The Hummus Republic Opens In El Segundo

The food scene in aerospace-centric El Segundo continues to expand.  It was back in October that I told you about the impending arrival of a branch of mini-chain The Hummus Republic to the space in The Edge complex at 827 N. Douglas St.  You’ll be happy to know that the “build your own” fast/casual Mediterranean grill recently opened.  Read more and check out menus here.

Ono Poke Now Open In El Segundo

As raw fish mania sweeps Western LA, many of you have been carefully following the progress of one poke shop that I first told you about back in May.  Having very quickly refitted the old Salad Creations space at 2259 E Maple Ave. in The Edge at Campus El Segundo, Ono Poke has now thrown open its doors to enthusiastic reviews on Yelp.  When will the poke madness end, you ask?  More to come…

Ono Poke Coming To El Segundo

As poke hysteria grips the Westside, we learn of yet another raw fish establishment vying for a place at the table.  Back in December I told you about the demise of El Segundo’s Salad Creations at 2259 E Maple Ave. in The Edge at Campus El Segundo, next to the giant Elevon complex currently under construction.  Signs have recently gone up on the space indicating that the new tenant will be Ono Poke Hawaiian Poke Bowl.  No word on an opening date, but I’ll keep watching.

Salad Creations Bites The Dust In El Segundo

The food scene around El Segundo has become quite a mercurial affair, with openings and closings almost daily.  The latest change?  LA’s only branch of the East Coast chain Salad Creations has permanently closed its doors in The Edge complex as of Friday.  One employee told me that keeping it open was simply, “too much work”.  No word on a replacement, but I’ll keep watching…

The Hummus Republic Expanding Into El Segundo

With all eyes on swankier developments lately (I’m looking at you, The Point), other more plebeian developments are off the radar… except here.  One giant multi-use development going into a less glamorous part of El Segundo is the massive Elevon, complete with retail, dining, offices, and hotels.  And the area around appears to be benefitting as well.  Right next door is another, smaller complex, The Edge, located on the corner of N. Douglas St. and E. Maple Dr.  With a couple of outlets across The Valley and one in Downtown LA, it appears that The Hummus Republic is expanding into The Edge complex, right next to Elevon.  Read more about their “Where Healthy Meets Tasty” Mediterranean menu and find out more here.
