This past weekend we had the loveliest time celebrating my sister and her boyfriend's birthdays, yes, they both have the same birthday. Our restaurant of choice? Crossroads Kitchen by Chef Tal Ronnen. I think I have to deem this my absolute favorite place to eat. Their food is at another level. My favorite part? Crossroads isn't a place that highlights being plant-based, it highlights good food. It's a place for food fans. The theme is Mediterranean, and you're not going to find the typical tofu steak and tempeh wraps other plant-based restaurants serve. With the perfect combination of flavors, textures, colors, a superb atmosphere and welcoming staff, Crossroads is definitely a place you must experience when in LA.
My favorite dish? The Moussaka. I can't go there and not order it.
Would I recommend this place to my fellow vegans? Absolutely!
Would I recommend it to my not so vegan friends? Yes, yes, yes!
