Kung Pao Feastro

Kung Pao Bistro 
7853 Santa Monica Blvd
West Hollywood CA 90046

Not only are you getting 20 posts from me this month but you’re getting 20 awful headlines. But we did have a feast at Kung Pao Bistro.

I had never been there before but have heard a lot about it for a while. It’s a meat-serving place but they have a whole vegan page on their menu. Overall, I’d say it was a mixed bag but I’d certainly be willing to go back and try more things.

Vegan Chicken and Spinach Wonton Soup

My favorite item by far was the vegan chicken and spinach wonton soup. The soup was delicious and so were the dumplings. And we got it at a happy hour discount price to boot. (4pm to 7pm).

Vegan Beef and Broccoli

The beef and broccoli had what tasted like VegeUSA fake beef. It was a little too sweet for me but the broccoli was very good.

Vegan Chicken Lo Mein

The vegan chicken lo mein wasn’t that great. The fake chicken was these weird crescent-shaped slices, and the noodles weren’t that great either.

Sauteed Garlic String Beans

The sauteed garlic string beans were very good. I will definitely be back to continue working my way through their vegan menu.

    The food looks good. Initially I click on your post to read about the restaurant and its food. Then I saw you mentioned VegeUSA. I actually worked at that company about 5 years ago for about 3 months. One day a customer called to order some vegan products. A lot of the products have vegetarian and vegan version. There was one item that the customer wanted, and we didn’t have any vegan one left, only the vegetarian one. So my boss asked me to peel off the vegetarian label, and put a vegan label on. I knew it was wrong, but I did listened to my boss. I felt really guilty after that, and quit my job a few days after. I did not want to work for a dishonest company like that. This incident happened a very long time ago. I really hope that is not how they do business now.
