• the club club: flore vegan

    January 8th, 2010quarrygirlflore, LA restaurants

    as you may know, we here at quarrygirl are determined to eat all the good vegan club sandwiches in los angeles and compare them for you readers. this week our club comes to us from flore vegan in silverlake, and i must say it is a damn fine contender for the #1 spot.

    club sandwich: battered baked tofu, tempeh bacon, tomato, avocado, lettuce, daikon sprout and eggless mayonaise on sourdough bread. served with choice of potato salad, side salad, or fruit. $9.95

    flore’s club sandwich is pretty hefty and comes stacked with baked tofu, tempeh bacon, tomato, avocado, lettuce, and daikon sprouts. it weighs in at $9.95, which is nearly a buck 50 more than the club at follow your heart, BUT this one comes with avocado (which is an extra charge at FYH) AND a hefty side salad.

    i would definitely say flore makes one of the best vegan clubs i’ve ever tasted. maybe it’s because the succulent tofu is battered and then baked, so it has all kinds of flavor goin on…or maybe it’s because the strips of tempeh bacon are extra thick and smoky. or maaaaybe it’s the way the slightly toasted bread mixes in with the creamy avocado and juicy tomato. i dunno, but everything about it is just so…perfect.

    when ordering any sandwich or burger at flore, i always opt for the potato salad as my side dish. it really can’t be beat, and a side of leaves or fruit just doesn’t come close. trust me, this stuff is awesome.

    so there you have it, flore’s delicious club sandwich may just be the best in all of LA. there are still so many to try though. be sure to comment with your favorite.

  • I am sooooo with you on the potato salad. The only place that does it better is M Cafe’s wasabi potato salad. Both are epic.

  • I’ll have to check it out. In the meantime he Nite Moon Cafe’s vegan club is unbeatable.

  • I couldn’t agree more – it is the stuff of dreams. I think it’s the bacon that puts it over the top for me…or maybe you’re right – the mix of the vegenaise and avocado…I can’t decide, but I do know this: it’s heaven on a plate.

  • OH my God. I had this when I was in LA and I couldn’t stop talking about it! I’ve tried to recreate it so many times. It was absolutely amazing.

  • I love this Club, one of the things I get there all the time. I’m so routine!

  • I concur! I was determined to try everything on the Flore menu (separate visits) and was about 5 items into my exploration of every dish that they have when I hit on this sammich. I have been there 3 times since and can’t bring myself to try anything new- just the Club w/ tater salad every time. Soooo good!

  • Enjoy every sandwich.

  • Meh, I’m not down with slabs of tofu in sandwiches/burgers.

  • love the club at Flore! It can be hit and miss depending on who makes it, but damn, when it is on it is AWESOME! the tofu is perfect. I want Flore Now!!!

  • Went to Flore last week for the first time. The Club and red potato salad were Delish! Too bad the service is your typical “let’s completely ignore the customer and see how long they notice” shit. The place was practically deserted on this wkday. So if that wasn’t so bad, then the same thing happened trying to get the bill. I must have looked for a waiter like 10 times. Needless to say, I was totally late going back to work after my friend and I drove out of our way to get to Flore. Never again……
