First Review by Rich Revell

Wow! A New Vegan Menu! - Edit

We've been going to Olamendi's for many years and have always had to have lengthy conversations with the staff about the menu items, what the ingredients were, how they were prepared and what could be made vegan. But we kept going back because we loved the food and they could accommodate us.

Now we don't have to do that anymore...Yeah!!!

With the new ownership change back to the original Olamendi family and the new vegan menu that started this week, those days are gone. I personally spoke with Jorge & Maria Olamendi and they are committed to serving everyone's needs for vegan, vegetarian, etc. dietary choices. Maria has personally developed all of the vegan recipes and said that she has at least 20 more ideas for additional vegan items for the future. We can't wait to try them. We also spoke with Stephanie Olamendi, another family member on the staff, who was instrumental in helping to make sure that the vegan menu came to fruition. As good fortune would have it, Stephanie is a vegan and understands!

We had a great lunch yesterday and will be going back very soon. Thank you to Jorge, Maria and Stephanie for bringing great mexican food to Laguna Beach and thinking about the Vegans out here. :)

Pros: Great Vegan Menu Choices, Great Staff, Great Location & Views
