Taqueria La Venganza: Los Angeles, California
Instagram / The Vegan Taqueria
Chef Raul Medina commits himself not only to delicious vegan food but accessibility. Medina has promised that his plant-based tacos will always cost $3, which is lucky for Angelinos since his Taqueria La Venganza was named best tacos at the 2018 Taco Madness in Los Angeles — and this was against tacos made with traditional meat and animal products. Plenty of people can’t tell that Medina’s tacos are actually vegan.
Taqueria La Venganza (Vengeance) is named in honor of Medina’s father, who died of diabetes. “Ever since then I basically just call it a vengeance on diabetes on heart disease,” Medina told ABC news. Currently prepping orders for takeout only, Medina can’t wait to get back to creating pop-up dining events and regular hours at his restaurant.
With chefs like these creating amazing vegan dishes, it is becoming easier and easier to protect the environment with a plant-based diet!
