Great tacos! - Edit

Viko is a vegan yet authentic taco stand, with options ranging from chorizo and pastor, to sautéed vegetables and mushrooms in green mole, and as all great taco stands, they make a pretty good salsa. Any vegan, vegetarian or carnivore wanting healthy yet delicious street food will be satisfied with Viko. But remember, it is a street stand in a tunnel beneath Reforma, so don't expect to be too comfortable.

Pros: Great tacos, great salsa, great waters, kind staff

Cons: They do what they can to make it comfortable, but

best taqueria ever - Edit

Viko is the most authentic delicious taqueria in existence, and does it completely meat-free. All home developed recipes using all the available vegan proteins and extraordinary Mexican spices and chiles. A three day trip to Mexico City warrants at least three separate visits to Viko. Get three assorted tacos (pastor, tinga de setas, and alambre recommended) and a burrito (campechano con queso recommended) and the best horchata you’ve ever tasted.

tasty food in a rather hidden place - Edit

I came here after my visit of the anthropological museum (there are even more reasons to come to this corner of the city, such as the Chapultepec castle/hill/park). Since I read about the underground location here on happy cow, I didn't have much trouble finding it; otherwise it might be much harder.
Since it has the specific location in the underpass, it is not too inviting for sitting. Nonetheless I would warmly recommend coming here, maybe taking the food to go and sitting down upstairs/outside/in the park.
The guys working there are very nice and the food was tasty and affordable! I had a seitan burrito can which I can recommend :)
In total I paid a bit more than 70 pesos for the burrito, a drink, and two muffins (for later).

Pros: nice people, good, tasty food, cheap

Cons: surrounding, but easy to solve by sitting outside

Seitan Burrito is Bomb! - Edit

What a cool little place right, snack in the hubbub of the morning. Very cool dude behind the counter ready to explain and suggest items.

A local's delight to see and experience.

wow! So many options, all of them are delicious - Edit

This stand is found underground near the entrance to Chapultepec park. We had 6 different tacos; campechano, alambre, pastor, setas mole verde, setas mole rojo and tepanyaki. Each one tasted different, and all were delicious. I also had the best horchata I ever had! Highly recommend this spot

GREAT VEGAN STREET TACOS - Edit

So the stall is in the underground walkway for pedestrians... I spend part of a day looking for the old location ... but it's under the roadway! There are 6 seats. Great tacos. They even have all vegan sushi.
Great lunch option! And they are extremely nice!

Pros: real vegan street tacos, great housemade salsa

Cons: was a bit tricky to find but worth it

great little spot - Edit

Was happy to see the other review explaining that Viko is down in the tunnel. Once I knew that it was easy to find. There are a few seats if you want to eat there. Was interesting to see tacos, burritos and sushi on the same menu. I ended up getting a mushroom burrito with a spicy mole sauce on the side - which was very tasty and packed a good punch. I was completely confused when I was asked about a drink, but just said yes since I knew it would be a vegan adventure. It turned out to be a deliciously creamy iced chai type beverage. The burrito wasn't huge like it would be in America, but for under 50 pesos for everything, it was quite a bargain!

Pros: price, variety, nice service, tasty, fast, super c

Couldn't find it! - Edit

Tried to find the place for 30 minutes, and failed. It seemed like it was located outside below the Bancomer tower but that location shown in the photos here is under construction. The folks at Bancomer tower said its not there anymore? Not sure..

Caroly 25 Feb 2018 - Hey, I had the same problem until I entered the subway/tunnel under the paseo de la reforma. It can now be found in this tunnel with various other omni foodstands. I already sent in the update to happy cow :)

Fast (and good) food - Edit

Went there a few times in October 2016. Very friendly service, they offer tacos (14 pesos), gringas and burritos (30 pesos) which is a fair price given the area. Good too. They have coffee (10 pesos), tea and some infusions also to offer. ¡Vegan cheese can be added on demand!
In Oct. 2016 they were open from Monday to Friday, 07:00-18:30. Please note that you have to enter the underground passage located near the Lions' Entrance of Chapultepec.

Pros: Good food, Fair prices, Friendly service

Cons: Few opening hours, Few fast-food options -apart from tacos & burritos

Godinez vegan offerings - Edit

Viko is located underneath the huge Bancomer tower so is the hotspot for the countless office workers along Reforma wanting a quick lunch. It really is excellent food and based on Mexican street food with tacos and burritos and the such like. There are a lot of options for different fake meat fillings along with salsas and garnishes. Really tasty aquas to accompany a lovely and cheap quick lunch whether you work there or a tourist visiting the nearby Bosque Chapultepec.

Pros: great location for locals and tourists, very friendly service, tasty food and reasonably priced

Cons: busy at lunchtime , not much outdoor seating
