world vegan day at two boots: FREE PIZZA and music!

hey guys! thursday is world vegan day, and we’re teaming up with two boots pizza to celebrate! between 6-8pm both LA two boots locations will be giving out FREE slices of the new quarry girl vegan pizza (designed by me!) which comes piled high with san marzano tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, artichoke, fresh garlic, and a swirl of basil pesto. after thursday, the pizza will be available for one week…so make sure you get a chance to eat it.

in addition to free pizza, the echo park location will have free live music by LA’s own moses campbell. they’re an awesome band, and if you missed them at the el rey a couple weeks ago, this is your chance to make up for it. (huge thanks to clara from clara’s cakes for suggesting them). 

really hope to see you all at two boots on thursday! come try my new pizza, dance in the street, and celebrate veganism in general. here are the official event deets:

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. pizzanista in downtown LA is offering an extra special pizza on saturday for vegan pizza day, and it needs to be worshipped! it’s a vegan version of their popular “meat jesus” pizza, so naturally this one is called the "seitan meats jesus". it comes with daiya cheese and 3 different kinds of upton’s seitan: italian sausage, pepperoni, and bacon. AMEN TO THAT. go eat it.
PS: upton’s seitan products really are the best, and i don’t know of any other restaurant that uses them in LA. just another reason to go nom on this pizza, as if you needed one!

fuck yeah! shojin, one of the best vegan restaurants in LA, has just added new stuff to their menu and announced their mother’s day specials!

i am most stoked about the new “baked crab roll” pictured at the top - a green vegetable roll smothered in baked savory creamy sauce topped with asparagus and edamame. sign me up. shojin makes the best vegan sushi i’ve ever eaten, and i swear every time they add something new to the menu they raise the bar for rolls all around the world.

urbano pizza bar: a must visit

if you are a vegan living in los angeles, you should make it a priority to eat at urbano pizza bar downtown. trust me. the establishment just changed chefmanship, and under the supervision of exec chef bruce kalman, there’s a newfound focus on fresh vegetables and vegan options. most of the ingredients are handpicked at a local farmers market, and it really comes through in the taste. in fact, i’d venture to say that even though urbano is new to the vegan pizza game, they already make the best pie in town. here’s what we ate:

vegan farmers market pizza special of the night: daiya cheese, truffle oil, hedgehog mushrooms, spring onions, green garlic, leeks and pea tendrils. $14

(we sat at the chef’s counter, which has a great view of the kitchen!)

roasted sweet garlic, warm bread. $4

LOOK AT THAT GARLIC!

garlic oil in a medicine dropper? yes!

leafy broccoli, garlic, chilies, meyer lemon, balsamic. $7

antipasti: locally grown farmers market vegetables and grains. $6

on this night it was mushrooms, roasted asparagus, fennel, leeks, faro, and more. they left off the carrots because they were cooked in honey. props to urbano for knowing honey isn’t vegan.

heirloom fingerling potatoes and herbs. (no dip!) $6

roasted artichokes sans aioli.

great interior at urbano too—-long sleek tables and dim lighting.

i really can’t speak highly enough of this place. we loved the food, the atmosphere, the wine…everything. plus, there’s $5 parking at the library tower. just be sure to get validated. 

thanks for looking out for the vegans, urbano!

i eat, i drink, i take lots of photos.
