Hooray for a new vegan restaurant addition to Greater Los Angeles. This Vegan Joint #2 is located in Woodland Hills, at the corner of Ventura Blvd and DeSoto Ave (easy freeway exit). My husband, daughter, and I went for the first time recently for lunchtime, and we were all very pleased. Here's my Vegan Joint review for all ya'll.
Finding the restaurant was a bit tricky for us because we had entered on Ventura into their shopping plaza, but you can't see the restaurant from the lot. You have to either drive down to the underground parking, and enter from the door there, or you can walk over to DeSoto and enter from the main entrance.
The new menu is the same as the one that's offered at The Vegan Joint on National Blvd in LA. So I knew it pretty well. To try something new, I ordered a custom tofu omelette (with spinach, mushroom, avocado, and vegan jack cheese slices) which came with a side salsa, potatoes & peppers, and 2 pieces of toast. My daughter enjoyed the toast with avocado from the omelette. I also ordered my usual favorite, the spicy noodle soup, and it was filling and delicious. My husband got a fish wrap and the fresh rolls appetizer. We shared a cold fresh coconut, and were all pleased.
The restaurant is on the small side but with enough seating for a meet-up group. It's well cared for, and the staff is very helpful and friendly.
After our lunch, we walked over to No Udder vegan desserts shop made our day out extra fun (yummy sweets).Pros: tasty food, good prices, friendly staff
