Favorites include Roman Caesar salad, fried olives, squash blossoms, tempeh piccata, and chili cheese fries. To finish off the meal, the couple opt for a matcha latte and brownie sundae topped with brandy cherries.

Kardashian also shared the couple’s secret restaurant, Ma-Kin Vegan Sushi, which is located in a strip mall in Agoura Hills. “Okay, I wasn’t sure if I was going to share this one, because it’s my secret sushi spot,” Kardashian posted on the blog. “But here at Poosh we’re all about sharing secrets, so here you go. No frills, just a cute little vegan sushi place in a strip mall.” Here, the pair indulge in spicy tuna over crispy rice; salmon sashimi; Six Seven rolls (a crispy roll with shrimp tempura and crab); miso soup; and a mandatory iced matcha latte.

The Kardashian Clan Explores Plant-Based Eating

Barker became a vegan after surviving a plane crash in 2008, and Kardashian has leaned heavily toward a plant-based diet since the two began dating. This year, the couple had multiple wedding ceremonies and after their first Las Vegas elopement, they found time to go on a “vacation” at West Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont with vegan brand Daring Foods.

As part of the “Saucy” campaign, the duo posed in a sexy photo shoot captured by iconic photographer Ellen von Unwerth, who photographed the couple enjoying vegan chicken from Daring Foods. “Honestly, I can’t believe how much chicken it tastes like,” Kardashian said in a statement at the time. “There are a lot of plant proteins out there, but we are always looking for options that are super clean with all-natural ingredients. That’s why I love Daring.”

The rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family have also experimented with plant-based eating in recent years. Kim Kardashian has been outspoken about transitioning to a plant-based diet, and in 2021, she hosted a vegan cooking class to showcase her Beyond Meat stuffed taco recipe at Kourtney Kardashian’s virtual Poosh Your Wellness festival. This Kardashian sister also partnered with the Beyond Meat brand earlier this year as their official lead flavor consultant.

Menus at the Las Vegas locations are crafted with the same care as Crossroads Kitchen’s original West Hollywood location, where the food has impressed many celebrity guests over the years. “A lot of people don’t realize it’s vegan when they first visit because the food tastes so much like the non-vegan versions (it’s honestly magical, who knew non-dairy cheese could taste so good),” Kardashian posted. about Crossroads. on her recent blog. “All dishes can be shared, so bring some friends and try everything. PS: Coming soon to Calabasas.”

And Kardashian is right. After opening its Las Vegas location, Crossroads Kitchen is planning an additional outpost in Calabasas, which is scheduled to open this fall. This location will feature a private dining room to help celebrity guests retain their privacy. “We have had many guests over the years who suggest that we open [in Calabasas] and a spot became available that we really liked,” Ronnen previously told VegNews. “We will have a private dining room available for anyone who wants to reserve it.”
