Whenever I tell people I am going to Mexico or I say Mexico is the best or I proclaim that I wanna live in Mexico City, they more often than not say the same thing.
They say, “It isn’t very good for vegans down/over/up there”.
Well world, I have news for you. Mexico City has one vegan enterprise that places it squarely on the map as one of the best destinations on the planet for plant eaters.
Get ready to be jealous. Get ready to imitate the hell out of this. Just get ready.
Los Loosers is as simple as it is staggeringly-impressive. People make vegan food. People bag up vegan food. People deliver vegan food via fixed gear bicycle. In all of my travels in search of stomach satisfaction, I have rarely been so delighted, charmed and fulfilled by a food provider.
The menu is shared via social media between 9am and 10am every morning, Monday through Friday. Customers then message Los Loosers back expressing a desire for the food and a time is given for delivery. All the customer has to do then is be at the agreed spot at the agreed time to exchange money for food.
And it isn’t a lot of money. At time of posting, the menu item of the day will set you back just MX$65. That is about US$4.90 or GBP£3 for either a jumbo homemade sandwich or a bag of pastries. Including delivery!
Check out some of the items I ate during my recent vacation in Mexico City.
The reach of their food isn’t limited to bicycle delivery. Los Loosers regularly pop up at events, markets, stores and festivals to feed the hungry masses. One such event was the annual Gato Fest which we attended during our stay.
The photos below show what was on offer from the Los Loosers crew on the day, including succulent burgers and decadent brownies. A line of people desperate to get some goodness from the food stand was incredibly long and didn’t let up all day.
People love them some Loosers in Mexico City.
If the food is not enough to win you over (you CAN see these photos, right?), Los Loosers go about business in a way that is sure to impress.
They make it a priority to source local ingredients, all of their bread is handmade by them, they always deliver by bicycle and their food is completely soy free.
Your mission in life is now very clear.
