vegan carne asada!
Posted on 08 / 14 / 2012
I flew into LA, and asked a friend to meet for dinner. They asked where, and I basically said somewhere not far from the airport and not to far for him, and somewhere veg friendly. He found this place just a few minutes from both.
Knowing nothing about the place, I had to ask the person taking the orders about vegan options, and he politely said, "Everything is plant based." Carna asada sandwiches with vegan mayo were ordered all around. The food came out quickly, and wow, surpassed all expectations. We joked about how this is what I would expect from LA. Find a place 10 minutes away that was both vegan and amazing, just like that. The sweet potato fries were also very good. The food was definitely fast food like, but the quality was so much better. Of course the price did reflect this a bit. Something to consider though, I didn't eat anywhere else in LA, so the prices might be perfectly reasonable.
The staff didn't even rush us out as we caught up, even though it was clear that they were closing and getting ready to leave.
