Beelman’s lost the pub in their name, but kept all of the great pub features, while turning this into the home to some of the finest vegan cuisine in all of Los Angeles. Beelman’s has a little of everything, but managing to perfect a 100% plant-based menu to go along with a superb craft beer lineup is a stroke of genius.
Beelman’s offers up a perfect Los Angeles setting. Meaning a little bit of everything, for everyone. A great outdoor patio setting to enjoy the Southern California weather, a beautiful bar and an eclectic dining room, not to mention a takeout window. But it all starts with Chef Caroline Concha and her menu that will make any meat eater a fan of vegan food.
It is not only being able to create 100% plant-based items that can pass the taste and texture test, but it is also the flavor combinations that Chef Caroline brings to each dish that sets Beelman’s apart. The Viet Nom Nom Wrap not only has become a favorite at Beelman’s, but it showcases the depth of each dish.
This dish starts with the citrus ‘spare rib’ cutlets and the first thing you will notice at the texture and flavor of these plant-based cutlets are so close to ribs, you will swear you are eating the real deal. The wrap is filled with cutlets and joined by rice, green papaya, pickled daikon, carrots, Thai basil, cilantro and romaine. You get a wonderful Asian flavor along with a great spiciness to the dish creating a wonderful flavor combination that all balances fabulously.
The vegan burger has certainly been elevated in recent years and the Impossible Burger from Beelman’s certainly does the same. The Impossible Burger patty was something that took years to develop and they did a wonderful job bringing everything that you enjoy about a burger into this patty, minus the actual meat. The best way to enjoy this burger is think of one of your favorite burgers, close your eyes and take a bite and you will be convinced that this a simply a damn good burger.
If you love what has come to be defined as comfort food, nothing quite fits the bill in the vegan world as well as the “Tachos”. Instead of chips you get crispy and crunch tater tots, which are truly addicting. Those are smothered in a smooth and creamy cashew cheese that has all of the great texture and flavor of what you expect cheese to be like on nachos. It is then finished off with everything about nachos you love, including, salsa, housemade pickled jalapenos, Bird’s Eye chili pinto beans & cilantro and Soyrizo and Gochujang Crema. It doesn’t matter if you are vegan or not, you will love “Tachos”.
Great flavors lead to even better food and that is the case with Beelman’s. From a vegan hot dog with all the fixings to an unheard of vegan entree like chilaquiles to a moco loco, the one thing you will find with Beelman’s is consistently great food.
What really sets Beelman’s apart is the combination of great craft beer and cocktails to go along with the fabulous vegan food. Beelman’s has one of the best draft craft beer lineups in Los Angeles, as you will find rotating handles that have included beers from; Bagby Beer Co., Lost Abbey, Three Weavers, Founders and more. If your idea of a great Saturday or Sunday afternoon is having a unique and flavorful beer with great bar food while you take in a game, Beelman’s was made for you.
