Restaurant Review

Plant Powered Dietitian Sharon Palmer, R.D.

Mohawk BendWe tried Mohawk Bend in the Echo Park area last week. I was with four of my dietitian friends, and we were blown away with the flavorful vegan food (much of the menu is completely vegan!) served in a cool, hip environment in this emerging neighborhood. This place is all about fresh, and local food. The space is actually a retrofitted Vaudeville theater, which is so cool for this part of town. But the food was what I couldn’t stop marveling about. We shared a number of dishes among our little group.

Buffalo Cauliflower

Ok, you’ve heard about Buffalo Chicken, but what about Buffalo Cauliflower?This vegan dish was amazing—a familiar sweet-spicy, red sauce
topping the cauliflower, served with a vegan bleu cheese sauce and celery sticks. My favorite dish of the night.


Heart of Palm Crabcakes

Here was my second favorite dish: vegan crab cakes made of hearts of palm atop couscous and a vegan tzatsiki sauce, garnished with picked red onion, shaved fennel, and mint. Divine!


Our third small plate we shared was arancini—little risotto balls filled with peas,vegan sausage,and cashew cheese served with marinara and basil. Yum!



Able Farmin PizzaWe decided to split a couple of small pizzas, since Mohawk Bend is famous for their brick oven pizzas. There was a whole section of the menu with vegan choices! We settle on the Able Farmin’ with roasted red pepper, fennel, cashew cheese, and house-made vegan sausage.

Napa Vegan Pizza

The second pizza we shared was this Napa pizza,
topped with fresh persimmon,smoked grapes, red onion, watercress, vegan bleu cheese, and balsamic vinegar.
This was my favorite!


Happy Camper Smores

The group just had to try a dessert—every single item on the menu is vegan! Our server recommend the Happy Camper S’mores, since it was perfect for sharing. The Happy Camper S’mores was delivered to our table in a piping hot cast iron dish—filled with vegan toasted marshmallows, melted chocolate, and house-made rustic graham crackers. Just top your cracker and munch!
