Chef David Anderson is firmly committed to utilizing only the finest animal-free, organically-grown, seasonal ingredients prepared with flair, innovation and imagination. Madeleine Bistro’s menus feature a diverse selection of artfully presented pan-ethnic dishes with a decidedly French influence. Although the techniques are French, inspiration for the dishes is culled from the world’s rich bounty of ethnic cuisines, as well as playful takes on American comfort food favorites (dishes such as Chicken-Fried Seitan and Banasas Foster Split spring to mind). The final piece of the puzzle is Southern California’s incredible abundance of top notch organic farmers, whose product allows Chef Anderson to realize his dream of allowing the menu “to be dictated by the whim of the seasons.”
the vegan joint logo A cozy Thai café that features attentive, friendly service along with an eclectic Thai-American-TexMex menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner specialties. Breakfast is served all day and highlights wheat-free pancakes, burritos, and hash browns. Start your dinner with the Tofu Satay accompanied with a thick Spicy Peanut Sauce for dipping, or Vietnamese-style Fresh Spring Rolls with creamy Peanut Sauce. Don’t miss the Seitan Dinner, a dish of flavor-infused strips of wheat meat, steamed veggies, and a choice of brown rice or deliciously thick slabs of grilled potatoes. Traditional Thai dishes include shiitake, red and yellow curries, shiitake soup with coconut milk, pad thai, spicy mint noodles and much more. Also on the menu are sandwiches, wraps, salads, and burgers.
vegan plate logo A comfortable, all-vegan café specializing in tasty Thai dishes like P.E.T. (pumpkin, eggplant, and tofu in garlic sauce), and Chu Chee, a veggie shrimp creation bathed in a coconut sauce and laced with kaffir lime leaves. Thai dishes served with an exceptional, nutty flavored brown rice. The menu also offers wraps and burgers made with homemade wheat meat. Valet parking in strip mall lot or park on side streets.
real food daily logo Real Food Daily (Vegan Kosher): Gourmet organic vegan cuisine catering to all diets. Three outstanding appetizers we recommend are the Nori Maki (vegan sushi), Lentil Walnut Pate, and the No-Cheez which is a combo plate of guacamole, a black bean dip, a creative carrot salsa, and tofu sour cream all served with blue and yellow corn chips. The Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy are great! The Reuben Sandwich was a highlight as well.
orean logo A vegetarian fast food take-out that holds it own nestled among an array of fast food joints within a two-block area on Lake Avenue. Soy is popular here as a filling for their many tasty burgers, burritos, pizzas, chili dogs, and tacos, and they use crisp and fresh clover sprouts in their sandwiches. There are four tables outdoors for your quick meal that can be topped off with one of their popular shakes. They even serve a breakfast burrito to start your day. Vegans will want to pass on the soy cheese that contains casein.
rahel logo The only vegan Ethiopian restaurant in America, this cozy eatery located along the “Little Ethiopia” strip offers a humongous array of delicious wots (stews) and is the only restaurant serving teff injera, the traditional bread of Ethiopia.
