Vegan Los Angeles Guide

Los Angeles was our last and my favourite stop on our holiday. We’d already been to Michigan to visit family, San Francisco and Yosemite. I was really looking forward to all the vegan food in LA because Iveganism is more mainstream there than where I live. Here’s all the vegan food I had listed in my vegan Los Angeles guide.

Thai Vegan

Thai vegan is set back a little from the beach at Santa Monica but we did eventually find it thanks to google maps! You can take out or eat in and if I lived there (in my dreams) I’d be getting takeout all the time! Anything that you can get at a regular Thai restaurant you can get here in vegan form. It was a no brainier for me to order Pad Thai because I love it and Billy had vegetable tofu fried rice. When the food came I couldn’t believe how much there was! My Pad Thai could have easily fed two people although I did manage to eat it all myself. It was really cheap too at around $8 per main.

VooDoo Doughnuts

VooDoo Doughnuts is a popular doughnut shop with locations all around the USA. We visited Universal City Walk are were please to find that they have some vegan options. I had the ODB which had Oreos and peanut butter on top and it was really tasty. Someone even stopped me when we were outside to say it was their favourite one so it must be pretty popular! The only slightly negative thing I found is that for the non vegan options there are some that are quite cheap whereas the Vegan one are all around $4. I’d but it again for the price but if you’re looking for a budget vegan option you won’t find one.

Cruzer Pizza

We had tickets to see a show in Hollywood so I planned to have an early dinner at Cruzer Pizza. There’s a limited amount of seating inside but they also do takeout. We shared a 12in pizza which was the smallest but was plenty for two! We couldn’t decide what to order because there was so much to choose from (including pasta and burgers) but we were recommended a vegan vegetable Pizza as you can pick 6 toppings. It was so delicious and another place I’d definitely go back to if I were in LA again. The staff were so friendly too! They now also do Gluten free bases!

Universal Studios

On our last day we decided to get tickets to go to Universal Studios. I was not very optimistic about the food options for me because there weren’t may at Universal City Walk. You also cannot take your own food inside the park. I did find a cous cous salad which was really weird because it was curry flavoured but had blackberries and blueberries in.  Since we went in 2018 I imagine there have been more vegan options introduced so if you’ve been let me know in the comments.

At The Airport

At the airport I had a choice between a salad and a burger. I went for the burger which was a southwest vegan burger from Point The Way Cafe which had a barley and risotto patty. It was one of nicest vegan burgers I’ve had and it came with fries which is always a bonus! It was such a big portion than even I couldn’t finish it despite the fact that I really wanted to eat all the burger!
