Tales from my travels: Finally, after hours of heavy city traffic we made it to Hollywood Boulevard. We left the car in a public parking and had lunch at a cute sandwich shop that was right by the parking. It is apparently a chain and have several locations in Los Angeles. It was my type of place, boasting fresh and healthy options as well as local and organic produce. They serve brunch as well as lunch and dinner. As we ordered our food we couldn’t help drooling over all the desserts displayed ostentatiously by the cashiers. They have salads, sandwiches, soups, wraps and even pizzas as well as protein shakes and juices. We sat outside to enjoy the summer breeze. I had the Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Pizza while my mom went for the Wild Mushroom and Truffle Pizza. They are vegetarian- and vegan-friendly. We later couldn’t resist ordering some desserts. My mom had a berry tartelette while I ordered a mini Vanilla Bean and Raspberry Bundt Cake. As we indulged in our desserts, Juliette Lewis came in with a couple of men and sat two tables away from us. My L.A. dream came true: I saw a celebrity. Finally, we set off to trek the Walk of Fame.
