I had some time on my hands in Huntington Beach the other night so I decided to try a new (to me) vegan restaurant.  They call their food “World Peace Cuisine” and so each of the menu items has a name related to the theme.  Yelp reviewers gave Vegan Nirvana great ratings so I figured I couldn’t lose.

I was right, although I missed having Clara with me, here are five things that I thought were awesome about Vegan Nirvana.

Jackfruit Limeade – The thing that jumped out at me in the Yelp reviews was the mention of the Jackfruit Limeade.  Made with, you guessed it, jackfruit, lime juice, and natural sugar this beverage was the perfect starter during one of the hottest days of the year.  It had a mimosa feel to it without the alcohol and was just the right amount of sweetness combined with the crispness of the lime and jack fruit.  It would be worth stopping by just for this delicious beverage.

Selfless Savior – This is what they called their sweet potato fries.  Fried and seasoned perfectly with their homemade seasoning, they were complemented by the non-dairy ranch dipping sauce.  I’m a big fan of sweet potato fries and these were some of the best I’ve had.

Kingdom of God – Talk about a tough name to live up to, the Kingdom of God is a chicken-less wok dish made with a Korean BBQ sauce.  There were two types of meat substitutes, one was tofu and the other was a soy, pea powder concoction that had the flavor and texture of chicken.  Mixed with kale, broccoli, cauliflower, red onion, red bell peppers, and just enough jalapeno to give it a kick without overpowering it.  I had it with the multi-grain rice.  The dish had a satisfying crunch to it and was enough for two, I took half home for lunch the next day.

Strawberry Ambrosia Cheesecake – This light, sweet treat was the perfect taste bud reward.  It was deliciously creamy and the graham cracker crust was just right.  One of the things I miss with plant-based eating is creamy desserts.  This dessert fit the bill perfectly and I didn’t miss the dairy at all.

World Peace Ambiance – The art on the walls matched the World Peace cuisine of the restaurant.  It had a warm decor, comfortable seating and pleasant employees.

If you are in the Huntington Beach area, I highly recommend this bit of culinary nirvana.  It is located at the corner of Warner and Beach Blvd.

Gratefully – Bruce
