Everything on the menu is open to vegetarians at this Vietnamese restaurant that opened its doors in Anaheim in 2004. With so many flavorful choices, from claypot and curry dishes to warm pho and even vegan sushi, Thuyen Vien attracts meat eaters as well as vegetarians. Owned by a husband and wife team, Thuyen Vien is something of a local gem, one that OC Weekly voted as having the “Best Pho.”
Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
Presented in the style of a New Orleans restaurant, with French Quarter architecture, an open courtyard, a New Orlean’s-style jazz club and even a balcony that overlooks the ever-active Downtown Disney strip, Ralph Brennan’s makes a great stop for vegetarians en route to Disneyland or in the mood for Louisiana ingredients. The menu includes Eggplant Ciabatta, Red Beans & Rice, Creole Onion Soup, French Quarter Salad and numerous seafood dishes presented with Creole flair.
Orange Loving Hut
Found in nearby Orange, this health food spot is self-dubbed a burger restaurant. Vegetarians won’t mind, though, because everything on the menu is vegan and meatless. Even the egg rolls are made without eggs. The goal is to offer fast and healthy choices, cooked in unsaturated oils, loaded with protein and low in sodium. Find American and Asian-style entrees, including spring rolls, fried rice, pho and lemongrass vegan chicken, as well as wraps, vegan chicken burgers, classic burgers and house subs.
Most vegetarian restaurant lists include at least one Mediterranean choice because the region’s cuisine inherently features numerous meatless ingredients. Kareem’s Restaurant is one such place in Anaheim, specializing in a variety of flatbreads and everything you can think of with which to fill them. Hummus, baba ganoush, falafel, and grilled vegetables come to mind, all presented in a homey atmosphere.
