We've liked all of the vegan tamales we've tried at Pilar's, including eggplant, yam (last Saturday's special -- delicious!), black bean, tempeh and olive, and sweet plantain. The vegetables are often from local farms. The fried yucca root is incredible too -- crispy, hot and tangy. We like the bright atmosphere of the restaurant, but Pilar's also has a regular food cart at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market on Saturday. The owners are welcoming and knowledgeable about vegan options.
Cons: Limited menu
