Vegan Glory

West Hollywood

The shrimp combinations are endless at this Thai fusion joint! Choose soy shrimp as your protein on any of their a la carte, noodle, rice, or curry entrees. If you’re looking for a shrimp starter, order the Mee-Krob or Tom Yum Soup, but don’t forget to leave room for shrimp tacos! The tacos include soy shrimp, shredded cabbage, salsa, cilantro, and spicy gluten-free chipotle mayo, all resting on a warm soft shell corn tortilla. Try them all!

The Vegan Joint

Culver City, Woodland Hills, & DTLA

While we’re on the Thai cuisine train, let’s take a stop at the Vegan Joint! Snack on their Golden Shrimp, Lemon Shrimp, or try their Sate with shrimp! If you’re feeling soupy, order the Wonton Soup which includes spinach, wheat flour wonton, soy shrimp and garlic. You can also add these babies to any of their curries, noodles, or rice plates!

Pop-up

This plant-based pop-up created a dish we didn’t even know we needed until we heard its name––Vegan Pineapple Walnut Shrimp! Served over a bed of white rice and topped with a flower, this beauty pleases all five senses. Other shrimp dishes include Garlic Firecracker Shrimp and Spring Rolls. Be sure to check their Instagram for the pop-up dates and menus!

Palms

At this all-vegan Italian spot, you have the ability to add shrimp to any pasta or salad. Craving pizza? Order the Tony Spicy, topped with tomato sauce, red onion, green bell pepper, tomato, jalapeno, shrimp, and mozzarella. What about Shrimp Scampi? That’s not something you see very often on a vegan menu, but you will at this spot!

Doomie’s Home Cookin’

Hollywood

Doomie’s knows exactly how to serve shrimp––fried! Their Fried Shrimp is beautifully breaded, fried, and served with a side of tartar and cocktail sauce. Maybe try throwing them on some of their freakishly tasty fries or order a few of their other hot appetizers, like the Fried Avocado and Jalapeno Poppers to create a sampler trio!

The VTree

Hollywood

There’s no one who knows flavor quite like Chef Velvet of The VTree! Her famous Cajun Shrimp, made from vegetable protein, is GLORIOUS! Aside from the outstanding flavor, the nutrition of these savory bites is quite impressive! The VTree’s shrimp is gluten-free, soy-free, low-carb, and contains no MSG or trans fat. Unable to visit this spot in person? You can now order their vegan shrimp online for nationwide delivery!

Chicana Vegana

Kick Ass Vegan

Food Truck

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Well––it’s not technically under the sea but this Vegan Shrimp Pineapple Bowl from Kick Ass Vegan won’t have you jumping ship!

Follow @kickassvegans on Instagram for their schedule and event-specific menus.

Naughty Panda

Santa Ana

This vegan Asian-fusion restaurant is a collaboration between Chef Adrian Garcia of Naughty Boy Sushi and Chef Syler Tanksley of Munchies Diner.
