I was recently fortunate enough to eat at Veggie Grill.
The Veggie Grill is in the Los Angeles area right near LAX airport. They have another location on the Irvine University campus, too.
This place is awesome! They need to franchise and open up restaurants all over the country. It’s incredible and it’s perfect for both vegans and cross-overs (people who are part-time vegans or mixed vegan/non-vegan groups).
The restaurant is fast-food-ish in that you order at the counter, get a number and it’s brought out to you – quickly. But it’s anti-fast-food in that it’s healthier, tastier, and not served on disposable plates.
I ordered Chill Out Wings, Stormin Kale, and Carrot Cake. My mom ordered the V-burger and cheesecake. So tasty! They also serve wine, which makes it feel a bit European
The restaurant has plenty of outdoor space, so if you have a dog dining with you, you’ll be OK out there in nice weather (luckily, Southern California usually has nice weather).
Do you live near any 100% vegan or vegetarian restaurants? What are your favorites?
