The Best Plant-Based Eats in Mexico City
Fine Dining. Street Food. Eclectic Combos.
Not only my fav place in Roma Norte, but it’s the best food I’ve ever had. Patience, please, as I proceed to gush. The presentation, prices, 1932 architecture with seven-plus-meter ceilings, everything was artful. We sampled most of the menu when we accidentally discovered it right before closing time. Words can’t do it justice, and it won’t come up on searches for plant-based eats, so write it down.
Plantasia in Roma Norte
My number-two pick is an all plant-based sushi and inventive pan-Asian fare with creative cocktails and an upscale plant-filled bohemian dream. It feels laidback and fancy pants at the same time. Oh heavens, their inventive crispy wontons, spicy rolls, pho, and curry might be the best you find in CDMX. Perfect for a carb-filled date night.
Paxil Plant-Based Seafood Streetfood
Wanna try the best vegan seafood street tacos you’ve ever had? We did a street food tasting in Roma Norte and they topped the list. Affordable, around $2 per item, and you’ll want to fall overself to get those “fish” tacos, “ceviche,” and oyster mushroom quesadillas. Check their hours, and hit the artist markets in the area afterward on the weekend.
Mora Mora Condesa
This was our go-to place for lunch and dinner. We’d run in Parque Mexico and get a superfood smoothie and kale salad with a tofu avo scramble here afterwards. Their slogan is dedicated to “clean eating,” but they have everyone covered with bowls, burgers, and a health food store to stock up on vegan groceries. Can be painfully slow.
Vegan Ramen Mei CDMX
An unassuming tiny lil hole in the wall in Condesa/Hipodromo with quaint outdoor seating and littered with five-star ratings. It’s a neighborhood institution and always full. Hands down the best ramen we found. Our favs were the orange “chicken,” Korean “wings,” and Tokyo shoyu. You can’t go wrong with any of the noodle soups.
Goy’s Plant-Based Burgers
Confession: we only ordered here online, late at night when we were starving after a long day. Admittedly vegan junk food, but if you need a greasy burger, fries, and a shake, they’ve got you. Weirdly pricey for CDMX, make sure you over-order if it’s late and you’re super hungry.
