Mexican vegetarian? Why not? As a vegetarian who loves Mexican food, Antonio Magana grew tired of veggie burritos, a frustration that led him to create and sell meatless versions of his grandma’s old recipes. He first started out in Berkeley’s farmer’s markets, but you can find him now in Flacos, a small restaurant in a cute little stone house near the Ashby BART Station.
His taquitos, tacos, huaraches, and tamales are succulent and delicious, and everything is so delicious and flavorful that you will have a hard time believing there is no meat in any of the dishes. Antonio makes a point of using the freshest organic vegetables that grow seasonally in the area. If it is not in season, you will not find it. His food is not only organic, it is also gluten-free.
You have to try huarache – organic corn tortilla filled with avocado, refried pinto beans, rice, cilantro, onions, radish, cabbage, and salsa.
