Currently Lunching at – LA Edition {Akasha}

 

{The Bright & Sunny entry to Akasha evokes a welcoming vibe. Once inside, the Front Room serves as a casual Coffee Bar/Bakery.}

{Once you enter the main Restaurant, Rustic Charm & Industrial Touches abound. The Wine selection, as you can see, is quite impressive.}

{These two happy chefs were hard at work when I came by to snap some pictures…}

{Look, that’s my Lunch Order ticket on the line! Better get to it, chefs – I’m hungry!}

{First up, the incredibly fresh Grilled Chile Shrimp Salad. Tossed with Avocado, Cucumber, Feta, and Romaine in a Lemon Vinaigrette.}

{Fresh, fresh, fresh!}

{The Niman Ranch Beef Burger came out perfectly cooked & juicy. }

{The Simple Cookie Platter completely hit the spot! Perfectly soft & chewy Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, and Ginger Snap delights.}

Akasha Richmond (Michael Jackson’s former private chef) truly created something unique when she opened her namesake restaurant in Culver City’s historic Hull building in 2008. Her organic, sustainable & farm-fresh approach to cooking is impressive and not to mention – delicious. Akasha is always one of my first stops for lunch or dinner when I visit Los Angeles. Try it for yourself sometime, you’ll see what I mean!

      Investing in a good camera is a great way to start! Aside from that, lighting is the most important…always take pictures where there’s good natural light!
