Chic Eats- Forage

posted by on 2014.04.08, under Chic Eats, LIFESTYLE














If I could eat at one place ever single day that would be Forage. It’s one of those hidden gems I spotted on the corner of my eye while driving down Sunset Blvd in Silver lake  few months ago, and ever since then i’ve been a regular. What keeps bringing me back to Forage is their selection of healthy yet tasty dishes that are organically & locally sourced. They use seasonal fruits & veggies from their local farmers market , so their dishes vary from time to time. Although i’m not vegan I do have a lot of friends that are, so i’m always looking for locations that have great vegan options to brunch at.

So those that are looking to visit Forage sometime soon I highly recommend their  mac n cheese and pork belly sandwich that they are known for,  but those of you who are looking for lighter & healthier options you should try what I ate above. Their salmon bowl which includes jasmine rice, shoyu radish, garlic kale, poached egg, and their to die for secret sauce. I also ordered the fresh beet & grapefruit salad which happened to be the perfect pairing with their salmon bowl.

I was running  in and out of meetings on this day, and was not planning to make a stop at Forage , but decided to take some outfit photos while I was at it. I paired this breezy blouse with my favorite pair of distressed denim for the perfect downtown sophisticated look. Not too dressy, but not too casual..that’s how I like to dress on a daily basis. Unfortunately after wearing these jeans one too many times, i’m sad to announce that their time has finally come to an end. The other day as I was getting dressed my foot got stuck in  one of the holes and I ended up ripping the entire bottom half of the jean. *sigh* Maybe I will turn them into distressed denim short (obsessed with THESE by the way) , I can’t seem to let go of them quite yet!

Anyways I highly recommend on trying out Forage if you are ever  in the downtown/ Silver Lake area! Also please let me know if you would like to continue to see more Chic Eats here on the blog! Just in case you missed my  last Chic Eats on my weekly coffee & flower shop routine HERE and the chicken soup that saved my soul and my flu HERE.

In normal, simple lists where single words are only separated by commas, semicolons need not be used. But when the series is more complicated, the semicolon helps to break up the items in a list and make the sentence easier to understand. Read this example:.

I have never liked it when ripped jeans show a lot of your knee, I think it just makes the jeans more trashy & it just looks like you fell on you knees and they ripped and also for that reason ( they rip easily ). I want a clean cut holes with some white fabric stings over them, clean and simple.

Wow would definitely want to try this cafe! I am always on the look for vegan options. Not a vegan but would love to try for healthier cafe. It seems to me that LA is really hard to hunt down vegan restaurants. I would love to know if you know any good ones in LA! Thanks
