Finally! An All-Vegan Crepe Restaurant!
Posted on 12 / 10 / 2012
I just ate at a fantastic new restaurant in Los Angeles bordering Beverly Hills called LA VEGAN CREPE. I have not eaten crepes since I was a child, so I had forgotten what crepes tasted like.
I was the first to arrive at the grand opening of the restaurant tonight, and was greeted by the very friendly Philippe, one of the restaurant owners. I first noticed the green painted walls which give the restaurant a very soothing feel. Philippe told me that he and his wife
Natacha are both vegan, and they had run a sandwich shop in Florida for 5 years. The French couple decided to move to LA recently to open up what I believe is the world's first all-vegan crepe restaurant.
Two fellow vegan friends and I ordered a number of dishes and shared all of them so that we could all taste what the restaurant has to offer. I have posted the pictures that I took. We ordered three crepes: The Italienne, Savoyarde, and Veggie Lovers Crepes, and a side of calamari. Their menu has both sweet and savory crepes, and we all felt like ordering the savory buckwheat crepes. Each crepe comes with a side salad.
All of the crepes were just delicious! How many restaurants do you know that mix 3 different flavors of vegan cheese in any dish? The Savoyarde had 3 flavors of vegan cheese (pepper jack, mozzarella, and cheddar) mixed in to one crepe! The crepes were perfectly spiced, and the textures were delightful. The vegan calamari with a side of special sauce was tasty.
I am going to have to go back to this restaurant to try their breakfast and their panini sandwiches. The menu was very limited tonight for the grand opening, but they did show me what their regular menu was going to look like, and a posted a picture of it.
This is the type of restaurant that meat eaters and vegans can both enjoy together. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, except perhaps to those who follow the McDougall diet.
I feel so privileged to have a restaurant that is this great just a 4 minute bike ride from where I live.
