Last Vegan Food For 500 Miles

last gas

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 you haven't tried Shojin, and can get to Little Tokyo in downtown Los Angeles, go... you won't be sorry.

So we're sated, and hopefully our expectations of our food options in Montana will be exceeded.

  1. Thanks for the restaurant tip. The food look delicious. My son just did his state report on Montana and he had to look up restaurants to eat at. If you want I can look back at his report and see if I could suggest a place to eat if you know where you are staying?

  2. The ad that came up with this on my google reader was for A1 steaksauce and the tagline “make your burger sing” or something silly like that. Thought you would like to know 🙂

  3. hello! wow I cant remember how I found your blog but that looks awesome! I’m coming to LA next month so this is definitely on this list! Real Food Daily is a favourite, can you make any other recommendations?

  4. What at Taco Bell is vegan? My boyfriend loves to eat there and if they have something vegan I could tag along!!!

  5. Hi Dreamin’

    Obviously we didn’t check the blog until after we returned from our trip. 🙁 Thanks for the offers though. Greatly appreciated!

  6. Hi Carla,

    Hopefully this isn’t too late. LA is huge, so it would help to have a vague idea what neighborhoods you are visiting.
    Most vegan restaurants seem to have less ambiance. If you want something special, Shojin or Madeleine Bistro.
    If you’re going to be in the Silver Lake area, you’ve got a few good choices. Flore is our favorite (and now their airconditioned). — Try the Quesadilla or the TuNo Melt.
    We like Loving Hut in Alhambra.
    Bean Sprouts in Arcadia is good (skip it if you don’t like Chinese 5 Spice)
    Fatty’s in Eagle Rock is vegetarian with good vegan options. Pricey and the owner is SNOTTY, so we don’t go anymore, but it’s a nice adult restaurant. Check their website for their hours.
    Cru is another adult restaurant with ambiance, but it’s raw.
    There’s a fast food chain around called Veggie Grill. EXCELLENT (a little pricey for what it is).
    RFD – we’ve grown not to like it. There are better choices. But if you go, you MUST have the nachos. They are truly amazing!
    Those are what come to mind. Let us know where you’ll be and we’ll point you in the right direction.

  7. Hi Jenny,

    You’ll only have one choice — the Bean Burrito, no cheese please. But I find it really addictive. Once I start having them, I crave them. Damn, now I want one!
