I love the food in my city just about as much as I love the weather. I love how many non-traditional options we have in our cuisine, the plethora of vegetarian meals, but also how delicious food “on the go” can be here. Erewhon, or “nowhere” spelled backwards (sort of!), is a local natural grocery store that have 4 locations in LA, but I frequent the one in my neighborhood near the beach. I used to go to Abbot Kinney Blvd for the restaurants, but now I tend to head to the end of the strip of restaurants and get delicious food to go.
I like to eat and support local businesses, so I make Erewhon my first stop before Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. The tonic and juice bar is my favorite – I particularly love the Green Goddess smoothie. I recently tried the Organic Kung Pao Cauliflower from the deli and was blown away by it… I love when we vegetarians get to try a plant based variation on a popular dish! Eat in or take it to go and eat it by the beach just 5 minutes away!
