I’m a creature of habit, so when I’m obsessed with a place or product, I can’t get enough of it, so repeat buy and consume. As you may or may not know, I’m living in between London and LA at the moment and my last few weeks in Weho saw me visit this place 4 times in the space of 2 weeks lol. Every lunch meeting or dinner with friends and I’m like “Let’s go to Gracias Madre, you’ll love it even if you’re not vegan”. That is certainly no lie though, as I think it’s one of the few places that’s invariably frequented by lots of “carnivores”. I get the feeling that meat-eaters genuinely love this place as it’s not like a kale and tofu only veggie / vegan establishment due to it’s super unique and tasty menu.
So it’s a Mexican restaurant with absolutely NO meat or dairy on the menu, yes that includes the delicious “crab cakes” !! (which by the way you HAVE to try)
Much of the cream sauces are made from cashew nuts and the desserts and cocktails, alcoholic or not, are out of this world.
So if you live on the west coast or you’re a visiting LA, head to 8905 Melrose Avenue
West Hollywood, CA 90069 … Oh and I recommend you make a reservation, as this place is practically always busy, and I don’t want you to miss out so it’s :
+1 323-978-2170 … You’re welcome!
