Vegan Carne Asada Taco from Mexico City

14th April 2012

In April, the weather gets pretty dry and warm in the low 80s in Mexico City and sometimes you may not want to go out and walk all the way to Colonia Condesa to get some good street vegan grubs. If you are living in Mexico City for a longer period of time, I highly recommend making your own food that you trust especially when it comes to eating vegan. It is really easy to make your own taco as long as you have fresh corn tortillas, cilantro, avocado and lime juice (optional: red onion). You can find plenty of freshly made, especially warm corn tortillas anywhere at the local groceries. But from where I am staying, the only nearest grocery was about 20-25 minute walk away. There weren’t even any decent groceries in Zona Rosa area, I’m not sure why.

Here is a quick taco to make at home while visiting Mexico City, the ultimate vegan carne asada taco with local produces I bought:

  • avocados
  • squeeze from a lime
  • cilantro
  • vegan carne asada (fake soy protein): we found it at local convenience store (you can’t find these at bigger groceries at all, I tried though in 5-6 of them).
  • salsa verde. You can find a lot packaged salsa (different flavours) in most of the local groceries, which is pretty impressive!
