One of my favourite places was Lulu's Californian Bistro. It served some of the most varied and delicious food I have tasted in a while. Take a look at the menus. I was, for once, struck by the choice. They cater for most people's tastes. I was most impressed by the healthy options and the way that they incorporated gluten-free into their menu. They also have a Gluten-Free and a Vegetarian menu.
The first time I went to Lulu's, I had the Chicken Lettuce Wrap, which was chicken in a dark asian soy savoury dressing with chopped water chestnut, mushrooms and green onions, served with whole ice berg lettuce leaves. Light and flavour-some. After sampling this, I had to return, as I wanted to try the Tower of Avocado & Ahi Tuna Tartar. I was not disappointed. It was like a giant sushi without the rice, amazing!
My other favourite was a vegan restaurant called Native Foods. I took a meat-eating friend there for lunch. He even thought he was eating chicken in his club sandwich. He wasn't, as everything was vegan. The "Native" Chicken, Bacon & Avo Club, which contained crunchy herb-crusted "Native" chicken, tofu bacon, avocado, chipotle sauce, romaine, tomato and carrots, served on multi-grain ciabatta. The "Native" chicken is made of plant based proteins such as wheat, soy & pea.It tasted just like free range chicken. Delicious!
