Respond to Review of Pan Comido Vegetariano - Tonala
Review: As a vegan traveling to Mexico for the first time I was very skeptical about how well I would eat. On my first day we came across this gem in the heart of the city. and all I can say is I ate VERY well for the rest of my trip! Pom Comido is very modern and quirky, with interesting touches, Ike serving drinks in jam jars and beautifully hand written menus. Everything is vegetarian but almost all dishes can be adapted to vegan if requested. The first meal I tried was the veggie burger. Being a vegan and not eating cheese, the cheese in my burger was replaced with Tofu, which worked really well. It was served in a nice basket with crisps on the side. I also tried the "Burritos" I had mine with black beans and mushrooms with Tofu. again it was delicious! As for deserts I really wasn't expecting to be able to order one at all, but to my suprise there was at least 3- 4 vegan options. I had the vegan chocolate cookie. Here in the U.K. I actually bake professionally as a vegan, and I honestly could not have made this cookie better myself. It was amazing! The staff were nice and keen to help, despite some of them having limited English. They were very accommodating too. As I arrived in Mexico City from Cancun where everyone accepts dollars. I naively thought that this was the same for the whole of Mexico, but to my suprise. No. The owner manager? was very kind to exchange my $50 note for Pesos on the condition we changed it back with her the following day. This was very trusting of her and showed very good customer service. All I can say is that any Vegan or Veggie traveling to Mexico City much try Pan Comido.
