Vegan by El Zamorano Opens Brick-and-Mortar Taqueria in Orange County
Orange County Mexican food pop-up, Vegan by El Zamorano, is set to open its first permanent restaurant location in Costa Mesa this June. The small business has gained popularity among locals for its wide range of traditional and inventive vegan Latin proteins including asada, al pastor, chicken, cauliflower, and hibiscus. The storefront menu will offer the pop-up staples—tacos, burritos, and Asada Fries—in addition to a broader range of items including tortas, quesadilla, and chile relleno plates. All vegan meats are made in-house along with the pop-up’s signature meltable cashew-based cheeses in flavors such as mozzarella and roasted jalapeÑ. Vegan by El Zamorano will become Orange County’s first brick-and-mortar taqueria.
Vegan by El Zamorano's soft opening is scheduled for June 2 with hours from 10am-7pm. The restaurant is located at 3011 Harbor Blvd #A, Costa Mesa, CA.
