It’s been a weird year. A lot of shit has gone down. I’ve moved three times. Someone had better by me a gravestone in my immediate area because I’M NEVR MOVING AGAIN. Ugh. But when you’re moving about in LA, one of the few positives is discovering what kind of delicious vegan food is lurking around the corner. Because, no doubt, any neighborhood you move into in Los Angeles has at least one vegan or very vegan friendly restaurant in very close proximity. Bless you Los Angeles, bless traffic ridden soul. So far, within my immediate area (currently Highland Park) I have 4 places to score some super delicious eats. There’s Cinnamon, an all vegetarian/vegan Mexican place. There’s Figueroa Produce Market which is an actual market, but has the dopest, most authentic vegan deli sandwich I’ve ever tasted. It’s a full service deli with meat and cheese, but there is a separate little vegan corner with faux meat, Daiya and all the fixins. You can also order Match Meat by the pound when they have it in stock. If you’re in the mood for something a little bit more fancy, there is Fatty’s. Fatty’s is deserving of its own post, so I won’t say too much…..except that I ate there for the first time about 2 weeks ago and it’s definitely a contender for best vegetarian/vegan restaurant that I’ve been too. Love that Fatty’s.
And now most recently I’ve discovered Blue Hen. Blue Hen offers delicious Vietnamese made with the finest local, organic ingredients. They are VERY vegan and gluten-free friendly. I stopped by and ordered the special, which was a veggie pho and also ordered some curry. I took both meals to-go and they were both really great. Flavorful and satisfying. Healthy too!
