There seems to be an understanding among certain people in Mexico that vegetarian and vegan food must be bland. As if people only eat it to settle queasy stomachs. This place is great if you are on a flavor-restricted diet. Although I typically enjoy spicier fare, the food at Comedor Familiar Vegetariano was refreshing in its simplicity. It probably would be therapeutic for digestive problems. To be fair, I asked for vegan food when the fixed menu was vegetarian; the vegetarian offerings might be more adventurous. I greatly appreciated that the chef was willing to accommodate my request. The owners are welcoming and friendly, as are the patrons, who give a warm "buen provecho!" to their fellow diners as they exit.
