After our Ryan I completed our vegan dumpling tour of Los Angeles we started brainstorming what food we could eat a lot of during my next trip to Los Angeles. Nachos, pizza, samosas? Then Ryan hit on the idea of tacos. Los Angeles is the city of tacos.
Just one day after my vegan dumping tour of New York City I hopped a flight to Los Angeles where Ryan picked me up from the airport for a Vegan Taco Tour of Los Angeles. Ryan planned out the trip by scouring local food blogs to discover critically acclaimed tacos and peppered the route with his own knowledge of Los Angeles's vegan restaurants to give us a focus, not on authentic Mexican tacos, but on eating a variety of different delicious tacos.
1. Komodo Foods
2. Sky's Gourmet Tacos
3. Mas Malo
5. Sage Vegan Bistro
6. Cowboy and Turbans
7. Loteria Grill
8. Leonor's Vegetarian Restaurant
9. Atwater Village Tavern
Final Count of the Day: 22 tacos of 13 varieties from nine different restaurants in nine different neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
After all this we've barely scratched the surface on what Los Angeles has to offer in terms of tacos. There are some other highly praised places we didn't make it out to on the taco tour, including the Kogi trucks (Korean tacos), Gracias Madre (where of course we've both been before because it's amazing), and hole-in-the-wall hipster hangouts like Taquerias El Atacor.
