Good mexican food - Edit

Had the burrito with beans. No problems when I requested without cheese and sour cream. Only waited 5 or so minutes to receive it and it was delicious and filling. Definitely want to go back to try other options.

American style Mexican food with good vegan options - Edit

Some of their locations are "Taquerias" (more casual) and others are "Bar and Grill" (restaurant style with additional menu items). This location is a bar and grill.

I've eaten at most of the different Cali-Mex's numerous times, including this one. I really like the vegan options.

If you want a dish vegan - some options are:
1) Veggie options (mixed bean / mixed vegetable / spinach) of Burrito, Taco or Salad, stating you want it WITHOUT dairy cheese or sour cream - relatively healthy and not too expensive
2) Venice Beach Vegan of Burrito, Taco etc, which comes as a default with soy chicken, tofu sour cream and soy cheese - tastes amazing!!
3) Mexican lasagne and vegan nachos (veganised nachos are also really good).

Agreed that it is best to check about charges for add-ons beforehand. It can add up, but I rarely find this type of food elsewhere in HK for vegans.

Service has been ok in my experience - we previously experienced some confusion among staff about whether Venice Beach Vegan comes with vegan add-ons as a default; however, we understand they discussed with their staff and have resolved this now.

nothing wrong with this joint - Edit

The foods fantastic and although they might charge a little. Ore for vegan options, at least they have them unlike most places in town. I eat here a lot. A lot.

Cali-Mex - D'Aguilar St - Edit

I've plenty concerns with Cali-Mex:-

a) I've also experienced the poor reputation they have for cust service. e.g. Their zeal to upgrade your order to a more expensive version without checking with you first. And they have tried to bill our group for bottled water that was neither ordered nor consumed. They then tried to defend this when the bill was contested

b) They charge extra for vegan cheese compared to the non-vegan equivalent

Cons: Attempts to rip off customers, Charges vegans extra
