The Best Vegan Restaurants in Los Angeles


Raw Manda

Life as a vegan has changed dramatically for me since moving to the West Coast in June 2015. Social life can be challenging when your friends and family don’t practice the same values, but with the abundance of vegan restaurants in L.A., l am thriving on a plant-based lifestyle.

Californians are spoiled with the availability of fresh produce year-round. This also means we get to experience some of the best plant-based cuisine in our restaurants. With great produce comes great vegan cuisine. So thank you L.A. for spoiling me in the healthiest and most compassionate way with your exceptional vegan fare!

Phil Rosenthal's Los Angeles


Phil Rosenthal

Phil Rosenthal is a writer and director who is best known as the creator of the Emmy Award-winning CBS comedy, Everybody Loves Raymond. Rosenthal is the host of I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, a food and travel show on PBS. The Los Angeles episode airs Monday, Nov. 2, 2015 at 10/9 Central (8 p.m. N.Y. / WNET). Read on for Rosenthal’s thoughts on the L.A. dining spots he visits on the show.

There are cities that have a few go-to cuisines, but L.A., at the moment, has more than any. That’s why I think it is the best food city in America right now. It’s our cultural diversity that's our strength. And the strength is in the sheer numbers: we have the biggest population of Chinese people in the world outside of China. Also, the Korean population, Mexicans, Thai, Armenians... We could keep going. They've brought their cultures and cuisines into this massive expanse, and if you're playing the odds of hitting a great place to eat in L.A., you're going to win more times here than anywhere else.
