Being VEGAN and living east of Los Angeles, we don't have a lot of options when it comes to eating out.
But, as of last weekend, things have changed.
Located in Uptown Whittier and open 7 days a week.
Even though they serve animal products, they do offer many vegan/vegetarian items.
Very casual and easy parking.
They serve sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies, and juices.
Check out their menu by clicking on the link above and visit them when in the area.

This was our first time here.
We didn't know what to order so the cashier recommended the VEGAN BEEF GYRO for my husband.

Marinated veggie beef,roasted sweet peppers,onions.guacamole.salsa,shredded lettuce and Vegenaise aoli served on pita type bread.
Husband loved it, but it was a little too hard to eat.
It got soggy and kept falling apart.

I was more in the mood for a simple CUCUMBER SANDWICH.
Cucumber,tomato,avocado,sprouts,red onion, and VEGENAISE aioli. Served on whole wheat bread.

We also tried their BANANA DATE SMOOTHIE, but forgot to photograph it.
A little too runny for me, but husband loved it.

Sandwiches were delicious.
Very fresh tasting.
We can't wait to go back again to try their other vegan options.

Isn't Fenix the best? My daughter is a student at Whittier and it is our new favorite (for lunch - for dinner it's Phlight). My daughter keeps telling me to blog about both of them! Plus the owner at Fenix is so nice and friendly - we love going there and have had all of their vegetarian offerings (we're not vegan). Glad to see someone else loves them too!
