Our Story

In late 2017, owners Kimberly & Michael travelled to South America and spent weeks wandering in Peru and Bolivia. They travelled with shaman from the Andean community of indigenous Q’ero people who, as shamans, preserve an ancient magical knowledge and are sacred healers. The Q’eros live in union with nature in every way, and they taught us that food pulled from the earth has healing properties and can be thought of as medicine. As a multi-generational vegan/vegetarian family, we are incredibly honored and excited to apply this concept in our own plant-powered kitchen at Modern Shaman.

Born and raised in Whittier California, Michael is also the owner of The 6740 restaurant/pub right next door. At Modern Shaman, our mission is for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores from all over the area to connect with each other and with this great community in all of its richness while enjoying sustainable, locally sourced food made with love. Our delicious vegan food is good for you, good for the animals, and good for the earth. The music will move you, the decor will soothe you, and the food will comfort and inspire you. We look forward to serving you.
