Where to Find Vegan Flan in Los Angeles
Stop by one of these spots to grab a slice or two of vegan flan!
This delightful dish has quite an extensive history, but it’s most widely recognized as a sweet caramel custard dessert most popular in Spain, Mexico, and Latin America. Flan is traditionally made using eggs and milk—but leave it to us plant-eaters to find a way to veganize it! These vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants have mastered the sweet, decadent flavor and light, creamy texture of this iconic dessert. But beware, this article may cause you to drool! Here’s where to find vegan flan in Los Angeles.
In case you missed it, Orange County’s Inner Peace Cafe changed names to Saigon Vegan Restaurant—but don’t worry, they’re still serving up the same amazing dishes! Their Fabulous Flan is composed of house-made creamy custard with drool-worthy coffee caramel sauce. It makes for a great ending to one of their flavorful entrees like Chicken Curry Stew, Radiant Ragu, and Pad Thai.
