Vegan tacos!!! - Edit

I ate here last weekend for a Vegetarian Society of DC book club discussion of Meatonomics - how perfect is that? I ordered the Taco Trio, and learned (like previous reviewers) that all but one of the tacos on this all-vegetarian menu are veganizable. I chose the beet, butternut squash, and sautéed cabbage tacos. All were great, though the cabbage was my favorite.

Pros: fresh and delicious tacos, friendly, knowledgeable staff, attractive environment

Cons: have to ask which tacos are vegan

Vegetarian Tacos! - Edit

This place is amazing! There is really only 1 or 2 places in GTown that boasts an all veg menu, so it is nice that Chaia added to that eatery collection in this part of town.

What can you eat here? Tacos! All of them can be vegan except the creamy kale and potato - just ask for them to hold the cheese / cream sauces on the others. The veggies are fresh and tacos are deliciously made with fresh homemade corn tortillas! The best corn tortillas for tacos in the entire city (IMO)!

Fresh pressed juices, coffee, and other beverages (wine, too) are available. They have some baked goods from a local bakery, as well. Side dishes complement these delicious veg-based tacos, including a rice dish and a salad.

Everything here is fresh and delicious. You will love it. Walk a little further south off the main M Street drag to find this hearty, happy, all veg taco shop. You will be so happy you did!

Pros: 100% vegetarian, Vegan is easy!, Fresh veggies

Cons: 1 taco is not vegan, Not 100% vegan, No nachos

hidden gem! - Edit

This is an absolutely adorable spot. You can get the tacos and sit inside or sit outside in the adjacent little shaded garden courtyard. First I was disappointed because all of the tacos are heavily cheese or cream-based. But it turns out that they can make any taco vegan, except one. They also sell incredibly delicious vegan homemade cookies! And the black beans side dish is phenomenal. We tried a sampling of every type of taco possible (except the creamy kale, which cannot be made vegan). They were all excellent, but my favorites were the beet tacos and the mushroom ones. When we asked for everything vegan, the sales clerk made it really easy. She said that they substitute a non-dairy sauce, but we didn't ask exactly what they did or what they used. Whatever it was, it was excellent :-)

Fresh veggie tacos in Georgetown - Edit

Went to Chaia for dinner on 4/9 based on a recommendation from the daughter of the guy sitting next to me on the plane out to DC. She was right - good vegan and vegetarian food made with very fresh ingredients. I had the 'creamy' kale + potato, the mushroom, and the butternut squash taco combo. All were very tasty (about $10), as was the side of black beans. The spring greens taco was also very good.

Pros: Fresh, mostly vegan choices, Quite willing to modify for vegans, Pleasant, cozy atmosphere

Cons: Not many tables, even counting upstairs, Gets busy by 5:30pm
