Get Your Veg On at One of These LA Vegan Hot Spots

Written By: Charlotte Farrell LA Vegan Restaurants

Although I can’t call myself a true vegan, I can say that I love some cashew cheese, jackfruit nachos, mushroom tacos, etc. As one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the USA (see the full list of cities here), Los Angeles has a plethora of fast-casual and fine-dining restaurants that provide animal-free options that even carnivores would crave after their first bite. Here are 10 restaurants we recommend that will fit your fancy whether you’re a newbie or a pro:
