Veg Out: Buena Park's Top Spots for Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten Free Dining

With so many fabulous restaurants in Buena Park, there are ample opportunities to find a meal that suits your dietary restrictions whether you are vegan, vegetarian or avoiding gluten. From a plant-forward meal of Greek salads to a Beyond Meat burger, these filling and flavorful meals will have you returning again and again.

California Dreamin' burger at Rock and Brews in Buena Park, CA

Tacos la Calle

(Vegetarian) The mushroom tacos at Tacos la Calle are an excellent choice any day of the week as they come loaded with grilled mushrooms, onions, tomato, cheese, pico de gallo, and beans. They're served on two corn tortillas with onion, cilantro, and salsa for a plant-forward taco with a kick.

Rock and Brews

(Vegetarian) Satisfy those burger cravings, vegetarian style with the Beyond Meat California Dreamin’ Burger at Rock and Brews. A Beyond Meat patty is sandwiched in between a brioche bun with double melted cheddar, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, and Thousand Island dressing. You won't miss the meat, that's for sure.

Kitakata Ramen

(Vegan & Gluten Free) When a cold snap hits, head to Kitakata Ramen and order up the vegan ramen. You'll be in for a real treat of savory vegan broth, miso base, seasoned tofu, veggies, garlic, and sesame oil. Go gluten free and swap out the ramen noodles with the gluten free noodle option.
Three pizzas on countertop at Pizza Studio in Buena Park, CA

Farmer Boys

(Vegetarian) Go all in with the veggies and order up the veggie burger at Farmer Boys. You'll get a veggie patty, crisp lettuce, freshly-sliced tomato, dill pickles, yellow onion, and house-made Thousand Island dressing on a toasted sesame seed bun. Fresh and delicious!

Pizza Studio

(Vegan & Gluten Free) Get your pizza vegan-style and don't compromise on taste at Pizza Studio. Order up The Vegan and you'll have the flavorful rosemary herb crust, tomatoes, minced garlic, vegan cheese, vegan sausage crumble, red onion, roasted red pepper, garlic, roasted broccoli, truffle salt, and basil. Want it gluten free too? Swap out the crust for the gluten free option.

Smoothie bowl and cup at Protein Lab in Buena Park, CA

Blaze Pizza

(Vegan & Gluten Free) The Vegetarian Pizza is where it's at when you order at Blaze Pizza. It all starts with a gluten-free cauliflower crust (trust us, it's delicious!), red sauce, mozzarella, ricotta, artichokes, kalamata olives, red onions, and spinach. Swap out the cheese for vegan cheese if you wish.

Protein Lab

(Vegan) Who would think that a spot called the Protein Lab would be where it's at for vegans and vegetarians? All their shakes, smoothies, and superfood bowls can be made vegan upon request. Add on plant protein if you so desire. We recommend the Fruity Kettlebells protein smoothie for vegetarians that comes with almond milk, vanilla whey, organic agave, Fruity Pebbles, strawberries, and non-fat yogurt.

Sushi at Aburi Sushi in Buena Park, CA

Aburi Sushi

(Gluten Free) All sushi falls into the category of gluten free (hooray!) and we recommend you go for the local favorite Buena Park roll when you dine at Aburi Sushi. It is the perfect bite of seared albacore, asparagus, avocado, and shrimp tempura.


(Vegan) Do yourself a favor and order up the lomo saltado at SUP where you'll get French fries topped with tomatoes, charred red onions, homemade aji verde aioli, and vegan tofu. Served with white rice, it's big enough to share.

Grilled Portobello Sandwich at Portillo's in Buena Park, CA


(Vegetarian) Portillo's knows how to make their sandwiches the star and the grilled portobello sandwich is no exception. It's a flavor bomb with grilled marinated portobello mushrooms, red onions, tomato, and mozzarella cheese, served on toasted tomato focaccia that's smeared with basil pesto. Yum and yum.

Sunrise Cafe

(Vegan) You won't miss the meat when you order up the vegan home fries mix at Sunrise Cafe. Home fries are combined with bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, tofu, and soy chorizo. Pile it on a tortilla and top it with some hot sauce.
Lentil soup at Porto's in Buena Park, CA

Myungin Dumplings

(Vegetarian) Filled with a sweet red bean paste, the steamed dumplings are a vegetarian staple at this spot that's all about dumplings. Another favorite for vegetarians at Myungin Dumplings is the classic green onion pancakes.

Porto's Bakery & Cafe

(Vegetarian) There's nothing quite as satisfying as a warm bowl of soup and Porto's does it well with the lentil and vegetable soup. A hearty, vegetarian soup that's slow-cooked with lentil, onion, carrot, celery, turnip, butternut squash, and potato, it is finished with sautéed Tuscan kale, parmesan cheese, and extra virgin olive oil. Served with a toasted slice of Porto's sourdough baguette, this is a filling meal any time of day.

Hot pot at Miss Shabu in Buena Park, CA

Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner

(Vegan & Gluten Free) The taro root "scallops" are the popular choice when you are looking for a vegan option at Mrs. Knott's. Flavorful and filling, these come pan seared and served over vegan herb rice pilaf with steamed asparagus and a balsamic glaze.

Miss Shabu

(Gluten Free) However you like your hot pot served up, Miss Shabu has you covered with flavorful broths, high-quality proteins, and plentiful veggies. Opt for the gluten free rice noodles if you are a gluten free diner and don't skip the rice porridge at the end!

Three corn dogs at Myungrang Hot Dog in Buena Park, CA

Myungrang Hot Dog

La Huasteca

(Vegetarian) The traditional chile relleno is always a solid vegetarian choice at La Huasteca or you can go for something more unique and try the vegetales huastecos. Sauteed julienne vegetables are smothered with sour cream and served with white rice and mashed beet.

Kaju Tofu
