Should be 5 starts but app wont let me - Edit

The atmosphere of this place is so cute, great food but can be casual. I ordered the Soy chorizo tacos and it came with black beans on the side, the beans had chipotle mayo on them and when the waitress overheard how i was vegan took the beans back and got me new ones in the matter of seconds. Great costumer service!! Food was mouth watering as well.

Pros: Great costumer service, very fresh food , nice atmosphere

specify no cheese or cream on black beans - Edit

Delicious vegan tacos (tofu and soy chorizo)! The taco plates come with black beans on the side but the menu doesn't specify that those beans come with cheese and chipotle cream smothered on top. Unfortunately I got take out and did not realize that until it was too late. Still worth going just be sure to ask for no cheese or cream if you choose black beans! The avocado sauce is confirmed vegan.

Great Mexican Food with a Vegan Flair - Edit

Visited this place one year after the first visit and even though the menu has changed over time still the best Mexican vegan food in the Balboa Park area. The menu has expanded but the Vegan options did not seem to have followed the trend. The food was still great and priced reasonably well. Definitely a place to go if you are Vegan and in the San Diego Zoo or Balboa Park area

Gourmet Mexican - Edit

I just had an excellent tamale dish with greens, whole grains, beans and two sauces. Wholesome vegan and probably the best tamale dish I've had yet. Also had a cucumber starter dish and an excellent side of guac. All fresh and made with care. A bit pricey, but it is reflected in the organic fresh fare. Atmosphere is simple. Close to Balboa Park
