Shannon Cotrell Vromage owner Youssef Fakhouri

Non-dairy cheese is nothing new. Vegans and lactose-intolerant folk have been figuring out the best way to make a faux grilled cheese sandwich or mock quesadilla for some time and it was only a matter of time before someone — naturally, an L.A. someone — thought to create a vegan-cheese oasis in the form of an all non-dairy cheese shop. Its name? Vromage. While there are vegan restaurants (like M.A.K.E. in Santa Monica) that serve non-dairy cheese on platters and top vegan tacos with almost-melty orange shreds, Youssef Fakhouri's Vromage stands alone in its exclusive all-dairy-free-cheese business model. After a five-year period of trial and error, Fakhouri developed the recipes for the 17 various non-dairy cheeses available in his Hollywood shop on Sunset and Laurel. Inside the simple shop, the cold case displays plates and containers of Fakhouri’s mock mozzarella, brie, cheddar, pepper-cheddar and “veganzola” — his most popular.
