There are many things that we like about Monty’s new Echo Park outpost - it’s a lot bigger than the original, their plant-based shakes are still thick as hell, and they give out free stickers at the register. But perhaps our favorite is their convenient new Sunset Blvd. location. Stop by after a day in the park or before a drink at Bar Flores for one of our favorite vegan burgers in the city. Make sure to try their new blueberry milkshake too, which was presumably created to pander to Dodgers fans (and blueberry fans).
