Three of mine:
Pure Luck
Vegan Glory
Leonor's Mexican

      I believe Tantawan closed on 10/ least that what they told me a few weeks
      ago, but i haven't been by there since. It's a shame because their food was really good!

        BUMMER. They were my standby delivery spot >:(

    2. I like A Taste of Life on Fountain, just west of Vermont.

      1. For casual dining, I love Veggie Grill. 2 locations in Irvine, one in El Segundo.

          Veggie Grill is great! It's got that appeal for the non-veg heads...

            Yeah, it's awesome. 100% vegan, yet when my friends go there, they have no clue... haha! And they love the place too!

              if it's the place i'm thinking of, they serve great sweet potato fries.

          1. As a NYer who visits family in LA every year, I make several visits to Rahel for their all-you-can-eat lunch special. Spectacular Ethiopian food, and all vegan to boot.
