421 Calle Carlos LeBrum, Vieques, Puerto Rico, 0076

Serves meat, vegan options available. Mexican restaurant. Some of the menu items can be made vegan by leaving off cheese or subbing meats with veggies, such as chips and salsa, taco salad, burritos, and fajitas. The rice and beans are vegan, cooked with oil. Just tell the server you are vegan and they will tell you what they can do. Known for their hot sauces. Reservations are a good idea during season.

Great Food, Great Margaritas! - Edit

The best place we found during our stay on the island of Vieques! The expat owners were very friendly and welcoming, and the chef himself came out to discuss the vegan options on the menu - he even brought us a complimentary special vegan dessert to apologize for not having a fully vegan dessert item on the menu!

And of course, you have to go just to try their signature spicy margaritas.

If this place were vegan-only, I'd give it 5 stars.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great drinks, Knowledgeable about vegan options

Loved it! - Edit

This is definitely one of the best places we ate on Vieques. We heard it could get busy and we made reservations, however, when we got there, there was plenty of seating. But the place is small so reservations are probably a good idea, especially in season.

The owner pointed out vegan menu items we could get, and there was a large choice of items, from chips and salsa, to burritos, fajitas, and more. The owner also said she had celiac disease and noted that other than the chips (which are fried flour tortillas) and burritos, all menu items were gluten free as well. They will make anything for you with the ingredients they have.

We spoke at length with the owner, who told us the rice and beans are vegan (no chicken stick in the rice, and no lard or meat in the beans) and they cook with oil. She said you could easily leave off cheese or sour cream, and replace meat with vegetables. They are happy to make whatever you want.

We each had a burrito and it was huge - tons of food. You could probably share. Chips and salsa is fried flour tortilla chips which are yummy, with 3 types of salsas. We also got a margarita.

The place is known for their hot sauces (if you go to their regular web site, it only sells hot sauces - you won't even find info on the restaurant there). They have a couple dozen from mild to hot and most, if not all, are vegan. They can recommend some based on your preferences to try with your meal.

I'd definitely recommend eating here, as they can accommodate all different types of dietary preferences, and the food is excellent.
