Cervecería Victoria Coruña

As not too many people know (unless you for some reason love La Coruña), it’s hard to find good vegan food (let alone vegan food period) in La Coruña.

Cervecería Victoria pleasantly surprised me with their wide selection of vegan menu items and they even had a dedicated vegan menu! It is slightly pricey for the portion size, but most everything was delicious.

Ambiance:

Cervecería Victoria has an open, airy and modern space suited for casual meetings and hangouts. I liked that they had their song playlist displayed on their flat screen, since their song selection was actually great!

Croquetas de setas ostra (Oyster croquettes):

Similar to a hash brown but with various fillings inside, these particular croquettes had chopped oyster mushrooms inside and a slightly crispy/soft dough crust outside. These weren’t my favorite and cost like 1 euro each so I don’t think they are worth ordering.

Croquetas de setas (Mushroom croquettes)

As far as texture goes, these were far better than the sphere-shaped croquettes. They were crispier and I like that the mushrooms were kept whole before frying. The standout, though, was the garlic aioli sauce that was absolutely creamy, refreshing and paired perfectly with the croquettes. I actually ordered another helping to pour on the tacos we ordered later!

Passionfruit smoothie

Instead of the usual nestea or coke, I was able to order a passionfruit smoothie with oat milk and found it a nice departure. They also had chocolate as another choice.

Planta de oreo (Oreo dirt pie)

Not gonna lie, this was hands down my favorite dessert I’ve had in a long time. The oreo crumble hid a delicious, light and flan-like oatmilk based (I think) pudding underneath that contrasted perfectly with the cookies. The pudding was also subtly sweet, which I loved. I honestly wished I ordered three!

Tarta de abuela (Grandma pie)

This was my first time having tarta de abuela and I wasn’t disappointed. Though I like it less than the oreo dessert, I enjoyed it nonetheless. It is a higher sweetness level than the oreo one as well as being more dense in consistency.

Forever Vegano

It’s true dedication to name your restaurant “Forever Vegan,” which in my book gets them top props, forever. Their food isn’t too shabby either (actually, it’s downright delicious!!). Located in the snazzy Roma Norte neighborhood of Mexico City, Forever Vegano has a boho-psychadelic-fancy vibe that lends itself perfectly to a date, casual brunch or, just […]

Mi Dulce Jacalito

Probably my favorite (actually, I can definitively say it is my favorite) aspect of traveling is discovering small vegan businesses and enjoying their food & hospitality. Such was the case with Mi Dulce Jacalito (My Sweet Little Hut). The owner served us himself and was super-friendly and sweet. He told us about how he got […]

Fantasia, Plantasia

Zen vibes and trendy plates are what Plantasia is all about. This spot can be described as “upscale casual“ with a palm fronded, Monstera-flocked stone Buddha as the restaurant’s unofficial mascot. Dimly ensconced overhead mood lighting and an atmospheric softcore electronica themed playlist. It was honestly the nicest restaurant ambience-wise that we visited. I will […]

Te amo, Vegamo

Yes, Mexico City has quite a few vegan options, but we found that it was more convenient and time-saving to go to the same restaurant that we enjoyed before. Thus, we ended up going to Vegamo – Centro many, many times during our weeklong stay. *all prices shown are Mexican dollars. Chewbacca waffle sandwich – […]
