• new vegan breakfast sandwiches at locali

    March 22nd, 2010quarrygirlLA restaurants, locali

    i’m a fan of the hot food at locali, so i was super excited when i heard they were adding two new vegan breakfast sandwiches to their menu.

    after trying them, i can tell you both of the sandwiches have a few things going for them: they taste pretty good, they are under 5 bucks, and they are served all day long.

    the greg's beenedict: english muffin topped with vegan canadian bacon, avocado, tomato, and vegan hollandaise sauce. $4.50

    the first of the sandwiches i tried was the greg’s beenedict. locali’s take on the vegan benedict is different from most places because it turns the dish into a sort of open-faced sandwich. it’s basically an english muffin topped with some sliced vegan deli meat, sliced tomato and avocado, and vegan hollandaise. while locali’s hollandaise sauce is phenomenal, i must say that i missed the fluffy tofu that usually comes in a vegan benedict. still, this thing was very good…and at $4.50, i can’t fault the price. here’s the benedict as served at locali:

    the second new item they’ve introduced is the badass breakfast sandwich…

    the badass breakfast sandwich: vegan sausage patty, daiya cheddar, organic maple syrup and special sauce on an english muffin. $4.50

    this thing comes with a sausage patty, melted daiya cheese, maple syrup, and special sauce all between a sprouted english muffin. if you like stuff that is both sweet and savory, you will really love the way the sausage and maple syrup combo. the cheddar daiya tastes amazing as does the special sauce…my only complaint is that the sprouted muffin is a bit too “healthy-tasting”. all in all though, it’s a great sandwich for under five dollars.

    head over to locali and try these new vegan sandwiches for yourself. and they aren’t just for breakfast, they make great dinners and lunches too. 🙂

  • ummm i’m gonna have to go try these. today.

  • Oooh the Benedict sandwich so good!

  • These look delicious.

  • The benedict looks like it’s swimming in sauce. Is it really a sandwich, or do you eat it with a fork?

    I tried the Badass and agree the muffin is a bit too ‘healthy’ tasting, but in comparison to the Taste of Life version, it feels much less greasy. Admittedly, that taste of life biscuit is pretty damn good…

    The spicy, creamy special sauce Locali puts on it is *really* good imo.

  • Oo, they should let me have the benedict for free since it’s apparently MINE. 😛

    “my only complaint is that the sprouted muffin is a bit too “healthy-tasting”.”

    Yeah, I was gonna say, that looks suspiciously wheaty. That can ruin a sandwich, in my book, depending on the sandwich. (For the love of god, NEVER use wheat bread for grilled cheese!)

  • Anyone know what kind of vegan sausage Taste of Life or Locali use? I haven’t found anything decent& I’ve looked all over.

  • You don’t like the Gimme Lean sausage? I like how you can mold it into whatever shape you want, and you can add more fennel etc. if you want. I’ve tried pre-formed stuff like the frozen Trader Joes sausage and didn’t think it was spiced enough; but you can’t do anything about it since it’s already cooked. Gimme Lean is flexible.

  • I don’t cook, so I need something I can pop in the microwave–Gimme Lean wouldn’t work for me on a regular basis. But I really appreciate the tip!

  • These look so good. I’ll have to skip my beloved vegan reuben and get on next time I’m at Locali.

    If you had to pick, where in town has the best vegan hollandaise?

  • I love love love club sandwiches, so I finally made it into Locali last week. It was pretty tasty & nice staff too. 🙂

  • oh yes, on your rec, I got the Amy’s mac & cheese. Wow, that was good. Just needed a little hot sauce & I was in heaven.

  • It’s been a while since this post but want to thank Greg for his input. We are on the East coast so it may be a while before we can visit.
