Best vegan food stall

I was so excited to find this place! To find a vegan food stall in Mexico was such an exciting experience for me. And the food was amazing! I dream about the complete sandwich. And the tiramisu !! So delicious. This needs a visit!

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff, Cheap

Deli y barato jeje

Las tortas siempre están increíbles, recomiendo pedirlas de doble guisado para que valgan más la pena. Además pueden llevar frijoles, mayonesa, lechuga, jitomate, pepinillos y cebolla.

Increíblemente delicioso.

He ido a Gatorta al menos 10 veces y nunca me arrepiento. Todo está riquísimo, mi favorita es la torta de salchicha con pastor. Con una torta podrías quedar muy satisfechx. Sus gringas son deliciosas, el queso es riquísimo, al igual que sus hot dogs. Sus postres también son un must para degustar, mi favorito es el tiramisú. Siempre es una gran opción elegir este lugar. Tienen mi corazón.

Amazing torta and dessert!

This is the fourth stop on a vegan taco tour in CDMX and even though I was stuffed, I couldn’t pass up the torta and tres leches cake! I’ve eaten a lot of sandwiches in my life and this was one of my all time favorites!

Such a great vegan sandwich

I chose the torta 3 guisados because I was so hungry (I selected pastor, chorizo and salchichada).
Be aware it is very messy but worth every bite!

Pros: Choirzo is nicely spiced and not too spicy, Fresh , Sauce was fantastic!

Cons: Messy

These tacos are unreal and come in crazy big portions… We tried the chorizo and pastor, both were amazing and honestly just 1 will full you up as they’re double wrapped!

Pros: All vegan , Cheap & delicious , Big portions

Good cheap eats

The tortas here are great value for money. The $85 MXN cubana is easily, easily enough for two meals. I ate the whole thing because I didn't want to have to carry it, and I felt waaaaay too full for the next nine hours. The torta itself was quite good, loaded up with pickled veggies, avocado, onion, every fake meat at their disposal, and the bread was great. It might be best as a to-go item where you can kinda take it apart a bit and try the meats individually, because otherwise they do kind of get lost in each other.

The counter of the stand has hand sanitizer available and three different salsas to choose from with different flavors and spice levels. There's a darker red one that's thicker and has a bit of a smoky chipotle taste to it, that's my favorite.

One complaint: way too much plastic use. The sandwiches are served to you wrapped in plastic wrap to keep them together, and then served on a styrofoam tray even if you're eating there. To-go bags are also plastic. I'd really like to see a switch to something a bit more sustainable.

I ordered a torta, cheesecake and chocolate bread covered with sugar. The torta was ok. The soy meat tasted too much like onions. It is not bad but the onions take away all the other flavors. I would not order again. The cheesecake was the best cheesecake I ever had. The chocolate bread too. If you are in the area I would say you must try it. If you are far I would not drive here just to have a taste. Search for their menu online. They don’t speak English at all.

Our go to take out spot

What can I say except this is our go to lunch or dinner spot while in cdmx. It’s cheap, tasty and keeps you full for at least half a day.
