Mostly Vegan Gem in Palermo Hollywood
Posted on 02 / 24 / 2011
We wanted to walk around Palermo Hollywood and then Palermo Soho, so we went to KENSHO for lunch. It was a Thursday and it was 2 PM, so things were very quiet and slow which turned out to be lovely for us.
The restaurant is a crisp, modern, minimalist space and it really has a nice, open-kitchen vibe. Everyone working there was very friendly and helpful. I'm 100% Vegan and I was impressed; Over 80-90% of the menu items are vegan. They conveniently mark items with icons for being vegan, Gluten Free, etc... which was SUPER helpful.
We ended up doing the special of the day which was an appetizer two mains and a dessert and we loved it all. Everything was very fresh and clearly tasted organic.
I think it's a pity that this is listed here at Vegetarian because that listing usually deters Vegans (like me) from thinking of it as the amazingly viable food option it is. We're here for 5 more days and hope to be back again before we leave.
Vegan Options Abound, Great Atmosphere, Friendly Staff
No English Menus (but the staff help)
