Get Eggcited!

With a short and sweet eggcentric menu, Eggslut is a must if you’re all about that #yolklife. Located in the Grand Central Market, they’re dedication to eggs is impressive. From fried, scrambled, boiled and coddled, everything is focused on next level comfort food. Our recommendation? The slut, of course – a coddled egg over a smooth potato puree in a glass jar served with slices of baguette. Mix it up and dunk it in! PS – There tends to be a line, but it moves pretty fast so don’t get...See More

Suncafe- The Sunnier Side of the Vegetarian World

For vegetarians/vegans, sometimes the veggie options tend to be a bit bland comparatively to everyone else's options. Suncafe is a haven for those bored of the 1-2 veggie options on a menu. Serving both raw and vegan-cooked food, and making almost everything from scratch, this place offers Valley dwellers healthy lunch and dinner options served inside or outside (both really nice!) Some options include burgers made with sunflower seeds, BLTs with tempeh bacon, and zucchini lasagna. It can be...See More

Versy Vocal: Raves, the chicken or the egg of drug culture?

Nocturnal Wonderland, a three-day electronic music festival in San Bernardino didn't end up well this Labor Day Weekend. The numbers speak for itself: in a 67,000 people crowd, over than 400 were arrested and five hospitalized. Why arrested? Reasons range from drug possession, drug sales, assault and battery, being under the influence, to this one special case where the person was arrested for "indecent exposure". What happened brought to attention a new discussion on whether those raves...See More

The Historic French Dip Sandwich

If you don’t know Philippe you’re missing a delicious nostalgic experience. Famous as the Home of the French Dip Sandwich since 1908 and only one block north of the Union Depot Train Station. Complete with sawdust on the floor, paper plates, and communal tables, it seems like the look hasn't changed for over 50 years. Kinda like being in a “film noir” trailer. Choose between roasted beef, roasted pork, leg of lamb, oven-roasted turkey or ham sandwiches. They’re served on a fresh French roll...See More

Versy Vocal: Downtown Ghost Town LA

They’re going to have to reshoot the postcard picture of downtown LA as the neighborhood is being completely changed, mostly by Chinese investors. With so much major construction in DTLA, and units being sold so fast, locals are worried about who the buyers are. Apparently, most of them are absentee owners that have no interest in having LA as their primary residence...which means they wouldn't live, shop or support in any way the surrounding community. Yes, Chinese buyers are GREAT for the...See More
