Ahora

307 Dalhousie St. (Byward Market)

www.ahora.ca

This hip and modern Mexican restaurant is very popular and sometimes has hungry guests lining up for tables! The menu features simple, authentic and delicious Latin American cuisine including vegan tacos, enchiladas, burritos etc. One of the best parts about Ahora no doubt is the salsa bar. They serve endless mild and hot tomato salsas, salsa verdes and hot peppers. Go when you have time to wait and bring laid back, hungry friends. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

El Camino

Tacos are the most popular things these days! You can’t leave vegans out of that. El Camino needs a little more coaxing to get fully onboard with vegan options but they know how to make their eggplant tacos vegan as well as their gourmet salsa and some other appetizers. I wager the more vegans who frequent this super popular spot, the more demand for vegan items there will be. We are out and about and demand delicious tacos! Sip a cocktail while you make your case. Wonderful tequila selection.

Taco Lot

999 Wellington St W

A small “lot” located in Hintonburg near Suzy Q and Simply Raw. Go grab a veggie taco with all the toppings for a quick and casual lunch in outside. You can’t go wrong with vegan latin food. Outside seating in warm weather.

Burrito Shack

473 SunnySide Avenue

A casual hang out with seating and colourful and hip Dia de Los Muertos decor and interior brick. If you ask for vegetarian (beans no cheese) you’ll end up with a burrito as big as your head! Many of the sauces are naturally vegan and they can modify or change things for you. Lots of fresh ingredients. The use local produce where possible. The Sunnyside location is perfect for Carleton U students. Go try!

Agave Grill

1331 Wellington St

Little Southwestern cuisine spot in Wellington West. Bright and modern atmosphere. Lots of Veggie options including a vegetarian section which can be made vegan. They also have a bean burrito which isn’t in the vegetarian section of the menu so don’t miss it because burritos might be the best vegan thing since…ever! Agave Grill’s burrito rates up there. Additional vegan friendly sides. Lovely bar seating area and double date night type atmosphere.

Bar Burrito

176 Rideau St

280 West Hunt Club Rd

100 Bayshore Dr (in The Bayshore Shopping Centre Food Court)

A good idea when you are in need of a massive vegan burrito fix. Casual Fast food type eatery. This place is badass. Our favourite is large beans and rice on a whole wheat tortilla with black, pinto and refried beans loaded with salsa and all the veggies and a line of hot sauce. Beware, their hot sauce is legit!
