If you are going to be in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, I can’t recommend enough one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles, The Green Temple. It’s located in Redondo Beach which is a little over 20 miles from Downtown Los Angeles. The drive is completely worth it because the food is so tasty and well seasoned, I can’t imagine you wouldn’t like it. The decor is lovely inside and out, as you can see from the pics below.
When you are in The Green Temple it’s like you have been transported to another place in time.
They have a large selection of tea, and I love the way the present it. The service is excellent and every time I have eaten here the servers are always very nice and attentive.
I ordered the veggie burger which comes with vegetables and guacamole. The vegetables are so well seasoned which is rare for a restaurant. Everything on the menu is natural and/or organic but it is like no other vegetarian food I have ever eaten. It has flavor, lots of sauces, and lots of taste.
This veggie burger was absolutely wonderful.
This is the cornadilla, their take on a quesadilla. That’s soy cheese in the cornadilla but you wouldn’t know it.
Doesn’t this restaurant look inviting? Whenever I go back home to Los Angeles this is one of the restaurants I often eat at because there is nothing else like this place anywhere. Even if you aren’t a vegetarian (I’m not) you will probably like this place. They have a lovely selection on their menu and you can get things to go if you so choose. Even if Redondo Beach isn’t near you, you won’t be disappointed if you make the drive. Plus, the beach is literally around the corner so you could come for lunch and then take a nice stroll on the beach. Wouldn’t that be a lovely way to spend a couple of hours?
