Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker reveal their 28 favorite vegan meals in Los Angeles

Celebrity couple Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker (known collectively as “Kravis”) have just revealed their top vegan food picks in Los Angeles. Shared on Kardashian’s Poosh wellness blog, the couple’s favorite vegan food runs the gamut of cuisine from Japanese to Middle Eastern to classic Americana with a plant-based twist. In total, Kravis shared his eight favorite Los Angeles-area restaurants and takeout orders, as well as a guide to ordering vegan dishes at his favorite non-vegan sushi restaurants. The duo can’t get enough matcha lattes and order them with almost every meal.

For a nice dinner, Kravis heads to Crossroads Kitchen in West Hollywood where they order a wide selection of food. Some of their favorites include Romaine Caesar Salad, Fried Olives, Squash Blossoms, Tempeh Piccata, and Chili Cheese Fries. To end the meal, the couple opts for a matcha latte and a brownie sundae topped with brandied cherries.

Monty’s Good Burger

When he’s craving burgers, Kravis heads to vegan fast food chain Monty’s Good Burger where Kardashian says, “Vegan food tastes so close to non-vegan versions.” Here, the duo order vegan chicken sandwiches and the Travis Oat Matcha Latte Shake, a drink that started out as a limited-time collaboration but has remained on the menu permanently. For more fast-food classics, the couple like to visit Lucky’s in Malibu and Santa Barbara where they order Impossible Burgers (with extra pickles, no onions, no tomato), sweet potato fries and hot green tea for ” balance the fatty food,” according to Kardashian.

When a craving for Middle Eastern hits, the couple like to go to The Carousel in Hollywood. “I grew up eating at this restaurant with my family, and now we love ordering it for family dinners with our kids, so that’s sentimental to me,” Kardashian explained. “It’s my comfort food.” The takeout order here is hummus with pita, sarma vine leaves, coleslaw, muhammara and spinach fatayer, plus pickled turnips and olives.

For a healthy bite, the couple head to Health Nut, which has three locations in the Los Angeles area. There, they enjoy snacking on a high-protein salad made vegan by omitting the chicken and cheese and replacing them with avocado. Kardashian likes to accompany this meal with a mango iced green tea.

At Vietnamese plant-based restaurant Âu Lạc Downtown, the couple love to order vegan chicken and waffles, the Green Pyramid (a dish Kardashian describes as “living wild rice”) and matcha shakes. JOi Cafe in Westlake Village is a new breakfast favorite where the duo are given a breakfast burrito with sauce that usually accompanies the breakfast bagel – originally ordered by mistake they now made their order on purpose . Matcha drinks are among their favorites.

Kardashian also shared the couple’s secret restaurant, Ma-Kin Vegan Sushi, located in a mall in Agoura Hills. “Okay, I didn’t know if I was going to share this one, because it’s my secret sushi spot,” Kardashian said on the blog. “But we all want to share secrets here at Poosh, so here goes. No frills, just a nice little vegan sushi restaurant in a mall.” Here, the couple feasts on spicy tuna on crispy rice; salmon sashimi; Six Seven rolls (crispy roll with shrimp tempura and crab); miso soup; and a mandatory iced matcha latte.

At non-vegan sushi restaurants, such as Katsuya and Nobu, the duo offered some tips for satisfying plant-based dishes, including ordering miso soup (check that bonito flakes aren’t used for flavoring), edamame, artichoke salad without cheese, spicy avocado on crispy rice and avocado and cucumber rolls.

The Kardashian clan explore plant-based food

Barker went vegan after surviving a plane crash in 2008, and Kardashian has leaned heavily on a plant-based diet since the two started dating. This year, the couple had several wedding ceremonies and after their first marriage in Las Vegas, they found time to go on a “stay” at the famous Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood with the vegan brand Daring Foods.

As part of the “Saucy” campaign, the duo posed in a sexy photo shoot captured by iconic photographer Ellen von Unwerth who photographed the pair enjoying Daring Foods vegan chicken. “I honestly can’t believe how much chicken it tastes like,” Kardashian said in a statement at the time. “There are plenty of plant-based proteins out there, but we’re always looking for super clean options with all-natural ingredients. That’s why I love Daring.

The rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family have also been experimenting with plant-based eating in recent years. Kim Kardashian has opened up about her transition to a plant-based diet and in 2021 hosted a vegan cooking class to show off her recipe for Beyond Meat Stuffed Tacos at Kourtney Kardashian’s Poosh Your Wellness virtual festival. This Kardashian sister also landed a brand partnership with Beyond Meat earlier this year as the Official Chief Taste Consultant.

Crossroads is expanding its vegan restaurant empire

One of Kravis’ top restaurants, Crossroads Kitchen, is actually backed by Barker and owned by celebrity chef Tal Ronnen. The beloved restaurant opened its flagship location nine years ago on Melrose Boulevard in West Hollywood. This year it has expanded to Las Vegas as the Strip’s first vegan fine-dining restaurant. Operating inside Resorts World Las Vegas, this Crossroads location is also complemented by CB/Crossroads Burgers, a new fast-casual concept inside the same resort from which guests can order delivery to their rooms or cabanas by the pool.

The menus at the Las Vegas locations are all crafted with the same care as the original West Hollywood location of Crossroads Kitchen, where the food has impressed many celebrity guests over the years. “A lot of people don’t realize it’s vegan when they first visit because the food tastes so much like the non-vegan versions (it’s honestly magical – who knew non-dairy cheese could be so good)”, Kardashian said of Crossroads. in his recent blog. “All plates are shareable, so bring some friends and try it all. PS: it’s coming to Calabasas soon. »

And Kardashian is right. After opening its Las Vegas location, Crossroads Kitchen is planning an additional outpost in Calabasas, slated to open this fall. This location will come with a private dining room to help celebrity guests maintain their privacy. “We have had many guests over the years suggesting that we open [in Calabasas] and a spot became available that we really liked,” Ronnen previously told VegNews. “We will have a private dining room available for anyone who wishes to book it.”
