Cafe Rivva

So I received an email from Cafe Rivva advertising:

Rivva "Veggie Crispy Chicken" & Avocado Sandwich
Heirloom Tomatoes, Romaine Lettuce, Red Onions & Vegenaise (no egg)  

Now how could I pass that up?????  The restaurant also happens to be within walking distance of my office so I decided to hit it up and was not disappointed.  

This sandwich was delicious.  It was a bit messy because the "chicken" was all chopped up and the avocado made it all slippery.  However, it was well worth the messy Veganaise-y fingers.  I suspect that the chicken was Gardein but it was still yummy.  The side salad is also great.  The inclusion of plums was a surprise but a tasty one.

The menu changes every week at Cafe Rivva and it's easy to miss because it's in a shopping center on the second floor, but everyone should check this place out.  I didn't order a smoothie because I was totally broke but next time I go, I definitely want the kale smoothie!  Sounded delicious.

Catch up

As always, I start this post with a chastisement to myself as a bad blogger.  However, I feel like a wedding and honeymoon and getting back into the fold of things are my excuse this time.  I dare you to top that!  So yes, I am officially married to my lady love and have some stuff to blog about.

First, our honeymoon was in Hawaii.  I found one vegan restaurant called Joy's Place pretty close to where we stayed.  I ordered the Veggie Burger Sandwich and it was incredibly tasty.  The patty was homemade with beans, lentils and grains.  I expected it to be mushy but it held up really well.  I also got a kale, spinach, banana avocado smoothie.  Yummmmmm.

Sorry for the picture alignment.  Blogger is not working with me today!

So I will update on some LA restaurants soon!
