Visit Gracias Madre in West Hollywood, California

After a cadre of recommendations from business associates while visiting LA it was a must that we visit Gracias Madre in West Hollywood for some delicious Mexican vegan food. The jackfruit tacos were our main choice and came with barbecue jackfruit, cashew cream, pickled cabbage, crispy onions, and black beans. They were absolutely amazing. Additionally, the crowd was eclectic, the vibe super chill, and the music trendy. Enjoy!

Serving both cooked and raw meals, Stuff I Eat ascertains that every meal is comprised of protein, fiber, complex carbs, good fats and vitamins and minerals. I selected a fresh juice and the Nut Burger, which was paired with a salad, baked potatoes and steamed veggies. I knew I shouldn’t have eaten it all, but who knew when I would return. Babett was in the kitchen working her culinary magic as usual and came out to check on me. She was congenial, energetic and ultra friendly. After speaking for a few moments on health and fitness – yes, she loves to run – she stated her age and I almost spilled my green juice. “Sixty what,” I shouted!
