Asian-influenced cuisine from a growing vegan enterprise

One of a series of restaurants opening up in L.A. lately, all owned by the same Thai family, including Vegan Express and California Vegan, which also has a new second location.

The food is, like the other locations, primarily Thai.

When you first arrive, the sign looks like the 'V' and the 'O' fell off, but later you realize that the 'V' is two wheat strands and the 'O' is a tomato. The relatively small, but modern space is welcoming and comfortable with toasty brown paint, faux muslin shades, and a mint green accent wall. The bar (turned service counter top) in front of the kitchen is situated in such a way that when I entered I thought that they would take my order first and then sit down. So, if you go, sit down, they'll come to you.

Following one friend's recommendation, I ordered the Basil Leaves Lunch Special with Soy Pepper Steak, but they offer eight different types of "protein" that you can switch out, so you can have the same lunch combination 8 different ways. This wide of a range of meat substitutes is the most expansive I think I've ever seen at a vegan place. This friend was actually already eating this dish when we arrived, so I knew it had to be good since he comes at least once a week to this restaurant.

The Lunch Specials came with Tom Yum Soup, spring roll, salad, and steamed brown rice. This item is marked spicy and they mean it. Basil leaves is a misnomer for how hot and spicy it was. Also, they list it as a "spring roll", but I consider them egg rolls since they're deep fried, which is what I prefer. My other friend ordered the Pad Thai Lunch Special with Soy Chicken which was good, but a little dry.

I enjoyed this place and will probably visit again the next time I'm at the Beverly Center.

I love, love, love (most of) the food here.

The trick is to know what to order. The menu is MONSTROUS, and some things are more awesome than others. While there are several dishes which aren't memorable, the good stuff will leave you addicted to this place.

The chicken satay appetizer is deeeefinitely my fav dish; eat it and melt from the unbelievable deliciousness. You can also get the satay in a burger or wrap...both super yummy.

The kamut pancakes with banana are irresistible!

Their best dessert is the sweet roti bread with banana and chocolate peanut butter sauce.

A note on parking: there are nearby residential streets where you can park for free if you happen to arrive at Vegan Glory when there are annoying valet fees.
