Vegan cauliflower tacos from Tijuana amaze with their taste combination.

This taco in the style of Ensenada didn't require any animal protein.

Chef Danny Betancourt visited the Mazon Vegano food truck on the 3rd stage of the Tijuana River, on Avenida P. del Ro # 6642, to be exact, at "El Punto Foodtrucks," in this episode of Una Mordida Tacos Tijuana. As the name says, this restaurant provides a variety of cuisines, but what sets them apart is that they are entirely vegan, meaning they are free of animal products.

Two tacos will be sampled on this occasion: one with Ensenada-style cauliflower and another with soy-based "carne asada." Both tacos will cost 30 pesos (1.5 dollars).

Tacos de Asada

The first thing that stuck out about this taco that was given to our host was the soy, which looked like chunks of beef and highlighted the color and texture of this protein. The taco is served in a substantial yellow corn tortilla with soy, guacamole, red onion, and cilantro.

When it came to tasting it, our host remarked on how closely soy resembled a piece of meat but lacked a lot in terms of flavor, as it tasted somewhat flat. He added that the avocado helped this protein a little and that the onion tasted a little spicy, but that this is how the flavor of this vegetable sometimes comes out. The soybeans' feel was characterized as being similar to biting into a pad, which was pretty intriguing. In summary, both the protein stew and the veggies lacked taste, which is why this taco received a 5.5 rating.

Price: $ 30 pesos (about $1.50)

Ensenada Style Cauliflower Taco

It is traditional to eat Ensenada-style tacos with weathered fish; however, Vegan Mazon reinvented this taco using weathered cauliflower. This taco, like the last, is made with battered cauliflower, garden salad, red cabbage, onion, coriander, and chipotle almond dressing and served on a giant yellow corn tortilla.

Although the omelet did not meet our chef's expectations, it was a fair size. When he tasted it, he noted that the capeado flavor was delicious despite being somewhat scorched, that the dressing has a mild flavor that blends well with the capeado and cauliflower, and that the garden salad adds a nice touch of freshness. This cue received a 7.1 rating.

Price: $ 30 pesos (about $1.50)
