This location is closed- Ixtapa is open

Tried to visit this location in the food court in Zihua but were told by the vendors it is permanently closed at this location. Ixtapa is still open.

Great place to take your omnivore friends

La Raiz de la Tierra is one of many kiosks in the Mercadito Zanka. (To the best of my knowledge, Zanka is a local slang word for friend.) There are plenty of other options for everyone. Before this visit, I had always stuck with the tacos which are noteworthy. The other options are burgers which I have really never liked that much to begin with. However, this visit I tried the Pollo Crujiente, the fried "chicken" burger. It's seitan. The French fries and salsa/ketchup were the highlights of the meal, to be honest. Sadly, there were not enough of each. The burger itself was admirable, but again, I am not a burger fan so please take note. Your mileage may vary. This was a Saturday night and there was an awesome salsa/cumbia band. Many locals got up and danced. Muy divertido! A lotta' fun! When in Zihua, vegans should put La Raiz de la Tierra on their agenda. They have another kiosk in Ixtapa, the sister city which is the resort town about 5 miles north.

Pros: Good vegan food at reasonable prices, Lots of other options for your omnivore friends, Great live music on a hot Saturday night!

Cons: Wished there were more fries and ketchup/salsa, Very limited menu but can't go wrong with da tacos

More than a food stand

When I saw the name of this place, I assumed it was a typical food stand on a street like you see all over Mexico and much of the world, except vegan. It is not. Rather it is a structure in a outdoor open air food court of about 15 different places. The food is really thoughtfully prepared. I got the five taco plate for 75 pesos (great value, omg!) I asked the woman in the kitchen to make a mix of the different kind of tacos she had. All tasty. The tacos were also made with blue corn (¡que rico!) Plus a lemon ginger elixir drink that is super healthy and tasty. Another night I got the 'chicken' burger - incredible good taste. Plus the spirulina lemonade. Also great.

If you are with non-vegans who don't want to eat vegan, because it is in a food court, you can come and they can get something else and you can all sit together outside on the nice stained wood picnic tables. Also there are a few places with beer and/or cocktails, in case you want alcohol with your meal. It is an amazing place with enough variety that you can come a few different times and try different things. A truly great resource.

One thing, sometimes there is music, which is good music, except if you were coming to talk with friends, because you won't be able to hear them. Asi son las cosas de la vida.

Las hamburguesas, hot dogs y los tacos estan deliciosoooos.
El único lugar en Zihuatanejo para cenar vegano abren de 6pm a 11pm.
En un ambiente con mesas al aire libre tipo food court, a veces hay música en vivo, vale la pena visitar con tu familia o amigos.

Pros: bebidas: kombucha, cerveza de jengibre, limonada albahaca
