HEAVEN (or whatever your spiritual//non-spiritual equivalent is)
Mohawk bend is by far my favorite vegan restaurant. I fell in love with this venue after the first time. Yes … it was love at first bite.
This restaurant is located in the recently revived Silverlake neighborhood in Los Angeles. While they do not have a parking lot, you can usually find metered parking on the street. There is limited outdoor setting; however it is covered.
I’ve been told that this building used to be a playhouse. Inside, although dimly lit, you are in a huge eating area with a full bar, high ceilings, and a few televisions. The back area has an outdoor feel without the view of the busy L.A. streets. You have the choice of a traditional table, booth, communal table, and bar seating.
I can speak volumes as to the food here. The best part is that there are both vegan and non-vegan options. Sean loves this, because sometime, he’d rather eat “normal people food”.
My all time favorite is their cauliflower buffalo wings. Sometimes this is my meal; other times we split it as our appetizer. I also enjoy their vegan chili cheese fries, and fried brussels sprouts. For brunch the Tofu Scramble is my go to (especially after a race). My mother enjoys the Huevos Divorciados. The Hearts of Palm Crab Cakes are tasty, but dense. I haven’t had crab in years; oddly enough the texture reminds me of actual crab cakes.
We usually makereservation, which I strongly recommend you do, since it gets busy. The staff is friendly and usually makes conversation. They are attentive. I love this place!
