My name is Brittany. By day, I am an assistant in Los Angeles, which basically makes me a Hollywood slave. By night, I live with my beautiful girlfriend and our two cats. I have recently decided to become vegan...err mostly vegan. I'm not ready to give up sushi yet but we shall see how this lifelong experiment goes!

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.
