Vegan Mulita - layers of corn tortilla and...stuff.
The only true downside was the watery tomatoes, we didn't eat those. We also took a vegan torta to our friend, which is apparently the-item-to-try, but none of us were feeling toasted bread.
Los Gorditos II is an all-vegan cart that was opened this past fall by the sweet owners of Taqueria Los Gorditos on SE Division. The original has had an ample vegan menu in place for over a year and a half now, tried out vegan Sunday hours and flew with the business and community-wise idea with this new cart. You can get a glimpse of the large, extended menu here.
They offer burritos, tacos, mulitas, tortas, nachos (ahhh!), enchiladas, bowls and more - and have tofu, Soyrizo, Follow Your Heart cheeze AND vegan sour cream. You can easily make a vegan cheezy sauce at home any day, but addictively seasoned cheap beans and rice with vegan chorizo over nachos or in a bowl or burrito or tacos and dairy alternatives is too good to pass up.
If you're veg*n in the Portland area, surely you've been to at least one of these carts. Now go to both! Again! How are you not supporting the vegan taco truck within walking distance to the vegan mini mall?? Is it because their hours are 11am-5pm M-Sat? Then go to the original, it's open till 8pmish! What? I'm a fan. And it's silly but still fussworthy, because I honestly prefer the simple beans, rice and avocado dish for $4.50, though I'll indulge in the nachos if I'm really, really hungry.
Vegan Enchiladas - note: the soy cheeze doesn't melt on these.
Vegan Quesadilla. The cheeze does melt in these. This is what I ordered, it sure was melty. Devestatingly, I couldn't handle the immense soyrzio and fake cheeze heartburn so I'll stick to my beans, rice and avocado in the future. Plus, I'm a crispy food fanatic so I don't know what I was thinking ordering something soft....
