There were a couple of menu items that appeared to be vegan if ordered without the cotija cheese, so I tried them both. First up was the black bean hummus appetizer, a generous portion consisting of black beans, tahini, garlic, onion, cilantro, and jalapeño, served with chips. It was a little garlicky for my taste, but good nonetheless.
I also ordered the meatless marvel taco, also without the cotija cheese. The filling was a creative mixture of black beans, guacamole, sweet potato, roasted peppers, pickled onion, and fried peppers. It was definitely tasty!
