This summer on my trip to California my boyfriend and I made a quick stop in Los Angeles to visit a friend. Although I was super excited to see our friend TJ I was not impressed by the LA area. The crowds, the lack of parking and the heatwave did not exactly fit my ideal vacation criteria. All of that aside, a girl has got to eat!
We stopped at EVO Kitchen on Sunset Boulevard for lunch. EVO is completely gluten-free friendly and offers a large variety of options. They also have gluten-free beer. Although the pizza looked delicious, I opted for a salad. I would have went back for a second time to try the pizza, but we were in LA for less than 24 hours.
From San Diego to LA, one of my favorite frequent stops was to The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. I loved that they offered almond milk! On Long Island, the only place I can get coffee with almond milk is Dunkin Donuts. In addition to almond milk, they offer gluten-free instant oatmeal. When I’m not traveling I make fresh oatmeal almost every morning for breakfast, so after 5 days of not having oatmeal I was thrilled to find some at The Coffee Bean.
While in LA we stayed at The Line Hotel and I would definitely recommend it to others. The Line is an awesome boutique hotel with an urban feel. I loved how unique it was; like no hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Every room has a huge window with a view of the city. We also got a great price on Expedia. To top it off, we saw a member of Portugal. The Man in the elevator.
