It was a long day. I was tired. Hungry. Annoyed. Possibly even bitchy. (Definitely bitchy).
I typed Chipotle into my GPS and let my car drive me to belly bliss. Finally! Chipotle. It was in sight, and I was visualizing that first bite into my veggie bowl oozing of guacamole.
… if only it was that easy.
In Los Angeles, we have this thing called parking. And it’s a bitch.
After circling the parking lot for 20 minutes (damn you, Studio City), I said screw it and left. I continued my food prowl, passed taco bell, almost pulled in, decided not to and continued on my way.
Right as I was about to pound my steering wheel in frustration, I looked at a nearby shopping center and noticed a little vegan restaurant called “veSTATION.” I had recently seen it on Yelp and there it was. Right before my eyes. Right as my stomach reached the “angry” growl.
It was meant to be.
I slammed my breaks and immediately screeched into the parking lot. Cars may have been cut off and curbs may have been hit. It happens.
What do you know… a spot just opened up, and I pulled right in.
Now, the food. Wow. Wow. Wow.
I tried the Roti Curry Dip, Superfoods Salad and Massaman Curry.
Enter — Golden Crisp Banana & Coconut Ice Cream.
This is perfection. I am slobbering over my keyboard as I type this.
veSTATION, I’ll be back (in an Arnold voice, obviously).
