The restaurant offers vegan tacos on their dinner menu. They are the perfect size to share with a friend or to indulge in by yourself.

Imagine a picturesque vegan heaven, filled with vegetables and non-dairy cheeses. Plant Food and Wine fits that image, offering tasty food that even the pickiest eater will dig into.

The health-conscious restaurant is located at the end of Abbot Kinney and boasts an all-white dining room and beautiful patio. The spot is perfect for a special occasion or casual desire for delicious food. 

Plant Food and Wine shows that veganism isn’t just health but delicious. The restaurant even uses ingredients from its own gardens in many dishes.

Matthew Kenney, the creator of Plant Food and Wine, is the world’s leading plant-based chef. He has written a collection of cook books, founded restaurants and won culinary awards.

But now onto the more important stuff: the food.

The versatile menu at Plant Food and Wine offers a wide variety of unique flavors that are both delicious and healthy.

For brunch, I enjoyed the banana fosters pancakes and the mushroom sandwichThe pancakes are a perfect way to curb a sweet-tooth, while the mushroom sandwich provided a savory crunch to the meal.

The brunch menu includes banana fosters pancakes. They are topped with maple syrup and bananas.

I also recommend their vegan take on a breakfast burrito, stacked with potatoes, beans and a tumeric aoli.  

Another favorite is the raw lasagna, packed high with vegan goat cheese and zucchini. You will hardly even know there is no meat or pasta in there!

The tacos are also one of my favorites, stuffed with mushrooms, avocado and tomatoes. Do not let the mushrooms fool you; they taste exactly like a juicy piece of steak.

I highly recommend visiting this trendy spot to try something new — you will not regret it.
