While I mini-mourn the passing of the Prasadam eatery up the street, let me give a shout out to the newest kid on the Sunset Junction block: Lovecraft Biofuels, which opened up recently in that long-vacant corner on Sanborn across from the El Polo Loco and the Circus of Books.
At first glance a few weeks ago, I saw the platoon of Mercedes sedans occupying the lot and was a bit crestfallen at what I figured was just another auto mechanic — or worse: used car lot. Especially when considering that the neighboring and now-gone Silver Lake Guitar Shop is now a T-Mobile outlet… pfffft.
But driving by this afternoon, the previously nondescript and unadorned place is now sporting signage, although not nearly as much as in the above photoshopped image borrowed from their website, which also explains the bevy of Benz’s:
“Lovecraft Biofuels can convert your diesel powered vehicle to run on 100% vegetable oil (new or waste), biodiesel, and/or regular diesel, in any combination. We specialize in Mercedes Benz, but can also convert Ford, Cummins and other diesels. Don’t have a diesel? We keep an inventory of Mercedes diesels for sale, already converted, and ready to go.”
Now that’s the kind of business I like to see in the Junction.
