The first place we checked out was Nirvana. For 75 pesos which is just over $6 you couldn't go wrong. It was a medium sized buffet with a good amount of options to make salads, had fruit, soup, faux meat and some Mexican dishes as well as fresh fruit juices all included in the buffet with only one item not being vegan. Not bad at all. They also change it up a bit everyday which is cool. I went twice and was stoked on it both times.
The second place I checked out was Yug Vegetariano. It's located right in the hustle and bustle of the area by the 'Angel of Independence' monument. My understanding is that this is one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in the city and has been around since 1963. It has an interesting setup.
On the first floor from morning till evening they have a regular menu you can order from. On the second floor they have a buffet that is open from 1-5pm. I find the hours a little odd but I'm sure they have their reason. Unfortunately it wasn't as vegan friendly as Nirvana but still have a decent amount of items in the buffet that were vegan. I believe theirs changes everyday as well as I remembering eating there 3 years ago and there being a lot more to chose from.
The third vegetarian joint we checked out was just before our show in Mexico City at a place called Gold Taco. They were just about to close as we rolled up but our promoter friend talked them into staying open just a bit longer for us foreigners and I'm glad they did. This may have been my favourite of the three. I had three faux chicharon tacos and two tamales that were to die for. Everyone kept on ordering seconds and thirds. So good!
As far as the shows have gone so far, Mexico City and Guadalajara were amazing. So many kids singing along and taking over the stage. In fact I think last night in Guadalajara was one of the hottest, sweatiest shows we've played. Monterey tonight!
