I have already talked about The Brite Spot, but I thought that I could do multiple reviews of restaurants as I make subsequent visits. Click here to see previous posts about The Brite Spot.
The Brite Spot is a cute little diner in Echo Park that we pass all the time when visiting the in-laws. This time, I ordered a bowl of vegan chili and vegan nachos.
When the chili first arrived, I was worried that it had beef in it because the imitation ground beef looked so much like the real thing. I double checked with the waiter and he said it’s definitely vegan, they only make vegan chili, so you can rest assured that they haven’t mixed them up. It was hearty and flavorful and not a bad deal at $5.50 for the cup. It was pretty large.
I also ordered the vegan nachos wish their awesome soy chicken. They were great, although a little dry. I still don’t understand why they only have a lactose free, but not vegan cheese. They need to get on that to improve their vegan dishes.
The soy chicken was amazing, I couldn’t get enough. It both looked and tasted a lot like chicken.
We’ll definitely be back. This would a great place to meet non-vegans for dinner so that you could have a satisfying vegan meal without making a big production out of it.
