7 Vegan Burrito Spots in L.A. Open During COVID-19
In honor of National Burrito Day, here are seven spots in Los Angeles to grab a vegan burrito.
Along with tacos, nachos, plates, and more, this fully-vegan cart, serving up Latin American flavors, makes amazing burritos. And they don’t just have one standard burrito option, either! You can customize your order, choosing what kind of plant-based meat—carne asada, pollo asado, al pastor, or carnitas (gluten-free)—to stuff your huge flour tortilla with, along with the included refried beans, rice, pico, and salsa that comes in every burrito. Add extra meat and guacamole to make all your burrito dreams come true.
Place your order on Postmates, Grubhub (Use promo code AFF7 for $7 off your purchase of $12 or more!), Caviar, or on their website for pickup and delivery. Cena Vegan is also participating in SUPPORT + FEED, an initiative to help feed those in need during this time.
At Doomie’s Mexican branch—Doomie’s #NextMex—you can get a burrito with their asada, pollo, carnitas (gluten-free), al pastor, chile verde mole chicken, Korean BBQ, or Baja artichoke. Whew! That’s a lot to choose from. Then, select wet style or as a chimichanga for $2 or $1 extra respectively. Take it up a notch and make it a combo for only $3.50 extra, and you’ll get beans, rice, and a salad with it too.
Call ahead to place an order for pickup, or order delivery via DoorDash.
Sage Vegan Bistro
Culver City, Echo Park, and Pasadena
At Sage, they’ve got their Brazilian Burrito and their Festival Burrito on the menu. The Brazilian Burrito consists of plantains, mushrooms, leeks, chopped jalapeño, black beans, organic brown rice, avocado, garlic aioli, and habanero cream cheese in a whole wheat tortilla wrap, and it comes with spicy raw sauce on the side. You can get it mole style for $2 extra. Their Festival Burrito Stuffed is jackfruit carnitas, brown rice, beans, lettuce, guacamole, pico de gallo, spicy pickled cabbage, garlic aioli, and habanero cream cheese in a whole wheat tortilla wrap.
All Sage locations are offering pickup and delivery.
Although they’re not right in LA, Sea Casa in Westlake Village—off the 101—is pretty vegan-friendly, and it’s worth checking out to try their two vegan burritos. Their “Vegan Burrito” is a grilled veggies, guacamole, tofu, your choice of black or pinto beans, and brown rice in a whole wheat tortilla. The “Quinoa Burrito” is organic quinoa, fresh spinach, guacamole, and black beans wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.
Call in or place your order via DoorDash or Uber Eats for pickup and delivery.
Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill
If you’re looking for a good chain restaurant with vegan burritos, head to your closest Sharky’s. This vegan-friendly Mexican chain offers two vegan burrito options. One is their off-the-menu “AJ Burrito,” a low-fat whole-wheat tortilla filled with organic brown rice, black or pinto beans, steamed broccoli, and guacamole. The other is their “Organic Tofu & Veggies” burrito that you can get in the low-fat whole-wheat tortilla or in a flour tortilla (both are vegan). Plus, they’ve got a great salsa bar to spice up the burrito of your choosing. Order on Sharky’s website for takeout or delivery.
While not all-vegan, organic Mexican restaurant, Tocaya, has lots of vegan options. Basically, for all their different mains (e.g. tacos, bowls, burritos), you choose a style and pick a protein and cheese to go with it. All three burrito styles can be made vegan if you choose vegan protein and cheese options. Vegan proteins are their “Vegan Picadillo,” a pea-based protein with veggies, spicy “Adobo Tofu,” and their “Cilantro Lime Vegan Chicken,” which features Chipotle Marinated Gardein Vegan Chicken with grilled onions, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime. For vegan cheese, there’s vegan mozzarella and vegan chipotle jack.

Trejo’s Tacos by Danny Trejo is not fully vegan but has a good selection of vegan options, including two burritos—their “Young Jackfruit” burrito (jackfruit, rice, beans, cheese, verde slaw, pico de gallo, and tortilla strips) and their “Mushroom Asada” Burrito (filled with mushroom asada, rice, beans, cheese, verde slaw, citrus marinade, and salsa verde).
Their La Brea, Hollywood, and Westside locations are open for pickup and delivery.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
