Finally! A restaurant with passion, with integrity, with purpose. I am vegetarian but I was dining with a friend who is 100% vegan. I am new to the area and asked about vegan friendly food at the organic shop up the road. The cashier highly recommended MagdaLuna.
We were there at an odd time, around 3pm so we had the place to ourselves. I looked around and saw a lot of brochures and table toppers with "cruelty-free" and "humanely raised" and similar language. I asked the girl at the register about the place and we had conversation about her mission with the restaurant. I could feel how passionate she was about setting a good example for other restaurants, for educating people about animal cruelty, and offering better options than factory farmed animal products. It was a great experience. It's not something I expected at all!
Onto the food!
I had a vegetarian "Sope" and my friend got the vegan version, oh and ALL the beans are VEGAN!! The refried beans on the sope were so tasty and the mushrooms had such great flavor. Everything was so fresh. I also got the vegetarian Enchiladas Suizas. That sauce was so good, I dreamed about it all night (not available vegan). I asked for extra tortillas to mop up the rest of the sauce.
My friend ordered the Burrito Uruapan. I had to have a bite. It was the best burrito I've ever had. I can't stress just how fresh everything here is. I am so pleasantly surprised to have found such a gem in my neighborhood.
Cons: No hard liquor :(
