just tried this fantastic kimchee from dave’s korean food, an entirely vegan company that sells goods at local farmers markets. from their kimchee to their spicy tofu and several varieties of tempeh, everything rocks. plus they don’t skimp on the free samples. track them down at the markets in west hollywood (sunset strip - that’s where i got it!), studio city, burbank, south pasadena, culver city and more…?
saigon spring rolls from toi on sunset. these are cold vietnamese rolls filled with vegetables, rice noodles, and tofu served with a carousel of hot sauces (if you request it!). i usually slather mine in an obscene amount of chili paste. just be sure to ask for the vegetarian/vegan rolls because shrimp is an option. toi is amazing—-great atmosphere, late hours, and delicious vegan-friendly food. definitely my favorite thai place in LA.
