Santa Monica Farmers Market

We spent most part of 4th of July in Santa Monica. We dragged ourselves out of our cozy beds for a suprisingly cold July morning in LA and headed to our first stop – the Santa Monica Farmers Market. The market is open thrice a week – on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The produce was fresh and beautiful. We had a great time sampling the summer bounty of sweet fruits and berries. I have never seen so many different varieties of strawberries before. We finished a basket of ‘Gaviota’ strawberries while walking through the market. They were the juiciest, sweetest strawberries I have ever tasted.
We walked around for a while and then headed to Huckleberry Cafe for lunch and coffee at Cafe Luxxe.

Salt’s Cure

Salt’s Cure gets featured in all the ‘best breakfast/brunch’ lists in Los Angeles. We decided to check out this place on Saturday. It was really good and definitely deserves its spot on all those lists!

We had the ‘potted pig’. It’s pork cooked in its own fat served with crackers, herbs and pickled onions – not to be missed. We also had the 2 X 2 X 2 – that’s 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips & 2 sausages with biscuit and jam. The jam is fresh (it will be a crime to waste it). If you think you don’t need the jam, just try dipping the bacon in it.
And yes, the 2 X 2 X 2 tastes as beautiful as it looks 🙂

Brunch on a lazy Saturday afternoon..

Last Saturday we were at Huckleberry for lunch. Huckleberry is a café/bakery in Santa Monica. It’s a great place to have brunch on a lazy weekend..:).
Amazing food and nice ambience. We reached around 12 and the place was packed.

Check it out if you are in the neighborhood.
We had the bread pudding (not to be missed!!), ‘Green eggs & ham’ and ‘house made brisket sandwich on ciabatta’. I couldn’t take pictures of the food..I will probably do that next time we are there.
