We visit The Vegan Joint for healthier vegan cuisine (hey, just because food is vegan doesn’t automatically make it healthy — sugar is vegan, after all).
The Vegan Joint has a variety of items on the menu, including pancakes, burgers and burritos, but focuses on Thai vegan based food. Most of the time, when you visit a place that seems to be a cuisine of all trades, none of the dishes come out particularly good. I can’t say definitively if The Vegan Joint suffers from this problem, but based on what I ordered, I would say their Asian food items were a lot better than their non-Asian food.
During my visit, I had the mushroom soup which was amazing, fresh spring rolls — also amazing and surprisingly filling — and the garlic chicken wrap, which was just okay. I would still go back to try some of the other items, though. The pancakes look good, and I really want to try some of the noodle dishes.
For those of you who want an extra boost of “I did a good thing” with your meal, eating at The Vegan Joint means supporting a minority woman owned business, so there’s that.
The Vegan Joint has a few locations that are Metro accessible. There’s one near Culver City that’s a short walk from the Expo Line Palms Station. The location in the DTLA Fashion District can be reached via Metro Bus 51/52/351 to San Pedro/11th or via Metro Bike: there are docking stations at 11th and Maple and San Julian and 12th.
