The BEST place in Utah for vegan Mexican food!

4 Posted on 10 / 06 / 2014

This place is worth the drive from Salt Lake if you are craving good Mexican food. The potions are huge, the vegan menu is extensive, the food is beyond great, and the owner is so nice and accommodating. I had heard great things about this restaurant, and was not let down. We tried the bean soup (vegan and SOOOO GOOD), a burrito made Chimi style with soyrizo (excellent), taquitos made with potato (sounds weird but I loved them), fruit salad with almonds (good), and the chips and salsa bar (how can you go wrong with fresh-made salsa? - It was great!). I liked the fact that they clearly label the 3 salsas that are not vegan with a sign stating "NOT VEGAN" (2 dairy and 1 honey). This place is the best reason to drive into Provo, IMO.

Pros: Huge menu, Large portions, Great vegan food

Best place for Mexican veg

4 Posted on 04 / 14 / 2014

By far the best place in the area for good, varied vegetarian Mexican food. Lots of veg fillings, including veggies, beans, and even tofu. And their flan (not vegan) is delicious.

Pros: Good value, Lots of variety

Love that they have the options for soyrizo or tofu. You can pretty much order any type of Mexican dish and have it the way you want it. The mole sauces were tasty also.

Pros: big portions , friendly staff, options

Looking for restaurants with vegan and gluten free options is always a challenge, this one had so many options that it was difficult to choose. Absolutely delicious, fresh, clean and knowledgeable staff! I just wish we had one of these in casper,wy. Will definitely return every time I'm in Provo!

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing

SO GOOD

4 Posted on 11 / 02 / 2012

This is seriously my favorite Mexican place EVER. It's so good! They have a few different vegan options for filling: soy-rizo, two kinds of tofu, veggies, and potato. My personal favorite is the soy-rizo or grilled veggie chimichanga with vegan sour cream, cheese, and guac.

The vegan sour cream and cheese isn't on the menu yet, but just ask at the counter for it. They have had it every time I go.

The chips and salsa are also to die for!

UPDATE: In the winter they have THE BEST VEGAN HOT CHOCOLATE I'VE EVER HAD. GET IT. NOW. It's topped with cinnamon and soy whipped cream!
