10 Must-Try Plant-Based Burger Joints in Los Angeles
You’re going to want to get your hands on these burgers ASAP!
We are lucky to have so many places to order vegan burgers in Los Angeles! But with the abundance of restaurants that serve plant-based handhelds, it can be hard to decide where to go. That’s why we created this list of 10 must-try plant-based burger joints in Los Angeles! From the food and service to the nostalgic vibes, these establishments have it down!
Beverly Grove, Culver City, Echo Park, Koreatown, & Riverside
It’s always poppin’ at Monty’s Good Burger! This hip vegan joint offers beautiful plant-based burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, tots, and shakes. The menu may seem simple at first, but check out Instagram for the endless customization options and secret menu items.
From the team behind Veggie Grill, Stand-Up Burgers is LA’s newest vegan burger spot. Serving everything from classic singles and doubles to burgers with vegan bacon and blue cheese crumbles, Stand-Up Burgers does not disappoint! Don’t forget a creamy plant-based milkshake to wash it all down.
Hollywood & Long Beach
This vegan fast-food restaurant is the perfect combination of nostalgic and futuristic. Its menu of veganized fast-food classics like burgers, chicken nuggets, fries, and soft serve will throw it back to the good old days. Don’t even get us started on their breakfast sandwiches!
We are obsessed with the BBQ ‘Facon’ from nomoo! It features a Beyond patty with house-made vegan bacon, American cheese, BBQ sauce, and fried onion strings on a brioche bun. Everything at nomoo is vegan, non-GMO, soy-free, and downright delicious.
Downtown LA & Highland Park
Almost everything at Burgerlords is made in-house—including their burger patties! Whatever burger you choose, we suggest ordering a side of tofu nuggets and a tahini milkshake to complete your meal. You’ll thank us later.
This punk rock vegan burger joint passes the vibe check for sure! The burgers can be ordered with your choice of an Impossible or Beyond patty, done up with a blend of seasonings. Customize your handheld by requesting vegan chili, mac ‘n’ cheese, scrambled eggs, or guacamole on top.
Mid-City & Venice
Honeybee’s iconic namesake burger is one for the books! It comes with a Beyond or Impossible patty layered with cheese, house-made onion jam, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and house sauce. Upgrade it to a combo to get a side of Frots (fries and tots) and a creamy vegan milkshake!
This McDonald’s-inspired vegan burger joint is all the rage on TikTok. And once you see the red and yellow branding and try the nostalgic food, you’ll know why. For your first time, we’d suggest ordering Mr. Charlie’s Frowny Meal. It comes with a vegan burger, chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink.
Are you tired of regular burger buns? Hit up Flower Burger for a more colorful vegan burger experience! From purple and pink to green and blue, all of the burger buns are colored naturally with ingredients like spirulina and purple carrot extract.
Blazin’ Burgers serves some epic vegan burgers! Load yours up with vegan queso, onion rings, bacon, JUST Egg patties, or whatever else your heart desires. Might we suggest a side of vegan, gluten-free chicken tenders and bee-free honey mustard to pair with your burger?

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.
