Vegan Dining While in Mexico (Photos)

Eating vegan while traveling, especially abroad, may seem challenging at first. But take it from a seasoned traveler: Eating vegan while on the road is one of the best parts of any trip!

You already know how easy it is to eat “American-Mexican” food, but what about the truly authentic, south of the border, flavorful staples of Mexican cuisine? One PETA staffer documented every delicious meal he ate while traveling to Mexico. Best of all? They’re all vegan and completely drool-worthy! See for yourself:

There you have it, folks. Fresh veggies, savory beans, and even mock meats are available across Mexico.

Now which food in the photos above are you craving the most? Let me know in the comments below!

    Please tell us the names of the restaurants and where in Mexico you went. Do you speak fluent Spanish? How did you get a straight answer the food you were eating did not contain lard, pico dillo, and other animal products? I love Mexican food but I usually stick to the guacamole unless I make it myself because I also never get a straight answer.

    What are the names of the dishes, and this must be in Mexico City, or where are these places. Do most restaurants in the more cultured area’s have them? They all look so appetizing, and I’m from San Diego where we have lots of restaurants. How would one ask for a vegetarian, non-dairy dish? I’ve stopped going to some Mexican places here in San Diego because I some times don’t get a strait answer. Unless I go to Chipotle.

    Hi! Would you please share the names of the restaurants/hotels that cater to vegans in Mexico? It would be nice to look for these wonderful places that offer this. And all the dishes look amazing, especially the mole enchiladas and the avocado soup!

    I especially love photo number one that look like loaded Tostadas to me, but it’s a tie with photo number 8 because I also love Chile Rellenos, only these are probably made with no egg…but all of them look so wonderful! I just love the bright colors of veggies!
