Vegan Chorizo Burrito

Posted on 10 / 13 / 2014

Nice place, friendly staff, good burrito! The salsa isn't terribly hot so don't be afraid going to "Hot" if you like it spicy. The chorizo itself was also quite good with a great thorough flavor. I will definitely be going back and trying their other things. They have a dedicated Vegetarian menu and a dedicated Vegan menu, so there's no confusion. Prices are comparable to similar burrito chains, though the portion did seem comparably smaller (but not by much). Overall, 4/5 considering it's Pittsburgh and hard to find a dedicated vegan menu in most places!

Pros: Vegan menu, Flavor, Location
Cons: Offers meat, Could be slightly less expensive, Closed on Sundays

I was pleasantly surprised with this place.

First - note that it's not a dine in restaurant (though they do have some stools)

When you walk in it's not really apparent how vegan friendly it is. One special taped to the large menu said "sweet potato & cauliflower tacos - vegan!"

So I walked up to the cashier and said "I'm looking for something vegan, looks like that's the sweet potato cauliflower?"

She said "actually we have a ton of vegan stuff" and then proceeded to name off things, like that the vegetarian beans were vegan, soy chorizo could be subbed in, etc. She was very helpful!

I ended up getting a sweet potato & cauliflower taco in a soft shell, a soy chorizo taco (w/ no cheese) in a hard shell, and a side of beans. The beans were really incredible

I'm glad I found this place via Happy Cow!!

P.S. This neighborhood is in the beginnings of restoration - so it doesn't look to exciting but this restaurant is a great start

Pros: authentic, helpful staff
Cons: only stools by the window for seating
