Vegan Eats ???

I live near Pasadena/Glendale and it's hard to find any vegan restaurants. Does anyone know any good ones? Or just restaurants that offer tasty vegan choices would be great. Thanks!

    With the caveat that I have not been there is:


    And I have also seen a listing in Eagle Rock for a vegetarian place called Fatty's, but beyond that I don't know how vegan friendly it is.

    Add: I just had a thought. While Tibet Nepal House isn't strictly vegan it is very vegan and vegetarian friendly and would be a very good choice.

      Yes, as mentioned by Servorg, there's Cinnamon and Fatty's

      Also, off the top of my head:

      There's also Taco Spot (they have tofu tacos and burritos), The Blue Hen (a few vegan options), Lemongrass (several vegan options), all in Eagle Rock on Colorado

      Father Nature's Lavash Wraps
      Akbar Indian (tell them you are vegan, they'll modify their recipes for you)

        Fatty's has gone downhill, or so the Choehounds report. I've never been. But recent reviews are bleh.

        The SF valley has a few vegan coices.

        In Studio City is Vegan Table on ventura. I think ther's also a vegan express, too. Vinh loi veggie tofu in reseda has good vegan options, as does Follow Your HEart in canoga park.

        Leaf in Sherman Oaks is vegan and raw.

        Rahel Veggie cuisine in Little Ethiopia on Fairfax (south of Wilshire) has vegan ethiopian options (but is a little drive from you)

        Leanore's Vegan MExican is in North Hollywood, but the Vegans in Paradise site found out it isn't necessarily true vegan

          My two regular spots for vegan food are below:

          Nite Moon Cafe inside the yoga studio on DeLongpre (btwn Vine and Ivar) in Hollywood.

          Vegan Plate on Ventura Blvd in Studio City.

            If you don't mind going a little past Glendale into SIlverlake, CRU, at Sunset and Griffith Park Blvd near Sunset Junction, is terrific:

              Well, a little west there's Madeleine Bistro in Tarzana... all 100% vegan.

                Orean is a drive-through vegan joint on Lake in Pasadena which is pretty good. I love Fatty's and they do have a lot of vegan choices.

                  this is a repost of my reply to a similiar question:

                  the one spot I love that is missing from everyone's list is Vegan Glory on Beverly Blvd. at Orlando. Its Vegan fast food and thai. I love the comboy burger and fries there. They also have beer and a small but nice wine list. It's in a strip mall tho, so not big on ambiance.


                  Also, here's a list of SoCal Vegan spots:
