Eatsa, a brand that originated in San Francisco but is starting to enter the Southern California market, officially opened in The Village at Westfield Topanga over the past weekend. The concept isn't that new: it's essentially an automat eatery styled after the early 20th century, but filled with a slew of technology to make ordering seamless.
The concept focuses on healthy quinoa bowls, all priced at $6.95, and filled with things like barbecue portabella mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumbers and corn; guacamole with asada portabello and seasoned pinto beans; red Thai curry with curried parsnips, and roasted potatoes. Everything's vegetarian but the flavors skew toward rich and meaty, something that's likely to fill you up for less than a Chipotle burrito these days.
Order up at the tablets out front, then wait for your order to be fulfilled at one of the translucent "cubbies" on the wall. Within minutes, the food comes out and you can go on your merry way. Hours run 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and until 9 p.m. on Sundays.
