Nice little restaurant

Has refreshing beverages such as kombucha and others.
Serves the traditional torta ahogada in its vegan version with tofu and avocado or falafel.
The no fish cauliflower tacos are really good!
Also the aguachile oyster mushroom tostada.
To finish up with a donut as dessert was the best.

Pros: Friendly staff, Accepts debit/credit card, All vegan!

Cons: The sauces could be a little more spicy.

Comida normal nada del otro mundo

La torta ahogada estaba buena, los chilaquiles también. Los tacos de coliflor estaban muy malos la verdad. En la Codina están gritando y “cotorreando” hablando groserías y leperadas mientras uno como y escucha todo. El personal no se limita con sus platicas llenas de indiscreciones cuando hay comensales.

Pros: Algunas cosas buenas otras muy malas, Personal es grosero entre ellos y traen una grita, No puedes comer agusto con tanto grito

A must!

We got the no fish tacos, the torta and flautas. They don’t use any mock meats or soy here and it was all vegetable based. The sauces and salsas were really flavorful. Worth coming here for the torta alone- it’s a vegan version of the salsa smothered kind that is famous in Guadalajara (ahogada).

We’re even thinking about Buying the cookbook it was that good!

Pros: Good portions, Enjoyable atmosphere, Friendly staff

Pretty delicious!

I wasn’t expecting the portions to be so well sized, nor the food to be so delicious and authentic- especially after seeing the super posh plaza el vegana resides in... but I would definitely eat here again, at least to try the fish tacos.
The tortilla soup was incredibly filling, and came with a satisfying portion of almond cheese as well as their delicious homemade tofu cream. I recommend. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, so I’m leaving only after eating the hibiscus flower stuffed enchiladas, which paired with the soup and detox Fresca, was waaaaay more than I needed...

Pros: The menu is entirely vegan, Authentic Mexican food and flavors, Prices aren’t terrible

Cons: Usually I prefer less ‘posh’ atmospheres

AMAZING fish tacos!

Their fish tacos are to die for, seriously you can't go to Guadalajara without trying them. The rest of the menu was tasty but definitely not the best Mexican we got in the city. Go for the tacos, then explore other vegan options in the city.

Pros: fish tacos!, good value

Cons: other dishes are good but not great, lack of ambiance , confusing opening hours

(No) Fish Delish

Located within a hip market, el vegano serves up a plethora of vegan options; while by no means poor quality food, many of the vegan options they are serving up can be found in other eateries around the city, and better. Be wary of the menu photos on happy cow - the prices are at least double, and they do not serve beer (my hungover self was disappointed to find).
That being said, the no fish tacos did the trick, and would be the only menu item I can whole heartedly recommend.

Pros: Lots of stuff

Cons: Pricey, Lack luster

Quería escupir

Pedí un taco de carnitas y otro de papas. El de carnitas sabía a pescado y tenía la textura de piel de puerco pero casi imposible de masticar. Si no hubiera estado de primera cita, lo habría escupido. No pude comerlo. El de papa no fue bueno, pero por lo menos, lo pude comer. Muy caro para basura

El Vegano

Great vegan food in a trendy location. We loved the “no fish” tacos in particular. We were served by one of the owners who was very friendly and also vegan.

Excellent food and service

I tried the no-fish tacos and the mushroom cocktail. It was really tasty. Very friendly staff. Busy food court with a good flair. Difficult to find a spot to sit and eat but it might have been the day I went - Sunday.

Pros: Fairly priced food, friendly staff

Cons: Seating difficult

Delicioso y saludable

Comí en su nuevo local, ubicado en el Jardín Americana. El guacamole viene muy bien servido. La ensalada de champiños fue riquísima. Y los famosos tacos de no fish también muy ricos.

Pros: Hay opciones muy saludables y ricas

Ditto to the other reviewers on the awesome No Fish Tacos !!

What a great conceptual use of cauliflower! Nice and chunky, lightly fried, then put in a double corn tortilla with the perfect amount of add-ons. Fast, bc I was on the run, CHEAP, too!!!

Delicious and exciting

El Vegano was coincidentally close to where my boyfriend and I were staying in Guadalajara. From our first meal there we were both wowed by it; we went back every day and each time had something different! I am gluten free as well as vegan and the staff were very knowledgeable as to what I could have. Breakfast is particularly good!

Another thing worth pointing out is that, as El Vegano is part of a large food park, it is also possible to get LA Cetto wine from the bar nearby, which is vegan as well as Mexican and really nice :D

Pros: Gluten free options, possible to mix and match wit

Try the no-fish tacos!!

Las enchiladas no están tan buenas, pero los famosos no-fish tacos son excelentes! También la lasagna está deliciosa, los precios son buenos. Está en el mercado así que si va un grupo grande todos pueden comer lo que les gusta :)

Pros: Está rico y tiene buenos precios

Cons: El estacionamiento del mercado se llena

my 1st vegan meal in Mexico

I must say as a vegan there are a few veggies I’m not a fan of (collie-flower being one), so I was a little hesitant ordering the no fish tacos which are made with them & WOW! Turns out to be one of my favourite vegan meals of all time!

I can’t comment so much on the service being that I don’t know Spanish yet, but they appeared very attentive

This is worth going out of your way to try!

Wonderful Vegan Food

The no fish tacos with fried breaded cauliflower were fresh and delicious! The cheesecake to die for. We will return at least once more before we leave Guadalajara.

Medium food

This place serves some good food but not everything is fresh. The salad looked quite old, the lemons as well. In general it wasn't bad but neither very good.

Pros: Nice neighbourhood, Not too expensive, Vegan

Cons: Not fresh, Not very tasty
