Cheap & Healthy LA?
I'm looking for good deals on healthy food in the LA area (I'm in the Cedars-Sinai/West Hollywood area)...I'm a vegetarian, & am having a hard time stomaching (pardon the pun) the $15-or-so bill to get something that is good for me...
Any ideas? THANKS!
I like Sante as well as its sister location on San Vicente, A Votre Sante.
Newsroom Cafe is close to you, but isn't necessarily cheap.
Ed's Coffee Shop on Robertson does great egg whites and sides, including non buttered, plain grits.
Mao's Kitchen has vegetarian substitutes as well as is very accommodating of dietary requests.
Hugo's has cheaper and more expensive options... the mung bean combos are particularly interesting.
Jinky's is another good option.
M Cafe de Chaya (not my favorite but lots of ppl love it)
Truly Vegan and California Vegan both are cheap
Even Famima has some healthy cheap options, as does Baja Fresh, Chipotle, or La Salsa offering rice, beans, and salsa for a cheap, tasty fresh meal.
Erewhon market on Beverly has a pretty decent salad and soup bar that is healthy and semi inexpensive. I haven't been impressed by the deli but you can't really screw up soup and salad.
Vegan Glory on Beverly isn't bad either but even though it's vegetarian, it's questionably healthy.
i've been having the same problem and have had to resort to cooking at home with my weekly farmers market finds.
If you like Indian food , there is India's Sweets and Spices which is cheap and portions are big. It is vegetarian indian in Venice/Culver city area.
Also there is Bharat Bazaar which is a clean well kept indian vegetarian place. Compared to India's more "hole in the way" atmosphere. Staff is also nicer..last time I went to India's Sweets and Spices I kept smiling at the counter lady , but she didn't give me a smile back...at the end she finally forced a half smile.
I think portions seem to better at India's Sweets and Spices , but you have to deal with the elements more.
