Chipotle’s Vegan Tofu Burrito Goes National

Saturday, March 1, 2014 Lane 1

  Over the years, we’ve written about a couple of articles about Chipolte offering vegan options (Chipotle to Offer Vegan Burrito in Pacific Northwest and Vegan Chicken at Chipotle). According to the article from Fast Company earlier this week, the vegan burritos (Sofritas) will now be offered nationwide at Chipotle. The [keep reading…]


Chipotle to Offer Vegan Burrito in Pacific Northwest

Sunday, July 28, 2013 Lane 3

UPDATE: I spoke with Chipotle this morning. They indicate that the vegan burrito is available throughout California – not just in Northern California. So if you are anywhere in California or parts of the Pacific Northwest and you need a vegan meal… Here’s what they stated. It includes all of [keep reading…]

Top 10 Vegan Restaurants in London

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 Lane 3

I haven’t been to London in twenty years. Jane and I have been considering a trip to Europe some time next year. It’s not easy being a vegan when traveling abroad. The excitement of discovering a new city can often be tempered by not knowing where to eat. Guide books [keep reading…]


Vegan Restaurants in Austin

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 Lane 0

We are always looking for good vegan restaurants. Below is an article that was published today which discusses vegan restaurants in Austin, TX. Personally, I’ve never been to Austin, but I have suspected that eating would not be a problem there as I’ve been under the impression that there are [keep reading…]


Upscale Vegan Restaurants in Philadelphia

Friday, April 20, 2012 Lane 0

I stumbled upon an article which is discussing vegan food in Philadelphia. The article is basically indicating that a large percentage of the people who are eating at several upscale vegan restaurants in an around Philadelphia are not vegan or vegetarian. Hmmmm…  Perhaps I need to plan a trip to [keep reading…]

Shojin is a Japanese, vegan restaurant which focuses on organic and macrobiotic vegan foods.  We love this restaurant so much that we eat there about [keep reading…]

Vegan Chicken at Chipotle

Thursday, April 29, 2010 Lane 28

UPDATE: 08/18/12 Chipotle no longer offers vegan “meat” options. I contacted the company and received the following reply: “…We did offer a “vegan meat” called the Garden Blend. Unfortunately, this offering was not nearly as popular as we had hoped, and originally anticipated, and because of this it was generating [keep reading…]


National Margarita Day?

Monday, February 22, 2010 Lane 3

I’ve been informed by Jane that Today is National Margarita Day.  I must admit, I’ve never heard of it before, and if I’d given it any thought, I would have tied that in with Cinco de Mayo.  However, any excuse is a good excuse so we will be going out [keep reading…]

Last Vegan Food For 500 Miles

Tuesday, July 21, 2009 Lane 9

One of the reasons we enjoy Shojin so much is that they are constantly changing their menu.  They keep the core items, but add things as certain foods become seasonally available.  Our main course was the Seitan Pepper Steak, which is one of those new things.  It was delicious.  If [keep reading…]

If you’re in the Los Angeles / Orange County area, Veggie Grill is giving away free sweetheart (sweet potato) fries today, Wednesday, April 22nd,  in honor of earth day. Just mention you heard it on KTLA.  I heard about it on the news this morning and wanted to get the [keep reading…]

Flore Cafe, Really

Saturday, January 31, 2009 Lane 4

So after my gaffe last week, of confusing Flore with Flore Cafe, I convinced Jane we needed to head on back out to Silver Lake.  Last week I reviewed Flore in Silver Lake.  This time, we were off to Flore Cafe (really). Jane had the Breakfast Burrito, and I had [keep reading…]

Flore Lives Up To Its Hype

Saturday, January 24, 2009 Lane 6

Thanks to Kevin and Foodeater for catching our error.  The restaurant we reviewed here is Flore, not Flore Cafe.  My mistake, I googled Flore for the address and got confused.  That happens people… I write my posts late at night.   Sorry for any confusion  I may have caused.  But [keep reading…]

Akbar’s Bengan Ka Salan

Saturday, January 10, 2009 Lane 0

Jane and I were in Santa Monica today and stopped in at Akbar, possibly my favorite Indian restaurant (they also have locations in Pasadena, Marina del Rey, and Hermosa Beach).  Although they are not a vegan restaurant, they are familiar with vegan cuisine.  We didn’t have to go through an [keep reading…]

Vegan Sushi

Monday, October 27, 2008 Lane 0

So I finally had vegan sushi.  Sushi/sashimi, the non-vegan version, was something that Jane and I adored.  And we knew, that like with pizza, we wouldn’t find the vegan versions nearly as satisfying.  So we’ve avoided the stuff.  On our last trip to Shojin (our favorite vegan restaurant), we had [keep reading…]

The Vegan 100 – 100 Things You Should Try

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 Lane 11

Many of you have probably already seen The Vegan’s Hundred list.  There are other ”Hundred” food memes circulating round the blogosphere (The Omnivore’s Hundred, which started the trend; and The Vegetarian’s Hundred).  Generally these a little bit of fluff we bloggers can use a way of introducing ourselves.  Jane and [keep reading…]

Okay, this post is a tad late, as we went to Shojin about 3 weeks ago. Why has it taken me so long to write this up? Well, I still haven’t gotten my photos off my camera. First we had a load of trouble with our Bits mail, and then, [keep reading…]

Eggs-traneous Ingredients

Thursday, June 26, 2008 Lane 18

Tonight Jane and I went out for Thai food. We’ve eaten at this particular restaurant a number of times, and are fairly confident we’re getting a vegan meal – as long as we specify that we want no eggs, and no meat. We know we need to do that regardless [keep reading…]

Shojin Restaurant

Monday, June 16, 2008 Lane 3

A while back, Lane and I read a promising review of Shojin Restaurant on To Live and Eat In LA, a blog about eating vegan in Los Angeles. Since we live in the area, we often peruse her website when we’re looking for someplace new to try; our geographic boundaries [keep reading…]

KFC Canada Puts Cruelty Free On The Menu

Wednesday, June 4, 2008 Lane 4

I seem to be writing a lot about fast food lately, which is somewhat ironic since Jane and I really don’t eat a lot of fast food. The notable exception here is Taco Bell. They’ve been our lifesaver on the few road-trips we’ve taken since we’ve gone vegan. Their bean [keep reading…]
