#2: Chef Tanya’s Kitchen (Palm Springs, CA)

What they’re known for: Yelpers recommend ordering the El Cubano filled with slow-roasted garlic and citrus seitan, mayo, mustard, cabbage, pickle, onion on a toasted Torpedo roll.

All vegan, all amazing.  The specials make me want to go daily and the heavy hitters like the Cubano are a reliable and consistent favorite.

#4: Thanh Tinh Chay (San Diego, CA)

What they’re known for: Yelpers love the BBQ “pork” Bahn Mi sandwich filled with vegan mayo, jalapeño, Vietnamese pickle, house sauce, fresh cucumber, and cilantro.

Best Vietnamese food I’ve ever had! Whether you’re vegan or not, it’d be hard for anyone to dislike the food. Definitely try the BBQ “pork” banh mi sandwich, crispy “chicken” with eggplant, the vegan flan & moon cake!
