Olivia is a plant-based Asian fusion restaurant within Koreatown where the menu is creative and also completely vegan. With beautiful decorations and kind staff, you will enjoy your time at Olivia for a new experience.
Specializing in vegetarian cuisine with vegan and gluten-free options. The produce is fresh and not produced while serving delicious pizza, bowls, salads, and sandwiches. It’s difficult to incorporate vegan items into Asian cuisine as meat is an important part of Asian dishes. The chef and staff are always welcoming and willing to answer questions regarding the food as customers are deeply moved. Having a vegetarian restaurant in Koreatown proves how diverse the community is becoming as older restaurants are more focused on only using meat, chicken, and fish as many Korean dishes include it.
It is located in a Korean strip mall on the third floor on Vermont Ave and 3rd Street. There is a Starbucks nearby, and Lock & Key in the building right next to Olivia.
The customers all enjoyed everything on the menu as it was creative and one of a kind. The well-loved dishes that customers recommend would be fried olives, fried “chicken” oyster mushrooms, mushroom pizza, and buckwheat noodles. But you should try their menu as the restaurant does not use fake meat but tries to use vegetables purely for their taste and flavor.
Olivia should be your next trip as they use only vegetables and have gluten-free options available. Vegan food in Koreatown is not common, but Olivia doesn’t disappoint in bringing a newer light to creating vegan dishes.
