The menu at Hermosa Beach vegetarian restaurant The Spot Natural Food Restaurant indicates that the place serves desserts, but unless you're the reincarnation of Andre the Giant, you'll never know for sure.
The people at The Spot are proud of the fact that their vegetarian restaurant has lots of customers who aren’t vegetarians – they are meat-eaters who just happen to like the food.The flavors are as rich as any other dining experience in the South Bay, but it’s better for you
Lots of places call themselves famous, sometimes an indecently short time after they start offering their services. The Spot is one of the few places in the area claiming that title that actually deserves it. It is L.A.’s oldest and best-loved natural foods restaurant, and the place has been under the same ownership for more than 30 years.
The Blue Zones – places where people live the longest and stay in the best health – have been studied for years, and menus that incorporate these healthy concepts are springing up in our neighborhood thanks to BCHD’s Vitality City initiative. These ideas may be new elsewhere but at The Spot they’ve been refined since 1981.
Yes, chili purists, a chili with beans won this year. A vegetarian chili with beans, even. And instead of going for the burn, this chili has a mild, fragrant character with more cumin and coriander than red pepper. It’s a different approach, with a different objective – not all about heat and meatiness, but about a rich, subtle flavor of beans, chili, onion, and herbs.
