veg-friendly California-style Mexican restaurant
L.A. Burrito is a new Mexican restaurant in Bushwick that differs greatly from other Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood. Not only do they offer "California-style" options like whole wheat tortillas and brown rice, but they also offer soy cheese and tofu sour cream, which they make themselves from tofu, soy milk, and oil.
Vegan menu options include burritos, tacos, and salads, since you can get grilled veggies, beans, and soy cheese/sour cream on pretty much everything. There are also tons of already-vegan options, including the Garden Veggie burrito (mixed veggies, brown rice, soy cheese, tofu sour cream, pinto beans, on a wheat tortilla) and the spinach burrito, which has steamed spinach and mushrooms with brown rice and pinto beans in a spinach tortilla.
Both the regular pinto beans AND the refried beans are vegan (they only use oil). However, ONLY the brown rice is vegan, as the Mexican rice has chicken broth in it. All menu items have thorough descriptions so it's pretty easy to see which items are vegan, however, watch out for the "chili veggie burrito", which can fool you because it has vegetarian chili, but contains (non-vegetarian) Mexican rice. Ask to sub brown rice if you want to make it veg.
The dining room has about 6 tables and is clean and brightly decorated. Free delivery for orders over $9.
*NOTE: this place is cash only.*
