Chipotle’s Vegan Tofu Burrito Goes National

  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 […]

Chipotle to Offer Vegan Burrito in Pacific Northwest

Chipotle to Offer Vegan Burrito in Pacific Northwest

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 […]

Top 10 Vegan Restaurants in London

Top 10 Vegan Restaurants in London

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 […]

Vegan Restaurants in Austin

Vegan Restaurants in Austin

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 […]

Upscale Vegan Restaurants in Philadelphia

Upscale Vegan Restaurants in Philadelphia

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 […]

Shojin and the Japanese Tsunami Relief Effort

Shojin and the Japanese Tsunami Relief Effort

Hi everyone. If you’ve been a regular reader of this blog, then you’ll already know that our favorite vegan restaurant in Los Angeles is Shojin. Shojin is a Japanese, vegan restaurant which focuses on organic and macrobiotic vegan foods.  We love this restaurant so much […]

Vegan Chicken at Chipotle

Vegan Chicken at Chipotle

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 […]

National Margarita Day?

National Margarita Day?

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 […]

Last Vegan Food For 500 Miles

Last Vegan Food For 500 Miles

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 […]

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 […]

Flore Cafe, Really

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 […]

Flore Lives Up To Its Hype

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  […]

Akbar’s Bengan Ka Salan

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 […]

Vegan Sushi

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 […]
