JaJaJa, Plantas Mexicanas

JaJaJa, Plantas Mexicanas

Vegan food. There I said it, unless you’re vegan or have heart issues and have to be vegan like Bill Clinton, rare is the person who’s excited for a full meal of plant-based food. It’s usually lacking one or all of the basics, texture, flavour, presentation or umami. So when you get team JAJAJA, you lose your tiny little vegetarian mind and your taste buds do back flips. Complex flavours and textures that stand-alone. They’re not trying to mimic meat, but to bring the complexity that meat adds to meals and they win on all fronts. The nachos were as visually exciting as they were to eat. The mezcal mushroom tacos where everything you want from a mushroom base and the tinga tostada trio was awesome, especially the hemp queso.  We didn’t have time to start day drinking….highly recommended though the Matcha Coconut Martini is… but we will find the time, day or night soon!
