brunch insanity at mohawk bend in echo park with my girls. starting to the left and going up clockwise, you’re looking at: hearts of palm “crab cakes” with hollandaise sauce, bottomless sangria, a pizza bagel with vegan cheese and seitan sausage, a “banh mi pizza” (marinated tofu, pickled carrots & daikon, jalapenos, herb salad, sriracha aioli), an asparagus potato pizza with leek puree and nutritional yeast, and a ballast point yellowtail beer. yes, this place rules.
earth mother pizza from two boots in echo park with tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms, spinach and artichoke hearts.
the arribiata pizza at portobello in portland is criminally good. homemade sausage, spicy sauce, cherry peppers and cashew cheese. this is my favorite restaurant.
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!
