Still Loving Bright Star in Rancho Cucamonga!

Earlier this month, after a whirlwind weekend in San Francisco, my mom picked me up from Ontario airport. Before I left for Northern California, she mentioned us going to Bright Star in Rancho Cucamonga before the hour drive back to Temecula. What fun! I love Bright Star, and looked forward to our lunch date the entire morning of my departure from SF. It was bittersweet to leave the Bay Area, not knowing when I'd be back to the region I'd grown up in, the place where I had lived in for the last four and a half years of my adult life. (There were definitely parts of me that could not wait to get out and move on!)

We ordered a "shrimp" tempura basket. My mom still talks about how delicious the tempura batter was.

I had the orange "chicken" lunch. It's my go-to (all two times I've been). 

My mom got pad Thai with soy chicken. I'm pretty sure she was into it. 

After lunch we went to Viva La Vegan. It was a great afternoon. THANK YOU, MOM! (She kept commenting on how excited I was in the store. I was trying to keep it together; I guess I just wasn't doing a very good job of that.)

The shelves are alive, with the sound of me squealing through the aisles.

The vegan grocery store goods! 

On a final note, Earth Bistro in Temecula is gross. I recently went there a second time, and it was awful. To each their own, but what were those vegan commenters talking about on my Bright Star post? This last time I went, I'm pretty sure my vegan burger was cooked in the beef fat left behind by the burgers cooked before it. So gross. The Bradleys pride themselves on eating everything thing on their plates, yet my mom and I left half of our lunch behind.

  1. I love Viva La Vegan! It's so nice not to have check ingredients on everything.
