Upon moving to LA I fell in love with The Vegan Joint quickly for one major reason: they deliver. If you’ve been paying attention to this blog at all you know how much I love having food brought to me in my jammies.
The Vegan Joint has an interesting mix of menu items from Asian inspired dishes to burgers and wraps. When I’m in the mood for warm comfort food, their Chinese Soup can’t be beat. Broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, cilantro, onion, napa cabbage, shitake mushroom, glass bean noodles and tofu….YUM!
On this particular afternoon when my husband and I were both starving (and grumpy) we opted for a couple heartier dishes. We started with the crispy spring rolls (I can never say no to fried food) which were stuffed full of shredded veggies and came out hot, crisp and golden.
For my entree I went for the Chow Mein with tofu, which didn’t look like the chow mein that I’m used to but it was very flavorful with lots of large chunks of veggies. The tofu was cooked just how I like it, a little crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. They went a little overboard on the bean sprouts, but overall a very good dish.
The husband ordered Kung Pao with tofu and brown rice. It looked so bright and beautiful I kind of had entree envy looking over at his plate. Again, the dish was loaded with a ton of veggies and large chunks of tofu. He’s a bit harder to please than I am, but I think he enjoyed it.
