With competition in El Segundo/Manhattan Beach stiff, the restaurant scene in the back development of Plaza El Segundo is fighting for life. In 2017, an outpost of Samosa House took over The Counter space at the front of the mall. But now, it appears, they have given up the ghost as evidenced by the papered-over windows. That leaves only three eateries left, including an increasingly isolated Veggie Grill.
It’s that time of year when popular vegan chain Veggie Grill unveils its Winter menu. Included on this year’s menu are: Turkey Dinner Sandwich, Koreatown Tacos, Pumpkin Spice Cake, and a new item from the Beyond Meat people that they’re referring to as a “game changer”, the VG Beyond Burger. Check out the entire menu of seasonal additions to their regular here.
This is a bit of a mystery… It appears that Santa Monica’s branch of perennially popular fast/fresh Mexican chain Poquito Mas has closed up shop at 2025 Wilshire Blvd., next to Veggie Grill. As you can tell from the photo, the space hasn’t yet lined up a new tenant, but I’ll keep watching.
It’s that time of year, when popular vegan chain Veggie Grill unveils its Summer menu. Included on this year’s menu are: hummus and za’atar flatbread, Koreatown tacos, chargrilled street corn, and Thai tacos. Check out the entire menu of seasonal additions to their regular menu here.
Ah Summertime, when one’s thoughts turn to the beach, balmy evenings, picnics, and… quinoa. At least that’s what popular vegan chain Veggie Grill wants us to think about. Every year about this time, they debut their new Summer menu items. Here’s this year’s list: Grilled Quinoa + Veg Burger, Mediterranean Toss with House ‘Feta’, Sonoran Summer Bowl, Haricots Verts with House-made lemon tahini dressing, and Chargrilled Street Corn.

Just in time for all those flagging New Year’s resolutions, Veggie Grill has rolled out its new “Mindful Living” menu. The concept is a focus on items that are “lower in calories, high in protein, nutrient dense, energy packed, and flavor-full”. Included are: banh mi salad, tres chickin’ tacos + black beans, chargrilled veggie + penne salad, and many more choices that you can read about here.
