One of my favorite parts of living in a city is the diversity of cuisine. I love asian, indian, japanese and really, anything ethnic. I love spicy foods, trying new things and places. Since I moved to LA a year and a half ago, I've done plenty of exploring and I've now I have a bunch of favorite places. For all of our LA friends, these are a must try! For anyone else, a perfect reason to come visit! 

Samosa House


Cheap, casual and delicious. All of their entrees are vegetarian and mostly vegan. They have two locations, and the one on Washington & Sepulveda near me has an awesome community seating space and a little grocery with fun Indian ingredients and spices. 


Tara's Himalayan


This place is much like Indian, but better, spicier. I love the vegetable korma and the spinach naan. The yak chili is a must try, but not as easy on the tummy, as you might imagine.




This place might be my ultimate favorite. Farm to table idea with a lovely staff, perfect portions and a nice vibe. I love to sit at the bar with a nice glass of wine & some grilled bread.



Sage is a vegan delight with delicious craft beers. There's a location in Echo Park, and one that just opened on near Sepulveda and Venice with a fun little beer garden. I heard they recently added buffalo cauliflower to the menu, so I'm anxious to try it.


Mohawk Bend


The best buffalo cauliflower, ever. And delicious beer. And amazing atmosphere; the space is a renovated theatre. Definitely go here.


Nong La


If you're a fan of bahn mi, don't ask questions, just go here. YUM!!!

Hi Ladies, 

Let's talk about dealbreakers. You know, those peeves and irks you just can't let go of... We all have them. Some shallow, others not, but all very much important. The goal of finding a mate, is sticking withthem for a long time- so if there's something you can't stand... it's best to avoid it. Keep looking, because your perfect dealbreaker-free man is out there somewhere!

Here are some of my dealbreakers: 

White sock & dress shoes. I had a piano teacher growing up that did this all the time and it drove me crazy even at 8 years young. It's something I just don't think I'll be able to let go of. Dealbreaker!

Cats. I understand there's a lot of cat lovers out there, but I'm not one of them. Too much hair, and the whole poop inside deal makes me incredibly uncomfortable.

Too much hair gel. While this might seem shallow, any guy using loads of gel is caring too vain for me. I like a man who can look just as good with a full beard or a clean shave.

Gym rat. I like my men active, but when I see signs of gym rat, I run. It's all about balance for me and dating a gym rat would really shame me out of too many girl scout cookies- I can't be having that.

Smart cars. I'm sorry, but they're just too small for a real man. 

What are some of your personal dealbreakers? Comment below!

We've got another awesome guest blogger for you! Introducing Laura- profile coming soon!!! 

Hello Blowfish Blog readers! This is Laura from Roots & Feathers, and I am so excited to debut my blogging here with a little festival fashion inspiration. Today I am headed up to Willie Nelson's ranch for the Heartbreaker Banquet and I am so ready for a day off with some good music in the heart of Texas. Of course, as a self adornment lover, I'm looking forward to people watching too!

I could put together a million different outfits for something like this! It's been so much fun rummaging through my closet to pick out what I am going to wear, which is something similar to what you see above.

It's been a beautiful week in sunny SoCal. We really can't complain about temps in the mid 70s and plenty of sunshine. Around the office, we've been having tons of fun trying out our new spring styles. There's something really wonderful about slipping back into flats and sandals again!

Since we know not everyone is basking in the warmth yet, we thought we'd have a little fun that anyone can join in on today! Guess the name of the shoe in the picture and our location and you could win a free pair of your choice!


Good luck! We'll announce the winner on Monday!



Hi Debra! Congrats you're the winner! Please contact us at

Always love your shoes. Just an FYI on the description of 'Dame.' The word for 'wear' is spelled 'where.' The teacher in me spotted it. Being old school spelling is something one learned without depending on spell check. The spring collection is lovely. Lee

Hmmm. Well, the shoes are some charming Gadzooks in Linen. I'm pretty sure the place is Marina Del Rey, possibly right around the California Yacht Club area. *fingers crossed*
