First Review by Sonja and Dirk

hidden gem - Edit

In the heart of Boyle heights this place definitely does not disappoint.
Red Pozole w/vegan broth (thee best!)
Potato taquitos (as appetizer)
Guacamole and chips (as appetizer)
Pupusa plate (comes w/ fried plantains, beans and coleslaw)
Tofu Saltado (amaaaazing!)
Watermelon aguas (delicious!!)
Food was great, the menu says Latin Chinese fusion, not sure where the fusion is but the food was sooo flavorful. Pozole is definitely a tough dish to accomplish but this place has the flavors on point especially with the vegan broth. Parking is tough to find. But if your hungry you will find a place to park (remember at night the area is a little sketch) there was one server attending everyone the night I went and everything came out to perfection. The menu says no gratuity but how could I not tip when everything was more than I expected. Pozole. Just try it, you won’t be disappointed.

Pros: vegan options on every item , no gratuity (I still left a tip), Pozole

Cons: parking (across the street or metered)

I love Un Solo Sol - Edit

I have been going here for just over a year and love this place. Close to my office so it's great for lunch, and Mike and I have made the trip on weekends. Lunch and dinner. My favorite dish is the enchilada plate with red and green sauce. Don't worry, the dressing on the salad is vegan! I also love that I can order a vegan Thai Iced Tea! The potato flautas are a great addition to your meal. Service is always friendly and hospitable, and although they are not all vegan they will definitely steer you in the right direction for vegan options.

Pros: Enchiladas, Service, Thai Iced Tea

Best vegan Latin American food in LA - Edit

This place deserves more than five stars, but Happy Cow doesn't allow reviewers to give five starts to Veg-friendly places. Awesome pupusas and the best vegan Latin American food you can find in LA without any question. The portions are perfect and the food is nicely cooked and seasoned. Forget about the trashy Latin vegan food you will find in most LA vegan restaurants. Un Solo Sol serves legit/real Latin food. Service is very friendly and professional. It is very convenient to get to this restaurant using the gold line.

vegan Latin American - Edit

We came for dinner with a friend and the menus are already on the tables. The menu says it's Latin American, International and Vegetarian/Vegan friendly. Specific items are not marked vegan, but most items have a vegetable base with meat, tofu or mushrooms as add-ons. They were out of pupusas, so we started with tacos, one with veggie mix and two others with nopalitos. For entrees, we got the potato taquito platter, veggie mix enchiladas and ghormeh sabzi, a Persian dish. We also got the quinoa tabbouleh. Everything was tasty and we enjoyed our meals. The server clearly understood vegan and was very friendly.

Pros: vegan options, friendly service

Cons: serves meat, dairy and eggs
