10 Spots for Vegan Tacos in Los Angeles
Whether you’re celebrating Taco Tuesday or just have a craving for tacos that needs to be filled, we’ve got you covered. Here’s your list of the top ten places in Los Angeles to grab plant-based tacos!
At this vegan pop-up, choose from either their Taco Trio, Four Taco Platter, or One Taco a la Carte, and then select a filling of carne asada, pollo asada, al pastor, or barbacoa (gluten-free). Tailor them to your taste by adding toppings from their salsa bar. Or opt to add extra meat or guacamole at an additional charge. If you want to bring Cena home, you can purchase one-pound frozen packs of their meats.
Doomie's Next Mex
If you didn’t know that Doomie’s, an LA vegan spot for comfort food, had a Mexican restaurant next door, well now you know. And, of course, they’ve got tacos. Selections include asada, pollo, carnitas (gluten-free), al pastor, Korean, and Baja artichoke. Be sure to check out their combo options as well to make it a complete meal (i.e. add beans, rice, and salad), or add on other menu items, like tostadas, taquitos, and more.
Head to Gracias Madre at lunch for their Barbecue Jackfruit Carnitas Taco, Potato Chorizo Taco, or Stewed Nopales Taco–all available a la carte. Or at dinner, enjoy their Tacos Plate, which includes two barbecue jackfruit carnitas tacos, and sides of escabeche and black beans.
Atwater Village and Studio City
Order a single taco or 3-taco plate at Hugo’s Tacos. Ask to have your tacos made vegan and opt for the mixed veggies or soy chorizo filling, topped with onions and cilantro and your choice of salsa–all in a soft or crispy shell. If you’re throwing a party, you’re in luck with their Taco Party Pack, which comes with 20 tacos made with your choice of fillings, shells, and salsa, plus their onion and cilantro topping, along with sides of organic rice and beans, tortilla chips, and house-made guacamole.
Tacos Tu Madre
This vegan-friendly joint has plenty of plant-based options! Their vegan tacos include Vegan Eggplant Soyrizo Picadillo (eggplant, soyrizo, crispy kale, pickled onion, and fermented fresno chili) and Vegan Banh Mi (36-hour marinade tofu, crispy kale, pickled carrot, avocado, and crispy onions with ponzu). They also have vegan burritos and bowls.
Custom tacos, burritos, nachos, and more are in store at Sugar Taco—fill them with one of four of their plant proteins (carne asada, pollo, al pastor, and carnitas), along with add-ons like cashew queso, guac, and more. They also serve quesadillas along with desserts like conchas, churro bites, polvorones, and snow cones. And don’t forget to check out their drink menu—aguas frescas, margaritas, cocktails, Jarritos, cervezas, and more.
You can try out a couple of different vegan tacos at this WeHo spot, like their Mushroom and Sweet Corn or Chipotle Tofu Lettuce Wrap. Plus, there are other tacos, like their Grilled Cilantro or Ensenada-Style, that can be made vegan if ordered with tofu.
This organic Mexican restaurant has a few different vegan tacos. Essentially, for each of their different mains (which includes tacos), you first choose a style, and then pick a protein and cheese to go with it. All four taco styles (Cali Green, Barrio Style, Al Pastor, and Baja Chipotle) can be made vegan if you choose a vegan protein (their Vegan Picadillo—a pea-based protein with veggies, or their spicy Adobo Tofu) and vegan cheese (vegan mozzarella or vegan chipotle jack). 9.
While not all-vegan, Trejo’s Tacos has four selections of vegan tacos–Cauliflower, Young Jackfruit, Mushroom Asada, and the new Beyond Meat taco. They also offer burritos, bowls, and vegan-friendly sides.
Vegan pop-up Vegatinos offers three different vegan meats for their tacos–“Chikin,” “Al Pastor,” and soy-free “Barbacoa.” Each is served in corn tortillas, and you can add toppings of your choice at their salsa bar.
