Here at El Camion we’re proud of how fresh our food is – we make our dishes in house and it’s one of the many reasons people come from far and wide to sample the delights of our menu. Which is why we’re just as confident about our vegetarian offerings as we are about the meaty munchies we provide. When you use quality ingredients then the taste really shines through.
Since it’s National Meat Free Week then here’s a little insight into some of the hottest herbivore-friendly items on the menu…
Our nachos are huge bowls brimming with crisp tortilla chips, topped with our famous guacamole, pico de gallo and El Camion House salsa, smothered in cheese – and to make it even more indulgent then why not add black beans and jalapeños? They make for the perfect sharer, or bring an appetite and scoff them down by yourself.
For a nibble, any heat-lover should try our Jaladas – Jalepeno chillies filled with cream cheese that have then been coated in breadcrumbs. Just as good as a chicken wing any day of the week.
Our famous mushroom and spinach quesadilla is a hit whether you’re a carnivore or veggie – filled with fresh veg and oozing with melted Monterey Jack cheese. If you’re trying to convert a meat eater who thinks that vegetarian food isn’t filling enough, then challenge them to a wet Vegetable Burrito. This flour tortilla filled with Black or Pinto beans as well as home-made salsa and cheese with coriander is hearty and kind of healthy. If something a bit lighter takes your fancy, then our classic Ensalada is baby spinach, Cos and Lamb’s lettuce, marinated tomato, sliced fennel and radish and home-made dressing. Is your mouth watering?
You see, vegetables have always been an important part in the Mexican diet. When Europeans arrived in Mexico 1517, the food source of the indigenous people, including Aztecs and Mayans, consisted mainly of corn, beans, peppers, sweet potatoes and tomatoes.
And you know what else is vegetarian? Churros smothered in chocolate. So there’s no excuse not to stay for dessert…
