Eating en DF

I have just woken up from an afternoon nap in my rented vacation apartment in Mexico City. In a short while I will be getting dressed and having a few sips of mezcal before heading out for some early evening drinks in the nearby gay cantinas.

But you didn’t come here to hear about my leisurely holiday. You want to see gorgeous photos of enticing vegan food, right?

When have I ever let you down? Keep scrolling to see a fraction of the food I have been busying myself with here in Mexico. This city does have vegan dining-out options but what follows is a small selection of my self-catering creations with a few store bought snacks thrown in for good measure.


Vegan brunch included fried herb tofu, fried tomato, papas bravas, totopos y guacamole

Salsa verde and totopos

Esquites – corn, onion, garlic, epazote & lime juice topped with vegan sour cream & hot sauce
