FOOD SCOOPS: MACRO HOUR AT M CAFE

 

Happy Hour is typically a time to take the edge off the work day with a nicely discounted dose of booze, maybe even a half-priced appetizer–who can resist? But the 3 to 7pm window doesn’t always have to be decadent to be happy. Not every occasion calls for fried balls or sliders or beers or martinis.

Leave it to the geniuses at Hollywood Favorite M Café to come up with a pretty ecstatic alternative: Macro Hour.


In case you’re not already familiar, M Café is famous for it’s diverse menu of nutritious but super healthy eats that follow Macrobiotic* principles in a contemporary way. The food is made without any refined sugars, dairy, eggs, red-meat or poultry–but trust us, you won’t miss it, especially not at the new Macro Hour.

 

Running Weekdays at the Melrose location from 4pm-7pm, Macro Hour offers exclusive off-menu items including delicious re-interpretations of happy hour favorites, like Nachos and Mac & Cheese, as well as other fun snacks like BBQ Seitan Spring Rolls and Crispy Asparagus Spears. Everything is between $6-$8, and you can get macro-shooters for $1 each to score some extra health points. Whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to schedule an afternoon meeting or just grab a snack and read a book, M Café has got you covered.

 

BBQ Seitan Vietnamese Spring Rolls with a savory peanut sauce. So light and refreshing with a nice crispy bite.

 

Macro Nachos! Jalapenos, cilantro, beans, and guacamole—can’t go wrong here.

 

The Mac & Cheese is creamy and wholesome with sundried tomatoes, arugula, and asparagus.

 

The Crispy Asparagus Spears will satisfy your craving for a crunchy fried snack without getting too greasy. And the zesty dipping sauce should not be neglected.
