Authentic, Delicious - Edit

This is not fast food! All orders made fresh to order using locally sourced ingredients. All tortillas are made by hand - three different flavor profiles. Amazing vegan options with unique and authentic flavors. Many menu items change due to local availability of ingredients. Tacos are between $3 and $4 each.

Whittier has Vegan food finally! - Edit

There are a few vegetarian options here in Whittier, but none have a designated and authentic vegan menu like Masataco does. I feel so spoiled to have such quality vegan food in my own back yard. I've been eating here since their soft opening as a food truck. Yes, the wait is long. Like really long on some days and times. If you are starving I recommend calling ahead. That being said, IT IS WORTH EVERY SECOND OF YOUR TIME! Very fresh food, handmade tortillas, handmade vegan cheeses, and handmade seasonings on a variety of protein options. They are family at this point, I go at least 2 times a week if possible. They will make any of the meals(burritos,fries,quesadilla) with any protein of your choice. I get a vegan birria burrito and the vegan al pastor tacos. Don't forget their fresh and unique flavors of agua fresca like vegan orchata!

Pros: friendly staff and owner, vegan and meat options for others, locally sourced and/or organic

Cons: takes time to make fresh food

Excellent tacos - Edit

The Vegan tacos here are absolutely delicious. The handmade tortillas are excellent. I tried 4 different Vegan tacos and both pesto and molé tortillas and all were yummy. My only complaint was the wait. Food is great you may just have to wait a while for it.

Pros: Clearly labeled Vegan options , Friendly staff

Cons: Long wait

worth the wait - Edit

We came in on a Friday at 9:30pm, it took about 30min to get our food. It was SO worth the wait. I had the (vegan) rajas taco, jackfruit birria taco and we shared a birria fries. They were amazing. Everything was made from scratch, including the chipotle tortillas and you could tell. The birria was so juicy and seasoned perfect. The vegan rajas taco was delicious and cheesy, which is hard to pull off with vegan cheese. Can't wait to come back.

Pros: Lots of Vegan options, They have specials so the menu changes, Tons of flavor

Cons: the wait, The bathroom is small

What A Whittier Find! - Edit

What are the odds? Just happened to be looking for late night vegetarian Mexican in Whittier and found we were a half mile from the Grand Opening of Masataco. While there are a few meat items on the menu most everything is designed vegan and the food is five stars in our book (and without gluten). Tried 5 of the 6 veggie offerings and they were all delicioso! Our favorite was the Ube y Mas (mushroom medley). There were two choices of vegan masa tortillas fresh grilled for your order. This will be a must stop for us in Whittier.

Pros: Packed with flavor, Lots of vegan choices, Awesome addition to Whittier

Cons: Hard to choose. Not used to having so many vegan c
