dineL.A. Restaurant Week for Summer 2020: FLOWER CHILD


The Experience Magazine had a chance to visit a healthy restaurant in Santa Monica “FLOWER CHILD” during dineL.A. week.

This restaurant has a nice seating area inside, unfortunately inside dining is still not allowed in Santa Monica city. Fortunately they have 4 tables in front of the restaurant. And they seem to be using some outdoor tables in the restaurant next door. 


Inside of the restaurant was very clean and they were really concerned about customers’ health. They placed “What we are doing to make your experience safe and soul-satisfying” signs.





Luckily we got one of tables outside, we ordered a great deal dineL.A. menu2 Starters, 2 Entrees, 2 Cookies and 2 drinks for $35! Drinks choices were Iced tea, Lemonade, Glass of Wine or Local beer. 



We ordered Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon for starters. This was very refreshing. I liked the fresh basil on the top. 

For our entrees, we had Mother Earth Bowl and Glow Bowl. I picked Mother Earth Bowl because the picture on the menu looked so good! Mother Earth Bowl ingredients are ancient grains, sweet potato, portobello mushroom, avocado, cucumber, broccoli pesto, charred onion, leafy greens, red pepper miso vinaigrette, hemp seed. Sounds great, right? The taste was great! So many different flavors in one bowl. Sweet potatoes had a little bit of spicy sauce on them. Sweet potatoes and spicy sauce were a good combination! I was amazed by broccoli pesto. I never thought about it. Now I’m dying to make it for myself at home!! This bowl was the bomb! I had the great source of vitamin A, C, D, fiber, protein and minerals.

Ingredients of Glow Bowl are spicy sweet potato noodles, bok choy, zucchine, onions, jalapeno, shiitake mushroom, coconut milk and sunflower butter. I tasted a little of this dish. It tasted like Thai dish. I thought there was peanut butter in it but it wasn’t. If you like Asian flavor, this is the bowl for you!

After I was satisfied with the main meal, the big chocolate chip cookie was waiting for me! This cookie was gluten free. I was so glad to try this cookie, it was very moist, not too heavy, sweet and of course tasty. My drink was flavored iced tea and it was tastier when I was eating with the cookie!

While we were enjoying the meal, a lot of people came to pick up their food. This restaurant offers Take-Out (order online), Curbside To Go Parking and App for rewarding! Their menu clearly shows whether it’s Vegetarian, Vegan or Gluten-Free. 

Why don’t you stop by to try some healthy meals today? It’s very convenient that there is a parking lot across the street! Or order for Takeout!! They even have $46 Bundle family pack (takeout only). Don’t forget to eat a healthy diet to boost your immunity so that you don’t get coronavirus.

Stay safe and healthy!
