AKA the best list to forward to dates, boyfriends, family, friends, and anyone else who you may be having dinner with.
And when I say favorite I mean favorite, hence you will not have on this list any places that suck and can’t hold their own and these ones don’t make me feel sick!
Cruzer-(Silverlake) the best pizza place, the guys who own it are the nicest people ever plus everything is vegan
Z pizza (Larchmont, West Hollywood) (pictured above is zpizza's "berkeley vegan" get it without the crumbles)- not as good as Cruzer but still really good!
Lucifers Pizza (West Hollywood, Los Feliz)- the roasted pumpkin toppings are pretty awesome here
Vardo -(Santa Monica), everything is vegan and it’s my favorite restaurant in town, the vegan ice cream will make you die and go to heaven 10 times over!
Chaya –(Venice, Downtown) Sushi, I think this is one of the better sushi places for a vegetarian on the west side
Indian Sweet House-(West LA)this place is a total hole in the wall and I only go there for their dosa’s on the weekend, but if you ever have one they are worth it and like $5, take it to go
Ana Purna-(Culver City) dosa’s galore, this is the real Indian deal, and the dosa’s are spicy, you have been warned
Nirvana – (Mid-Wilshire) Indian. I love this place and perfect date ambience, always ask to sit on the cushion tables
Rahel (Mid-Wilshire) Bad Ass Ethiopian food, just ask for gluten free injera, everything is vegan here. The Ethiopian tea is just amazing but they won’t give you the recipe…
Greens Up: (Santa Monica), salad amazing-ness
Veggie Grill: (Santa Monica, Hollywood), l love the kale salad
Interim Café- (Santa Monica), Ask for the gluten free French toast, so good! Lots of Gluten Free stuff here!
Thai Teak- (Santa Monica) You will driving from the east side cause you will be so addicted to this place with $5 curry and everything being vegan you will not be able to get enough!
Sage- (Silverlake) A whole host of vegan and gluten free dishes.
Euphoria Loves Rawvolution Raw Café- (Santa Monica) my favorite raw place, with almost 50 things on the menu
Sojin- (Downtown)everything is also vegan, this place goes under the radar a lot, but the most off- the- chain sushi for a vegetarian
Babycakes-(Downtown, Larchmont) the donuts here are truly the best, the cupcakes and other treats are only so-so, so stick to the DONUTS which are baked not fried! Everything is vegan
Café Gratitude-(West Hollywood, Venice) When craving chocolate mousse pie go here. Not really a fan of the food, but the desserts kick ass!
In regards to soy sauce at sushi places, it’s a good idea to get the little packets of SAN -J tamari (which is gluten free soy sauce) that fit in your pockets or purse. My sister even keeps some in her car for last minute sushi emergencies.
The above restaurants have lots of gluten free options, but are not completely gluten-free restaurants so always check if the items ARE Gluten Free or Vegan, sometimes they give wrong information or change the recipe, so please double check !
