Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I LOVE food and discovering new and fabulous places to grab a delicious meal. About a month ago I got together with a good friend at one of West Hollywoods new and trending lunch spots, Carrera Cafe. Located on the corner of Melrose Avenue and Harper Avenue, this cafe offers amazingly fresh foods that are good for any mood and anyone. The open and airy space is so lovely with huge windows with views of the ever buzzing Melrose Avenue and that famous “pink wall” that has been the backdrop to just about every blogger and instagrammer out there.
It only seemed like the obvious choice that my very first meal at Carrera Cafe had to be their signature salad, appropriately named “Carrera Salad”: WARM CAJUN CHICKEN, FRESH MOZZARELLA, SLICED HEIRLOOM TOMATOES, TOPPED WITH AVOCADOS ON A BED OF MIXED GREENS IN A BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE DRESSING. My friend ordered the “Mango Salmon Salad”, it looked absolutely amazing and I must definitely try that one out next time I’m in the area. I loved how simple their menu was, making it fairly easy to make a good decision without getting that overwhelming feeling when you find yourself sitting in front of a daunting and never ending list of menu choices. Choose from one of their fresh and delicious salads or sandwiches, they also offer some great sides and yummy pastries. Don’t forget to grab a cup of their signature coffee drinks on your way out!
