Doomie’s Home Cookin’, Hollywood – Post 2

I have already talked about Doomie’s, but I am doing multiple reviews of restaurants as I make subsequent visits.  Click here to see previous posts about Doomie’s Home Cookin’.

You may recall that I was eager to take my husband, Eric, to try the comfort foods at Doomie’s Home Cookin’.  For our anniversary this year (four years married!) we decided to keep it low key and drive out to Doomie’s for a date.

Please keep in mind that this is not a healthy restaurant, they just aim to make guilty pleasure foods available to vegans, too.  We shared the nacho plate, which was a little dry and hard to get down.  The meat replacement in it was overcooked and the portion was huge, so we couldn’t finish it.

We also shared the “Chicken” Fingers, which were the best part of the meal!  You could hardly tell that it wasn’t meat and the sizes were appropriate.

I got the Spicy “Chicken” Burger because back when I ate meat, I really liked that type of sandwich.  It was tasty, crunchy, and spicy, just how I like it.

Eric ordered the “Chicken” Fried Steak because it’s something he really enjoys usually.  However, it was an awful big piece of imitation chicken and I think for an omnivore, something that better masked the fact that it wasn’t real meat would have been better for him.  Plus it was pretty greasy and the breading didn’t stay on well.  He said he would order the Spicy “Chicken” Burger next time.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of his plate.

  1. I have eaten at Doomie’s about five times. I find it to be very hit or miss. But by far the worst thing I have ever ordered there, and probably the worst vegan item I have ever been served in a restaurant, is their “Chicken Fried Steak.” It tasted like I rubber and I could barely cut it with a knife yet alone chew it. As far as I’m concerned, it’s inedible.
