Organic Vegan Mediterranean Food at Fala Bar, West Hollywood

Fala Bar serves up fresh, organic, vegan and gluten free Mediterranean food in West Hollywood. Their ingredients are locally sourced and made to order. With the exception of their pita bread, everything on the menu is or can be made gluten free. The pita sandwiches can be substituted with a cabbage wrap, which is quite tasty albeit rather messy. The food is balanced, fresh, filling and energizing. Add the fact that it's down the street from our temporary work office, it's makes for a good go to lunch spot. 

Baba Plate
This version of baba ghanoush is light and doesn't have a grilled flavor. It came with tahini, Israeli salad, and quinoa tabouli. I added an order of sweet potato falafel's to the plate for an extra $3. The falafel's are light and crunchy with a very subtle spice mix. 

Hummus Plate
The garbanzo hummus plate came with tahini, brussels sprout quinoa salad and quinoa tabouli. There also had a selection of seasonal garnishes for customers to choose from.

Fala Me To KALEifornia
This is one of the most popular items and my go to. You can't see it in the photo, but there is lemony kale at the bottom topped with garbanzo beans, quinoa, purple cabbage, shredded carrots and avocado. There's no dressing for this salad, but all the components add their own distinct flavor that a dressing isn't necessary. 

If you find yourself on this stretch of Melrose Avenue in need of a vegan and organic lunch spot, check out Fala Bar.
