A Grocery Store Houses The Best Deli in LA
Some of the best restaurant finds aren’t where you expect to find them at all. Take for instance an Eagle Rock grocery store, Organix, that has found a huge following for their vegan deli counter.
LA Weekly reports that their Instagram followers (a whopping 17K) have declared that their comfort food offerings are meatless magic. Burgers, burritos, and tacos are being made to order, and served on a handful of picnic tables in the back of the store. Owner Andrew Perez wants everyone to be clear it’s not fast food, though. “We often get grouped with fast food because of the ambiance in here and being a deli rather than a restaurant,” he told LA Weekly.
And it’s true, patrons can’t expect to get in and out, with a weekend wait of up to forty-five minutes. The Peuro, their popular take on pulled pork, is a labor-intensive ten step transformation of jackfruit. It’s even been lovingly nicknamed the “Veganizer.”
A vegan chicken burgers and a BLT are among other popular items on the menu. Perez promises more to come, as diners suggest classics the team can veganize. The team is looking for support on their Go Fund Me page, as they hope to expand to meet their demand.
