Hello all! I've been reading veggie boards for about 6 months now, and I've finally decided to become a part of it!<br><br><br><br>
I'm an LA native...went from carnivore to vegan about 5 months ago...my husband had been ovo-lacto vegetarian for the last 13 years, and after doing some research together, we decided that going vegan was the best thing we cold do..<br><br><br><br>
There is so much incredible information here that has helped my husband and I become vegan! I couldn't have done it without this site : )<br><br>
Thank you everyone!

No tatoos of any kind here (oh no! I'm an outsider!) but wanted to say welcome anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I'm LA vegan, too. Come say hi to us in the California thread. We're going to try a get-together late summer, early fall, I believe.<br><br><br><br>
What are some of your favorite places to dine out in LA?<br><br><br><br>
I love The Newsroom and Native Foods.

hi epski : )<br><br><br><br>
hmmm...I'll check out the CA thread...I haven't yet!<br><br><br><br>
my fav places to dine? Santa La Brea (cuz it's right around the corner from us), Real Food Daily, Vegan Express (for a quick bite) and Venus of Venice!<br><br><br><br>
Believe it or not, I haven't tried the newsroom or native foods! we've been meaning to!

Sounds like we live near each other. I'm near Sunset and La Brea. We go to Sante about once a month. Used to go more often, but the guys there are a little weird about us ordering water and sharing one dish, so it makes us uncomfortable to go there too often. I haven't been to Vegan Express in a long time, 'cause my wife didn't like it the two times we'd gone. Friend of mine says the Philly-steak style sandwich is the best, so I want to check that out sometime. We both like RFD, but it's probably the most expensive vegan restaurant, so we only go when I'm making extra money or whatever.<br><br><br><br>
Definitely try to check out those other too. Newsroom isn't vegan, but their menu is about 20% vegan, and they've been serving vegan longer than just about anyone in town (that isn't straight vegan). They don't even serve red meat at their restaurants, so they're further along than most.

hi Epski,<br><br>
Yup! we sure do live near each other. we live in the miracle mile area...6th and la brea - ish...actually around the corner from the el rey theater.<br><br><br><br>
that's wild about sante la brea...we share a meal all of the time!<br><br><br><br>
and I looooove vegan express! their cowboy (seitan) burger rules...and the seitan wrap is awesome! so are their fries! I love their yummy raw food treats too!<br><br><br><br>
I do agree - RFD is quite expensive for what it is, but if I've got a craving for chocolate cake, that's where we go! and if you get something off of the basics menu, it's not too bad...<br><br><br><br>
I will check out the Newsroom and Native Foods, for sure! hmmm...maybe one this evening!
