Cool man! Culver City is great! You can grab a bite at MCafe, get the Big Macro that's the signature thing there. I like their ice cream, too. But also you can take a few steps down and get an insane meal or just some muffins at Akasha. That's just the tip of the ice burg!
LA requirements in no order - Native Foods -MCafe -Real Food Daily (santa monica only) those are our institutions. If you flew in make sure you hit up Veggie Grill near the airport on your way out. There are something like 178 Veg places in LA plus an additional infinite # of places that will vegan it up for you so you have to stay here for like 2 years to catch up
