Last night we went to a Mexican restaurant in Kentwood, El Arriero. I read online they have a few good vegan options and large portions, so I was excited to check it out. For the past several months, the only Mexican I’ve had is from On The Border – they’re pretty good, but there’s really only one vegan meal on the menu. So.
and another plate of beans (made without lard, of course), guacamole, rice (no chicken stock or anything), and some kind of fresh salsa over lettuce. The three tortillas didn’t even come close to holding all the stuff that came with them,
and I ended up bringing home basically a whole second meal. Which I ate later in the evening. It was really good, and I liked that the staff called us amigos 🙂 They were friendly, although a bit hard to joke with in English. Our food came quickly. They didn’t use a ton of spices, so you could taste all the different components kind of in their “natural” state. I just added a *little* salt.
My giant Mexican dinner was only $9.99, well worth the price. Definitely recommended.
