Good Mexican Restaurant

Posted on 06 / 21 / 2014

I have been here several times and have been very impressed with the vegetarian/vegan options which they have for pretty much everything(possibly everything). I thought maybe it was slightly more expensive than I would have liked. However, considering the food quality and that it is a Mexican restaurant in Korea, I think it's definitely worth it. I thought the food tasted pretty authentic too.

Vegan friendly

Posted on 08 / 01 / 2010

Owner is a former vegan and has recently changed the recipes for the guacamole, rice and beans so they are all vegan. They use a mushroom alternative to meat, no tofu or mock meats. Nearly all the items on the menu can be ordered vegan. Meals cost 8,000-10,000 but were very filling, and tasty if not a little too salty. They also have fresh made corn chips.

Pros: good value, rare mexican vegan, easy to find
Cons: little salty, light on the beans
