Maciel’s Plant-Based Butcher & Deli
Maciel's is your best bet for a vegan sandwich in Highland Park, and possibly all of LA. Here they blend Mexican ingredients with the kinds of cold-cut classics you'd expect from an old-school deli. And they make all of their own plant-based meats in-house, including bacon, pastrami, chorizo, and chicharrones. Their chorizo breakfast sandwich on a fluffy brioche bun is only available until 1pm, but you can order filling options like a juicy Mexican BBQ short rib or loaded Italian with meatless salami and chopped pepperoncini all day. Keep this spot in mind if ever want to bring a vegan charcuterie platter to a party, too—they sell a bunch of plant-based meats and dairy-free cheeses by the pound from their deli case.
