VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN LOS ANGELES ARE… EVERYWHERE!

Vegan restaurants are everywhere in Los Angeles. This newest find offers exquisite plant-based cuisine!  It was the site of #LunchBreakLIVE with Jane Velez-Mitchell, New York Times bestselling author and founder of #JaneUnChainedNews & Kim Delgado with Vegan Outreach, also a #JaneUnChained contributor. These two vegan foodies feasted at the exquisite Variable Cafe.  This new vegan heaven is located in Marina Del Rey, California just blocks from the beach.  The exact address is: 13350 West Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, 90066, just east of Lincoln Blvd.  Check out what Jane and Kim chose to order.

THE VARIABLE CAFE

vegan restaurants in Los Angeles

My Son’s Pho:
homemade aroma broth, house marinated tofu, rice noodle, organic shiitake mushroom, daikon, bok choy, bean sprout, organic edamame, jalapeño, basil leaves, and side of sriracha hot sauce.

I read the vision and motto of the variable cafe and I think it is so perfect I want to share it with you, word for word.  From the owners, Plern and Joel:

THE VARIABLE CAFE IS BASED ON CHANGE. THE NAME ALONE DERIVES FROM IT.

BE THE VARIABLE. BE THE CHANGE.

WE WANT TO DISRUPT THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH VEGAN CUISINE.

WE WERE NOT VEGAN FOR MANY YEARS. BEFORE A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN A DEMAND FOR A CHANGE IN DIET BECAME NECESSARY. WE NEEDED TO CHANGE QUICKLY. WE DECIDED THE VARIABLE OF EATING PLANT-BASED AND THEN TO VEGAN WAS THE ANSWER TO THE EQUATION.

HUMANS ARE EXTREMELY CAPABLE OF ADAPTING.

ALONG THE WAY WE ADAPTED TO OUR DIET. WE FOUND THE NEW INGREDIENTS TO BE EXCITING TO EXPERIMENT WITH. RECREATING STAPLE DISHES OF OUR PREVIOUS EATING HABITS WITH

TBS

Vegan Tomato Basil Soup with crunchy garlic sourdough. Cozy Sunday night.

A VEGAN APPROACH

 

“WE FOUND IT NOT ONLY TO BE REALLY FUN TRYING TO RECREATE DISHES BUT  OFTEN FINDING IT WAS ACTUALLY EVEN BETTER.

A LIGHTBULB WENT OFF FOR BOTH OF US.

“LET’S TRY TO MAKE A RESTAURANT THAT PERPLEXES EVEN THE STRONGEST OPPOSITION TO A VEGAN DIET.

WE DARE YOU TO TAKE THE BET YOU WON’T LIKE IT :).”

Jane is on a relentless mission to find the BEST vegan restaurants and cafes in Los Angeles, and she’s quite successful at it.  She was super excited to try the new Variable Cafe, and after looking at the food photos, I can see why.  It is eclectic food with a variety of ethnic themes, and it also has a health bar.
