Sage Organic Vegan Bistro


And so it continues …

I’ve been trying to blog each day to keep up with all the photos we’ve been taking and all the places we’ve been going, but yesterday I decided not to. So here I am playing a little catch up! We’re all the way up in Oregon now, and it was a beautiful drive through the Redwoods and along the coast!  But first … a little catch up from a few restaurants in Southern CA.

Sage

We didn’t spent a lot of time in LA because of the horrendous traffic in between there and Lake Elsinore (where my friend lives who we were staying with), but one place we ate at was Sage, an “organic vegan bistro”.

Sage is located at 1700 West Sunset Boulevard in LA. Their hours are as follows:

Sun 9am-4pm & 5pm-10pm
Mon-Wed 11am-10pm
Thu-Fri 11am-11pm
Sat 9am-4pm & 5pm-11pm
Brunch:
Sat-Sun 9-4


They have a very extensive menu that includes wonderful desserts, and a dipping cabinet full of KindKreme ice cream.

Our dinners started out with a delicious salad:

I got the French Grain Vegetable Bowl, which is “served with basmati rice, quinoa and lentil with seasonal farmer’s market vegetables”

And Erik opted for the Chipotle Bowl: quinoa, grape tomatoes, chipotle pepper, grilled onions, black beans, sauteed kale, avocado and baby corn topped with pico de gallo, sunflower sprouts and battered, deep fried jalapeƱo and served on an organic corn tortilla served with a side of nacho cheese”

The verdict?

More often than I’d like, I feel like vegan meals out can easily be rather boring, with little thought to presentation of depth of flavor. The kind of meal where you leave feeling as if it was just okay. At Sage, we were pleasantly surprised. Our meals were presented beautifully and weren’t just a bowl of flavorless mush. They were both very flavorful and satisfying. If we lived in LA, I’m sure we would eat here regularly … yum!

We got an ice cream sandwich for dessert, but silly me, I was so anxious to eat it, I didn’t even snap a picture!

More road trip posts coming soon including a look inside our whale watching tour, and more delicious Neapolitan pizza!
