10 Spots for Vegan Onion Rings in Los Angeles
There’s really a national day for everything these days, and if you love the batter-dipped, deep-fried bite of onion rings, you’re probably going to want to enjoy some on National Onion Ring Day (June 22). Here’s a list of some spots in LA that serve onion rings, as well onion ring-stuffed items, like burgers.
Doomie’s Home Cookin’
Known for all their vegan comfort food, it’s no surprise Doomie’s has two onion ring-stuffed burgers on their menu. Order their Western Bacon Cheeseburger—their bacon cheeseburger topped with BBQ sauce and two handmade onion rings. Or, try their Memphis Cheeseburger—a cheeseburger topped with their pulled pork and two handmade onion rings.

Munchies Vegan Diner
This vegan diner offers an onion ring stuffed burger, as well as a side of onion rings.

Their side of onion rings is gluten-free as-is, house-made, and served with ranch.

One is their Gastropub Burger, which is a burger patty, tomato bacon jam, smoked Gouda, fried onion rings, arugula, and plant-based mayo served on a toasted pretzel bun.
