Being a vegan can be difficult, especially if you do not want to relegate yourself to a life of only preparing meals at home. If you do eat in a restaurant you may also think that you can only eat in restaurants that simply have vegetarian and/or vegan options but still serve meat. But don’t worry! This guide was created to inform you about the best vegan restaurants available in the Los Angeles area! Whether you live in Los Angeles or are just visiting, this guide will assist you in finding a vegan restaurant that serves your needs and your appetite.
The Vegan Joint
The Vegan Joint has full menus filled with foods for all taste palates and also offers Thai-vegan based food. The Vegan Joint serves breakfast burritos, pancakes, and hash browns all day. For lunch, The Vegan Joint offers numerous burger varieties such as Black Bean, Lentil, Seitan, and Pepper Steak. Sandwich wraps are also available in addition to salads and soups. For dinner you can choose from such options as vegan dinners with rice, noodles, or curries, served with Thai flavoring spices.
For breakfast, my favorite dish is burrito #1, which includes soy bacon, tofu scramble, and vegan Monterey Jack Cheese for only $8.95! I eat my breakfast burrito on Lavash but a corn tortilla is also an option.
My favorite lunch dish is the Taco Plate, with the choice of soy chicken, soy beef or tofu with onion and cilantro. The Taco Plate is served with guacamole and fresh salsa in addition to romaine lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, sliced pickles, grilled red onions, tomato and vegenaise (vegan mayonnaise). The Taco Plate costs only $7.95! It’s a great deal and very delicious!

Veggie House is a small vegan café that replaced the now defunct Vegan Express. Veggie House offers an inexpensive Thai food menu with several veggie burgers and salads.
I highly recommend the Spicy Thai Spaghetti which features stir-fried spaghetti, broccoli, onion, fresh chili, carrot and sweet basil. It is a fresh twist on a classic dish that I’m sure you’ll love!
