Included In

The inside of Crystals Soul Cafe—a small, family-run vegan dinner spot in West Compton—looks a lot like a Barbie dreamhouse, one where plants hang from every available space, and hot-pink lighting and colorful art are everywhere. That creativity applies to the plant-based food, too. There's the psychedelic soul plate made with marinated and fried oyster mushrooms on a pretzel bun, sushi fries topped with vegan shrimp mango and dynamite sauce, and sprouted smoked red beans and truffle rice. The sheer amount of options here is a little dizzying, but if you don't where to start, get one of the fully loaded po' boys and the housemade pecan caramel cake.
