Berkeley’s Flacos makes Top 10 Latinx Vegan Restaurants list

Flacos, a Berkeley taqueria that’s been operating with the slogan “All Vegan All the Time” since 2010, has been named to PETA’s Top 10 Latinx-Owned Vegan Restaurants.

The Adeline Street standout is the only Northern California restaurant to make the list.

“Whether you’re in the mood for crispy taquitos or a comforting bowl of pozole, Flacos has a super-tasty vegan dish for you,” PETA Latino Senior Manager Alicia Aguayo said Wednesday in a statement announcing the National Hispanic Heritage Month list. “The restaurants on PETA Latino’s top 10 list put vegan twists on classic Latin dishes that are as taste bud–friendly as they are animal-friendly.”

Chef-owner Antonio Magana, weary of finding only “boring” vegetarian burritos on menus, started transforming his family’s long-held recipes into meat-free dishes and selling them at the Berkeley farmers market in 2001 before opening the brick-and-mortar.
