Don’t miss this if in Niigata!!

One of the best veggie options in Niigata. Friendly, outgoing, English speaking staff and legit big ol’ veggie burritos 🌯. My only regret is that we only came here once during our stay.

I know it might seem weird to get Mexican food while traveling in Japan, but just trust me! Ask for the veggie menu before you go upstairs so that they don’t have to make an extra trip.

Very satisfying, fully-vegan meal

When I asked for a vegan wet burrito, the waitress immediately pointed me to the right sauce (Ranchero?) which had no chicken stock in it, and informed me that they also always had two kinds of rice available, and that the vegan one (made without chicken stock) would be in my burrito.
They usually drizzle sour cream on top of the burrito, but she ensured I got avocado slices instead. Their tortilla chips are fried not in lard but in vegetable oil, and the frijoles/refried beans are not made with lard either.
All in all, very satisfying meal including three kinds of beans (black beans, pinto frijoles & spicy lentils), soft corn tortillas, and freshly-made-from-scratch guacamole.
So good, I end up going there once a month or so! ^o^

Pros: Permanent separate vegetarian/vegan menu, Very aware of vegan needs, Very friendly staff, English and Spanish spoken

Cons: Small (five tables?), Fills up fast on busy evenings, so call ahead?
