Susan Feniger’s Blue Window – vegan street food options in Los Angeles.
If you’ve driven by Mudhen Tavern lately, you’ll notice something. Something blue. Blue Window is a take-out window where everything on the menu is $5-7. The items will change every six months – currently, the theme is Asia.
You eat standing up, on the street. There is everything from gochujang chicken wings with scallion cream to albacore tuna poke with pink peppercorn, cucumber, sesame sauce, and avocado. Also intriguing is the stuffed tempura with shies leaf, kabocha squash, shiitake mushrooms, and chile threads.
We do not have a blue background for our three dishes – vegan noodles, the banh mi…
…and a non-vegan poke…
…but our next door neighbors do, and they are getting one of everything.
I’m borrowing their food for a picture, and they are offering some bites!
You may remember I didn’t love Mud Hen Tavern that much but this food is phenomenal! The BBQ Bao is pretty incredible – it is basically like a giant dumpling stuffed with BBQ Jackfruit. There’s a peanut hoisin sauce that is to die for. The one thing I will say is that the street is pretty noisy – it’s on Highland so there is a lot of traffic.
