Vegan MoFo 2012: Local Habit!

I'm back for Vegan MoFo!

I had plans to show you pictures of these awesome breakfast burritos I had for lunch, until I found these pictures from my birthday, err...back in july. My family took me to Local Habit (3827 5th Avenue San Diego, CA) and while I was quite nervous because my parents didn't seem to like anything they saw on the menu, I tried to enjoy my time there.

I had the Caramelized Onion and Garlic Oil, Basil, Fresh Tomato, and California Chevre (with almond ricotta instead of Cali chevre) and Sautéed Greens with Julienne Onion and Garlic on the side.

The pizza was good. The ricotta is nice, creamy and nutty, but I kind of missed the ooziness that Daiya lends. I guess they don't longer use it on their vegan pizzas : (

The greens are really garlicky and the onions are perfectly browned. I'm almost sure this side dish has a little vinegar or something acid to give it a boost. I like it because it goes well with the caramelized onions and the dinosaur kale.

The atmosphere was really warm and pride-y : p

We got back to my house in Tijuana to eat some cake!

My boyfriend and I went to Whole Foods before we headed to TJ and this it what they had. I was hoping they had vegan carrot cake, but they didn't, booo!

Anyway, I didn't mind much because it was good : )

I'll post the burrito pictures tomorrow : D

Happy MoFoing!

Among these are Mexican desserts, Mexican restaurants, Mexican drinks, and for specific ingredients and preparations, Mexican food recipes. This section will outline the details involved with Mexican cuisine, a bit about its history and how it has spread across the globe, the various cooking utensils used in its preparation, typical ingredients, and tips for Mexican cooking hopefuls so that they can learn to perfect their craft.
