I convinced Eric to join me when we got into town on Saturday night at a raw restaurant that I have heard a TON about and follow in Instagram. It's located in Santa Monica and is called M.A.K.E. Oh my lord, this place was off the hook! I figured since I was there I would take full advantage and participated in a 7 course tasting. It was fantastic! Such a wonderful way to sample a variety of menu items. One of my favorites was by far the potstickers. They were absolutely to die for and if I went back I would order these again hands down!
The final dish that rocked my socks off was the dessert.
A churro ice cream with chocolate ganache. Ugh, I am drooling right now just thinking about it! So many times I think people hear that I like to eat raw and think that I must really be deprived but when you are eating food like this it is the exact opposite! I hope to one day have a dehydrator so I can expand the raw food I can make at home!
The following morning I woke up and took Eric's bike for a ride. I found a local juice shop, got a fresh juice and then headed to the beach. I sat in this very spot for at least an hour! It was so nice to just relax, listen to the waves come in and out and not have a care in the world.
Since I have never been to this area of SoCal I took my time going down the Venice boardwalk and taking in all the sites. Boy are there some freaky sites on that boardwalk!
Overall, it was such a nice quick trip. Good company, good food and good relaxtion!!
