This place is NOT JUST FOR VEGANS! Everyone will be stuffing themselves with dishes from the amazing menu. Read on.
I had the honor of attending a “blogger preview” event for a new vegan restaurant in Pasadena, CA. The restaurant is One Veg World and there is already a very successful location in West Covina. And now, those of us a bit closer to Los Angeles can enjoy their large variety of vegan goodness too.
The menu is pretty varied and has something for all tastes and diets, from snacks to entrees to salads to desserts. It touches on Asian, American, and Italian cuisines. I have some of my own food allergies and had no problem finding something I loved. I believe the menu at their new location is different from the old one, so I snapped this pic – apologies for the glare.
The place itself is immaculate, intimate, and casual. They also sell a few vegan snack items (chips, juices, marshmellows) if you want to take them home with you. There is a great quote on the wall, alongside a few larger-than-life paintings of exotic birds. The staff is as sweet as their desserts, making for a truly lovely atmosphere.
We were served an amazing variety of food, family style. After the obligatory blogger pause for photographs of each dish (below), it was chow time.
All of the food was fresh, flavorful, and perfectly cooked and seasoned. I’m looking forward to trying the other items on the menu!
If you’re eating vegan in Los Angeles, this Pasadena sweet spot is well worth the trip. And for those of us living and dining in Pasadena already…well I guess May 30th is our lucky day.
One Veg World opens May 30th at 950 E. Colorado Blvd. #104, Pasadena CA 91106. See www.onevegworld.net for details.
