Early in the week, John and I stopped by Mendocino Farms for quick bite before some grocery shopping.
The new restaurant on Fairfax and Third calls itself a "sandwich market" but they have some pretty awesome salads, too.
I got the Market Roasted Vegetable Salad: no cheese sub avocado.
John got the Save Drake Farm Salad: no beets.
Not only does Mendocino Farms promote eating seasonally and locally, but they have so many fun vegan options to choose from; things like Vegan Shawarma and Vegan BBQ Torta. The staff is also super nice: friendly, helpful and very generous with samples of the daily specials. I heart you Mendocino Farms.
P.S. Mendocino Farms is right next store to a brand new Trader Joe's (perfect for all you multitaskers out there).
