This semester I actually had a final on a Saturday, Mother’s Day weekend. While that sucked, I planned to hang out with my mom for the afternoon afterward. We went to lunch at Vegetable Delight in Granada Hills. The restaurant is entirely vegetarian and mostly vegan, with an extensive menu.
Every time I have been there, it has been mostly empty, but the people that do go there really like it. They have great reviews on yelp, happy cow, and urban spoon.
My mom and I ordered Pan Fried Vegetable Dumplings to start off.
They were really, really good – all warm and crispy. I would definitely order these again.
We also shared the Mu Shu Vegetable, which is always a favorite of ours.
The waitress very cutely called these “Chinese burritos” and encouraged us to ask for those if we forgot what they were actually called.
For our entrees, we ordered Lemon Veggie Chicken…
And Veggie Chicken with Cashew Nuts.
I’m not usually a fan of fruit sauces (orange or lemon, usually) on savory meals, but the lemon chicken tasted good for what it was. I love cashew nuts and veggies, and the Veggie Chicken with Cashew Nuts was delicious.
Although we didn’t try any, they offer a ton of vegan desserts. They have a flip menu listing ingredients including things like organic rolled oat flour .
- Vegan Chocolate Lava Cake
- Vegan Organic Carrot Cake
- Vegan Tiramisu
- Raw Vegan Raspberry Chocolate Cake
- Raw Vegan Raspberry Lemon Cake
- Raw Vegan Lemon Chi-z Cake
- Raw Vegan Chocolate Banana Cake
I really like this place. They have a lot to choose from and never rush you. The whole family likes it, so we will definitely be back.
