6. El Cocinero Restaurant – Van Nuys, USA

This  popular all-vegan Mexican restaurant in the San Fernando Valley was opened in the summer of 2020. It’s run by the owners of the successful pop-up Vegatinos.

Some of the best food you’ll eat. Take someone here and they wouldn’t know it was plant based. This is the kind of food that converts meat eaters to plant based food.
