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!
