incredible my friends really. NOW onto the killer.. They have a crazy bakery case full of cupcakes, cakes, cheesecakes, pure eye candy.. and the second we walked in my mom had her eye on a certain something in the case..which is what we ended up going with! “Chocolate Strawberry Cake” ($5.75) Layers of Chocolate Cake filled with a Vanilla Frosting and Strawberries. THIS THING WAS overwhelmingly good tasting! I don’t even have enough words to describe the taste.. we specifically asked for the big piece -because it looked so yummy .. so they put it on a plate and wrote ” big plate” on it with ‘chocolate sauce’.. funny boys;)  Really if you eat one thing while your in LA make it this cake- you won’t be sorry. Flore is such a great place- you should definitely check it out!! Keep it clean and delicious!
