Looking for a Wednesday pick-me-up? I was surprised by how tasty this Smoked Mushroom toast from Tartine was😍🤤 I loved the actual smokey, peppery flavor of these mushrooms combined with the pumpkin seed salsa verde and sambal hot sauce, balanced with a runny egg on top made this lunch more heavenly than I could’ve imagined 😍 Tartine has an extensive all day menu to order from as well as their droolworthy pastries in their case to choose from! #Tartine #TartineBakery #TartineBread #LosAngelesEats #DineLA #DineOutLA #LAFoodies #JujuEatsFood

Happy Fri-YAY! Super happy to share how i’ve been starting my mornings - with a great cup of Wandering Bear Coffee😍 #SPONSORED #AD I have an espresso machine and have been using the Wandering Bear beans to grind fresh shots of espresso to make my iced oat lattes😍 Like look at the crema these beans produce🤩 When i’m dashing out the door, I love the Wandering Bear “straight black” Extra Strong Cold Brew! This is a great option for my friends looking for a strong cold brew, and to my pals who like to adjust their coffee with syrups and milk (no shame in that!). I personally like to add a little bit of simple syrup to this and some ice cubes. But purists, this is really for you! Definitely check out the Wandering Bear Coffee collection - they sell cold brew boxes in a few different flavors like vanilla, caramel, and mocha (pictured); cold brew cartons, single serve cold brews; coffee pods (Keurig friendly); and coffee beans (whole bean, coarse, and drip grind available). Make sure to use my discount code: JUJUEATSFOOD for 10% OFF SITEWIDE😱 the affiliate link in my bio also works too for the discount🤑 @wanderingbearco, #wanderingbearcoffee, #wanderingbear #JujuEatsFood #coffeelover #coffeetime #supportsmallbusiness #drinkmorecoffee

Still daydreaming about the Élephante whipped eggplant dip😍🤤 I went here for brunch but the star was really this dip. Jacob, Tiya and I checked it out and were obsessed with the piping hot pita bread and creamy dip! I tried replicating it at home and it turned out pretty close if I do say so myself🤗 My Whipped Eggplant Version is: Roast 1 Eggplant at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes. Then peel off the skin and put eggplant in the blender with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a dash of salt, 1 juice of a lemon, and like 3 tablespoons of Trader Joe’s Garlic Dip (i’m a garlic girl), or you can alternatively use 2 cloves of garlic. A tablespoon of tahini is also optional! Blend it all up with an ice cube (this is the secret to getting the dip “whipped”). I used the NYTimes “Homemade Pita Bread” recipe for the fresh hot pitas. Enjoy, friends🤗 #ElephanteLA #santamonicabeach #westla #DineLA #brunchLa #EggplantDip #WhippedEggplant #JujuEatsFood #JujuMakesFood

Happy Friday💃 What are your dinner plans this weekend? I loved checking out Gran Caffe L’Aquila with Amelia this week in Philly🍝 (s/o @gracejumb0 for the rec!) Gran Caffe L’Aquila is an Italian market, gelato shop, AND restaurant! The huge thing that sets them apart is that they serve gelato ON TOP of your pasta dishes😱🤩🍨🍝 We both went with our waiter’s rec of the Agnolotti - a Torino style ravioli filled with veal, pork, vegetables, butter sage sauce, and topped with a black and white truffle gelato😍🤤 The way to eat this dish is to first have a small bite of the gelato to taste it in its pure form BEFORE mixing it into the dish. This was an out of body experience, so delicious with heavy accents of truffle in the sauce and the warm soupy insides of the agnolotti! I’ll definitely be back😍 For dessert, I went with a scoop of the Bacio gelato - a hazelnutty chocolate gelato🍫🌰 This spot has great prices - about $20 and under for a fresh pasta dish! Definitely a place you gotta check out if you haven’t been yet! Vax cards required💉 Outdoor seating: They have outdoor private sidewalk cubbies for each table - so super covid-safe in my opinion. #GranCaffeLAquila #PhillyItalian #ItalianFood #Agnolotti #TrufflePasta #phillyoutdoordining #JujuEatsFood

Day dreaming of NYC but also praying for everyone’s health🥺 Tim Ho Wan is an affordable Michelin Star dim sum restaurant and I was so excited to be able to try this place out without a line (pro-tip, try to go at weekday lunch time!) I loved getting to eat here and try a couple of things! I had the Deep Fried Eggplant with Shrimp 🍆🍤😍 I also had the steamed rice rolls with minced beef😋 Definitely wish I had gone with more people so I could’ve tried more dishes but I loved the two I tried! Will be back for sure🤩 #TimHoWanUSA #TimHoWan #eeeeeatsnyc #NYCFood #NYEats #JujuEatsFood

Happy Monday and back to regular programming (hopefully!) from me haha Lots of posts backlogged, but sharing this amazing meal my dad and I had at Carousel in LA! Carousel is a Lebanese & Middle Eastern restaurant with 2 locations - one in Glendale and one in East Hollywood. We got a bunch of dishes and shared them. My personal favorite is the Mantee - they’re bite-sized meat pies that are topped with yogurt and tomato sauce😍😛 We also had the Basterma Rkaat as an app - they’re cheese and meat stuffed crispy thin filo dough rolls (like a spring roll). Lastly, we shared the Lamb Shish kebab entree because lamb is our favorite! The dish came with bulgar pilaf, steamed veggies, broiled tomatoes, peppers, onion-parsley mix, seasoned pita and pickled turnips. Definitely check out this spot for some delish Middle Eastern food😋 #LebaneseFood #MiddleEasternFood #ArmenianFood #LosAngelesFood #DineLA #LosAngelesfoodie #SocalPulse #JujuEatsFood

Where’s your first brunch spot of the New Year? 🍳🥓🥚 &Waffles is one of my new faves thanks to one star telling me this is her fave spot for chicken and waffles😍😋 I tried the Cajun fried chicken and waffles 🧇😛 I loved the kick and flavor of their juicy fried chicken!! The waffles are perfectly light and crunchy and served with some powdered sugar, butter, and fresh strawberries 🍓 I also had the special Fatima’s House Iced Coffee ☕️ The iced coffee is such a fun chocolatey indulgence 🥰 Definitely check out &Waffles in North Hollywood or Woodland Hills! Pro-tip: They don’t take reservations but you can add yourself to their Yelp waitlist (in-app) ahead of time. #andwaffles #BrunchLA #DineLA #LosAngelesFoodie #losangelesfood #JujuEatsFood

Happy National Coffee Day🥳☕️ #DrinkJavy Love love love this coffee concentrate by @javy.coffee! It is so convenient especially in the morning when I have those early 6am call times for set. I just add 2-3 teaspoons to my oatmilk and i’m out the door with a quality cup of iced coffee😍 Literally such a lifesaver since the set coffee isn’t usually good😒 This stuff literally makes my day and I love how quickly I can make it and run out the door!

Happy Friday🤗🥳 I loved checking out this completely VEGAN Thai restaurant in Studio City - HOPE Thai. They serve up popular Thai dishes as well as some Mexican, and burgers. They also have lots of options for those that are Gluten-Free. I ordered the Spicy Eggplant dish with a side of sticky rice😛😋 I loved the flavors of this dish and my ability to make it on the spicier side of things🌶🌶 Definitely check this spot out if you’re looking for a great Thai restaurant, vegan food, or a place that offers extensive options for your friends with Celiacs! PS they also have cute outdoor seating! Parking can be a bit of a struggle in Studio City too as a heads up 😬 #HopeOrganicKitchen #studiocityfood #veganlosangeles #glutenfreelosangeles #ThaiFood #EaterLA #thrillistLA #InfatuationLA #DineLA #JujuEatsFood

Day dreaming about travel ✈️ I loved checking out Meet in Paris located in downtown Culver City with Alex! I started with an amazing appetizer of Escargot covered in a garlic cheesy butter, topped with arugula, and a slice of baguette. I love Escargot and definitely think its best served with bread😍 and LOTS of garlic, ofcourse😉 For my main course, I had an amazing Lobster Ravioli in a tomato cream sauce. We finished the meal with the Chocolate Fondant cake which is essentially a French chocolate lava cake😍😛 dreamy and heavenly way to finish a delicious meal! Looking forward to going to Paris and Germany this fall, so please send me any and all recommendations! #MeetinParis #CulverCity #losangelesfood #LAEATS #EaterLA #InfatuationLA #YelpLA #Escargot #Baguette #LavaCake #GlobalEats #JujuEatsFood

🎶 I wanna be like Kanye🎧 Alex and I checked out the ramen spot Kanye was spotted at in DTLA, and honestly, fully exceeded our expectations. Afuri Ramen + Dumpling is known for their Yuzu ramen dishes and dumplings. We got the Yuzu Ratan made with Ratan tare, chicken broth, yuzu, bamboo shoots, chashu pork, sesame, sansho pepper, lemon peel, Korean chili powder, and an on top😍🍜 We also ordered the Tonkotsu Shio with shio tare, pork broth, chashu pork, black garlic oil, green onions, pickled ginger, kikurage mushrooms, sesame, and an egg on top😋 Lastly, we HAD to try their Crispy Pork Gyoza. They were seriously amazing and so crunchy, This is sucha must to your order! Afuri Ramen is in DTLA and the street parking is alittle difficult, but it is definitely worth the trip. Juju musts: Crispy Pork Gyoza, Yuzu Ratan @afuriramen_la #AfuriRamen #afuriramenanddumpling #Yuzu #kanyeloveskanye #RamenLover #YuzuRamen #DineLA #EaterLA #yelpLA #GlobalEats #InfatuationLA #JujuEatsFood

Happy Weekend🥳 I’m SO obsessed with this new coffee shop in Santa Monica called La La Land Kind Cafe😍😋 They seriously have the coolest specialty latte flavors like saffron, french toast, and blue butterfly pea flower as well as CBD lattes😉 I am in love with their Iced Lavender Bloom latte and I add “La La Froth” on top, which is kind of like a cold foam, but when added to this drink - it heightens the lavender flavor even more😍😍😍😍 i’m so obsessed with this place that I went there twice this week, and I don’t even live in Santa Monica🤣 I also had a delicious Ham & Cheese croissant that i’d highly recommend adding to your order. They also have brunch items for a reasonable price (which I find super hard to find in Santa Monica). My friend Nick got the Perfect Latte made with their secret sauce, and it is a lovely hazlenutty drink! My roommate Paula had the Truffle Burrata toast and said it was good too - its definitely gonna be on my order next time I go! Make sure to check out this cute cafe, they have spacious outdoor seating and indoor seating. Curl up with a book, bring your laptop & work, or bring a friend and chat over some great coffee & food🤗 There are La La Land Kind Cafes in Dallas, TX and Santa Monica @lalalandkindcafe #LaLaLandKindCafe #LosAngelesFood #LosAngelesCoffee #CoffeeAddict #caffeinedaily #caffeinefix #coffeelovers #LosAngelesCafe #SantaMonicaFoodie #santamonicafood #MontanaAve #JujuEatsFood

Happy Friday!!! When my family was visiting LA, we were dying to have some Cuban food and tried Versailles😋 This place is amazing with all of the classic Cuban dishes done right😍 My mom grew up in Florida, so our standards are very high for Cuban food, and Versailles did not disappoint!! I ordered the Culetas de Puerco😍😛 which are pork chops marinated in a citrus juice and their garlicky “Mojo” sauce🤪 and onions. The plate also comes with their fried plantains, black beans, and rice😍😍 My parents always order Ropa Vieja - a shredded streak dish in a tomato and wine sauce😋😋 This is sucha solid meal and an authentic Cuban restaurant to check out in LA! @versaillescubanfood #VersaillesCubanRestaurant #CubanFood #CubanFoodLA #EaterLA #InfatuationLA #YelpLA #ThrillistLA #DineLA #JujuEatsFood
