and eat delicious vegan food. We decided to stay in Venice right on the beach and within walking distance of Abbot Kinney. We reserved one day to enjoy the Venice area, we did Barry’s Boot Camp and then explored Abbott Kinney, where we found Plant Food +Wine.

We had to try their famous artisanal cheese plate, which featured Porcini Truffle, Harissa Jack, Red Wine Fennel and Spirulina Blue Cheese. I have never seen such a beautiful cheese plate. Every plate presented was stunning, beautifully plated, colorful, vibrant and of course delicious.

We enjoyed our lunch outside on their outdoor patio. Surrounded by trees, plants, and their own herb garden.

Whether you’re vegan or not Plant Food + Wine should be at the top of your must go to list.
