Can’t decide between tacos and pizza, between a table at a coffee shop or a quiet corner in one of those spots with different-sized forks and fancy napkins? In charge of choosing the dinner spot? But reeling from the multitude of options the city has to offer? No worries, friend! Here’s the perfect LA vegan restaurant based on your zodiac sign!
Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
This headstrong sign thrives on competition. Can you get your meal free if you eat a burrito bigger than your table? Let’s do it! Win a t-shirt for consuming something hotter than any human should attempt? Challenge accepted! For this fire sign, we’re headed to Sugar Taco. With menu items like ghost pepper tacos and Just F*ck Me Up Guac, Aries will be one happy ram. Menu warnings stating EXTREMELY SPICY in all caps with exclamation marks? Psh! Bring it on!
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
Lover of all things indulgent, Taurus adores generous portions of rich, creamy comfort food. Be prepared to linger over dinner and enjoy some delightful conversation. For this earth sign, a meal is an experience. It’s meant to be savored with every one of the senses. Try Margo’s for their large plates. Order up some nachos, cacio e pepe, or rigatoni & meatball. And enjoy it all outside on the gorgeous patio. Fries and a cocktail with that? Absolutely! Taurus is also going to want a box to go—just to extend the enjoyment a little bit longer.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun. 20)
Coffee and Plants
Gemini prefers grazing on smaller meals throughout the day and is a classic junk food lover. They would be just as happy to cook at home. But if you do go out, keep it light, quick, and super interesting—easy, breezy, vegan cheezy. Better yet if the twins can enjoy great conversation, look at pretty things, and save the world while noshing on their afternoon snack. So, Coffee and Plants FTW with this one! A cafe where you can sip a latte, purchase succulents, eat pastries, AND support a company that plants trees and donates to animal sanctuaries all at the same time? #geminigoals
Cancer (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22)
The nurturer of the zodiac, Cancer is most at ease in the comforts of home. A warm, inviting environment is essential to the experience of a good meal. They crave familiarity in dining and love to be fed as much as they enjoy cooking for others. Nothing speaks home, comfort, and good food like a big plate of pasta! Head to Pura Vita for the Garlic Parmigiano Potato Wedges and Baked Cashew Ricotta. Stay for the Calabrese or Carbonara and a generous pour of vegan wine. The crab of the zodiac will appreciate the vegan renditions of Chef Tara Punzone’s traditional family recipes.
Leo (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22)
Monty’s Good Burger
Watch out, all! Leo is in the house! This fun-loving diva of the zodiac thrives on an audience and loves spots where one can see and be seen. Are there celeb collabs? Of course, there are! Build-your-own options? Absolutely! Monty’s Good Burger is the perfect spot for this charismatic fire sign. Beginning with their famous Dog Pile, we’re digging all the secret menu items for Leo. Awesome Instagrammable shakes; bold, unapologetic burgers; and big-name celebrity partnerships make this the place to be!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
This practical, easy-to-please sign needs a budget-friendly, no-nonsense spot to satisfy their hunger. Cleanliness and order are key. And be sure to keep it healthy. Think smoothie bowls, salads, and juices. Virgo loves a simple, no-fuss menu, and a tidy, organized atmosphere. They also prefer to enjoy their food in dishes that have not been used by others. This is why we’re popping into Echo Park’s Glowing Juices. With the philosophy that “food is medicine,” this little market offers a simple menu of smoothies, salads, and sandwiches that come packed with superfoods, adaptogens, and organic ingredients. And their juices are intended to target various areas of immune function. Sinus Juice? Brain Juice? Metal Detox? Ahh, they’re speaking Virgo’s love language.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
This fashion-savvy sign has a penchant for sweets and treats. But first, a few rules—the food MUST be visually gorgeous and worthy of the ‘gram, MUST be rich and decadent, and MUST be presented in classy fashion. That’s why we’re loving Chaumont Vegan for this air sign. You’ll find a number of indulgent croissants, from Chocolate Almond to Earl Gray, Rose Water, and the more traditional plain, flaky, multi-layered croissant. Top them off with one of Chaumont’s vegan butters, including Truffle Butter, Garlic Butter, Rose Butter, and more.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Hot Tongue Pizza
Turn up the heat! Along with an edgy spot that provides a bit of intrigue, Scorpios love a little spice to their food. Very likely, too, they’re a regular at the restaurant. Hot Tongue Pizza, we choose you! Start with an order of Garlic Knots and follow with their Buffalo—a round, thin pie with broccolini, Buffalo cream sauce, shiitake bacon, and a hot agave drizzle. Don’t forget to pick up a Hot Tongue t-shirt while you’re there. The hot pink logo on a black background is oh-so-Scorpio!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
These explorers of the zodiac are just as adventurous in their food choices as they are in their travels. Bring on the world kitchens! Try Ethiopian fare tonight at Berbere. This Santa Monica spot offers everything from ET Twist Sliders (with tofu, spinach, BBQ sauce, and Tangfaye Sauce) to Shiro (a garbanzo stew served with tomato salad and gluten-free teff injera). Feeling brunch-y? Try their Oyster Mushroom Rosemary Flat Bread, Buticha Garbanzo Scramble (with tomatoes, jalapenos, red onion, and vegan parmesan), and T&T Breakfast Burrito (a house special filled with scrambled tofu, berbere roasted potato, and other traditional flavors).
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
They’re going to need to put it on their calendar and fit it into their schedule. Then it’s going to have to be efficient. Even better if Capricorn can pick up their meal to go and eat it later at their desk. You can’t beat Veggie Grill for a wide selection of basic, easy-to-grab vegan classics. This no-nonsense, fast-casual spot offers affordable options such as their lunchtime meal deal. Choose from the Baja Fish Taco Combo, Buffalo Mini Wrap Combo, and Teriyaki Mini Wrap Combo. Offered from 11am-4pm, each combo comes with one side (we’re looking at you, sweet potato fries!) and a beverage for just $9.95.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
This quirky, easy-going sign is a humanitarian at heart. They love a novel concept, especially one that’s revolutionary and benefits society in some way. JOi Cafe is just the spot for the water bearer of the zodiac. Enjoy organic, gluten-free dishes like Baked Cheesy Mac & JOi, Roasted Tomato Bolognese Pasta, and Tulum Taco Salad. Start with apps (chips & guac, anyone?) and end with Balls of JOi or Cakes by Yvonne. But know that there’s a deeper mission behind this beautiful food. The founders offer these vibrant dishes and desserts with a desire to feed their neighbors and contribute to the well-being of their community.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
For Pisces, dining out is all about good food, good friends, and groovy vibes. Generous-hearted, they adore a spot where sharing is encouraged. And being a water sign, they are all about their seafood! We’re headed to Shojin for our Pisces crew. A great spot to meet up with friends, Shojin uses organic ingredients when possible, crafts their own recipes, and makes all dishes from scratch—all concepts which appeal to the fish of the zodiac. Start off with a Cucumber & Seaweed Sunomono (a Japanese-style salad with sweet and sour flavors). Then order up one of Shojin’s sushi rolls. Choose from the “Crab Cake” Hand Roll, Dynamite Roll, Dragon Roll, and more.
