Veggie Grill Wins in the LA Times Readers Choice

All-vegan Veggie Grill has won the hearts of Los Angeles residents, twice.

Veggie Grill continues to stay in the news after announcing its Seattle opening with two wins in the LA Times Readers Choice 2012: Food & Restaurant. The purely plant-based eatery won for best American Restaurant, with the LA Times raving about the crispy chicken plate and Buffalo Bomber, in addition to best Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant. The LA Times says, “The Santa Fe 'chickin' sandwich and 'carne' asada burger are uncannily close to their carnivore cousins.” Other dishes on Veggie Grill’s menu include: Uptown Nachos served with chili, vegan cheese, corn salsa, avocado, soy cream, and jalapeños; and the Bali Bliss sandwich with Indonesian-style tempeh, sautéed vegetables, and chipotle ranch. Veggie Grill was named VegNews' Restaurant of the Year in 2008.
