VBR Foodie Rave: Gracias Madre

July 23, 2014By 9 Comments

I grew up in El Paso, Texas, so I luuuuuurve me some tasty-ass Mexican food! Unfortunately, Mexican food is a bit tricky to find vegan-style (oftentimes there’s lard in the chips, chicken broth in the rice, etc.). I’m super grateful to live in the Bay Area where we’ve got TWO fantastic 100% vegan Mexican restaurants, Flacos in Berkekley and Gracias Madre in S.F.!

Today, I wanna focus on Gracias Madre… I’m gonna let these photos speak for themselves, but lemme just quickly say that errthang was HELLLLA tasty!!).

PAPAS AL HORNO – Potatoes with cashew cheese

    Try the flautas! Those were my favorite. Drooool. I was kickin’ it at the LA Gracias Madre, but I’m assuming the menus are the same.

    Hey friend! If you ever make it to Tucson (which I call a slightly better version of El Paso), there are some amazing vegan-friendly Mexican restaurants!

  7. Angie says:

    YUM! I have been there once and loved those quesadillas! They have great margaritas, too.
