Peddler's Creamery, due Downtown next month

Recently revamped stalwart Brite Spot is getting with the new boom times in Echo Park by adding a patio and ditching its frozen meat substitutes and processed vegetarian ingredients for a new selection highlighting fresh produce and handmade product for its legions of meat-free H-Words, whether they like it or not. The restaurant's exec chef, Darby Aldaco, tells LAist he'll be making veggie burgers and baking vegan desserts in house, and suggests jacking the jack-fruit taco idea from Highland Park's Plant Food for People for anyone looking to ditch the sat-fat in their Mexican diet. Elsewhere, LAist also announces a brick-and-mortar coming to Downtown from Peddler's Creamery, Edward Belden's pedal-powered, pop-up ice cream and sorbet biz that offers organic dairy and non-dairy flavors like chocolate chili, Thai iced tea, and choco-banana. Belden plans to contribute 5% of his profits to various causes-in-need and is looking to debut the new shop at 458 S. Main Street by October 7. [LAist]
