Grand Central Market and Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

I don’t know if you know, but we moved to California a little more than a year ago and since than we have been loving exploring California by means of all the food.

Most of our adventures involve food (what good adventure doesn’t??) and this was absolutely no different.


We started our adventure sweet with a cruffin from Mr. Holmes. This is something I had been wanting to try for a long time, but our timing never seemed to allow a pit stop. So today, we decided to play it safe and make this our first stop.


We went with a chocolate cruffin. The outside was covered in delicious sugar and the inside filled with the most creamy chocolate filling. The chocolate filling totally made this croissant/muffin hybrid!

It was a sweet pit stop (no pun intended πŸ˜‰ ), but we were still hungry for more so on we went to Grand Central Market.


Grand Central Market resides in DTLA and the only way I can describe it is by saying if Pike Place and Anaheim Packing House had a baby, well, it would be the GCM. They have vendors selling produce and meat and then they have coffee shops and places to eat.

We perused the parameter till we came across Prawn. It’s a seafood place offering everything from lobster rolls to paellas. We decided to try the crab salad roll which had blue crab and a Scottish salmon grain bowl.


The grain bowl came with pesto, pickled onion, and cabbage over a bed of brown rice and barley. They steam the salmon in a shiitake mushroom and seaweed broth. This dish was immensely warming…it seemed like the perfect dish if you were sick or needed something comforting on a cold day. We were not sick nor was it cold (it was actually very hot), but we still loved the bowl.


The crab roll was really good and served in a nice soft bun. It was sweet and savory and completely delicious!

After all the savory, we were ready to be back to sweet so to Frog we went for frozen yogurt πŸ™‚

There ends our adventuring for the day…

All in all, it was a very good day of eating and exploring! I am curious though, having you guys been to GCM? Do you have a favorite place to eat there?

    The best adventures always involve food, in my opinion. πŸ™‚ I’ve never been to GCM or the Anaheim Packing House but I have been to Pike’s Place and I absolutely loved it. GCM looks like a blast!! I’d love to go one day, the food looks amazing. ❀
