My Top Ten Favorite Vegan Meals in LA

I'm often asked for vegan restaurant recommendations. So I thought I'd post my favorite meals at my favorite restaurants. Six of these restaurants are vegan, the other four have myriad tasty vegan options.

It was surprisingly hard to narrow down my favorite meals at these restaurants, as I often order different things each time. But here you go.

By the way, these are not in any particular order. If they were, Shojin would be first. Also, Cafe Flore and other wonderful east side restaurants aren't on the list because, even though I love them, if they're not within biking or walking distance, I rarely frequent them.
