Vegan Nacho Taco Bowl
We have a soft spot for tacos and love to experiment with them. Besides classics such as fish tacos (vegan, of course!), tostadas or taquitos, we also serve Korean tacos, ramen tacos, chanterelles tacos or even chocolate tacos. You can find all our taco recipes here.
To be honest – this taco may not be the healthiest, but we all have our moments, when all we need is a good food base in our tummy. So this is your rescue for the next late night or the hangover afterwards. And in the end, it’s not even that fat, because our vegan queso dip is made of potatoes, carrots and onions. So much veggies, ha!
