A tractor is not necessarily what one would expect to find in the middle of a big city like L.A, you'll find it in front of the Sage Vegan Bistro though in Culver City, California. After planning on going there for a long time, finally last weekend I made it happen.
The simple but unique look of the restaurant interior design, a combination of rustic wood and metal supported by farm themed decor is an invitation to come for dinner, to be part of the crowd and indulge in a plant based feast at the long main table of Sage Vegan Bistro.
Arriving later in the afternoon we were able to choose from both, the lunch and the dinner menu and I must say, I had a hard time making up my mind with every dish being guilt free and many choices offered.
Sipping on green tea and just this time passing on the many beer, drink and wine choices, we decided to order the Jamaican Jerk Burger, a patty made from black beans and walnuts, with jerked crimini and leeks, sliced refreshing mango, caramelized onions and mango saffron aioli. Who needs meat?
Our second choice was the "Fish" Taco made from Jackfruit with avocado and spicy cashew cheese.
On a side note, next time I'll trade the chips for the optional lettuce.
For dessert we sampled a scoop of "Vacation" ice cream with banana, coconut and chocolate flavor. The dessert menu isn't overly big and the lack of desserts featuring fresh fruit was a bit disappointing to me but overall, it's a great place to go for good and very tasty food.
We'll be back on a Thursday or Sunday evening, when live music adds to the vegan dining experience, slowly working our way through the menu.
