As a news story, this blog post is well overdue. Mexico has been serving its vegan-friendly take on Mexican-inspired food since 2012, and I’ve been eating there almost as long. So, this is not a news story, but a big list of various things that Mexico has fed me at different times, and a recommendation to try it some time, if you haven’t.
Mexico’s menu changes every three months to make the most of fresh, seasonal ingredients. There are usually a couple of things on each menu that are vegan by default (listed on their website and in a chart on the wall), as well as a few vegetarian options that can be prepared vegan.
The menu always includes a vegetarian option on its list of soft-shell tacos, which can almost always be made vegan. Tacos I’ve eaten include:
- crispy chickpea tacos with with candied sesame & beet pico de gallo (pictured)
- wild mushroom, fennel & marjoram tacos with pine nuts
- zucchini blossom tacos
- kale tacos
& various others I didn’t take pictures of.
Other things I’ve eaten at Mexico over the last couple of years include:
- burned avocado guacamole
- white bean soup
- perfect little roasted potatoes
- fresh salsa & corn chips
and various other delicious snacks & margaritas.
Mexico has four locations in Auckland: at Britomart, and in Takapuna, Ponsonby and Ellerslie. All four are open seven days, noon until late.
