Falafel Arax – Los Angeles (East Hollywood)

Falafel Arax

Before diving into the best dishes of 2014 for my annual roundup, I have one final restaurant to review: Falafel Arax.

Falafel-Arax - East Hollywood - Los Angeles

The Astronomer, my mom, and I made our way here for dinner while Baby Girl was still stuck in the hospital. While we would’ve preferred to bring our sweetie home straightaway, we couldn’t have asked for better dining options around the hospital. We’re all about the silver lining around here.

{swoon} The Breakfast Pretzel at Field Trip

Breakfast Pretzel from Field Trip

I had an intense craving for soft pretzels this past weekend while shopping at the mall. Since I’m not running at all these days due to the growing little one requiring most of my mojo, I resisted the smell of buttery goodness emanating from dear Auntie Anne’s. Still, the thought of soft pretzels, served warm and tender from the oven, lingered…
