We have an order of the Spaghetti Bacon Omelette. The omelette is layered over the spaghetti completely covering it in the initial presentation of the random meal. The spaghetti is full of flavor as it is actually pan fried to infuse the flavor of the sauce into the actual spaghetti noodles. A side of wonderfully fantastic freshly baked bread completes this random meal.
Found at Spoon House in Gardena, California.

When I started my #leafyresolution, this place was the first thing on my mind. I laugh because there was this funny commercial where the wife or girlfriend packed some veggie burgers for a tailgating event and it was made of Quinoa. Quinoa may be the next big thing after chipotle. Everything here is made of veggies including the chicken or Chickin'. The Chickin' is made from soybeans, wheat and peas. Well, I finally went for a very leafy random meal of the day. We have the Thai Chickin' Entrée Salad. This salad starts with the soy based grilled Chickin' and then we toss in the quinoa. We then add romaine lettuce, cabbage, corn salsa and mandarin oranges. We finish by sprinkling on green onions, sesame seeds, cilantro and crispy wonton strips. A side of spicy Thai dressing completes this random meal.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the number five combo, the Pastrami Sandwich Combo. The funny thing about this random meal was that my coworker made us hungry talking about food at 9:30 in the morning. Any plans of my #leafyresolution when out the window by 10. The combo comes with a fantastic portion of a pastrami sandwich, fries and a soda. Yum...

We have the Capastrami sandwich for our random meal of the day. This sandwich is about the balance between the different ingredients and how they all blend together to become a fantastic combination. The Capastrami starts with hot pastrami and topped with a layer of melted Swiss cheese for the savory portion. We then add Russian dressing and cole slaw to the sandwich. The combination together just makes perfect sense when you take the first bite. You will be hooked.
Found at Capriotti's Sandwich Shop in Torrance, California.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Beef Roll. The beef roll was on Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential Restaurants list but that was in the past. The list is now renamed LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants and is more of a collaborative effort. With change the list moves forward but that did not stop me from trying this item that I had my eye on for years now. The beef roll starts with a flaky Chinese pancake stuffed with cilantro, long-braised beef and a special sweet been sauce. The balance of the ingredients was off for my taste buds but not for the packed hungry crowd around me. It seemed like every other table had an order of the beef roll. I believe that I am now at this random point in time, under 1000 yelp bookmarks of restaurants to go...

The funny thing about this random meal of the day was that I actually had all the intentions to eat a bit healthy but looked up the wrong menu from another restaurant. I had to improvise with my choice so that leads us to today's random meal of Crab Cake & Tempura. I think sometimes it just works out for you.
