Vegan burgers are usually bad imitations of meat burgers, with crumbly patties covered in “cheese” made out of nuts. While you probably won't bite into a Monty’s Good Burger and think it’s meat, you will think it's one of the best vegan burgers you've ever had. This small spot in Koreatown (they’ve also got a location in Riverside) has a short menu with a single or double burger, fries, tots, milkshakes, and a kale salad (we’d advise you skip the latter). The vegan patties are griddled, the cashew cheese could almost pass for the real thing, and the non-dairy milkshakes are simply fantastic, which makes Monty’s a solid choice, whether you’re vegan or not.
