the pub @ golden road brewing…
…AKA my new favorite place to hang out.
golden road brewing recently opened the doors of their very vegan-friendly pub, and after one visit, i’m hooked.
in addition to a growing roster of freshly brewed beers, golden road offers an extensive menu with plenty of inventive meatless options. we tried:
the pretzel with spicy mustard. it was simple yet tasty, and the mustard was hot as hell. this also comes with a vegan cheese option for an extra charge.
next up: vegan meatballs! not all soy fake meaty, instead these were made out of rice! so delectable, and served with cornbread.
lastly: the potato sandwich (CARB HEAVEN!): roasted tatties with cheesy sauce, onions, and arugula in a huge baguette. (no peppers!)
we washed it all down with plenty of point the way IPAs, which made for a splendid saturday.
on top of the plentiful vegan food and craft beer, the atmosphere at golden road is chill and comfortable—-there’s loads of seating, the servers are friendly, and there’s a jukebox stocked with lou reed, pixies, and the smiths. the only thing i would warn about is the fact it got a bit chilly due to the giant doors, so bundle up!
OH!!! and i ran into tal ronnen today at golden road—-haha! this place is obviously a hub for vegan “celebs”!
definitely check out golden road ASAP. there’s nothing like it in LA. cheers!
