Menu Hacking : M Street Kitchen


M Street Kitchen is a newer restaurant in Santa Monica that features organic and farmer's market veggies.  "Organic" & "farmers market" veggies are always good key words for a seasoned menu hacker to hone in upon.   There is a chance they won't murder you or your veggies.  We opted for the veggie tacos and had our server ask the chef if the beans and rice where oil free and if there was a veggie they could steam for us.  We ended up with the above feast.  Salsa, steamed broccolini, beans, rice, lettuce, tomato and HOT fresh made corn tortillas to wrap them all up in!  This all went really well with beer & K tried their house made sangria.  Eating out healthy is always possible, chefs don't always have to be instruments of fork and knife assisted suicide.

M Street Kitchen is wildly popular and reservations are wise any night of the week.  The atmosphere and service are top notch.  If you go w/o a reservation you can always try to sit and order at the bar!

Thanks never heard of that place and I work in/for Santa Monica! I'm curious about your banner ad here though...is it for lamb? That seems like an odd choice for vegan bloggers. While I know ads sure help cover costs...this definitely will cause more issues than in worth for you in my opinion. Just a share because I met you at the Vegan Drinks meetup last night and came here to check out your blog after!

Hey, we can only block those ads once we find out. I have general google rules to keep unethical advertisers off our site, but we only get paid if people click, so lamb ads that slip by our filters won't appear for long since hopefully no one looking at our site will click on them! Also, most ads you see these days are following you from sites you've already been on, so you might want to check on who else is using your computer!

That looks way better than what I got! Instead of broccolini, mine was just bell peppers and 2 pieces of squash. Not worthy of the title "Veggie Tacos." For $13 would not get again!

We've done it twice now with equal success! Right down the street is Library Ale House where you can pull off the same meal with sides for a lot less!
