My Top 4 Restaurants in and Around Redondo Beach

The Green Temple Vegetarian Restaurant

Restaurant | "The Green Temple"

Quote:
This place is an excellent vegetarian restaurant. They have live music on the weekends, the food is great and always consistent. I highly recommend the Sproutada or the Mushroom Walnut loaf, or Tuesday's special; the Vegetarian Curry. To drink, get the Iced Tea (which is called something I can't spell), but they'll know what you mean if you say Iced Tea. The only bad thing about this place is that the service is awful. Don't be in a rush when you go here, and don't expect to get good service. If that bothers you, consider doing takeout.

Riviera Mexican Grill

Restaurant | "Reviera Mexican Grill"

This place is a local favorite, so expect there to be a wait every night of the week. The wait is worth it though. I love their Tofu Fajitas, and this is the only place I've ever had a Vegetarian Chimichanga. If you like spicy salsa, ask for the hot salsa!

Ole Fire Grill

Restaurant | "Ole "

This is Mexican food by Good Stuff restaurant, which is right next door. They have hand made tortillas here, and on the weekends they serve breakfast. I always get the veggie tacos, but I hear the fish tacos are great, although a little expensive considering it's fast Mexican food. The salsas are excellent, always fresh.

They have fantastic Indonesian food here. I like the fact that they offer Veg. Nasi Goreng (fried rice) with Tempeh. I always order a side of peanut sauce to go with it. The ambiance is great here, and the food is always good and consistent.
