Vegan Bungalow

Since it’s within walking distance, I often have meetings at the Larchmont Bungalow during the week and brunch on Sundays. Usually I get a muffin or split one of their ginormous egg dishes with Abe – today I was invited to check out their brand new Research and Development menu:


My old Wesleyan roomie Guillermo was in town and did some vegan sampling with us


Four dishes to split


Maple Bacon Tempeh Club – with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and Veganaise. I chose the spinach salad on the side (you could also get fries or onion rings)


Green Vegan Enchiladas – marinated five-grain tempeh, sauteed spinach, caramelized onions, vegan mozzarella, roasted tomatillo sauce, guacamole, pico de gallo, and black beans


Vegan “Chicken” Tostadas – two crispy shells with grilled “chicken,” vegan mozzarella, pureed black beans, guac, shredded iceberg/cabbage, pico de gallo, and ranchero sauce


Everything was fabulous (and pleased even the meat-eaters) but the overall favorite seemed to be the Breakfast Burrito – tofu, tempeh, black beans, roasted peppers, vegan chipotle aioli and caramelized onions


I wound up eating only a bite of that one…


…a piece of everything else…


…most of the side produce…



…and seconds on the Enchilada


Yum. T’was a good day for animals…

  • Monet

    Such a cute pooch! And my goodness, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such good vegan food. I need to come out to CA more! This all looks delicious, as always, and your words make me smile, yet again. I hope you have a blessed week and a wonderful season of joy and food and fun.

    I had no idea that Larchmont Bungalow was planning to launch a vegan menu! Everything looks sooo delicious- particularly the breakfast burrito! I can definitely see how that would be the favorite. But, the enchilada looks amazing as well.
    I have a sneaking suspicion that I may find myself there this week. How can I pass up dishes like that? Thank you for sharing!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      how funny!!! i wonder if we were there at the same time…

  • Brigid

    That looks tasty! I don’t think I mentioned that we’ve moved to Hollywood, so that’s only a couple of miles away now. We’ll have to try it out.

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      glad to hear – brigid – welcome to the “best” side of town :)

  • Jessica

    Kinda creeperish but…I saw your roomie homie at Trader Joes Silverlake this morning! I had read your blog the day before and when I went shopping today I recognized him. First the hair reminded me then the shirt (he was wearing the same one) confirmed it. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to seem like a creeper but I thought it was a trip!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      that’s hilarious. yeah, guillermo is easy to spot – you should say hi next time. he’d totally get a kick out of that.
