Cafe Flourish: new Miracle Mile vegan

Us Wilshire Blvd. workers are always happy to see new places joining the tired selection of restaurants between Fairfax and La Brea. A new vegan spot, Cafe Flourish opened a few weeks ago in this historic art deco building at 5406 Wilshire. They've got quesadillas, ruben sandwiches, chocolate-peanut butter pie, cookies, cupcakes coffee and more, and a few preliminary reports on Yelp. I was on my way to beef up at Umami, so I didn't try it, but I'll try to walk over soon since I love my veggies just as much as my meat.
Turns out Quarrygirl tried Cafe Flourish yesterday, and says it "truly has its shit together." Jackfruit tacos, huh? Wonder where they got that idea?

jackfruit has a texture similar to meat--it has been used as a vegan substitute for awhile now. i think in la they use green or unripe ones.

pure luck does theirs as carnitas and uses it in tacos and tortas; they also do a pulled pork version.
