Vegetarian or Vegan: Vegan
Best Dish: Totopos With "Chorizo"
This is the Mexican offshoot from the founders of Cafe Gratitude, a vegan restaurant in L.A. that's famous for having dishes with names like, "I Am Humble" or "I Am Whole." Your non-veg friends might not be bold enough to join you there, but fortunately, Gracias Madre is a more accessible, just-as-delicious place to start. (Naturally, there's also a location in L.A.)
