Gracias Madre

Let me start by saying that I am a carnivore… I love meat! I eat vegetarian at times, but the thought of life without cheese is more than I can bear. So when I was told about the vegan brunch at Gracias Madre, in West Hollywood, I was skeptical, to say the least. How very “California hippy chic”, I thought to myself. But being the adventurer I like to pride myself in being, I tried it.

When I entered I was very impressed by the ambiance. A very crisp and clean mediterranean decor with touches of authentic Mexican details. But, the outside dining is recommended. The patio is enchanting.

The menu includes Mexican plates such as chilaquiles, tofu ranchero scramble, breakfast torta and chimichangas, and traditional brunch fare such as homemade biscuits and warm lemon scones. They are most famous for their french toast (you wouldn’t even know that it’s gluten free and vegan) and house Madre granola.

In true Hollymom spirit, I (of course) loved the cocktails the most. Although they are known for their amazing array of organic tequilas to choose from, you won’t find any Don Julio or Patron here, I enjoyed the seasonal Sangria. So, I’d have to say “when in Los Angeles do as the Californians do” and eat vegan. Well, at least 1 day of your stay.

Buen Apetito!

  1. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I
    had to ask!

  2. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every
    time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

  5. naturally like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll definitely come
    again again.

  6. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think
    that you should write more on this subject matter, it might not be a
    taboo subject but generally people do not talk about such issues.
