Vegan Glory Lives Up To Its Name
For the select few that choose to walk the dietary path less traveled, we're here for you. Broccoli huggers and tofu touters rejoice - we've found one of the best new Vegan restaurants in town, Vegan Glory.
In the spirit of the Tofu Festival, LAist is exploring some of the best new veggie-friendly options around town. Vegan Glory most definitely tops the list. Boasting a diverse menu which they define as "Vegan Thai Cuisine," options are plentiful. Herbivores will breathe a collective sigh of relief because every item is 100% Vegan. That means no trace animal products. So for once, a tried-and-true veggie-lover can sit down without firing an arsenal of questions at the poor wait staff.
LAist has been sampling the menu since February. Our favorite dish is the Pad Thai combo lunch special. The Pad Thai consists of rice stick noodles stir fried with a tasty sauce, bean sprouts and green onions. It's topped with crushed peanuts. All the lunch combos come with steamed brown rice, a spring roll and salad or soup. LAist recommends staying away from the default veggie soup (which is a bit watery). Request the miso or seaweed soup instead.
Most specials come with a choice of soy chicken, soy pepper steak, seitan, soy fish or traditional tofu. So you can choose the meat substitute that best suits your palette. The soy fish tends to be the saltiest and the seitan is the chewiest.
