What makes The Spot stand out to Healthy Vegans beyond its lineage is the low fat pledge on its menu & website.
"We are a natural food restaurant. Most of our menu is available fat free and non-dairy. We always serve organic whole grains, and legumes. We use seasonal organic produce when available. We serve and cook with purified water. Our homemade bread, cornbread and desserts are sweetened with raw agave. Our fat free soups never contain any oils or dairy products!"
The Spot happens to be one of the few places in Los Angeles where you can get a baked potato. It should come as no surprise that the healthiest and most perfect food on the planet is absent from the culinary scene in Los Angeles. We go straight for the Savory Spud and replace the Savory Sauce (which is what you're paying 11.95$ for) with one of their fat free sauces like the Mushroom Gravy or Red Sauce. The portion is huge and I advise splitting it between two people who also went for a cup of one of the soups (which are not to be missed). Ask for a tiny side of Savory Sauce to dip your fork in so you get a taste (and not a bath) of another mainstay of The Spot.
The Spud with Red Sauce
The Spud with Mushroom Gravy
The Open Burrito
Those are just a few of our favorites. In a time when Vegan restaurants are serving unhealthy disease promoting fatty equivalents of the garbage non vegans are eating its wonderful to discover a restaurant that cares about the health of it's customers. I use to turn my nose at Vegan 1.0, but I now relish it over all other vegan food and turn my nose at Daiya covered Soy Protein Isolate which was so amazing a short year ago. The Spot is so aptly named and I'm humbled to discover what has been an institution for nearly as long as I've been on this planet. Please make your pilgrimage to The Spot as soon as possible and pay homage to great tasting healthy vegan food that was done right the first time and I'm so glad I've gained the knowledge & palette required to appreciate it to its fullest.
