Vegans with LA Angels tickets can look forward to plenty of food options that won’t make them feel guilty. While some cities make it difficult for vegans to find tasty treats, Los Angeles has a cornucopia of meatless, dairy-free foods. Angel Stadium even offers some vegan snacks.
Vegan Options at Angel Stadium
- veggie dogs
- black bean burgers
- bean burritos (order without dairy products)
Ask your server whether the veggie dogs and black bean burgers contain any non-vegan ingredients. Legends Hospitality, the company that runs concessions at Angel Stadium, could change its supplier at any time. Even a small change could mean that these options will include eggs, milk, or dairy byproducts.
Less-traditional baseball foods include:
- vegetable crudite
- roasted veggie sandwiches
- steamed asparagus
- green salads
- fruit salads
When in doubt, head to Melissa’s Fresh for You. It has plenty of fresh, vegetable-based foods that you might enjoy. Melissa’s Fresh for You has locations in sections 230, 317, 334, and 417. You can also find locations at the 1st and 3rd base food courts.
