I recently discovered a fun little Korean Bistro in my neighborhood and I wanted to share it with you. They have quite a few vegan options and the food is fairly healthy and a little more upscale then your typical order-at-the-counter place.  It’s called CHAM Korean Bistro and if you are looking for a fun little modern place to have some interesting vegan Korean food, this is the place to go.  I blew it and didn’t get a list of all the vegan options, but the staff is very knowledgeable and they seem to have access to all the ingredients, so you can just ask. Here is a link to the menu and most of the items are self explanatory (but of course there can be hidden animal ingredients, so it’s always good to ask).  I shared a couple of dishes and the food really surprised me.

We started with the Tofu Crouton Salad. There are not actual croutons in the salad, but little fried squares of tofu that were perfectly fried.  It included butter lettuce, a small amount of sautéed kale, spicy sunflower seeds and a black sesame vinaigrette.

We then had the Sizzling Hot Bibimbap with seared tofu which came with white or brown rice perfectly seared on the bottom of the cast iron skillet. It was a really large portion and would be a huge meal for just one person (although we all know that vegans can EAT!). The food was fresh and prepared well and even though I was full, it was hard to stop eating.

The other plus to this restaurant is that they offer wine and beer. Gotta love that. So, next time you are in Pasadena and looking for something a little bit different than your “usual”, try CHAM.

Linea in Black: Clutch Style

Just in time for Spring comes this flirty floral mini messenger bag! The Linea Vegan Handbag is blooming with style and features a faux leather exterior and messenger strap.  This fun and functional bag can transform into a clutch when you add the additional small strap.  Clip both ends of the strap to one side and it transforms again into a wristlet!

Being both versatile and feminine without being overly dressy, it’s the perfect all day, everyday bag.  Wear it out to the market, messenger style, during the day and carry it to your favorite vegan restaurant as a clutch later that evening.  Finish the night at your favorite wine bar with a summery dress and the Linea carried as a wristlet.

Inside you’ll find a zippered pocket and open pouch pocket to store your cell phone and cruelty free cosmetics.  A slim vegan card case would pair pefectly with this compact vegan handbag.  The Linea comes in fuchsia pink, lemon yellow or bold black and retails for $39.00.
