Dinner at Madeline Bistro

Went to a musical performance (or as they put it, a “co-formance”) last night in Hollywood. It was a kundalini yoga event with chanting and mantras and kriyas and it was incredible.   From the opening “Ong Namo” song to the end with “saaaaaaat naaam” it was one of the most uplifting and spiritual events I’ve ever attended.

Snatam Kaur performed, along with Guru Ganesha and special guest Gurmukh from Golden Bridge Yoga.  So much fun and uplifting!!! (left to right in photo: Gurmukh standing, leading a kriya, Guru Ganesha, Snatam, and their percussionist)

Since we’d be in LA, I figured it would be a good opportunity to check out a vegan restaurant in the area, and lucky enough Madeline Bistro wasn’t too far away.  I ordered the Thai Red Curry and Kara got the Deconstructed Gumbo.

I’ve read so many rave reviews about the place and all I can say is that, despite all the highest praise, even that doesn’t do it justice. The entire menu looked incredible. The food was to die for. The atmosphere and staff were friendly and helpful.

Overall, it was one of the best dining experiences I have had in years.
