Dining Out With Toddlers

Great Tips For Dining Out With Toddlers

Dining out with children isn’t easy, especially when your child is a busy little toddler that is all excited and hyper with all the pretty things inside the restaurant.  Plenty of parents stop dining out entirely while their kids are still small.  Babysitters often aren’t an option for many parents who just don’t trust other people with their precious little ones.  They skip out on great food and great outings with friends for years, which is quite sad and lonely.

At Lulu’s Restaurant, we welcome people from all walks of life including your tiny toddler.  Here are a few great tips that will make it much easier to dine at the best chopped-salad restaurant when you bring your child along.

Pick the right place

One of the best things to do when dining out with a toddler is to pick the right place.  Lulu’s is a great place to dine out with your kids because we are entirely family-friendly.  Our restaurant is casual, laid back and the general design of our dining area makes it a relatively quiet place to sit and relax.

Don’t take your toddler out when he or she is tired

Taking a tired child out to dinner is one of the best ways to have the worst time ever.  Toddlers that are tired are fussy, clingy, they cry all the time, they shout, throw tantrums and it is impossible to calm them down.  Make sure your child gets enough nap time before you head out to the restaurant so your little one won’t get out of control.

Bring along a few extras

Kids, in general, cannot sit still for a very long time and an hour of dining is a very-very long time for a small child.  A bag of toys can be tremendously helpful.  Your little one can play at the table with various toys and stay busy.  Here are a few good examples of great toys to keep your little one content;

  • Duplo Lego blocks are great for building and for fantasy play. This will keep your little one busy for quite a while.
  • Play dough is also incredible. Just be sure to pick a type that is taste friendly.  You can also add some colorful craft items like beads, feathers, and eyeballs so your little one can build monsters or animals at the table.
  • A busy bag like a coloring book with crayons and some stickers can also be great at the table.
  • GEO boards with rubber bands are interesting and great for improving fine motor skills.
  • Your child’s favorite toy or play set can also be very helpful at the table.
  • A discovery box filled with unusual items like fidget toys, figurines, cars and more can also be great.
  • Puzzles are also amazing.

Order ASAP

You really do need to get your food to the table ASAP because nothing will keep a toddler content on the table for too long.  Order your food first thing even if it means rushing a waiter.  You can also emphasize the urgency so your food will be prepared as quickly as possible.

Don’t order sweet treats

Steer clear of sugar rushes by skipping out on desserts and sweet treats.  Lulu’s restaurant has “the best burger in San Fernando Valley” that any child will love and that won’t spike energy levels.  We also have a wide range of other healthy meals that are great tasting and perfectly suitable for tiny toddlers.

Lulu’s Restaurant is a great place to take the entire family whenever you need a break from the house or from cooking and with these tips any of your restaurant trips will be a lot more pleasant for both you and your little one.

Bring excitement back to the campfire with S’mores cups, a whole new way to enjoy s’more in a hybrid cookie/cupcake fashion. Brighten up your campfire and wow your guests with a reinvented fall classic.                       (From The First Year Blog)

6. Moroccan Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Soup

With Fall there is always a drop in temperatures, and while the leaves changing color is beautiful Cold Season is not. A go-to option when one is bedridden on a nippy fall evening is soup, and we’ve found a way to satisfy your craving without sacrificing the great flavors of Fall. It’s a simple blend of ingredients like butternut squash, spices, coconut milk, veggie broth, and goat cheese. Top with cashews or pomegranates and you’ll have a new favorite meal.
(From Halfbaked Harvest)

7. Halloween Candy Bark

Whether monsters are banging on your door for candy or you’re hosting a Halloween party, you want your treats to stand out. Skip the common candy bar and opt for Halloween Candy Bark. Start by melting chocolate on a baking sheet and topping with all your favorite bite-sized candies. Let it harden and you’ll have a spooky but sweet Halloween treat. (From Just a Taste)

Lulu’s Restaurant Best Camping Recipes

Summer is winding down and people all over are getting out into the woods before they get stuck behind a desk. Camping is great and after a long day of conquering rugged terrain with your friends there is nothing better than kicking back and enjoying the view. But then you eventually hear that rumbling sound.

If you end up not finding a gingerbread house, your untreated hunger might turn you just as wild as your surroundings. Nature is beautiful, but being hungry isn’t. That’s why the food professionals at Lulus have put together a list of some super easy camping recipes. With these simple meals you’ll be getting good food fast so you can get back to enjoying the view.

Ham, Egg, And Cheese Bread Bowls

Trying to find a place to wash dishes in the woods can be a hassle and even meal prep can cost you valuable adventure time. This is an easy recipe where you just hollow out the bread, seal the inside with ham, and then poor in egg and cheese. Once you wrap that up in foil you can lay it over the fire with a cook time of only a few minutes. (From Recipe Tin)

Fire Cooked Cinnamon Orange Rolls

Buy a tube of pre-made cinnamon rolls, hollow out half an orange peel, fill them in with the dough, and then place the oranges on a baking sheet over the fire. You’ll have delicious cinnamon roll tucked in an easily disposable orange bowl. Skip the dishes and entertain the kids with this easy camping trick. (From Truly Simple)

Omelets From A Bag

Using some gallon sized Zip-locs and some fire boiled water you can have some pre-made and easily prepared breakfast. Crack 2 eggs in each bag and fill with cheese, meats, greens, or whatever you want. Prep them before the trip and toss them in the cooler. Then simply heat up some water and let them cook for 10-15 minutes.

S’mores Sandwiches

This is a great way to enjoy s’mores without the sticky hands and goo covered clothes. Simply place some tortilla wrapped chocolate chips and marshmallow into aluminum covering, then lay them over the embers. Let them get a little toasty, carefully pull them out and let them cool, and then enjoy!

Pineapple S’mores Cake Sandwich

For a different way to enjoy s’mores you can get a piece of pineapple and a marshmallow sandwiched between two squares of pound cake. Toast over the flames and enjoy s’mores in a brand new way.

Campfire Eclairs

For another treat you can enjoy some classic french eclairs right at your campsite. Wrap some Pillsbury dough around a stick, roast until golden, and then let cool. Once hardened slide the bread off the stick, fill with pudding or whipped cream, and then top it off with some chocolate icing.

No matter where you are in the world, good food leads to good times. When you get back from your adventures visit Lulu’s Restaurant and enjoy any food you want in comfort minus bears. Visit our Menu and go enjoy Great Food!

Vegetarian Meals Plated Nicely

Enjoy Delicious Vegetarian Meals With Lulu’s Catering!

Salads and sadness. That’s the common perception of Vegetarian meals. The average person is queasy around quinoa and wilts at the sight of kale. But despite this sometimes negative reputation, a vegetarian diet has been shown to keep weight down, prevent disease, and help you live a longer and more energetic life.

In a 12-year Oxford study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers found that vegetarians outlive meat eaters by many years. One vegetarian culture in Okinawa, Japan, residents have diets rich in vegetables, soy, and legumes; this diet has had huge benefits for the island’s population. While the average life expectancy in the United States is 78.8 years, it’s 84 years old in Japan – and five times as many people from Okinawa live to be 100 years as their peers in the rest of the country.

The long terms effects of Vegetarian diets have yielded some amazing results and more people are beginning to adopt this new lifestyle. With this movement on the rise many are asking themselves “Where can I get a vegetarian dish that provides both ultimate satisfaction and health?” Lulu’s has the perfect solution for those who struggle with “boring but healthy” meat-free diets. Stand up against bland food by viewing five of our absolute favorite vegetarian meals available at Lulus below!

1.Veggie Burrito
Sautéed mushrooms, spinach, green chilies, onion, tomato, eggs and cheese in a flour tortilla.

2.Tomato Basil Linguine
Fresh tomatoes, basil, fresh garlic, linguine.

3. Greek Salad
Feta, Greek olives, tomatoes, red onions, bell peppers, balsamic vinaigrette.

4. Hand Battered Zucchini
Crispy zucchini slices, Parmesan, house dipping sauce.

5. Fresh Fruit Plate
Assorted fresh seasonal fruit.

We believe vegetarian food can be an absolute joy if done correctly, and that’s just what we’ve done here at Lulu’s. Come and enjoy these delicious vegetarian meals available at Lulu’s Restaurant in Van Nuys. Click Here to explore the menu and the many delicious options we have available!

5 Reasons Why Your Next Event Should Be Catered

Preparation for any successful event, be it business or pleasure, will always involve an enormous amount of time and dedication from those involved. With so much to plan for, how can you be assured that your time is being spent effectively? Oftentimes the most time consuming and multifaceted aspect of a successful event is the food. Planning portions, buying ingredients, and slaving away in the kitchen can be too time consuming and expensive for every event and cheaper, less time intensive options like buying a dozen pizzas can be perceived by your audience as an afterthought.

Enjoy The Taste of Lulu’s Restaurant at Your Next Party or Event With Catering Services

So just what is the ideal way to organize food for your next event? Catered events are ideal because they offer the best of both worlds, high quality food that doesn’t take you all day to prepare. Below, we have outlined the top 5 reasons why your next event should be catered.

1. Catering provides the audience with a sense of professionalism and prestige to your event. It shows that as an event organizer, you took the time to go out of your way to provide your audience with a great meal. These extra steps can go a long way in a business setting.

2. With a restaurant like Lulu’s catering your event, you won’t need to spend time with mundane tasks such as buying all the groceries, preparing the food, or setting up the buffet or serving station. This allows you to place your focus on the more important aspects of your event such as entertaining the guests.

3. If this is your first event or an event that you will not have regularly, catering can often be the cheaper option. Providing tables and silverware for a large event can quickly drive up costs on items that likely won’t see prolonged use. Catering companies will have these supplies on hand and will likely be included in the costs.

4. Experienced event planners will know that after each event, you must undergo monumental cleaning efforts to return your space to its previous level of cleanliness. With a catered event you can spend more time entertaining your guests than doing the dishes.

5. Finally, with all the added stressors removed, catered events simply allow you to have more fun at your own events. Whether it’s networking for business or celebrating a child’s high school graduation, you deserve to enjoy your own events.
