Otarian, Juice Generation, and Caffe Del Mare

We ate at Otarian for lunch today. It was not very satisfying and had the feel of slightly below average airplane food.

It's a new vegetarian place with an emphasis on low carbon emissions. Their menu has the carbon savings compared to the meat version, in kg, next to each item.

We saved about 3 kg of carbon.

I like Energy Kitchen much better. Mabel had hoped to eat at Sacred Chow instead.

To make up for the meal, we went to Taim for smoothies, but the line was out the door.

So we got smoothies at Juice Generation. They were decent, but the best part was finding that they have an orange juice machine!

I've been looking for a place like this for years.

For dinner, it was a balmy night and we went to Caffe Del Mare so that we could sit outside. The best part of the meal was the baked artichoke. There was maybe too much stuffing and it got a bit crumbly towards the middle, but it was like something out of the Pillsbury cookbook.

Colin Huggins was playing in the park again.

We didn't stay to see how he was going to move his piano out of the fountain.
