Many people ask me what my favorite vegan restaurants are or where I can easily eat out. When I went to answer them, I realized that my answers varied depending on which city I was in. I truly believe California has the best vegan food. For me, veganism started on the west coast. Growing up in Orange County, I was able to find my favorite restaurants that I loved and cherished, even to this very day. It’s also, where I have seen the most growth and expansion in vegan culture and vegan dining. Just google “vegan restaurants” and you will see a plethora of amazing restaurants to choose from. But here are some of my true favorites.
