Vegan at Swingers Diner, Santa Monica – Post 2

Posted on

I have already talked about Swingers Diner, but I thought that I could do multiple reviews of restaurants as I make subsequent visits.  Click here to see previous posts about Swingers Diner.

My youngest sister, Alli and I went for a night out in Santa Monica this weekend.  We chose Swingers for a fun and casual meal.  This time I tried the Vegan Nachos, which their menu describes as “blue corn chips, soyrizo, soy cheese, homemade guacamole, black beans, green onions, and salsa.”  They totally hit the spot.  I loved the blue corn chips and soyrizo.

Alli got her favorite, the pancakes.

She’s crazy about them pancakes!

We decided to share the vegan chocolate cheesecake.  Oh man, was that a good choice.  It was super dense and creamy.  I think I may just continue ordering appetizers so I will have room for this cheesecake for dessert on each visit!

Vegan at Swingers Diner, Santa Monica

Swingers Diner in Santa Monica is a fun, quirky place that’s perfect for dual dining.  They have a lot of tasty diner options, both vegan and otherwise.  The menu is clearly marked for vegan and vegetarian diners, which I always appreciate.  Also, the Santa Monica location was used in the movie Knocked Up as the diner that Ben and Alison go to the morning after they spend the night together.

Quite a while back, Eric and I went out with some friends and I got to try the vegan burrito.  The menu describes it as “tofu and sautéed spinach, with quinoa and black beans wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, topped with chipotle sauce.”  It was the first time I had tried quinoa in a burrito and it was really filling and yummy.  I especially enjoyed the chipotle sauce.

I will definitely be back to Swingers in the future.  Although I enjoyed the burrito, I think I’ll try what else they have to offer on my next visit.
