Starting this Wednesday, customers can order the new vegan jackfruit tinga menu items at select Trejo’s Tacos locations.
Trejo’s Tacos offers vegan options year-round, but to celebrate National Vegan Month, they’re rolling out even more plant-based bites! Trejo’s Tacos will launch three limited-edition jackfruit tinga dishes in collaboration with Todo Verde.
Todo Verde’s Show-Stopping Vegan Food
Todo Verde is a vegan pop-up and catering business known for making innovative Latin-inspired dishes. The head chef and owner, Jocelyn Ramirez, has been making strides in the plant-based community since founding Todo Verde in 2015. Actor and restaurant owner Danny Trejo caught word of Ramirez’s work and pursued a collaboration with her to celebrate National Vegan Month and bring awareness to the abundant plant-based foods inspired by Mexican and South American cooking.
Vegan Jackfruit Tinga at Trejo’s Tacos
From November 10 through November 30, customers can order Ramirez’s vegan Jackfruit Tinga at Trejo’s Tacos Hollywood, La Brea, and Santa Monica locations. The plant-based meat alternative is available in three different dish formats—tacos, burritos, and bowls.
“I’m excited to collaborate with Trejo’s Tacos this Vegan Month, to create another culturally relevant plant-based recipe. Todo Verde’s mission has always been to create more dishes that promote awareness and access to sustainable good food,” shared Ramirez.
Danny Trejo and Jocelyn Ramirez Will Host an Exclusive Launch Event in Hollywood
