The Best Mexican Restaurants in Las Vegas
Tactotarian is proof you don't need meat or seafood to have great Mexican food. As Vice President Kamala Harris knows firsthand, the restaurant is dedicated to using only plant-based ingredients in its dishes—not an easy feat to pull off with a cuisine that leans heavy on cheeses and creamy sauces. Yet Tactotarian scores with vibrant flavors in 14 different tacos and other traditional dishes, including burritos and quesadillas. In some cases, meat substitutes like Beyond and Gardein are used, but Tacotarian is inventive with its house blends and recipes that allow jackfruit, hibiscus flower, and mushrooms to take center stage.
How to order: If preferred, orders can be placed in advance online.
The Best Vegan & Vegetarian Spots in Las Vegas
Wait, Las Vegas has not one but two 100% plant-based Mexican restaurants? Well technically there's three if you consider the fact that Tacotarian has two locations. And, really, there's four (see Veganos below). Told you this city was a lowkey vegan haven. There are over a dozen different taco choices, all with plant-based proteins, as well as a selection of appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and vegan ice cream dishes for dessert. Weekend brunch items include breakfast tacos, burritos, chilaquiles, chicken and waffles, and more. The downtown Arts District location also serves cocktails and margaritas!
