Best Hot Vegan "Tuna" - 2008
Tempeh Tu-No Melt at Flore Vegan Cuisine
In the heart of Silver Lake, on the other end of the hipster spectrum from the Golden Bridge's spiritual village, is Flore, which boasts cute, grungy, rock & roll waiters and an eclectic array of vegan dishes. My favorite: the Tempeh Tu-No Melt, a food-combining train wreck of tempeh salad and cashew cheese on toasted seeded bread. It's hot, it's messy, it's sweet, it's savory — it's a perfectly orgasmic combination of texture and taste, and I'm salivating just thinking about it.
