Review: I was in NO for a conference just last week and as usual I was not expecting to find anything vegan in a city with seafood restaurants in every block. To my surprise, I found a few hidden vegan gems! With a unique style deco, Carmo's menu reflected such character. It included various unique vegan dishes and exotic drinks. I tried the Vegan Rico sandwich made out of a grilled plantain, vegan cheese, avocado, and topped off with the in-house made "rico" tangy sauce. It was delicious, the sauce and the avocado was a unique but delightful combination. I paired it with two glasses of Caja juice, a mango like flavor yet distinct, an excellent drink. While enjoying my dish, I met a vegan couple from NY, Kate & Reuben who also tried the Rico sandwich. We had a nice chat about Carmo's menu and vegan stuff. They are very knowledgeable about veganism. I'll definitely keep this restaurant on my list next time I visit NO.
