With all the tasty dishes in Mexico, it is nearly impossible for us (locals) to deprive ourselves of all the flavors we already know. You can trust us when we say: “Vegan, in Mexico, does not mean limited cuisine”, in any way. Thankfully, it is now a lot easier to find incredible food options without giving up the delicious meals we are used to consuming. Now it is easier than ever to find substitutes for these meals. And with travelers coming from all over the globe, and all year long, Riviera Maya must be prepared to offer delicious food, guilt-free, and affordable. Ta’Consciente is one of the highlights for Vegans in Playa del Carmen, ready to make the world more conscious, one taco at a time.
It has been proven that a Vegan lifestyle brings a lot of benefits, among others, a healthier body and mind. But this doesn’t mean we have to give up the Mexican dishes, especially during holidays. Every option on the menu is, of course, free of any animal product, from naturally flavored sodas to local homemade desserts. The products they use are mainly local, with the exception of some ingredients brought from Mexico City. Ta’Consciente is the favorite place for all Vegan locals, International visitors, and even local Fitness celebrities.
If you are looking for veggie options, we recommend the Tlacoyos, with a thick corn tortilla as the base, and mushrooms or cactus on the top. If you are not in the mood for tlacoyos, you can try the chicharron or pastor (always on high demand). From the classic veggie taco to the most elaborated seitan dish. Entrees, like burritos or stuffed potatoes. And desserts, like raw brownies or coconut and banana cookies. In the refreshments department, we suggest Buho soda with lots of Tropical flavors or fresh coconut water. You could visit Ta’Consciente all week, and still not be able to try all the fantastic options they have to offer.
Probably one of the most amazing things about Ta’Consciente is that once you arrive you automatically feel at home. Their service is absolutely perfect, friendly smiles, attention to your order, accommodating your needs, etc. The second best thing? The tacos of course! Chicharron in green sauce keeps us coming back over and over again. Their locations make it easier to find it in Playa del Carmen. Located inside Mercado 30, on 30th street, between 25th and 30th Avenues. Sundays are off, but the rest of the week they are open from 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Inside Mercado 30, you can find other Vegan-friendly options, a souvenir store, and even a nice pool if you want to refresh while enjoying the best tacos in town.
If your holidays are in Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Puerto Aventuras or Puerto Morelos, you will be at a short car ride from Ta’Consciente, and it will be totally worth it.
