10 Spots for Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower in Los Angeles

Feb 2, 2020 BY: Allie Mitchell

Buffalo cauliflower is perfect as an appetizer, meal, or snack, and it’s versatile, classic, and straight fire (literally and metaphorically!). It has that same comforting taste and feel of wings, but still makes you feel slightly healthy because, ya know, cauliflower is a vegetable, and vegetables are good for you. So if you’re an enthusiast of buffalo cauliflower, or are looking for the best of the best in LA, you’re going to want to check out this list to get your cauliflower on!

Sage Vegan Bistro

Echo Park, Pasadena, and Culver City

Sage does not disappoint with their buffalo cauliflower. Get their classic Cauliflower ‘Wings’ to enjoy tempura cauliflower in your choice of buffalo, sweet & sour, or BBQ sauce (with a side of celery, carrots, and ranch), or go all out with their by ordering their 3 ‘Wing’ Platter, a platter with an assortment of cauliflower in the three different sauces. Or, you can even have the best of both worlds and get try their buffalo cauliflower on pizza (Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza), in a salad by ordering their Hot ‘Wing’ Salad, or wrapped up in their Hot ‘Wing’ Wrap.

Mohawk Bend

Echo Park

Mohawk Bend is a vegan/non-vegan restaurant/gastropub in the heart of Echo Park. They have some of the the best buffalo cauliflower, with the perfect amount of spiciness and crispiness outside, paired with their creamy “bleu cheese” dressing and celery. Don’t forget to try some of their other menu items while you are there too, such as the “Big Mohawk,” a double patty Impossible burger, or have another version of cauliflower, with their cauliflower steak in their “Steak & Potatoes.”

Word of Mouth Truck

Food Truck

What place has mac ‘n cheese bites, buffalo cauliflower, truffle fries, and is on wheels? If you guessed the Word of Mouth food truck, then you are a winner! Their Buffalo Cauliflower is fried cauliflower tossed in buffalo sauce, and is accompanied by celery, carrot, and house ranch. Take our “word of mouth” (get it?) and catch this truck ASAP to find out what all the rage is about!

Jesse Boy


This vegan-friendly Hollywood spot is doing it right with their vegan Korean Fried Cauliflower. Although it is not technically “buffalo cauliflower,” it’s almost like Korean twist on it, packed it with flavor. You can get made original or spicy, and choose your choice of rice, fries, or sesame salad as a side.

True Earth Vegan

North Hollywood

Raw vegan friends, fear not because True Earth Vegan, an all-vegan, raw-friendly spot in the NoHo Arts District has you covered for all of your buffalo cauliflower needs. Their Raw, Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower is raw cauliflower marinated in a probiotic vegan buffalo sauce, and is served with cashew nut ranch dressing. What’s not to love?

Cafe Gratitude

Multiple Locations

We’re feeling grateful because Cafe Gratitude has a variety of wonderful plant-based eats, which obviously includes their Buffalo Cauliflower. This dish is flash-fried and covered in adobo buffalo, plus comes with celery and spicy cashew aioli and is almost too good to share.

Veggie Grill

Multiple Locations

If you don’t already know what Veggie Grill is, where have you been? It’s basically America’s largest all-vegan fast food chain. They offer their Crispy Cauliflower served with buffalo or sweet and spicy orange dipping sauce. It goes great with one of their fresh lemonades or teas!

6th & La Brea

La Brea

There are vegan options galore at this restaurant. Check out their Buffalo Cauliflower here, which is fried cauliflower tossed with hot sauce, served with vegan blue cheese and celery. Also, check out their other vegan options, like tofu banh mi, and burgers featuring the Impossible patty.

Jackfruit Cafe

West LA

Although Jackfruit is the lead role in this plant-based food truck, they couldn’t leave out their amazingly tasty Cauliflower Wings! Theirs are tossed in buffalo, bbq, or jerk sauce, and served on a bed of lettuce, alongside fries.

Native Foods Cafe

Westwood and Costa Mesa

Native Foods is another vegan fast food-style spot with a huge menu, including their Spicy Cauliflower Dippers — fried, panko-crusted cauliflower dippers with your choice of Buffalo, spicy Korean, or Thai Chili sauce. Served on a bed of shredded cabbage, carrots, and green onion, and with a side of ranch dipping sauce. Do yourself a favor and head to the nearest Native Foods Cafe for those, and don’t forget to grab their vegan twist on the childhood classic, Oatmeal Creme Pies, for dessert too!
