Before my friend Sara and I flew up to San Jose for the USC Vs Stanford football game we checked out the vegan restaurant Stuff I Eat. It is located a few miles away from the airport in the city of Inglewood, a food desert. I have been wanting to try it ever since my friend Jaya told me about it several months ago. I was very excited to support a local business that is providing high quality plant based food to a community living in a food desert.
Sara and I split the Sumthin-Sumthin platter (wild and black rice, seasoned tofu, and black beans, topped with sie sauce, tomatoes, corn guacamole, a scoop of carrot un-tuna, and 2 corn tortilla shells) and a piece of Sweet Potato Pie.
I was very impressed by everything aside from carrot un-tuna which I found to have a strong vinegar taste. The sweet potato pie, fortunately, was made with only maple syrup as sweetener. The pie had a thin buckwheat flour crust and had almost a custard like consistency. I am going to make it a point to eat at Stuff I Eat again soon and recommend it to people looking for a place to eat near the airport!
