The rule is universal — take anything fatty/creamy, fry it, and you will get a party in the mouth. I’m thinking of uni and avocado, mmm. The fried avocado strips at Cafe Flora are gloriously crispy and buttery, so bad yet so good. This place is well-known among vegetarians and I can see why. The menu is creative and goes beyond salads which anyone can toss together at home. I also tried the sesame crusted sunchoke-daikon croquettes with coconut lentils and grilled rapini.

Falafels are a must and pair well with muhammara, a dip made of walnuts, red pepper paste, cumin, garlic and topped with pomegranate. Delicious.
