Cheap lunch w/vegetarian options - Silver Lake/Echo Park
I'm having lunch with a friend in the Silver Lake/Echo Park area tomorrow. We're looking for not too expensive with vegetarian options, and healthy-ish would be good too. What's up with Town & Country? Is Elf open for lunch?
Thanks in advance 'hounds.
Town & Country is very average - ok sandwiches etc - sometimes spotty service.
Elf is closed for lunch. Gingergrass is Vietnamese w/ good vegie options( a killer tofu curry pot) -fun place for lunch. Madame Matisse has really good salads for lunch - atmosphere a little funky. Blairs is now open for lunch - they have some good vegie salads that run around $9 or so.
Alegria on Sunset would be my top choice probably (Mexican).
A little overpriced for what it is, but KP's deli has banh mi and other Vietnamese sandwiches, with a couple of vegetarian options. And Pho Cafe on Sunset is at least decent - heard mixed things about their trust-worthyness in terms of vegetarian-ness.
re: Gingergrass (above) make sure to ask about fish sauce. I'm not sure, but I seem to remember they can't do their curries without fish sauce there.
Check out the tiny Soy Cafe on Hyperion near Lyric, across from Casita del Campo. They make a delicious tofu + shitake banh mi sandwich and a soyskin + mushroom rice noodle dish. They have weird hours, and are closed on Fridays and the weekend, though.
