In the land of all things sunny, Los Angeles vegetarian restaurants shine brightly.
Top 5 Los Angeles Vegetarian Restaurants
THE BUTCHER’S DAUGHTER VENICE
Also vegan-friendly, this vegetarian joint is located in the heart of Venice. On the infamous Abbot Kinney, you’ll find some of the best stone-oven pizzas and even carbonara with spaghetti squash and fake bacon. Also, wash it all down with some deliciously fresh cold-pressed cocktails. Since Venice is the best for people watching, it’s a good idea to try and squeeze yourself onto the patio.
GRACIAS MADRE WEST HOLLYWOOD
When vegan and Mexican cuisines collide, you get Gracias Madre. In West Hollywood, this vegan joint offers up some huge portions and some great tasting food. Also, if you’re feeling super chill, or you need to chill try one of their weed infused cocktails. No kidding!
NATIVE FOODS CAFE WESTWOOD
Located in Westwood, Native foods cafe attracts some familiar faces. The portions are generous, the flavors, uh, flavorful, and the faux meat (especially the corned whatever that stuffs the Reuben) so meat-like that it’ll fool all but the most devoted carnivores.
A flavorful Peruvian restaurant in the heart of Hollywood. Our favorite menu item is the mole verde enchilada’s, which come stuffed with cashew nacho cheese and lime crema. Otherwise, try anything else, and we promise you’ll be satisfied.
CROSSROADS WEST HOLLYWOOD
Although more on the pricey side, it’s worth a shot to go and try it out if you’re in the area or visiting. We recommend that you begin with the lentil flatbread. Next, try one of the pasta. Lastly, indulge in a full-vegan hot fudge sundae without the guilt.
