Meatless Meatballs in... Santa Barbara
The That | 12.21.16

MESA VERDE in Santa Barbara serves mostly vegan and a few vegetarian dishes.

All of their produce is locally sourced and tastes fresh and flavorful. The restaurant is boasting beautiful reclaimed wood, simple tables and beautiful rustic tableware.


Shared plates range from a Cashew cheeseboard, japanese eggplant to jackfruit Street Tacos.

The salads are gorgeous as well as the main courses: smoked Mushroom Lasagna, Spaghetti and Wheatberry Meatballs or various Flatbread Pizzas.

If you have space left in your bellies: for dessert my fave was the Chocolate Ganache , but I am sure everything else is worth trying as well.
